“Terrific value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

We're from the SF Bay Area and commute between the Bay Area and Riverside on a regular basis. In the Bay Area, Japanese restaurants tend to be on the pricey side so we tend to go for special occasions. We were surprised to see on Akina's menu all our favorite items which cost much less than we are used to. We have been to Akina several times now and we usually order the 3-item combo dinner plate which include - by choice -- sushi and sashimi, although one can order teriyaki beef, chicken, or salmon; pork or fish katsu; BBQ short ribs (yum!) etc. We once ordered the Akina boat but it was too much for two people so we brought the leftovers home. Meals come with miso soup, salad, rice and orange. There is a long menu listing a variety of sushi rolls. The ones we had were delicious and filling. The best part about Akina is the hot sake which Akina offers at half-price all day long. This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Riverside.

“Great Value, Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

This a great place to eat if you have a large party or are celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday. The restaurant seems to be divided into two sections: one for sushi and one for food prepared on a flat top in front of diners. I guess that's the akina teppan section -- that's where we ate.

Our party of seven was seated around a large grill/flat top cooking surface. Then the chef came out and entertained us while preparing our food. The meal came with a small salad and a small bowl of soup. Both were good. Then the chef prepared fried rice, steak, chicken, shrimp, and salmon which we ordered off the menu. The chef entertained us with his knife skills and humor. Overall, the meal was delicious. I loved the fried rice and the salmon I ordered was prepared perfectly. The other members of my party also enjoyed the food.

The value at Akina Teppan & Sushi is very good. I got salad, soup, appetizer, and entree for under twenty dollars. That makes it a great place for a celebration.
