I normally think of bad Indian food as paying for lots of sauce, uninteresting flavours and poor value. Aki's Indian happily was in a complete class of it's own.
Interesting dishes, superb flavours, modern presentation and knowledgable wait staff. Food was amazing. Unfortunately did not have room for dessert so will go back again soon.
This is a must for a great eating experience.

came across some reviews that reckon that this was the best indian restaurant in sydney, so, craving some curry, i went to check it out.
had the chef's version of 'salt pepper squid' for appetizer, while i didnt really take to the dish, the seasoning was nicely toasted on the outside while the squid was oh so tender and very fresh.
the 'spicy' chicken curry special was recommended as a main, and, after debating with myself on whether it would be too hot or not, i selected that. it was delicious and not hot at all (to me). i scraped the bowl and the rice bowl clean, it was that good.
beautiful venue, as well.

We ate here one Friday night - location is fabulous - right on the Wharf in Woolloomooloo - with a wonderful view of the Sydney skyline at night. Food is sublime and high-end Indian cuisine. We had poppadum’s with a selection of chutney's; a deliciously fresh tasting amuse bouche of pakora in yoghurt; starters of the most flavoursome tandoori lamb I have tasted since fine dining in Delhi, fresh perfectly cooked squid in Tapioca flour, and deliciously delicately flavoured crab served with a mile coconut sauce; for mains we enjoyed perfect butter chicken richly spiced yet mildly hot, a deep, rich, and broody goat curry, and a delicate fresh seafood platter, perfectly accompanied by rice, soft & flaky naan, plus the best Black Dhaal I have tasted since 2003. All in all a fabulous meal perfectly accompanied by aperitif’s of Old Raj (basil & lemongrass-infused Bombay Sapphire, pineapple juice and fresh passion fruit topped with tonic water) and an unusually good Australian Pinot Noir from Mornington VIC. Desserts were a sticky sweet kulfi and tasting platter, broken only by the palate cleansing spiced ice cooled cranberry shot. Service was very friendly, efficient, and professional. The place isn’t super smart (could do with a refurb), prices are a little higher than we’d like, but for food this good 5 * is well deserved – we’ll be back for sure…

Food here is awesome! Service great and fantastic location! We will be back!! We recently moved to Sydney and have tried many Indian restaurants and this is the best to date. A little more expensive but well worthwhile!

Indian restaurants are very hot and miss in Australia however this was very good indeed. The food was very good the butter chicken was tasty and not too sweet either. My husband had the goat which was very good. If you want to have a decent Indian meal go here.
