This restaurant does not accept private calls...how ridiculous is that? Maybe you would rather use another number than the listed one, or you're a celebrity, or you've had stalker problems and prefer to give your cellphone. Whatever. Too bad, because now I'll never know what the food is like.

I ordered in lunch from Akina. I am not usually one for writing reviews, but I felt compelled to, after the disappointing lunch I had. I ordered a chilean sea bass appetizer that was so dry (something that rarely happens considering the oiliness of the fish with some sort of weird barbecue sauce on top) and vegetable tempura, which was soggy and consisted of 2 different types of vegetables....To wait one hour for delivery, pay 20 dollars, and receive this cat food is unacceptable.

My girlfriend and I went there the other day for our six month anniversary. We were looking for something low key and not to NYC. The place is small but still allows you to have a conversation and it doesn't get to loud inside. Byob is always a plus and they charge a modest $5 cork fee. They offered tons of specialty rolls and they were all very tasty. The fish was extremely fresh and their spicy rolls were perfect. All in all I would definitely recommend this place. The atmosphere is great, food is delicious and the service was top notch. I would recommend this place to younger people as its a great place to go before hitting the clubs!

I love sneaking out to Akina for a lunch time respite. The hostess / waitress is amazingly attentive and pleasant, and the sushi is fresh and delicious. It is a bit small, and the top 40 music isn't exactly ambiance, but it's a solid, yummy lunch spot on the East Side.

this sushi is so trustable and so yummy! There is never a stale or bad fishy taste in your mouth! The fish is so fresh! The place is small but cozy and nice quiet place to eat with friends. Sushi entrees are such a great value! The tea is not watered down and nasty like other stores. The decor is beautiful and the waitress are nice and they consistantly serve of water and tea. I love it!

First off.. the place is SO small.. you are hovering over people while you are waiting to be seated. It get so LOUD bc the place is so SMALL that you cant hear your own conversation. The sushi is NOTHING to run home about. I didnt even think it was that good. My boyfriend got habatchi.. which looked semi okay. While we were finishing our drinks after dinner.. the waitress asked us to get up so other people could sit down which was extremely rude. BYOB is cool.. but dont bring too many bottles.. they charge your 5 bucks for each bottle you bring in!
