Yes, it’s tiny, with only five seats. And no, it’s not glamorous. It’s found right by the entrance to the Medborgarplatsen subway, with no sign in the window, and they often play the music too loudly. It is, to be honest, a scruffy little hole-in-the-wall. And as is so often the way with scruffy little hole-in-the-walls, it’s wonderful. Generally speaking, Stockholm is a sushi wilderness, which is unforgivable when you bear in mind that this city is awash with the freshest possible seafood, but Akki stands apart from the crowd.
Don’t plan a night around it because word of its excellence has spread, so you can never bank on getting one of those few seats. Either phone ahead to arrange some sushi to collect, or else if you’re passing by (perhaps en route to Och Himlen Därtill, see Bars) and you see a free space then grab it.
