“Fantastic Find”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

Just across the road from The Point Resort this very small sushi/japanese restaurant is absolutely fantastic. Value for money for real sushi, no pre-packed stuff here. We ate 3 times in our 2 week stay and each time had something different. I am the non sushi/fish eater and i still found plenty on the menu to keep me more than satisfied. Certainly worth a visit, and also their grocers next door is value too.

“Great find, authentic Japanese food from a chef who really cares”
Reviewed 27 February 2011

Not your typical Orlando restaurant, but a much understated outfit on a forgotten mall. Worth seeking out, especially as a reminder of real food in an area oversubscribed with food outlets which are in the main woefully inadeaquate in the food area. A family business with Mr Aki producing visually appealing and exquisitely flavoursome food using quite obviously quality produce (as much of the food we chose was raw).

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

This is a no thrills hole in the wall restaurant with very good food. The rolls, tempura, and sashimi is very good. We were extremely surprised. Super fast service and we had a great waitress. I love Japanese food and frequent many Japanese restaurants and would rate this place as very good. Their prices is very reasonable and does not reflect the quality of the food. This restaurant is close to the Omni Hotel where we stayed. Took about 10 to 15 minutes to get there.

“A local secret”
Reviewed 13 March 2010

I am surprised that there is no review about Aki. Felt lucky to have find this local gem within the vicinity of International drive. Went for a try after reading some positive reviews from Yelp. A mom and pop type restaurant. Customer are probably mostly local. Not trying to be fancy but just fresh sushi at a great price. Can't believe $6 Toro sushi. Fatty sweet and yummy. Their ramen/udon also very well done. It is within a strip mall that looks quite dead, keeping this restaurant incognito. Plenty of parking though.
