Welcome to Amakara

Amakara – A Japanese word meaning “sweet and spicy”. This is the root of our cuisine.

In March of 2008, after over a year and a half of planning, we opened our doors to the local residents of Dublin and nearby areas. Our aim is to provide a unique flair to your common sushi roll favorites and fresh fish selections.

At this new location, we are centrally located in the Downtown Dublin district- within walking distance to the Dublin/Pleasanton East BART station and local shops, banks and other small businesses.

We offer a full service sushi bar, full bar menu & take out. Some customer favorites are: Grilled Edamame, fried calamari, Klondike Express and the Spicy Crunchy Rainbow- available at all times! Feeling adventurous? Ask your server for the fish specials and indulge your taste buds in our freshest selections of the day!
