Akira Japanese Restaurant cooks up an array of delicious dishes available for dine-in and takeout, including its newly introduced lunch service that’s available from 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Mondays-Fridays.
Chef and owner Taiki Kawai and his team prepare traditional Japanese cuisine featuring local ingredients made meticulously to order.
The talented chef specializes in the kaiseki style of Japanese cooking that incorporates small course meals infused with the freshest ingredients, which results in exquisite flavor, beautiful presentation and a memorable spirit.
“I want our guests to enjoy Akira’s food and excellent customer service,” Kawai says. “We continue on because of the support of our customers — they’ve brought us to this point, and I want to do my best to keep guests coming back again and again through the love for my art through each dish we prepare.”
Situated conveniently in the Eleven50 Building on South King Street (parking entrance on Young Street), Akira Japanese Restaurant is easily accessible for those stopping by for a dine-in meal, or anyone wanting to enjoy tasty to-go items.
Deluxe Chirashi Sushi and Miso Soup ($35) bring together some of the freshest fish selections available and includes a bowl of sashimi.
Akira also features delicious soup entrées including Yuzu Chicken Ramen ($12.50). Akira Nori Bowl and Miso Soup ($15) is another popular choice, as rice and seaweed are topped with fried chicken, vegetables and grilled fish.
