This is a nice small friendly Japanese restaurant with superb food. The atmosphere is more German than japanese minimalist. The food is fresh and the service excellent.

A small local Japanese restaurant serving a variety of cold and hot choices. Can get very booked up on Friday and Saturday in particular so make sure you book. Not an extensive range of sushi and sashimi available but what they do offer is always nicely presented and fresh.

I ordered one salad, one grilled chicken wing and 1 sushi plate. The sushi turned to be a bit dry for me and the taste is average. However it's still a good experience as the staff are very cute and friendly.

Reviews of foreign cuisine (and in particular Japanese) tend to talk about whether a restaurant is authentic, and say less about how good to food actually is. After all, there are also authentic but rather poor places to eat in Japan. Akari was a great find. It doesn't come across as overly authentic in the way it looks - there... More

They serve a lot of japanese food, from japanese curry (カルー)to Sashimi (さしみ). The waitresses and well as the owners are japanese. They are all very nice and helpfull and the... More

Personal service and tasty food is to be found in this unassuming old school local. Its been there for years. A good spread of Japanese dishes. You dont need to do the sushi - which looked good. We did tempura and ramen - yummy.

I have been in various Sushi restaurants in Hamburg and this one is by far the better I have tried. The restaurant is quite small (max. 30/40 people, or even less) then I suggest to book in advance. The owners/waitress (japanese) speak quite good english so if you do not speak german you will survive. Despite their menus are without... More
