We started going to Aki last year. The owner/chef and his wife are wonderful people and take great pride providing their customers with super service and wonderful sushi. We try and go every other week. Aki is very small but also very quaint. Some of the choices on the menu are very unusual and perfectly prepared. Aki is a wonderful place to dine and relax.

Ordered the sushi for two and were so hungry after paying $30 each including tip that we had to go to the nearby hot dog place to satisfy our hunger (and we don't ever do this). However, the sushi plate we did have was excellent quality, superbly fresh, and quite tasty, even if the portions were small. The place is cute and its a great little spot for a nice quiet dinner with your significant other.

The secret's out! What can I say about this place? Nothing still disappoints me. The food's always fresh and tasty. Excellent service. Small but cozy atmosphere. Thank you for 10 years of great dining experience. I look forward to visit again.

I loved this place! Cute and cosy with great food. Definitely try the tofu pizza - it's like a japanese version of french onion soup. Also, the vegetarian sushi is amazing! So was the lotus root with peanut sauce... Yeah, basically everything. And they have this book on the mantle that's as cute as the place called "If the World Were a Village of 100 People," that the waitress said was her favorite... I love this place...

There are many Japanese delivery options in my neighborhood, and I've tried countless, countless restaurants for great sushi when I'm just too lazy to walk to the Chelsea Market, which in my option has the freshest, tastiest market sushi around (you can't find much fresher fish in the city). I stumbled on the Aki menu one day, and although the prices are a bit daunting, I decided to give it a try...the food came quickly, was very nicely packed, and was really fresh and delicious! Since then, I've ordered from these guys countless times, it has always been fantastic, and for real sushi fans, I highly recommend this joint. And what do I mean by fantastic? For starters, you get a nice amount of sushi for your moneyfeeling full after spending $20 on food is important, and they deliver here. Second, and perhaps most importantly, the fish is extremely fresh, alwaysas good as, if not better than the Chelsea Market, which has a very high seafood turn-over rate. Thirdly, the chef offers not only a great variety of sushi with an array of fresh fish, but unique preparations including banana and even some with a little spiceI've learned I like new types of sushi from this place. Lastly, these guys know how to properly prepare sushi, with a touch of wasabi between the rice and the seafood, and homemade pickled ginger to refresh the palate in between bitesthe real ginger that is a burst of flavor in your mouth, intense and sweet, not artificial-flavored and jammy. In the end, if you live in the delivery area of Aki, and you don't mind the typical pricey sushi prices, do yourself a favor, shell out the cash, and I'll bet you'll be amazed at the quality and range of tastes and textures. I've never been to the restaurant for a sit down dinner, but after getting countless delivery, I know that when I do, I can expect a great meal!

First off, Aki is tiny tiny tiny, drawing a friendly west village crowd. It's far from a "scene" but still rather charming. Any group bigger then four may feel cramped. As for the food, everything is great. Sushi is fresh, tasty, and fairly portioned. The appetizers are my favorite, many blow Nobu out of the water. Go for the sea bass w. black bean sauce, tuna w figi apple, seafood salad, and the green tea tiramisu. Service is just fine, never have had a problem out of the 15 times i've been there.
