Aki Deals

Aki Sushi Restaurant & Bar is generating a buzz that we haven’t seen for a sushi spot since Vic Sushi appeared on everyone’s radar. And with quality sushi and good deals, is it any wonder?

Craig LaBan mentioned the soup or salad and two rolls special for $8.50 and the$24.95 all-you-can-eat option.

Now comes word that happy hour features $18 bottles of wine and Center City Sips style pricing of $3 beers, $4 wines, $5 cocktails and half-priced appetizers.

    Tried Aki for lunch. Lovely space, good service. Not totally sold, though — I got a 2-roll combo with tuna avocado and sweet potato. The miso was fine, nothing special. The rolls were well made (i.e. not falling apart), but I was unimpressed by the fish. The tuna was almost greyish and somewhat mushy. It didn’t taste bad, but it didn’t taste great, either. I’ve gotten significantly better fish out of the case in Whole Foods. That said, the sweet potato roll quite nearly made up for the mediocre fish. Tempura sweet potatoes plus rice plus a little soy…its a sweet-crunch-salty addiction in the making.

    Wine list blows. Does a good wine list in a place like this matter to anyone else? I would just have a beer and be fine but it would be a nice surprise if someone actually cared to put a morsel of thought into choosing some interesting wines that you can’t buy in a supermarket (or a state store).

    Worse sushi I ever had. Will never go back. Raw is more expensive but soooo much better. Fish was dry and tastless at Aki. Wine list so limited, I thought it was a sake bar and lounge. Why does the music keep repeating? The sakes on the list were cheap selections that they hike up the prices outrageously. The staff doesn’t seem to know anything about the wine and sake. I asked which sake would go well with the sushi and everyone was ignorant and kept deferring my question to someone else. The guy at the bar couldn’t even answer a simple question about alcohol and he’s the bartender??
