Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Our concierge at the Hyatt Regency on Burrard recommended Aki on West Pender when we asked for a good sushi spot. We loved it. Fresh and tasty and recommended!V

“Good to be back”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

After being a regular at their old location on Thurlow, I missed a goooood sushi and finally made it to their new location last week. It took about 15 minutes to realize what I was really missing! Everything was as good as always. By far still the best sushi guys in town. Good to be back and see you soon and often!

“A very nice Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have gone to the location on Thurlow for many years but only gone to the new location on Pender once recently. I am a little disappointed. I like the decoration and ambiance of the last location a lot more. The feeling of being in Japan is gone. Don't get me wrong. Aki is still an excellent choice for a Japanese restaurant. It is a Japanese restaurant you often find Japanese customers there and that says something!

“Original traditional japanese cuisine”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I've been going to Aki when it was in Japan town. I liked their second location on Thurlow much better, but the food makes up for it.Their lunch sets are a bargain, my favorite is the black cod set. Dinner offerings include
BBQ goeduck and conch and fresh sashimi such as aji and spot prawns.

“A Great Traditoional Japanese Restaurant in Vancouver”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

This is one of the very last few Japanese restaurants in Vancouver that serve authentic traditional Japanese dishes from the kitchen. Very professional and experienced Japanese chefs, fresh foods, friendly servers, comfortable environment, reasonable prices, great selections on the menu ... what more can I say? Make sure to make reservation, even on a week day.
