AKI - new Asian Fusion restaurant in Norwich?
LOVE this place!! Clean, artistic restaurant, excellent waitstaff, food is delicious, fresh, and artistically displayed with beautiful flowers, etc. Got the chicken teryaki, mom got scallops, both were amazing, salad with ginger sauce awesome too. Will be going back next week , cant wait!! You have to try this restaurant!!
I work in Norwich and go here every friday and get take out, usually one of the bento box specials as the other person also stated they get, 100% correct that the food is excellent, service is great, Paul the owner is a very pleasant person and quantities and pricing are excellent, I wish them the best of luck and hope they are able to be there for many years to come..
Aki is planning their Grand Opening soon.....I also enjoy their Bento boxes for lunch.......I have a picture of a giant dragon Paul made out of carrots and gave to a co-worker of mine this week ....I will download it later and post it l.....it is amazing!!! Planning to go there for dinner with the family soon! A bunch of us went for lunch and the owner brought us his Asian fusion dessert plates as a complementary treat for doing our luncheon there..... nice people and I hope they succeed!
UPDATE: went there for lunch today with a large group. The food was very good, fair prices and the staff is wonderful.
Most of us ordered Bento boxes as they have them as their lunch special
....aLOT of tasty items,,,,,,miso soup, salad, 3 pieces california roll, 2 dumplings, and the main item you select for your Bento
In addition, they are so new, they brought us out a complementary shrimp appetizer to share and a plate of desserts at the end.
I am already planning to go back for a dinner sometime soon to try them out.
The room is decorated simply but very nicely, they are getting hibachi tables set up in another part of the room - but that won;t be ready for a couple of weeks more
Bottom line: new place, good food, pleasant surroundings, fair prices and very nice people!
It is Asian Fusion so there are touches of cooking that you won't find in your straight up Asian eatery.
My vote: those who can swing into Norwich should give them a try to see what they are really capable of!
