We went there with friends last week. This was the first time I'd visited the hibachi room in the rear, and was looking forward to it. As we waited at the bar for our friends to arrive, I found the service to be impersonal and haphazard. And this was on a quiet evening at the bar. Seated in the hibachi... More

Me and a friend decided to treat ourselves to a hibachi meal. Even though there was just the two of us the staff was so nice and let us have dinner at 4:30 pm. Absolutely impeccable service. Even though we were both very indecisive the waitress put up with us and was informative and beyond helpful. I am a front... More

Went recently with my daughter because she heard the hibachi was fun and good. We were seated in the front window at a table for 2. Not going to go into the details but entrees came out with app plates on the table. Waitress comically tried to negotiate moving plates around on the table to make things fit. Should have... More

We were there on a busy Saturday night. The waitress was very kind and attentive and our food arrived quickly. I usually order tuna sashimi when I go to a sushi restaurant and this was by far one of the best and freshest tuna I have ever received. We were a party of 6 and the waitress pointed out to... More

Our group booked a table for 10 the day before, but the receptionist incorrectly wrote it down for the following day (we wanted to be seated at the habachi grill), but we had to wait 20 minutes for butted together small tables in the open area. - it was too noisy to talk to each other. The waitress did not... More

Great selection with seasonal additions to menu. Good friendly service. Great presentation, colorful, well made, fresh, and really tasty! Both cooked and raw rolls and sushi just really well done, would go again.

A pleasant surprise to find such delicious sushi during our shopping trip to Brunswick. Traditional Japanese steak house and sushi bar. Yummy!

Aki has more of the standard sushi fare without the bells and whistles of special rolls that most places try to woo you with. We don't come here as often, and it is never as busy as Little Tokyo, but when we do we always get a good, fresh sushi meal. We had urchin one time at the recommendation of... More

Sit at the bar, in the dining room or the hibachi tables. There's plenty of room for everyone. The hibachi room is fun and private. The food is spot on.

We really like the sushi here but the restaurant is not as clean as the other sushi restaurant in town. That is why we just don't frequent as much. They do have the chop chop thing that appeals to lots of people.
