WOW! What a difference! Akemi now occupies the same space at 1695 Solano Ave., as the old Miyuki which no longer exists. The decor and menu are completely updated. And, the food is FABULOUS! This by far is the best Sushi Restaurant in Berkeley. Expensive - YES! And, the quality - SUPERB!
I ordered a 10 piece sashimi dinner. At any other restaurant this would have been a 20 piece meal. The sashimi was thickly sliced, and very fresh. Served in a traditional manner, Akemi has the best sashimi I have ever tasted. And, the hot dishes are excellent as well.
The decor is simple, brown tones, simulated wood; traditional Japanese in style. If you're looking for inexpensive combo plates served in a brightly lit restaurant on formica tables, Akemi is not the place for you. The restaurant caters to a young, hip eclectic Berkeley crowd. This is a happening place serving really good food! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
