My sister and I love Japanese food especially California rolls which is what we ordered. We ate, went home and both got violently ill approximately 2-3 hours later. We were both sick for days and weak. Her son came home after school and ate the left-overs and also got ill. We never went back.

One nice thing about this restaurant's location is that an excellent sushi takeout place, Sea Ranch, is next door, so you have two choices for Japanese food. Akai Hana has very good combination bento boxes as well as a good assortment of udon and soba noodle dishes. For the vegetarian there is a healthy choice combination that includes miso soup, tofu steaks, seaweed salad, cucumbers, a california roll, and spinach. The menu is quite extensive, and the prices are reasonable.

delicious authentic japancese food. sushi is delicious as well as their noodle dish. the only thing is that it can get very busy so you do need reservations (well highly encourage it for evening times), and if it is busy then their help tends to forget about you.

I come to this place several times a year and the food is always very good. The service is often quite abrupt but they get the job done. I love all of their rolls and box lunches too. Conversation friendly for that business lunch. Good value.

This is a great place to dine in or carry out. The food is consistently delicious and fresh. The sushi is wonderful and lots of traditional offerings. These days there are too many Americanized sushi dishes. The restaurant is spacious and clean and does a brisk business. We always see a Japanese people eating here - a good sign.
