Aki Sushi

April 12, 2008

We tried Aki Sushi last night, and our initial impression is this: great selection, real good quality! When they gave us the warm towels to wash our hands, they were real, terry-cloth towels! Not too many places do terry cloth these days. They were very warm and felt great on the hands.

When it came time to order we didn’t select an appetizer at all, we simply ordered the sashimi and sushi love boat as well as two special rolls figuring that would be enough to fill us. The Sahara Special had eel tempura, avocado inside, spicy salmon, tempura crunch outside. The Beauty Roll had spicy yellowtail, mango, tempura crunch inside, tuna and salmon outside. Both were very tasty and generously sized. I don’t like skimpy rolls. :)

The Love Boat consisted of 20 pieces of fresh sashimi, 10 pcs. of yummy sushi, tasty eel dragon roll and lobster salad roll. (photo at right is just a stock photo) The boat was attractively presented in addition to tasting great. I honestly can’t believe we ate all of that food, but it was simply delicious and we couldn’t help finish it all. We were quite full when we left, that’s for sure. I wanted to try a dessert, but I realized I just didn’t have the room for it.

In summary, as people who have tried dozens of (run-of-the-mill) sushi places around the area, we really enjoyed Aki Sushi. The decor doesn’t particularly “wow” you, but they have booths and tables alike. No hibachi tables! if you want cooked food, it’s made in the kitchen.

We recommend sushi lovers to definitely try them out, they are one of the better sushi restaurants in the Bayshore area.  4 out of 5 stars.

  1. Will definitely put this place on the “MUST GO” list with the 4 out of 5 star rating. Has anyone tried Sushi by Kazu in Howell? I read great review on it on many websites but I haven’t seen any on this one. I plan to take the boyfriend out for Sushi for his birthday and since we are both sushi lovers, I was considering going to Kazu for all its rave reviews. Any suggestions or comments?


  2. Love this place, too. I was Google’ing it to get the number for take out and your blog came up, great hit.


  3. Hey, you used to write magnificent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring… I miss your tremendous writings. Past few posts are just a little out of track! come on!
