The food was good and the staff were friendly. A group of four of me and my friends were sat outside and the heaters were turned all the way up. It was so hot and our orders were late, and some were forgotten all together. Maybe the outside section is forgotten.

Best dining experience for a very long time. The food was out of this world and the waiting staff were so helpful.
The bar staff made our lunch time - they were so funny and kept us entertained and chatted whilst they worked. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a fantastic all round experience!

I love Akiba - the food, the service and the music. It's a great atmosphere. Our waiter, Lindon was lovely. He has served me on a couple of occasions and I love his enthusiasm, prompt service and general behaviour. He puts a smile on my face

We had an amazing bartender serving us, accomodating cocktails to our liking and even asking for our opinion for the cocktail of the month. He truly made our experience and would love to give him credit. The food and service was quick and easy and the staff made sure to accomodate to our dietary's just from overhearing a comment I made, without even me asking.

Unfortunately the meal was rushed all our food arrived in five minutes. While we had the table booked from 1730 at 1830 h we were informed they needed the table in 10 mins for others. We were given another table but within 10 mins were again informed that that table was now required. In total we spent 1 h 10 mins in the restaurant. Our Waitress was excellent but the management never came to the table

Service was fantastic throughout the whole night. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable on the food and drinks and my party and I felt very looked after.

Even when one of the dishes was late coming out, our server never made me feel uncomfortable for asking.

The food is great but the service is why Akiba continues to be one of my favourite places to dine.

The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. Possibly the only improvement on the whole experience was to have the music lowered just a tad. It was very difficult to talk at the table with the other diners. You pretty much had to yell at them.

Beautiful food though, would definitely recommend.

Best dinner we have had at Akiba yet. The buns were fresh, the beef was amazing and the eggplant was as good as always.

There is a reason this place is my favourite restaurant in Canberra.

A little disappointed with the amount of food. Ordered vegan feed me for two, and no seafood for two. After recommendations on the quantity and quality of food. Hubby went home hungry.

I booked at a time where I was given the option of bar seating or table seating and selected table seating, on arrival we were placed at bar seating, bar seating is ok but stools are quite uncomfortable.
Not the first time this has happened.

The Feed Me menu is a must-try - 9 small but delicious options from the menu, totalling a very satisfying meal. The pork bao is the favourite. Don't overthink where to go for dinner, just book a table here and enjoy.
