Akarui isn't flash to look at and its a tiny space but do yourself a favour and make this your regular for Japanese food in Randwick. Its truly a 'mom and pop' store with the husband and wife team of Gene and Amy running the show. The service and quality are great and its now a local institution. Its BYO... More

reasonably priced, yummy food, owner is so friendly! There isn't a lot of seating, probably better for takeaway

Service is excellent, decore quite traditional. Lots of choice on the menu. The food was okay, think food was defrosted in the microwave, the wakame had ice in it, the gyoza was store bought, and the raw fish didn't seem fresh, but the rice was good. Again excellent service, and decent price but not quality Japanese food.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Randwick. The food is always super fresh and the prices are very fair for the quality. Also, the owners are really nice people so it is a joy to come back again and again.

I've walked past this restaurant a number of times and it has an inviting feel to it. I reminds me of so many hole in the wall tokyo restaurants that seat 3 or 4 people. Bonus, this place has at least 20 seats! take your pick , the food is prepared right there in front of you, the chef a... More

It's hard to see how this gem of a restaurant keeps on improving but it does. Had the fresh seafood pancakes at the weekend and they were delicious. Add this to the freshest sushi in Sydney, the tastiest kimchi and the spiciest chicken or pork BBQ and you have Korean heaven. Lovely service with a smile in a cosy, intimate... More

I had sushi sashimi combo and my partner had teriyaki chicken. Both were great meals. The only reason I'm not giving it s 5 is that they ran out of wine glasses.
