    Excellent, best Indian in Sydney. Best lamb cutlets and okra, beautiful location, easy parking can not fault it. A place to be tried! Thank you Aki’s!

    We arrived just after 8pm and the restaurant was not very busy. They sat us at a table in the corner facing the wall and the carpet was dirty with rice & food from a previous sitting. My wife asked to move to one of the 3 vacant tables behind us near the window and we we're refused due to "the tables being booked". We finished dinner at 9.30pm and I asked to speak to the manager and asked why we we're not allowed to move to one of the tables where the floor was clean and he said they had a booking at one of the tables but they sat outside. The restaurant closes at 10pm and all 3 we're still vacant at 9.30pm. No apology or explanation for not moving us, they obviously didn't mind that we we're not happy sitting in a dirty area. Will not be going back!

    Overall excellent, however dishes that we were told were mild were quite hot. This is typical of Indian restaurants where the waitstaff or chefs are used to spicy dishes. Dishes should be available without chilli for those who find it difficult to tolerate.

    Excellent food and service. Great place for fine dining Indian food. They had great sized portions. I loved the popadoms with the three different dips and we tried the goat curry which was delicious. Will be back. Thanks guys.

    Uncommon dishes served in a pleasant room or on the patio. outstanding dishes were the crispy beet patties and the smoked goat. Servers were efficient and helpful.

    We've been talking about going to Aki's for a long time. We wonder why we waited so long. Service was attentive and informative. The waiter who took a picture of us is a professional photographer incognito. Altogether a wonderful experience

About the restaurant

Indian by the sea.

While the Woolloomooloo wharf doesn’t seem like the likely spot for a Indian diner, this five-star Indian restaurant has made the suburb’s picturesque finger wharves its home. Aki’s is the frontier of Indian food, and it’s about out as far as you can get from your local Indian takeaway. Sit in the sublime dining space which features crisp linens, pressed metals, soft ottomans and a distinguished bar. They’ve got a superb view of the water and city skyline (however, be aware that the prices match the view). Try their signature blue swimmer crab for a knockout entree. And for main, try the slow cooked goat with garam masala and tomatoes for a dish that will just melt in your mouth. The menu hints at Indian and Sri Lankan flavours, and if you’re not an Indian lover, this place will have soon have you converted.

Best Dish: five-spice lamb masala
