Great food friendly staff always enjoy eating there. The Agadashi Tofu and the sashimi and sushi platter to share are a must. They also make steamed rice with seaweed and sesame seeds which is unusual and yummy. I would highly recommend Akaba for a casual night out.

Great food and service. Every dish was delicious- We tried the scallops, the eggplant, the special beef, gyoza and sushi. The sushi wasn’t the best I’ve had but would definitely go back.
