Ordered

1 Chosyu
2 rice wagyu
3 chicken Tonkotsu bento
4 teriyaki chicken

A bit too pricey for me since the teriyaki chicken is a little dry
The ramen is good tho, nice quality noodles and quantity is good
The bento, I didn't like the tuna sashimi. I mean I love sashimi, but this one tasted different, not in a nice way.
The rice quality also is not good for a Japanese restaurant.

For a thousand peso bill, my salmon fried Maki and ebi tempura were a letdown.

Maki was good sana but tipid sa salmon toppings, ang sad :(
Ebi tempura, their shrimp is so small and skinny for P400++, undercooked pa but I didn't bother because honestly it didn't feel like customer service is a priority in this place anyway.

When you crave for Japanese, Akira offers your all in craving. It was not my usual meal though- it was a seafood fest. Tagging along Jen, who is a pescatarian we almost had all shrimps. I have to come back though for their beef!

Nothing special. Would choose Kimpura over this anytime. Our bill was P10k for a group of 10. Would have enjoyed more at Kimpura. Service needs improvement too.

Personally, my judgement of Japanese restaurants all come down to their Ebi Tempura.

To be quite honest, while it wasn't 90% batter and 10% shrimp like a lot of the Japanese restaurants around, it wasn't that great... It was ...okay. 128556

The Akira California Roll (in photo), the Fried Rice, the Steak and the Miso Soup made up for it though! And the A+ service of the staff! We were there during lunch, table of 10, and there were at least 4 other tables, but they made sure that there was someone attending to us the whole time. Plus, we were seated at the Teppanyaki table and our chef was amazeballs, he had so many tricks hehehe.

Overall it was a fun time for my family and I! We'd definitely come back 128523

They have lunch buffet for less than 700php that includes refillable iced tea which is really tasty and refreshing..
My japanese pal said their selection tasted like an original jap food.

Wifey was hungry and chose the restaurant. She was craving for sushi do she chose akira.
We Ordered '3 rolls... One was crunchy oyster, spicy salmon, and one has kani. I Should really make an effort to get the proper names!
All the makis are good. Good portion of rice to fish etc! It's just me but I'm partial to simple sushi and sashimi compared to Japanese mayo makis! But I'll Definitely be back!

Loved everything that we ordered. Prices were okay since servings were good for sharing. Courteous and friendly staff.

Got a table outside the Resto due to the smoke coming from the tepan table.

The prices are higher than most places but luckily there was a 15% discount for JCB card holders when we ate here. We were 8 so we ordered 2 beef Teppanyaki sets and 2 salmon Teppanyaki sets. The show was worth the price an the food is quite good too.

The only downside to Akira is the service. Straightaway you can tell that apart from the Teppanyaki chef, the staff aren't so well trained. One of the waiters even dropped a glass of water on my dad, who was luckily in a good mood. Would've given them 4 stars otherwise.

Wagyu Ramen. Nothing special. Was excited of the wagyu beef, but there were only 5 small portions of wagyu beef in the ramen 128546

I was reading my own review of Akira the other day and I thought I should have lunch there soon. So I did.

I ordered the Tonkatsu ala carte for PHP218, plain rice for PHP45 and bottled water for P68 (!!!).

First of all, I am pissed with the bottled water. It was only a 500ml Wilkin's. I know Wilkin's are more expensive than the likes of Viva and Summit but PHP68, are you kidding me? I was expecting a little bit fancier.

Second, I realized that a Tonkatsu ala carte is also good for sharing, especially if hindi ka malakas kumain (aka me). I ate about 3 out of the 5.

I think PHP218 is quite cheap if you're not gonna order some extras, or share with someone. But since I ordered extra things, the bill still came out above PHP400.
