A great dinner experience - ask and you will receive. Read the menu, order the standards and you will be satiated for sure. But get into a conversation with Alex and be open to relating to his challenges and passion of driving terriffic Japanese food in Hobart and I feel you'll be more than surprised. There is great divergence here. Sashimi is spot on but freshness is aligned to flavour ... and tangy. Beef is also delightful. But finish with Zanzai - few order because well they're done at this stage but patience delivers a rare treat.
And did I mention the discussions around sake list - komatsu is mandatory
All in all a fun and interesting and surprising evening... keep it up Alex you are on strike...

We were looking for a light Sunday night dinner and Aki was perfect. We have eaten a lot of Japanese food including spending time in Japan and we found the food to be very good. The service was spot on as well. We also loved the authentic Japanese pop/opera (I'm not sure exactly) playlist they were playing. A steaming pot of green tea was also restorative after a long day of sightseeing. We walked up from Salamanca so the twilight walk home past the beautiful cottages and rose gardens topped of the night.

Alex the owner of Aki Modern Japanese personally curated a sake experience for us based on our individual preferences and drinking style. We really appreciated his attention to detail & quality. The food is fresh & delicious. It's Japanese with a contemporary twist. "Kan pai!"

Recently on a long weekend break to Hobart we discovered Aki Japanese Restaurant whilst walking around the streets of Battery Point on the Sunday afternoon.
We returned for dinner that night and had a very enjoyable meal.
The staff were very attentive and polite and the range of available sake's was impressive.
All in all, we totally enjoyed our experience of Aki Modern Japanese restaurant and will make a point of dining there again on our next visit to Hobart.
