The food was very good, but the price made it even better. Service was fine...nothing they did detracted from my experience. The atmosphere was not excellent though, but it is in a interesting part of town.

I'm not generally a fan of fusion cuisine but in Aki I have found an exception. Chef/ owner siggy has integrated caribbean flavors into the menu in a very "tasteful" way. The standard fare is also top notch. Some of my favorites are the toro tartar appetizer and the half avocado stuffed w/ real crabmeat and topped w/ tobiko. Feeling adventurous sit back and order the chef's special sushi - it's a party in your mouth.

Everything I've had here has been great. I especially recommend the shinoda bag, the tofu etranger, and the eel napoleon. Be sure to look at the specials that are listed on this strange tree like structure (with photographs) on every table.

Big fan of any food with a cultural twist. Unfortunately, it was just ok. Had the Jamaica Chicken - a bit on the watery side (banana tempura was pretty good), and the Chilean Sea Bass - it was dry and over cooked....not worth my $9. The rolls, including carribbean were again just ok. If I wasn't so hungry, I'd probably be a bit more disappointed. Dining area was smaller than my living room - a NYC apt.

The eel napoleon with fried tofu and mashed pumpkin may be the best thing I've ever eaten. 1/3 the cost of NYC's "best" sushi joints yet the sushi is just as good.

The chef has a unique way of incorporating worldly flavors into his food without offending any japanese traditions. The menu is stocked with creative but well thought out items. It's a really great dining experience and may be the cream of large crop of very good neighboorhood sushi joints.
