    Since every other tip has the BOGO covered, I'll mention they clearly heard the feedback on slow lunch service and raised the bar- outside seating was awesome and service was great!!

    The Dragon roll is brash and great with slashes of fire tempered by sweet eel and avocado while a sly hint of salty roe seduces the crispy soft shell crab on the Spider roll. Read more

    Tried nigiri here, sushi quality is ok. Subpar compared to other Charlotte sushi I give it a 2 out of 5.

    The fresh fish, easily viewed in the long glass case along the sushi bar, is bolstered by precisely cut strips of vegetables and enhanced with the expected sauces. Read more

    The menu at Akahana is more than sushi but does reflect the current popular Asian dishes in an assemblage of tediously familiar entrees. Read more

    The akahana signature pho is a serious gang bang, bukaki style, on your palette. The filet is amazing as long as it comes on the side. Otherwise you might as well eat doo doo pho. Get meat on side

    Service is astronomically slow, even when they're empty. The food is delicious, but I wouldn't recommend it as a place to grab a quick lunch.

    Not impressed. Credit card machine down, out of squid salad, sushi wasn't very fresh and a little on the warm side. My tip: go to sushi 101 instead.

    Starting off your meal with the crab wontons is a must. They've got awesome fresh flavor and the portion is generous.
