“Indian Cuisine Like No Other”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Our anniversary dinner at Aki's was a spectacular culinary journey. We ordered the Chandi Thaali at $75 per person, great price for this kind of degustation menu. The staff was helpful and the atmosphere was cozy with romantic lightning. All food tastes as good as it looks and comes at generous portions. Definitely coming back to tastes the other menus.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We booked a table at Aki's for a special occasion and it didn't disappoint. Great food and service. Good outdoor heating available if eating outside on a chilly night. Happy to recommend and happy to return.

“overpriced, cramped sitting, slow service . but great curries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

overpriced - 32$ a curry, cramped outdoor sitting- there is hardly any place to sit comfortably without banging into the person sitting at the table at the back( from other restaurant), service -- slow, by the time naans reached our table they were cold, tight and rubbery, but great curries- authentic taste and goat curry was best, will go again on a weekday whn it is not very busy just for the curry maybe

“Very good to a point”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

We actually went for dinner on the 31st of May, 5 friends celebrating my wife's birthday. Not the restaurant's fault but there was a stabbing just outside the front door so we had to walk past Police tape to get in. Prices for food were reasonable given the location and we opted for a banquet, no complaints about the food. The entree of spinach leaves fried in batter were delicious, curries were tasty including a prawn dish which contained prawns that were tender and juicy. The quantity of food and the service were both very good although the courses were rushed a little. The wine was expensive although we expected this to be the case. When I pay for wine I would like the waiter to leave the bottle on the table and not take it away after pouring each glass to a common service area. For some reason the glasses for sparkling wine were tiny and had to be refilled many times whilst the red wine glasses were the normal size. We had finished dinner and ordered another bottle of wine, we were the last customers. The wine was served and we were rounding off the night when the staff started vacuuming around us. Ok I know they have to clean and they want to get out of there ( I work in the hospitality industry) but either close the bar or wait until we leave until you vacuum. To be fair when we asked the waiter he stopped and apologised. We would go back to Aki's for a special occasion, hopefully next time the blood is cleaned up on the footpath by the time we leave.

“Great location, average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

This restaurant is based at the start of finger wharf in Woolloomooloo. There is a very nice atmosphere and the staff are friendly. The food was disappointing with the curries quite watery. Are many other places to try before we would consider going back.
