RIVERVIEW — A freshly renovated Akira Hibachi & Sushi Bar has taken over the location that Tokyo Japanese formerly occupied at 13420 Boyette Road in the River Springs Town Center.
The restaurant, easily visible from the corner of Fishhawk Boulevard, features a spacious dining room with a separate section for the entertaining hibachi chefs to cook at your table. A six-seat sushi bar allows for close view of the craftsmanship displayed by the sushi chefs.
Customers can follow the LED-lit bar around the bend and find another half dozen seats at the main bar where sporting events play on a flat screen.
Diners have their choice of many lunch specials, including multiple Asian bento boxes featuring tempura, teriyaki or katsu proteins for $9.95. Sushi lunch portions start at $10.95 and they include soup or salad. Orders from the hibachi grill range from $9.95 for chicken to $15.95 for combination platters with beef and seafood.
At night, the hibachi entrees expand to include onion soup, salad, shrimp appetizers, vegetables, rice and noodles alongside your choice of meat. Dinners start at $16.95 (chicken) for a single portion and range between $25.95 (filet mignon) and $49.95 (land and sea for two) for a combination plate where lobster joins the menu.
Akira Hibachi & Sushi Bar, which pipes music throughout its blue track-lighting dining room, offers specific lunch and dinner hours Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 10 p.m. On Friday and Saturday the restaurant stays open an hour later and Sunday hours are 2:30 to 9:30 p.m. Call (813) 689-5544.
