灯 Akari

  • Sushi

Dear valued customers,

We are pleased to announce, we will be reopening our doors for limited services of deliveries and takeaways from the 14th of July.

However, it is essential to explain to all customers why we’ve scheduled this particular date, especially to those who’ve taken the time to contact us about our reopening via phone/social media/passing by.

We are currently rebuilding our business from the fundamentals, for safer and quality services post-COVID-19, as well as to avoid all potential risks in the case of another fluctuation in the spread of the virus. One of our processes includes advancements to the interior of the restaurant. These developments will be implemented from the 8th to the 12th of July.

Our name “Akari (灯)” translates to light in Japanese. And we have been greatly saddened to have been unable to shine our light on Essex Road, Islington, under these difficult circumstances. But we are working very hard and looking forward to the day of welcoming you back to our house.

In terms of further updates on Akari’s new business and in-house restaurant services, we promise to keep in touch with more information.

Please stay well, stay safe.

Director of Akari
Yutaro Ono
