Staff is very welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is appealing to the eye and clean. Ordered a 12 pc tasting to share with a friend and it was delicious. We had lunch and were sat right away.

Tiny restaurant with 5 tables and 3 bar seats. Sushi good but nothing to write home about. Heard from the hotel concierge this Akiko is « not the good one » - seems the other is much better, but ran out of time to try it.

Great sushi, friendly service, a bit chaotic but absolutely delicious food. San Francisco roll and Toro were particular highlights. Would recommend booking a table in advance.
