My son and I try to go out for lunch once a month and when we do, it is usually during the week when he is working. So to make it easy on his lunch hour, we try to eat near where he works which is in Plaza Midwood. Last month, we returned to Akanaha Bistro for some sushi. They... More

This place is located in a shopping plaza so it can be easily missed... the selection of sushi is great....everyday is buy one plate of sushi bday get the second one free!!! I think the amount you get is sufficient . A must try is a drink that is served inside a pineapple ... it's pricey $15 with $8 refill... More

This place is good if everyone wants Asian - but some want sushi, some want Chinese, some want Vietnamese. Lots of seating - but often quite full. Good take-out.

Akahana offers a huge variety of asian food but does not do any of it very well. The service is often slow. The food is almost good, but always missing the care that would make it great. The sushi misses the mark. If you have to go here its not the worst but there are lots of tastier options nearby.

Wish I could review the food but with waiting for an hour for the food to come with only 2 other tables in the resturant it not going to be worth it. --Additional info-- I posted the above while waiting on my food and would like to add the following: i asked the serve to please have someone come out...

Wasn't sure I wanted sushi but this place has many things. Check the menu. I got the Crunchy tuna roll and another on (can't remember) but it was two for one!! So not the usually very expensive for not much food. This place was great and reasonable for very exotic food!! Can't wait to head to Charlotte again!

On a recent trip to Charlotte I stopped in Akahana for lunch with a group of a friends. The lunch specials were incredibly affordable and large in size. I highly recommend the Crunchy and Shrimp Tempura rolls.

Perfectly good food, nothing bad. Just not stellar. The menu is varied and has some interesting items, with a good selection of vegetarian entrees. The summer rolls are very good. Sauces tend to slightly too much salt, in my opinion. The service was great, and our waiter very helpful.

A large selection of freshly prepared sushi presented beautifully with all the trimmings. There are also Vietnamese things on the menu which my friends really enjoyed. Very friendly and accomodating waitress. Great service, can't wait to go back again!
