Akai Lounge - Westfield
9 pieces of assorted sushi and a spicy tuna roll
Toasted eel and cucumber topped with avocado
We always have a great time here. All of the staff are so kind and attentive. And I truly had my most favorite sushi rolls to date! We can’t wait to go back.
Very disappointing considering the ratings, but ratings in general have all gotten inflated. Noisy, but 80's rock music was piped in on top. Waiter was polite, but very amateurish.
Awesome place!! Will definitely be back... The food was well prepared. The staff was very helpful and great.
We made a reservation, bought a bottle of wine, and ordered a good amount of food. Overall we were satisfied until the following occurred. We paid (of which I asked for the check because service was slightly slow but I understood since it was a holiday)and upon arrival of check we tipped and signed. We were chatting for all of 10 minutes when the hostess, or someone who happened to be helping with seating customers, came over an asked if we wanted to get something else or if they could move us to the bar since they had other reservations. I found this to be rude.
It was a holiday which is why we made a reservation. We were there for all of a hour.
This was extremely unprofessional and for this reason I will never go back nor recommend this place to someone.
Very flexible menu if you have food allergies or want to eat low carb. The food was good, but the short ribs were tough.
Love Akai Lounge! Our waiter remembered us from our last visit and couldn't have been more courteous and prompt. Looking forward to our next visit!
Akai is a solid location for sushi in downtown Westfield. It’s also one of the few restaurants to hold a liquor license which is something to note (rare in Westfield). The seating is not optimal as it places tables as close together as possible to maximize the floor space. Additionally the outer perimeter is a single booth which makes getting in and out a little tricky if you’re seated on the comfy (booth like) side.
Overall pretty good sushi but not necessarily so good that it was worth the prices higher than normal. Our service was just okay (server himself was ok but seemed swamped). Not sure if we would bother to go back.
We always enjoy Akai, but for some reason last night the food was extra tasty. Not only was the sushi great (including a small special order from my wife), but the salmon teriyaki was extra good. Akai is not inexpensive, but the food quality is extremely high. Akai Gold Rush is a great drink (but I think it tasted better with the previous Japanese whiskey over the current blend).
Akai is always a great and fun meal.
My favorite restaurant. The owners Lillian and James are the best. All the waiters are fantastic especially Pablo. The atmosphere is cozy, the food fabulous including their drinks you have to try the Grey Goose Saki Martini. Yummm. Best restaurant around
We had such a great time. They were so accommodating with our young daughter and our waiter could not have been nicer. The food was amazing and so were the drinks. We can’t wait to come back
Another great meal. It was a busy Saturday, so we made a reservation. Our table was waiting for us. Drinks are always delicious and we recommend trying something off their special cocktail menu. The Akai Gold Rush is especially good.
Everything tastes good and is prepared carefully. We made a few special requests which were honored. The service is very speedy, but they don't rush you.
We always highly recommend Akai to our friends.
Fresh sushi, good service, and fair prices. Good option when looking for quality sushi.
Everything was fabulous
Authentic Japanese cuisine my family loves it. Highly recommended
Love Akai! Great spot for dinner..
Akai never disappoints! Fabulous, fresh, clean food and service.
Our first visit and will definitely be back. Good and service were great!
Very good food - and great service . Fresh sushi and good drinks !
We go to Akai often. Always great. Lots of interesting items along with rolls that you would expect.
We love the zin salad and the lobster pizza.
Very friendly owners and staff.
This is a staple for us. Service is always good. Fish for Sushi is fresh. This time one out of 3 of my items was "off". My wife loved her drink and dish. I am certain we will back.
Tuna pizza appetizer was the best. Suggest the OMG Roll. Will come again.
Great food and drinks!
The fish is always fresh. Very good food with interesting specials. Friendly service, someone always around to chip in and help. Great management with excellent customer service.
We'll really miss Bo; but, we're happy that Pablo can still help us have a great time.
Very good Sushi and they have Otokoyama brand sake which has to be drunk cold since it's a ginjo premium sake.
I really enjoyed it.
Delicious food and very attentive staff.
Will be back again.
Love this place. The place is clean, the service is attentive and the food exceptional.
Restaurant was very crowded and service was a bit slow at first but food was excellent
Fun place to go for dinner. Good food, fun atmosphere, service pretty good.
Food and drinks were delicious. Great service. Always love seeing friends dining there too.
Short ribs weren’t tender.
Amazing food, the sushi was super fresh and tasty. We also had an UDON appetizer that was very good. Oh, and definitely try the truffle martini!!
YUM - and I don't even eat sushi! Casual vibe, but not casual food. Came for a date nite, my spouse loves sushi (it was pretty and said it was good), I had the skirt steak and my, those wasabi mashed potatoes!! Good all around; definitely will come back!
We went for my boyfriend's birthday, there were 3 of us. We got 3 specialty rolls, Mexican Roll, Bassterd Roll and King Crab 2 Roll. Fresh and tasty. We also order Chef's Special Sushi Dinner. I was told it was also fresh and tasty. The only "complaint" and I dont mean it as a complaint, is the presentation was plain, nothing fancy or decorative. This only bothers me because i was hoping for a fancy presentation due to the birthday celebration! Hey, good food is primary though! The atmosphere was just ok. Service was good :) It was a bit chilly at times but it felt like they noticed and raised the temperature. My daughter went the next day and enjoyed her meal as well.
Great food, busy restaurant - service sometimes a little bit slow.
The waiter messed up three items on our order and then charged us for the more expensive roll which we did not order.
Food was amazing! Lobster pizza with crunchy rice is probably one of my favorite things! Yankee sushi roll was fresh and tasty. Also, the Akai shrimp and rice was well seasoned and cooked perfectly!
