The entrance to this restaurant is nice, but once you see the dining area, it is a complete difference.
It is simply a very big room, with no walls separating one section of the room from another; no atmosphere at all. Loud clinking sounds can be heard from all directions, and the customers all talk somewhat loudly because the room is quite lively.
The waiters are worked like slaves; they are constantly running from one table to another, pouring tea, bringing dishes, etc.
The food is nice, and the menu is quite large.
Don't expect a romantic evening.

I went to Akari about nine months ago, and everything was outstanding. However, I went there two weeks ago, and disappointingly, the food has gone downhill. I ordered the deluxe sushi entree, it wasn't bad, but also wasn't great.
Service is still fast like before, and the decorations are the same.
On a side-note, the sign inside the front of the restaurant had Korean text on it, and they had spicy tofu on the menu - this might be a sign that it is not in fact, truly authentic, for all the purists out there (I am not one).
