Aki's new location on West Pender is bright and airy but the highlight continues to be the quality of food and service. I was distraught when the restaurant was forced from its Thurlow Street location and greatly relieved that it has resurfaced better than ever.

I've been going to Aki since it was first opened in Japantown at least 30 years ago. Then to Hastings street when I lost touch. I'm pleased to see it back on West Pender where I walk by everyday and stop in at least once a month.

The food is as good as I remember it - extremely fresh sushi, with some out of the ordinary choices on the menu. It's not the cheapest place around, but cheap sushi isn't usually worth it anyway.

One thing I really appreciated was the availability of low salt soya sauce (you have to ask though). I don't understand why this isn't the standard nowadays.

They could improve the take out menu (actually they need to make one) and offer some party trays. I ordered a selection for an office event and had to have everything replated. A delivery service would be nice too.

I hope this locations stays around for awhile.
