“Best indian restaurant in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I've eaten Indian in number of restaurants around Australia but this has been the best indian restaurant in Australia. Best not just the food but also the service, drinks and atmosphere.

Was taken to this restaurant as a surprise for my birthday and it was very nice. Food is great with a good mix if traditional and modern.

Service by all the wait staff is exceptional. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and also would come back again when in Sydney again.

P.S. Best Seekh kebabs in the country ;)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We sat outside dining on a beautiful Sydney night when the Navy Fleet were in. It had a fabulous atmosphere and the service and food was impeccable.

“Aki's put it on the list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I am a regular at Aki's; if you like Indian food it's unbelievable - it's a gourmet restaurant providing a modern twist on Indian flavours. The menu is different - no tikka chicken masala, or lamb vindaloo, it's barramundi in banana leaves, railway goat curry, spiced duck

They have an excellent wine list and professional service, beautiful location and are dog friendly

I go over and over again, I feel spoiled for having such a wonderful Indian restaurant at my doorstep

“best indian i have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

my partner and i were absolutely blown away by the depth of the flavours and all around deliciousness of the food. Even the cocktails were amazing - definitely try the old raj! and the wine recommendations were spot-on for the food. couldn't fault this place if i tried. only suggestion - more desert options!

“One hat, not enough.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

From the location on Woolloomooloo's wharf, it is simple to see why restaurant Aki's restaurant is graded so highly. From the first steps inside your are immersed in a different side of Indian/Australian cuisine. The appetisers are gingerly portioned though they are worth the every cent, the Paneer is especially tasty. For mains the goat curry was a stand out, well portioned and incredibly delicious. Although it has been touted as expensive, Mr Mahadevan should be incredibly proud of the restaurant he was built up over the past few years. It's Indian cuisine like no other in Sydney and deserves the praise it's received.
