The last time we visited with a group of 6 people the service was indifferent and staff uninterested, food was still good quality but in tiny proportions with no suggestions about appropriate servings from the staff. Staff forgot to serve our "amuse bouche" whilst other... More

What a superb restaurant! Exceptional Indian food that is fine dinning with wonderful specialities of the house and the traditional favourites. As a regular guest this was my first time to enjoy the tasting menu. It is a treat but do not eat anything for hours before hand. On a warm night sit outside, on a winters night either inside...

Two of us rolled in right on 12 noon - and were given our choice of tables. The service was spot on, and the food - oh the food. Shared a couple of mains, with the Goat Curry being an absolute stand out. Naan was fresh and not overcooked, beer was cold and the location is spectacular. On a personal... More

Aki's is hands down one of the Best Indian Restaurants in Sydney. The Cowper Bay setting makes the experience even better.

This is not a cheap place to eat, but it's worth the money. As a special treat or reason and if you like Indian food. The service and the advice on selections was as good as it gets. The variety is impressive. My Scollops were perf ect, my dessert was great. Congratulation to the staff.

We absolutely loved our lunch experience here. The food was outstanding, and the best that we've ever had. We've eaten Indian food many times, but this set a whole new standard!

Expensive and high-end place but if you are looking to eat Best Indian food then this is the place to go in Sydney. The dishes on the menu are not the ones commonly found in India and I see they have done a lot of innovation and adaptation to suit local tastes. So please bear this in mind

This was such an amazing surprise when we wandered in on a Thurs evening. No idea why it wasn't packed as this was by a long way the best Indian we've had in Australia. The service was also so impressive. You will not be disappointed

Thank Cat G
