I went here with 4 of my girlfriends and the wait was long. When we did get a table the place was cozy and the dishes (like the dynamite appetizer and the chicken teriyaki) we're excellent. The rolls are amazing and I've been back many, many times. The only difference is, I try to go before the dinner rush hours.
Best Japanese Restaurant in Miami.
Best Japanese food and japanese style in Miami. I lived in Tokyo for 3 years and this place is the closest you will ever get to Japan in Miami. Very good sushi, sashimi, sake, and gyozo. It is worthed to come from far way over there.... BUT it is very recommended to MAKE reservations and still be very patient.
Great small Sushi place!.
This cozy Japanese place had great service, quiet atmosphere and AWESOME food! The proportions we perfect and it was deliscious! I recommend this place to anyone looking to grab some sushi for lunch or dinner...Parking is a bit of a hassle though since its on S. Dixie Hwy. You may have to walk like a block as oppsed to having a parking lot next to it.
Akashi is the best!!!!!!!!!.
Larry and his staff are truly the best and the food there is top of the line. We live off I-75 and Miami Gardens and though we have sushi restaurants close by we really love Akashi. It's not only fresh food and great service, but priced right. True, that the parking is not the best, but give a twirl around the block and something should come up. Can't wait for Akashi's in the Grove.
Sam's Spicy minced tuna w/ tempura shrimp roll, A must try!!!!!!!! NOT ON THE MENU ASK LARRY
BEST SUSHI IN MIAMI PERIOD!.
Don't worry about having to go to South Beach for the "high priced" sushi (Bond Street, Samba, etc.). Akashi is hand's down the BEST Sushi in all of Miami-Dade. I drive almost 45 minutes just to go to this restaurant. It is very tiny on the inside, and can be incredibly crowded. Never in my life have I had sushi like this place. The Alex 1 and 2 roll's are exellent...They are the only place I have found that will put fried white fish in a roll and make it taste amazing (Caliente). They add special touches to all their rolls that break apart from the traditional California roll. LOVE IT
Try the Sushi for Two!!.
I love Akashi. It's a small place and doesn't look like a winner on the outside...but the food is amazingly fresh and delicious. You will have to park at the Sunset Place parking deck--about a half block away. I'd be safe and make a reservation...there's not much room in there to stand around! The Sushi for Two is HUUUUUGE and comes out on a wooden boat. Just order it, you won't be disappointed!
So far I have yet to be dissappointed with any sushi order I make at this restaurant. The quality is excellent and the presentation is very pleasing. The sashimi here is especially good. Unfortunately, this is not the place to go to for some good sake.
If you're looking for exotic sushi, then this is your place! It's by far the BEST sushi place in Miami...and you get you're $'s worth! I've been coming here for 7 years now and I've tried PLENTY of other places...so far, nothing beats it.
