Food and drink were good. Although service was friendly, I would expect more attentive service at a spot associated with a Michelin-star chef.

One of best restaurants I've been to in Toronto, quality in food is absolutely outstanding. You can tell the Chief definitely puts his heart and soul into his dishes.

Visited Akira for my Bf birthday and he loved every dish! The quality of O-toro was excellent very fatty & melt in your mouth. I was very impressed with their sushi rice & soya sauce.. seasoned perfectly I say this because I’m usually a sashimi person as the rice usually takes
Away from the fish. Their Hokkaido scallops appetizer was super
Fresh and sweet & paired nicely with the tanginess of the kiwi. The most outstanding dish would be 48-hr Wagyu short rib! Super juicy, marbled and flavorful with an Au jus glaze. The potatoes purée was buttery rich and smooth. For the hungry fella out there some forgot
To order the Wagyu fried rice.. very savory with caramelized chunk of sweet onion. Our server was awesome and made very good recommendations. Well definitely come back 😋

The food is NOT good. It’s oily and deep fried. Been to a Michelin chef’s restaurant and this was not it. They forgot about one of our food items so 4 others were served then we sat for 45 min waiting for the last item. Absolute waste of money. The “Waygu beef” tasted like full fat ground beef. I could have had the same meal at my local sushi spot for $45. Server was awesome though.

Very disappointing. Workers not even wearing proper masks .. when I had to use the washroom they charged me for a mask. Food is over priced

Everything is wonderful, because of the virus. Customers have to sit outside the restaurant, but that’s totally fine.
Very beautiful and joyful night 🙏🏻

Mostly personal preference - every dish we ordered overwhelmed me with the taste of mayo :(. I much prefer the fresh taste of the fish which was always overpowered by the mayo.
