First time at Akita. Clean establishment with friendly wait staff. Wish I could give more stars however started out with water glasd that was cracked with a large chip in rim. Meso soup was lacking taste. Calamari was mediocre at best with a jarred sweet and sour sauce. Now for the good part. The eel and cucumber roll, monster roll... More

Akita has excellent sushi, great wait staff and fast service. Easily one of the best places I've visited during my stay in Scranton. The prices are also very fair. A must visit!

I read the reviews and saw some people saying it was very pricey, however 6 pieces of sushi was $16, so I thought that was pretty reasonable. The sushi was very fresh and very well made.

Clean interior and fresh sushi. Located in a nice shopping center. We didn't expect this type of quality sushi in Scranton during our road trip.
