MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

With few seats, limited hours and a two-person staff, snagging a table at this no-frills sushiya can be a real challenge. But those willing to make the effort will be rewarded, because Akaoni offers some of the region’s most pristine sushi—at surprisingly down-to-earth prices. A 12-piece chef's choice platter is offered for those who'd like to put their fate in the kitchen's hands, but savvy diners know to go straight for the options on the daily specials board-like buttery local spot prawns served to order from a tank right behind the omnipresent counter. Simply plated and nicely cut, the nigiri far outshines most of the cooked dishes. But if you're looking to supplement your sushi, the light and crispy vegetable tempura is a worthy option.
