This restaurant really has a great atmosphere and set up. Nothing beats the décor for Japanese food then this place. I'm impress with the whole place. It is definitely a place to escape from regular restaurant. It is welcoming and totally different. Enjoy the scene.

In terms of food, I honestly cannot say I'm totally impress by it. There are no specialized "house special". Food taste wise isn't abnormal. The meal still taste good and added with the environment, it makes you feel like your in a different world.

Price is a bit high, but being there is well worth it. Service was not too bad. Readily available but lack professionalism or enthusiasm by staff. It is like " gimme your order
already" kind of attitude.

Still, I recommend everyone to check it out at least once.

Cheers

Great Authentic Restaurant

The review below (Don't Go) is not accurate! Aki's food is quite good! And, I'm a big fan. There is a reason it's the oldest Japanese restaurant in town. This restaurant doesn't pretend to be a Tojo's. Rather, it's geared towards those who seek great quality and authentic Japanese fair across a broad range of foods, ie. sushi, robata, tempura, etc. at a fairly reasonable price (although not cheap) in a simple setting. They have a daily menu that is comparable to what you would find at a siimilar restaurant in Tokyo--ask all the Japanese salarymen that eat there!

Yes, other places may have more of a sushi offering, but no restaurant can beat Aki's in terms of overall quality and breadth of offering at those prices--all other restaurants in this segmemt (ie. Koji, etc.) have closed shop. And Aki's chef's are Japanese!

In short, if you're seeking trendy, cool, Japanese don't go there. If you want a solid traditional, down-to-earth, Japanese restaurant, it's worth checking out.
