Surprisingly great sushi in the Adirondacks!

My partner and I ate at Aki last night with our friends and their small boy. We really enjoyed our meal! Three of us had sushi, which tasted fresh, with really nice spicy rolls and other variety. The fourth diner had chicken teriyaki which she shared with her son and both seemed to really like it... read more

Aki Sushi has fresh and delicious sushi. I love coming here while in Lake Placid. Cute setting. Good service. Fast take out. The specially rolls are my favorite. Try the Tuna Tataki Roll and the hot entree's are very nice

I had came here with friends for my birthday while on vacation. I was disappointed with the food. There was small portions and they were expensive. The restraunt was so small 10 is a crowd. And on top of all that the food wasn't good. I can get sushi for less money, better quality, and bigger portions at a restraunt... More

I had experienced this restaurant last year as a solo traveler, and enjoyed it so much that I insisted on bringing my companions this year. What a mistake. I realize it is Winter right now, but surely the indoor temperature of a room should be higher than the outdoor temperature. I ate with my down parka on. The sushi dishes... More

As an homegrown, urban educated & plain sushi fanatic -I have had it all from your cheapo-three role deal in downtown Philly to the high-end Morimoto's Omakase. Aki, out of them all has always been a favorite go to. Moving back to the area was bearable knowing I could have access to some freshly sourced, simply done, classic Japanese food... More

I totally recommend the spicy scallop roll. And anything from their extensive list of specialty rolls. Creative and delicious. Why only 3 stars then? The rice was dry. That's sushi 101. It should have been fresh. We did come during the off season, so the chef should just make smaller batches of rice so that they are fresh! Also, my... More

Its a very small place and when we came it was only the four of us and three people at the counter. Not only was the waitress a little on the confused side, but when she brought out what were clearly the wrong items, she blamed us for ordering them?? I asked to see her note pad and reviewed it...

It's the worse sushi place I've ever been. I've never seen sushi that overpriced. All the portions were really small. The tuna seemed to be canned tuna. The almost forced us to tip more than 15%. Stay away from that place !

The atmosphere is quaint and fun. Though the dining room is small, rarely do I ever have to wait. Truly enjoy eating here.

We were so pleased with our choice for our group of 8 (we called ahead, it is a small place, they'll take reservations for groups over 6). The sushi and all other choices were really first rate. The restaurant is at 2724 Main St, the eastern side of the downtown area, not 324 as some websites list it.
