At Akemi, we believe special occasions merit an exceptional celebration. That’s why we’ve crafted a place where memories are made and excellence is served. Our menu focuses on what makes a meal truly great: the right ingredients and a chef’s guiding vision. On our simple but exciting menu, traditional concepts meet fusion ideas using the best fish, the freshest local produce, and natural proteins, all for a uniquely flavorful experience. 


Established in 2011, restauranteur Carol Tan brings years of sushi experience to Castro Valley. A partner in Montclair’s Kakui, Carol was responsible for the sleek makeover of the North Berkeley space that reopened as Akemi in 2015. She even brought in a Japanese-trained sushi chef to create a sushi menu focused on quality over quantity of rolls, and integrity of ingredients.


Using all-natural, organic ingredients whenever possible, Akemi’s sushi bar in the Castro Valley Marketplace will feature premium sashimi, nigiri, traditional Japanese appetizers, and a sake program.
