My second time coming - the first time I was blown away however this time I thought the fish was less fresh. Service was amazing though!

Everything is wonderful, because of the virus. Customers have to sit outside the restaurant, but that’s totally fine.
Very beautiful and joyful night 🙏🏻

Mostly personal preference - every dish we ordered overwhelmed me with the taste of mayo :(. I much prefer the fresh taste of the fish which was always overpowered by the mayo.

I had an amazing date night at Akira Back. Incredible atmosphere, very tasty food, and our server was very knowledgeable on the menu and funny! My boyfriend and I don’t usually do date nights at places like Akira Back downtown, but Our experience that night was worth every dime. After dinner we went to the rooftop bar called Kost, and the manager Elijah was welcoming, friendly and made it a fabulous experience for us. Highly recommend!!

The food is excellent. We had the chef tasting menu and it was prepared to perfection.
The noise level is a little bit loud.

Wow, we really loved the food and service here. We are big fans of omakase, and this place has a really interesting menu.
We did the omakase with the wine/saki pairing, and thoroughly enjoyed all. Service was fast, pleasant and efficient, and the decor was pretty cool too.
Will DEF be back for more...
