Staying in the attached hotel and couldn't be bothered finding somewhere else. Fresh and modern decor with music playing in background. Large food choice on menu and relatively tasty dishes. Staff hovering over me every 3 mins which is a personal hate of mine. Would I come back? Probably not...

Couple of years ago I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone. However, after the new menu was introduced few months ago the quality has increased a lot. Really nice food and excellent sushi. Very unique flavours in the food. The only negative is that a little bit expensive. It costs an average of 11.50€ for a california roll (8 pieces)

As the reviewer on 24 November I was disappointed that the professional photos in the attractive menu and the actual dishes didn't match; okay the sushi looked like sushi but it was dull and a little dry. For my main course I had a squid dish which looked super in the picture but what arrived was a long plate loaded... More

Recently, I have been introduced to the quick lunch offer from this restaurant and I can say it was delicious! For the price of 9,90 EUR we got to choose two dishes, or a starter and one dish, and the portions were huge and tasty! I really loved rolls with duck meat. I have to say though, there is not...

The only thing that it's not fried or dipped in mayonnaise sauce is the sashimi at Akakiko. I order a ramen soup for a light lunch. The first attempt was a bowl with deep fried duck, extra boiled noodles, vegetables and no liquid, so no soup. I sent it back and they just added broth or something. If the menu... More

A very good reason to visit Akakiko is the delicious sushi they serve. It is always freshly prepared and nicely presented. The quality of their other Asian dishes is not so consistent however, especially when you use the delivery service. Staff are attentive and the decor of the place is quite modern.

I loved the new dishes on the revised menu. Let's hope the taste will not change with time. I loved the new additions to the oriental cuisine as well as the new sushi tastes.

Very good food, but noisy and also to warm (it was a cold day and they had to much heat on) Service ok, but a bit slow. A bit pricy for Cyprus, but worth a visit.
