I ordered habachi in the dining room. My filet steak was perfect however there were so so many mushrooms in my veggies. I have never seen that at any other place. It was like I had stir fried mushrooms with a splash of carrots. We ordered a side of broccoli which took 30 minutes to come out. Very odd! The stir fried rice was just ok. The sushi rolls my husband ordered were good but very expensive. We used to go to Akira every week but it’s been awhile. Not sure we will rush back

Staff was nice and the food was great, but we felt a little rushed to order. We arrived about 10 minutes early for our reservation and were immediately seated with a family at the hibachi table that was already done their salads and appetizers. We felt a little watched when looking over the menu since the staff and family were waiting for us to order.

Always love Akira and their food! But this time I was seated in the side room...I felt like I was eating in a hospital cafeteria! The lights were so bright. I wish there was a little more ambiance for my Friday night out.

This was our anniversary dinner. We have gone to Akira many times with large groups and enjoyed the hibachi. Food was as good as always. Room was nice ACCEPT for small bug that was flying around our wine and food. After swatting many times what I thought was 1 bug was a ton of them crawling all over the wall! Very disgusting. Thankfully never saw them in hibachi area. We will not being going in that area again!!

We were very disappointed after this experience. Our food took over 45 minutes to come. There were three of us in our party and two had hibachi and one had sushi. The hibachi came first with an apology from the server saying the sushi chef was backed up. We were just about finished with our hibachi when the sushi came. While the restaurant was busy, this is unacceptable. We were in the restaurant for almost two hours.

My kids love the Hibachi side of this restaurant for their Birthdays and my girlfriend and I really enjoyed the sushi side on our date nights there. Always a great time and with it being a BYOB, it helps to keep the costs down.

Great place for dinner. The food and the service was awesome, especially with our gluten issues. Would highly recommend them. On a side note, unfortunately there was a 10-11 year old girls soccer team there celebrating their championship, and the dining area was VERY loud. This isn’t a reflection on the restaurant, but the side room we were in didn’t shield us from the louder noise.

We met friends that were in from Houston TX. They were staying in Moorestown NJ. This was such a surprise dining find. We are all sushi lovers and everything we ordered was freshly made and delicious. We had two bottles of white wine that were perfectly paired with dinner. All four of us throughly enjoyed our time spent dining here. We never felt rushed as we sat and talked. This was a very good night spent with good friends and great food. Thank you Akira.

We had the chicken Teriyaki and the shrimp tempura. Both were perfectly cooked. The tempura was crunchy and the tempura sauce was very good. My only complaint is that while the shrimp tempura entree had many of the shrimp tempura, there was either too much batter on the outside or very skinny shrimp inside.
Service was excellent.

This was the best sushi I’ve ever had! The salmon just melted in my mouth! The hibachi was also delicious! Everything was cooked perfectly! But I can’t speak enough about that sushi! What have I been eating elsewhere??? Can’t wait to go back!

Akira 2 is amazing! First of all, we couldn't believe the number of people who just kept pouring through the door, coming into this place! The service was fast, gracious and competent. The food arrived in a very timely manner and the waitress wasn't the least bit harried by the number of people and no one seemed to be left wanting. The sushi was fresh and flavorful, while the tempura dishes were served hot and well seasoned. Definitely looking forward to a return visit.
