Patrons enjoy the "saxophone live music" and the "vibrant atmosphere".

Aki is short for Akitsu, meaning “dragonfly” in Japanese. This elegant creature is the theme for this large, spacious restaurant and lounge bar—even stamped into wonderfully fluffy bao buns. The ambience and modern design bring to mind establishments in happening London or cosmopolitan Manhattan. With chill beats energising you and dedicated lighting for each dining table, prepare to be awed by superbly artistic creations that are almost too pretty to bite into. These edible works of art are a feast for all the senses, adorned with fresh delicate colourful flowers, petals, leaves and dehydrated fruits.

Aki serves upscale Japanese and South American quality cuisine on stunning tableware. Taste the delectable O-Toro Tartare. Experience a volcano of prawn tempura sushi erupting a spicy mayo dressing. Nibble divine mini tacos stuffed with beef or chicken, and relish Peruvian chicken skewers with mayo dip. Savour melt-in-your-mouth Iberico pork, or the Miso Black Cod. Burst the spectacular smoke bubble on your Kawai-Bubble cocktail or indulge in the creamy Geisha from the striking new cocktail story menu. Save room for the decadent Hot Matcha Brownie to finish off your delicious meal.
