tiny place a little further from the main strip

The sushi was quite good but not top in terms of presentation. Still we enjoyed it. It's a little further from the main strip but not far. Very tiny place with only a few tables but we didn't have a problem getting a spot.

My wife had a rice bowl dish and I had the sushi deluxe. We enjoyed it thoroughly. The only downside is that the tables are very close together and the prices are higher than average. That is expected for the area and time of year however.

Lovely dinner with tasty food and a delightful waitress, Molly. The sushi was great and the restaurant was just a short walk from the Hampton Inn at Lake Placid.

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

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. I know it smelled... 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

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
