When it comes to Japanese food, I am kinda picky. I don't mind having all those fresh sashimis, high quality grilled meat, but sometimes I just have to have sushi rolls to indulge my palate. As you know, Japanese food in Pantai Indah Kapuk area is getting serious. Sushi Hiro, Sushi Sen, Tajima, they all have those good quality of Japanese food and I am quite pleased with them. One addition to Japanese food at PIK won't hurt though. Here comes Akatama.
Akatama has ita clean white decoration delivering the luxurious modern ambiance. The atmosphere somehow is too glamorous for PIK avenue, kinda intimidating, telling us that they're serious in this industry. It's quite spacious with bunch of sofas on the corner. The staffs are friendly as well. Good start.
Welcoming you with miso soup for each person on the table. So thoughful, aren't they?
A fresh start to my palate! Fresh lettuces, cuts of carrot, and fresh salmon sashimi with roasted sesame dressing, if I'm not mistaken. Love the combination of it all. Too bad the portion is way too small for a salad-sucker like me.
I have this grilled mushrooms, chicken wings, beefs, and grilled chicken. Everything is good and tender. I love the sweet seasoning that wraps all the skewers. The chicken and beef are also tender and really enjoyable. I even ask for additional portion of their mushroom.Tasty bowl with tenderly cooked beef, sprinkled with fried onion on top. Portion is quite generous. This one can be your choice when you want something comforting and play safe.

ABURI SALMON SUSHI
Eight big chunk of sushi rolls with layers of salmon, tempura and crunchies inside. Love the combination of it all. I also love how they maintain the authenticity by only giving small amount of mayo.
My kind of favorite sushi roll! Fresh and tasty unagi on top, crunchy tempura inside, delicious Japanese rice. Love how the combination of it all meet my palate. Again, they do not give overwhelming sauce on the sushi roll, so that the original flavor is still right on point.
Tasty crunchy ebi, veggies, sweet potatoes dipped in light tempura sauce. I do enjoy it, but I prefer to have more intense sauce of tempura.
Overall Akatama at PIK Avenue is quite enjoyable. Selection of menus are quite vary, delicious sushi, fresh sashimis, and tasty skewers. I love the ambiance so much I can spend hours here. The thing is, the portion is quite small but I do understand they want to keep it affordable. So best of luck for you!
