We sat at the eating bar right by the grill area, and the view was almost as good as the food. We had a good mix of sashimi, grilled fish, grilled asparagus, salad and some shrimp. Overall, really good, fun time. Seating next to the grill may not be for everyone, and there are alternative seating arrangements available. The area around the grill is noisy, active, a bit like a Japanese diner. But the food is really good, the vibe is fun, and you even get little hot towels at the outset. I'm not much on sake, but I had a Japanese scotch (a light single malt) and we had some Sapporos, so all was well. Would definitely recommend and would go back.

The blue fin tuna tartare was unbelievable. The sashimi was perfection. The grilled bbq grilles shoulder was scrumptious.

Loved the ambience - very Japanese-inspired - with private dining rooms, very cozy, yet very chic. The service was excellent, with great recommendations on sake.

Final tip: Check out bathrooms.

I had a great lunch at A.K. In a neighborhood where the options are sometimes a little less than exciting, this was just great. The prix fixe lunch included sashimi, grilled steak, and other yummy authentic Japanese treats. And the sake menu (I like mine cold) was very, very impressive. My colleague who knows Japan better than I do, absolutely loved it. I will definitely go back.

Woooowww. I was invited to a dinner at this "hideaway" little Japanese restaurant on the East side of 45th Street. On approach it looks nothing and once down the stairs it turns into a small labyrynth of cozy, private dining rooms.....still looks nothing. Then comes the service....the attention to the customer is focussed on delivering a memorable, Japanese, gastronomic feast. We went for the set menu and it kept coming in abundance, every taste there to be savoured and enjoyed (the whole flying fish is specially recommended). The Sake adds to the enjoyment with all sorts of palates catered for. The hostess allowed us to sample various Sake styles before we made our choice. Very underground and trendy.

Great location, ambience, and food. Have always tried the lunch at the bar and always enjoy the authentic Japanese style of serving at the bar. Rolls are excellent and so are the lunch
