Aki features a menu of Japanese cuisine for lunch and dinner.
This restaurant's food is quite authentic, reasonably priced and tasty.
The atmosphere is also an authentic Japanese Izakaya-style: it reminded me of being in Japan and I liked it.
However, I would not visit here again, because of the poor quality of the service; not friendly, forgetting orders, throwing handtowels. As a result, when I was paying the bill, I did not tip the waitress. However, the staff pressured me to tip in what I felt was a very rude way (they said that it is not mannerly for a customer to refuse to tip after a meal). My opinion was that the service did not deserve a generous tip: had the service been of a good quality, I would happily have tipped the serving staff appropriately.
Until the service is improved (and until the serving staff change their
attitude to customers who choose not to reward poor service), I do not recommend this restaurant.
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.
