Love the teriyaki salmon and the sashimi here. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the sashimi dishes have large portions and are good quality.

Came here to try out their gigantic sushi rolls for dinner. They have a small sushi bar that sits 6 people but also gave a medium sized dining room. They provide miso soup and edamame for all customers. We ordered the chirashi bowl, hand rolls, and the rainbow roll. The chirashi bowl was huge but the selection of fish was subpar and did not include tuna or uni. The chirashi came with Salmon, yellowtail, akinomo, sweet shrimp, white tuna, Ikura, seaweed, and seasoned octopus. Several pieces of the salmon tasted fishy, so questionable on the quality of the fish. The scallop and Ikura Handrolls were very good and would recommend. The rainbow roll was Huge. Unfortunately the tuna on top of the rainbow roll was not the best as it had chewy tendon in the tuna meat. Overall has better sushi elsewhere but worth a try for their Jumbo rolls. They also have a small parking lot.

I got the chirashi bowl recently after not visiting for 10 years. The bowl used to have uni and much more monkfish liver. Now, it has very little premium ingredients. The price hasn’t inflated relative to other places, so the value is good. However, I wish they’d introduce a “premium” bowl that’s more like the original.
Food was always good after all these years. Big portion. Well prepared! Great service as well. Just the air is not fresh and too smoky from kitchen I believed. Need to put a bigger fan on the
This is a very good neighborhood Japanese restaurant with a nondescript outer decor, but once you go inside it's the Japanese restaurant you expect it to be. The chirashi bowl is the best one I have had and is big enough for two people. The fish quality is fresh and the temperature is just right. We ordered the boat and everything on it was delicious, but the karaage was slightly overcooked. I'll definitely be back when I have a sushi craving.

This is a high quality Japanese restaurant with a moderate pricing. The foods are fresh and tasty. The service staffs are friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is old and may need a renovation to increase more seating. I highly recommend this restaurant and are still going back to satisfy my sushi cravings.David YoungRestaurants EnthusiastRowland Heights, CA
Came here for the Chirashi bowl and extra large sushi rolls. The fish tasted fresh and had good flavor and texture. The staff was responsive and the food came quickly. The Chirashi bowl is huge and can be shared by 2 people.
Definitely be ready for a wait, but the food is well worth it! The chirashi bowl has these big slices of sashimi and it's the perfect to share with others.
Best rainbow rolls I've ever had!Check out the hidden gem Akasake for its rave-worthy sushi. Grabbed my standard go-to rainbow roll so I didn't get the greatest photos, not expecting the flavor adventure that soon followed.$28 for a roll sounds pricy but the size of this hand-cut rainbow roll can't be captured on camera.I have a reputation for my ravenous appetite especially when it comes to seafood and sushi. In my hay day, I once nearly singlehandedly put an all-you-can-eat shrimp restaurant out of business. I was almost defeated by Akasaka and had to take a few hour intermission to finish just one roll.Make a trip now you can thank me later.
First time came here was 20+ years ago. Everything was fresh and huge portion. Was told owner sold the Resturant 10+ years ago. Quality stay the same, portion was huge as before. Their signature dish is Chirashi bowl, can definitely fit two man. Definitely worth to try. But remember don’t over order. Enjoy ?
I have lived in South CA for the last 20 years and have had sushi in hundreds of restaurants. My family and I have sushi almost twice a week and are open to discovering new places. No place like this. Fresh fish, huge portions, and the lowest prices compared to the size of all areas I have been to.
price is high but portion big they gave a lotnot my type i like more variety and rarebut its good my friend like it
Great service and food from an Authentic hole in the wall Japanese restaurant.The restaurant is cozy with a nice feelThey start each table with soup and edamame when you're seated.The lunch portions were larger than I expected for dinner. I had the Sashimi and Salmon Teriyaki lunch combo. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the 6 large fresh pieces of sashimi. The food was flavorful and nicely prepared.The staff was amazing with excellent service.
The best sushi place in town, it is always the "hole in the wall" places that are awesome. This place is very small and very intimate, so get comfortable for tight spaces.Outdoor dining is available when weather permits.Parking: Parking is very limited, so carpool.
Been coming here with the original owner for many years. There was a period of time that the shift made the quality and the service drop. So, today we decided to see if it got better and we were glad it did since it used to be our favorite place.The prices look high but it's because the portions are big. We usually order 2-3 dishes to share for a family of 4 and we leave full.The space is very small, so expect long wait and to be seated in close proximity with other people.Tonight there were 3 staff serving all the guest which was not sufficient. Our drinks were not refilled as it used to be but it's understandable since after covid, many restaurants are struggling in hiring people.If you were like us on the fence since the original owner passed away, you should definitely give it a try. They kept the same, original flavor, portions and flare.
