 This is my wife's and my favorite sushi spot in the Triangle. We will only go to another sushi restaurant if we are out of town. They know us by name, give us great service, and, most importantly, the sushi is fresh and 1/2 off. LOVE AKASHI!

 It's not easy to find a really good Mom 'n Pop shop in the Triangle Area. JJFish and Chicken serves generous portions of homemade food for a fair price. The fish is awesome and the chicken nuggents/tenders are homemade (not parts)
