Had another awesome night thanks to the legend Soumi. He’s killing it on that trolley bar. Akiba is a must go if you’re in the city and looking for dinner plans.

the second time we have eaten here and again the food and staff were excellent. Staff were very accommodating and prepared to assist with dietary requests. The food is excellent and comes very quickly to the table. The staff are amazing especially Orlena and Alex. I tell everyone about this place and tell them they must go there.

As a solo lunchtime traveller, I was seated at the bar where Soumi attentively took my drink and food order. I started with a pork bun (after being told it was a signature menu item) and it was delicious. More helpful recommendations from Soumi, and I moved on to the sweet corn pancakes which also dazzled - the perfect mix of crispy pancake, tender corn, chilli and the sweetness of caramel. So good! Accompanied by a local Riesling, this was perfect lunchtime fare. Can’t wait to come back!

Hi Emma, thank you for the great feedback. At Akiba you're never a solo diner, our crew (like Soumi our Sake expert) will look after you! We put a lot of passion and pride in to each item on the menu so that you'll love every dish and of course a wine/drink selection to match!
We look forward to your next visit for another tasty bite!!!
