A vibrant Asian eatery, Aka Japanese Restaurant serves up fresh cuisine via tableside Teppanyaki grilling, sushi rolls, and more. The family-friendly establishment provides a lunch menu with plentiful bento-box options ($8.95–$12.95), each of which includes miso soup, rice, salad, four California rolls, two crab rangoons, and your choice of an entree such as Japanese-style steak, chicken, shrimp tempura, vegetable tempura, or sashimi. The hibachi dinner menu boasts entrees prepared in front of diners at the Teppanyaki grill, such as the chicken teriyaki served with vegetables, rice, and soup or salad ($12.95), and the sushi bar keep meals deliciously raw with various sushi and rolls, such as the fish lover's volcano roll—whose California roll foundation is topped with baked scallop, shrimp, and salmon ($8.95)—or the spicy-crab-filled black-dragon roll, a fire-breathing wrap of cucumber, boiled shrimp, eel, avocado, and special sauces ($13).
SushiBar isn’t easily defined. The pan-Asian eatery draws inspiration from traditional Asian culinary techniques and modern methods. This eclectic acumen extends to the space itself, which transforms into a pleasant brunch site on Sunday afternoons—just a few hours after it is a DJ-driven, dance-centric chess club. Chefs assemble more than 60 sushi rolls—incorporating everything from blackened tuna and jalapeño to spicy crab and bell pepper—but they also introduce Pacific Rim flavors into familiar Western dishes. Beyond the brunch selection's hash of guillotine-sliced Chinese sausage and shiitake mushrooms, the regular menu features pork-belly tacos with kimchi and sliders with poached salmon and puréed avocado.

Young Sun continued his family's tradition of owning a restaurant when he moved to the U.S. Spending most of his time in his mother’s restaurant, Sun learned a lot about what kind of restaurant worked. That’s why when opening Sushi Express, the environment was relaxing and geared towards making diners feel comfortable and relaxed. While the ambiance is a big draw with Sushi Express, it is only outdone by the food. They have a great selection of choices like soups, salads, bento boxes for the healthy eater and, of course, the fantastic sushi! They have a kids menu too, plenty of great beverages to choose from (including an impressive beer, wine and sake list) and some great dessert options to finish off your visit to Young Sun’s Sushi Express!
