    It was just myself and my son at Akame Nigire and Sake, so that's why it was on the quieter side. We loved the food! Each course was so elegant and creative. We watched each item get made, were told about the ingredients and could ask any questions - was an experience as much as delicious food!!

    Very authentic sushi in combination with unique toppings. Mike created a new world of sushi without losing Japanese tradition. Every bite brought me to an amazing satisfaction. This place is absolutely a hidden gem.

    Amazing omakase experience! I enjoyed this more then the very well reputed Boston omakase, and at a fraction of the cost. So convenient to the suburbs, right in Lexington. We will definitely return!

    This was an amazing Omasake experience in Lexington. Chef Mike prepares all of the sushi fresh in front of you. He is committed to pushing himself to create unique and different flavors. Definitely the best omakese we've had in the Boston area. Could not recommend more if you want great food with a relaxed, cozy atmosphere.

    Wonderful omakase. Nice intimate setting. Chef Mike is great and personable. Fun to watch him make the dishes. Great pairing of sakes. Easy parking. A real gem.

    Quite simply one of the best meals of my entire life. A masterful omakase experience that rivals and even surpasses masters in New York and even Japan. Get your reservations in early, come hungry and open minded, and experience something wonderful.

    Our second time at Akame was just as sensational as the first! At many restaurants, even the best ones, they serve the same dishes over and over. Probably makes most sense economically to do so. But Akame is a much smaller scale intimate dining experience that allows chef/itamae Mike to change the sushi offerings according to what's in season which gives him new opportunities to apply his creative genius. We are so lucky to have a special place like Akame. Looking forward to going again with the changing of the seasons.

    Second time here and will be back. Went for anniversary, came back for the food. From my experience growing up in a seafood retail/wholesale family, the quality is top. Can't wait to go back. Had Fall and Winter seasonal items and looking forward to the next season.
