The staff is delightful, and very attentive to your needs. The food is great and my family really enjoyed the Hibachi grilled food cooked right in front of you. They have great food like at Nakato's without the drive to Charlotte.

I love there Mango Chicken and oriental beer. Very friendly staff. Fast service. They also have the chefs that put on a show Japanese style. Haven't been in awhile but will get back soon. It's a one of a kind for Lancaster.

If you want your standard "Chinese" food, go elsewhere. If you want fresh sushi and really good Asian dishes, give Akina a try. Don't be put off if there is not a crowd. They always deliver a great meal.
