    Sunday they had happy hour all day. It's a fairly new restaurant beautiful inside. Their food is very good it's our second time here and I wish them success.

    We ordered steamed dumplings which were delicious. We had egg rolls as,well and also very good crispy not oily. We also had 2 pieces of albacore nigiri...so delicious!

    Finished off with a shaggy dog was 9.95 in HH. Very impressed flavorful and delicious. Japanese beers were 3 bucks in happy hour Sunday so all and all a great experience.

    SO and I are huge fans of the Akashi Kingwood location and were really excited to hear the owners decided to open up a new location on Kirby! Since the restaurant's opening, we've been several times and each time has lived up to the standard we expect. Service has been fairly good for being a newly opened restaurant with everyone being attentive and speedy with delivering our food.
    Akashi has a huge menu so we always order different rolls when we visit. They are all creative and delicious. All of the rolls are fantastic, but the Kirby roll is definitely our favorite out of all. Everything is also priced pretty fair. You can get several rolls and a few pieces of nigiri for about $50 and leave feeling stuffed.
    This Akashi location will definitely become one our regular sushi places in Houston.

    Pro-tip: They have happy hour all day on Sundays.

    I was blown away. I used to come to this location when it was Marco's so I didn't know what to expect when I walked in and it had been remodeled into a sushi joint.

    The dcor is BEAUTIFUL. Very chic and relaxing environment, I was very impressed. The server was delightful and polite as well as the hostess. I really enjoyed the food as well - the spicy tuna roll and the seaweed salad were very good portions and incredibly tasty.

    I will definitely be back!

    An excellent hidden gem you wouldn't expect to find in this area. Been there multiple times and am yet to be disappointed. Try their Hokkaido bake scallop - a neat novelty. The servers are extremely courteous (a true portrayal of the overtly kind Japanese culture). If you're looking for a signature sushi roll, the king lobster roll is a good pick!

    Great service. Got some Jalapeo Poppers as the appetizer and three specialty rolls. Look for the recommendations. Their spicy rolls aren't that spicy, but then again nothing is spicy to me.

    Enjoyed the atmosphere, very welcoming. Enjoyed the service, food was good, the only complaint is that the avocado was slightly brown.

    Just went there. Real nice ambience. Quick order and food delivery. Nice staff. Loved it. I had the shaggy dog, dancing tuna, burning man and miso soup. Fresh and tasty.

    I am a long time supporter of Asahi, the OG sushi place in this shopping center. It has a nice vibe so is suited for the less casual of nights.

    After seeing this place was open 30 minutes later than Asahi on a Friday night, we decided to give this place a try.

    This place is bigger than expected and their main focus is sushi and wine, but we are saki and sushi people.

    Our waiter was genuinely nice and suggested a few rolls. We ordered the Lady Gaga and Art of Mahi. The lady Gaga brings the heat with the jalapeo placed on top.
    The real winner was the Art of Mahi roll. It doesn't have the traditional rice but oh my goodness the flavor! It's life changing, and I've been craving this roll ever since....

    I don't know if this place can pull me from Asahi but they will be getting my service for the Art of Mahi roll mmmmmmmm

    Thought this place was great, a little skeptic at first when I pulled into the parking lot. However the food and service was excellent. The restaurant is nicely updated and has modern decor. All the fish was fresh and came out quickly.

    Great place. Big bar and plenty of seating. Ambiance is nicer than the typical strip mall sushi joint. Check it out and you won't be disappointed.

  • *****

    Very nice establishment with a very nice ambient. We started off with the egg rolls and hot sake which were delicious. Then we had the vegas roll and let me say they make some really good sushi here for sure! We both had Chinese dishes, General Tso's and Sesame chicken, and both dishes were really good! Honestly didn't expect to find such good Chinese food in this area but they are definitely doing it right here. I would recommend this place to anyone. They also have a really big bar with 4 TV's to watch sports.

    Better than Asashi next door, who had worst service ever. Akashi is super friendly. I come every other day. Staffs are super nice and friendly. This place has been my usual after work dinner spot. Go to this one instead of Asashi.

    Fair price for really good food

  • *****

    Fresh sashimi, baked scallops, dragon and Phoenix (very balanced combination of 2 famous dishes) the interior is really nice.

  • *****

    Akashi & Asahi (the other sushi place in the plaza) has comparable prices (some items are more expensive in Asahi and vice versa)

    However Akashi has a much wider selection of sushi, both traditional and fusion. Akashi does much more extravagant presentation of sushi. If your table order 2 or more, they are usually combined onto a larger plate with decoration.

    The most obvious difference between them is that Akashi has a Chinese wok menu, and a very good one. You could have a cheap wok meal for lunch and then share a few sushi plates with friends at night.

    Akashi is styled like a fancy bar while Asahi a Japanese themed sushi place. In Asahi you even get servers greeting you with Japanese. So if you want the whole Japanese package, go to Asahi. If you want your friends to more likely enjoy the food, go to Akashi with a much wider selection of food.
