My husband and I go to Aikou at least once a week for sit down dining and take out. The food is excellent and always well presented. The monster roll, dynamite and sweetheart rolls are especailly good and the avocado salad is amazing. Pad Thai is delicious and a huge portion - enough for lunch the next day. Some have noted that the staff is unfriendly, but I disagree. All the staff are Asian, and they tend to be abit more formal. Because we dine there often, they are so friendly with us, and even gave us a lovely bottle of sake at Christmas. Our experience is you get as good as you give in a restaurant environment. If you are polite and not demanding, your service will generally be good. The atmosphere is very nice, although the chairs are a little stiff. The only criticism I would have, is they tend to rush you between courses. This is not a leisurely dining out. The fact that it is BYOB makes it a nice meal out at a reasonable price. They offer large wine glasses and will chill white wine at your table. Definitely worth a try if you like fusion Asian food
