Convenient location from our work near the airport makes this easy to get to. Fun entertainment as they cook your food in front of you on the hibachi grill. Good portion size combined with a budget friendly lunch menu is a hit. Depending upon the time you arrive you may need to wait a bit to fill a table. This is the third time for our lunch group, will keep it in our rotation.

I went here on a dinner date in the middle of the week and it
wasn't that busy. Akira is a nice japanese style restaurant where they cook the food in front of you, and the chef puts on a show. The shrimp was really good but the steak was a little over cooked. The veggies and rice were also really good. The prices are not bad except for the lobster which seems to be a little high. I will go again soon, First impressions were pretty good.

There was a WORM in my salad and plastic in my veggies. The rest of the meal was overcooked and substandard. The owner not only did not comp the meal or apologize, they did not even replace the salad with a new one! They gave us a $25 gift card which we will not be using. DO NOT EAT HERE!

We go here for lunch when we are in Plainfield. The chefs put on a great show and the food is great, the chicken teriyaki is my favorite, it's a fun time watching the chefs prepare the food and it's always fresh, shrimp and scallops are good too. Bring the kids, they will love it

My hubby and I visited Akira Japanese Steak House last night (Saturday). We arrived at 6:45 pm. Wasn't terribly crowded. We were finally seated at 7:40 pm with a group who had made 6 pm reservations that were not honored. Our waitress showed up about 7:05 for drink orders, but forgot to bring them. For 20 minutes. Eventually, Noy, who was our chef (1 of 3 for many tables) did a fantastic job! Very entertaining and great food! Fifteen minutes after asking for our checks, the other party and us decided to go to the desk to pay. They couldn't find our checks. Finally, after refiguring the checks, and after both of us telling the owner we deserved a large discount, she gave us $5 off and ran our card. When printing the receipt, their system failed. We don't know if our card swipe worked, and the other guy told them he was sorry, but had to leave. Our waitress told us it is the worst place to eat or work! Ruined our later plans, as well as our family's later plans, as we were all Planning events centered around the grandbabies, but after finally getting out of Akira's at about 9:30 - 3 hours later - it was impossible. Worst service I can remember! If you DO go there, ask for Noy as your chef! You KNOW it is bad when the waitress tells you it is the worst place to eat or work!
