UPDATE – Aoki is now permanently closed.
Aoki is a lovely Japanese restaurant just north of Times Square in New York. We just popped in for a light evening meal and were surprised by the variety available on the menu.
We chose a Spider roll – Soft shell crab, mayo and caviar, and a Pink Panthers Roll – crunchy spicy tuna, tempura eel, avocado, wasabi, caviar. Both were delicious and beautifully presented – they held together well.
We also chose gyoza – pan fried pork dumplings – again succulent and delicious.
Our fourth dish was tuna tataki – seared tuna with ponzu sauce and salad.
All of the dishes tasted really good, the ingredients were good quality and the service was excellent.
They also have an extensive drinks list which contains cocktails including the delicious Lychee Mojito.
Will I return to Aoki ? Definitely, next time I am in New York I will be taking my friends there for a wonderful Japanese treat.
