Akanoya is a place to impress. The pricey restaurant offers well-executed robatayaki using high quality ingredients. The restaurant has no menu, so one picks from whatever is on offer - but buyers be aware given that there is no pricing, the cost of the meal can easily escalate.
During my last visit, we started with the Tebasaki ($8 each) which was grilled to perfection with the chicken meat melting in my mouth. One is certainly not enough.
Another grilled item to try is the Omi Gyu($40 each), four cubes of wagyu beef done lightly with some salt.
Next I tried the Hotate ($25 each) - a large scallop in wine sauce. Tasty but pricey.
Also from the seafood offerings that day was the Yaki Ika ($24), grilled squid which was tender with no "fishy" after taste. Also another must try here.
Finally, they have some giant tiger prawns ($16 each). A little on the tough side but I had to try it as I have not seen tiger prawns at this size.
For the fish of the day, it was the Nodokuro ($84), or grilled rosy seabass. Crispy skin and firm meat. Good stuff.
Washed down the meal with the Asari Misoshiru ($10), clam soup that had a nice after taste.
Overall, a great experience, ideal for impressing the date or a business client.
