About Sushi Akio
About the restaurant
There’s no shortage of Japanese sushi restaurants in Melbourne, but the scene thins out a little as you stray further from the centre of the city. Down here in Elsternwick, just a couple of blocks east down Glen Huntly Road from the station, Sushi Akio is flying the flag for the world’s favourite Far Eastern cuisine. The selection is concise but comprehensive, with plenty of sushi roll options, sashimi platters, and generous main courses drawn from Japanese tradition – guyniku and pork spare rib teriyaki, Wagyu beef steaks, and ika batayaki. Those looking for a light bite are advised to check out Sushi Akio’s selection of small sushi rolls, bite-sized and moreish morsels ideal for a meal on the run.
