When I come to NY, I expect to be blown away by the food. Aki was just OK, and I feel I can get OK anywhere else. The positive things I can say are that everything was extremely fresh and inventive. However, they simply tried too hard. The tofu and yellowtail steak appetizers were bland...tasted like homemade food for diabetics. The one delicious plate I had, though, was the tuna/fuji/avocado cold app. That was simple and delicious. The rest was a lot of fuss for nothing special. The service could use a lot of improvement. The two waitresses were spaced out, and it took us three times to ask for hot tea. There were also two tables that sat down after my party of 2 that were served well before us. The atmosphere is squished but there's one really pretty well in the closet-sized space. I would not come back here again.

The spicy veggie roll is easily the best that I've ever had. Portions were on the smaller side, but it's packed with flavor instead of extra rice. The space is small, so either go at off times or make a reservation. I can't wait to go back!

Flounder Escabeche appetizer phenomenal. Not greasey at all; very clean. Sushi very fresh/generous portions, with temperature not too warm or cold; just right. Miso soup not too salty with nice touch of added mushrooms. Rice quality excellent. Bad: No mackerel available today. White tuna so so.

I am not a big fan of Japanese food (being a vegan, I tend to find way too much fish or tofu with fish and less veggie options) but Aki has amazing veg sushi and a divine selection of sake. I love this place! It's really tiny, so reservations are a really good idea.

Though I have never had and of the cooked food at Aki the sushi is amazin'. The Dino Roll and the Caribien Roll are musts, and they ordinary sushi is fresh and delicous. Aki is a great place to go if you find yourself downtown.

Been going here for over 5 years, love it! Really fresh sushi. Everything is homemade, including the soy sauce. The menu is so creative and fun. The early bird special is a total steal. Love the titanic, toro tartar, caribbean roll, green tea tiramisu.
