I was craving ceviche and my husband found this rather hole-in-the-wall type place. The decor is more diner than a sushi place but the service was excellent and the food good; the ceviche was certainly good. The value was superb! Definitely a fantastic value and we'll be back!

The place is nice and the decoration is fascinating. The choice on the menu is quite limited and there are few typical Japanese dishes. The prices are not very low.

I was visiting my son and we love all you can eat places. He had found this place Aki in downtown area. We go there as it opened on Monday, due to I had to leave for home. The service was perfect! Usually when you arrive as soon as a place opens, it has a long wait time, waiting for... More

It's a nice place - well-run, nicely decorated, always competent staff, good quality food, decent prices. You can probably get slightly better Japanese food in Philly - for a lot more money. Their happy hour sale - beers an appetizers at half price before 7pm - is a pretty good deal, too. My wife and I end up here a... More

This restaurant is just next to Rodeway Inn. I sat at the Sushi bar and enjoyed watching the chefs making sushis until mine were brought to me. They were beautiful and delicious!

All you can eat sushi for $25 in Center City on a Saturday?! Excellent deal. Although I was disappointed that there's an add-on charge for specialty rolls, it's still a great deal. The sushi rolls were solid- fresh and tasted okay. While nothing was mind-blowing, I did stick with the non-special rolls like salmon avocado and spicy scallop. They also... More

Sushi was great! Wife and I both had all you could eat. Everything was fresh and the service was fast. Very convenient location in the theatre district.

Went there, had all you can eat sushi. While décor and service is pretty good, the sushi itself were just OK. Not to mention that most special rolls are not included ($2.50 extra each).

Very poor service! The waitress was very rude, I've never had such a bad experience in a restaurant before, I don't even know where to start. The food takes a long time to come out; she brings out the appetizer the same time as one of the entrees, so we had to wait another 15 minutes before the second entree... More

The Aki rolls were superb as was every piece of tender suchi we ordered. Some of the excellent rolled delicacies were spicy as advertised, others more plain loved by the young kids. The three adults took the $25 All You Can Eat Special where we discovered that the suchi chef was extremely generous with portions and in perfect proportion, too.... More
