Near the University of Miami and right across from the parking garage of Sunset Place, this "hidden gem" of Miami attracts university students, business types, dinner and movie goers, and families. This place is for everyone. The restaurant is an adorable little place, with very dark lighting and an amazing saltwater fish tank that sets the mood all the way from the sushi bar. The menu can only be described as all encompassing; you'll find everything from your basic teriyakis and tempuras to tasty specials, the best sushi boats in town, generous and artistic preparations of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and shrimp. Akashi Restaurant serves guests for Lunch, Dinner, and Late Night. Reservations are accepted, and the dress code is casual.
If you live in or frequent South Miami, you've seen Akashi. It's that small Japanese joint nestled a block from the Shops at Sunset Place and adorned with two large graphics of a koi and a baby-like geisha. According to the restaurant's website, other than being a city in Japan renowned for its seafood, akashi means "bright stone." And though this windowless eatery is a stone's throw from bustling South Dixie Highway, the ambiance isn't very bright. It's like walking into a dim, narrow, brownish trailer lit by a glaring yet attractive fish tank behind a sushi bar. Service isn't very friendly or quick, but the food, namely Akashi's assortment of "exotic sushi rolls," is tasty, especially if you're a novice to Japanese cuisine or a fan of fried delights such as the dragon roll. Most "exotic rolls" include shrimp or crab; are packed with avocado, masago, and/or cream cheese; and come drizzled with eel sauce or spicy mayo. It's a great take-out spot for locals but not so great if one of your expectations includes a little TP while using the restroom. (Source: www.miaminewtimes.com)
