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.
