Akari is a very impressive little cosy japanese in Islington, on Essex Road. Food is very good, I had sushi, gyoza, seared beef, yellowtail, edamame, sesame salad, all excellent. Also atmospgere is very nice, the whole place looks a bit like a pub, and has a super nice dark lighting. If you are ever in Islington and want japanese, this is the place. And the prices are also very good for the food you get.
