My wife and I were craving sushi after work and stopped by here. The staff was very nice and the sushi tasted great. We got the California rolls and enjoyed them.

The veggie yaki soba dish was amazing. I wanted something fresh but I didn't want it to be heavy and that was perfect.

Tried their Ramen for lunch today. Pretty tasty, I'm really trying to get a sense of what traditional ramen should taste like so I'm not sure how I can compare it to the premium modern ramen I found in Boston. Definitely going to be coming back to try out some sushi and bento!

Typically I only order sushi but tonight I tried the Steak Bento Box and it was amazing! There was so much food and variety.

Always some of the best value sushi you will find. Love it.

I want to give 4 stars because who still requires a mask, but the sashimi was some of the best I've had, so I can't. Every piece just melted in your mouth. Customer service was great. Get rid of the mask requirement and I'd give this place 6 stars. Rolls are way overpriced but if you get 2, they are 50% off so that makes up for it.

So good! Made everyone in my family happy which is no small feat. And best San Francisco Roll ever! We live 10 minutes from here and this was our first time discovering place! We’ll be back soon!

Always great sushi. Tropical sunrise, and Nemo rolls are my go to. They never miss. Highly recommend.

My fiancé and I, as well as friends and family, go to Akashi all the time and have been doing so for years! They always have great sushi, and I love their sashimi; the best part is their rolls are BOGO! There was only 1 time in the 20+ times I've went that I ordered scallop sashimi (hotategai), and it was not very fresh, unfortunately but I'll still give them 5 stars because no one can be perfect 100% of the time. I also would never get a fried roll again, anywhere for that matter as we got the deep ocean, and it was rather bland. However, that's my fault for choosing something I already knew I likely wouldn't care for (it just sounded so good on the menu), lol. At any rate, this really is one of the best Sushi Restaurants in Raleigh/ Durham/ RTP if you're looking for amazing food while not breaking the bank like if you were to go to M Sushi in Durham, or even Waraji in Ralegh (no bogo and you'll spend $160-$250 on a date night for 2).. I've been to both of them several times, and M Sushi, for the cost, is the best sushi/ sashimi you will ever put in your mouth on the planet! They literally fly their food in on a daily basis from Japan and New Zealand. I will also note that I've been to 30-40 different Sushi restaurants in the Raleigh/ Durham/ RTP area so please rest assured, I am a sushi die hard and have even traveled extensively across the nation and even internationally eating sushi so you can count on me for a good, truthful review. Here's a couple pictures of our take-out last night, which does not do the dine-in presentation justice, but it was still delicious!!!
