Fantastic food-we has the Akiba Feed Me set menu, absolutely spot on! Some great Saké, beer and Wine options which we enjoyed too. Really modern styling, it really had a buzz in the space. Awesome.
Far too noisy with hard tables and floors and music too loud. Great food , so tasty . Service a bit haphazard as seemed understaffed . Need to turn the music down not up when more people crowd in
The food was spectacular, the service was a little slow at the beginning but later improved and the staff seemed on top of everything - which was great. Initially we were seated at the stools which were quite uncomfortable but we asked to relocate to a booth that which we were able to do and that made a huge difference as we could enjoy our deluxe banquet without feeling squashed in. Will definitely return (and book a booth from the start). Thanks Akiba team for what was an enjoyable and delicious meal.
We were recommended this restaurant by a friend & we were very happy. Amazing food, great & exciting atmosphere & the staff were attentive & helpful. Would recommend highly
We had the Feed Me option - beautiful food and heaps of it, drinks took awhile to come and were incorrect the first round. Small glitch in what was a great night, I will definitely go back!
Air conditioning was on but did not reach end of restaurant. Food was over seasoned with salt - very heavy handed with salt - drank water all night after meal
Food and service were great. Background music was a bit loud to make conversation without shouting. On a hot day, a stronger aircon would be much appreciated.
Good food, but felt rushed and like we were being churned through a factory. Would not rush back - there are many other good places in Canberra I’d prefer.
Entertaining interstate guests. Consistently excellent food. Reasonably priced. Great buzz, very popular place to eat. Good selection of drinks. Love it.
Very good food as always. Maybe the music selection should be less 'clubby'?
Quick service, personable staff and great food! We booked a late dinner but they go us in quick and everything was really enjoyable. Will definitely be back.
We had four gluten free dishes from the coeliac menu. All of them were excellent and each different from the other. A particular nod to the salmon ceviche (which didn't actually need the side dish of GF soy sauce). The octopus was also delicious. Great to see them catering to the gluten intolerant. Highly recommended to all.
Food was okay. Service was great.
The music was way too loud for conversation, our waiter was almost non-existent, drinks took forever to arrive, no waiter to order next round of drinks, chairs were extremely uncomfortable - they were high stools, and we couldn’t be moved to a booth even though one was empty when we were seated. Food was nice, but not overly. All in all, the place is overpriced and I won’t be going back.
Friendly welcoming service, excellent dishes catering for both vegetarian and carnivores, a good choice of drinks including Japanese beer on tap, attentive staff, vibrant but not too noise. I will come back.
The food and ambience were great!
Consistently good food. Staff members welcomed us with smiles, were polite and eager to please. We had to wait a little while for the last few dishes ordered as part or our Just Feed Me deal to appear but, all in all, I highly recommend Akiba. It's my go to place when friends from interstate visit Canberra.
I have been to Akiba on a few occasions and every time I go the service, food, cocktails and atmosphere are excellent. If you are into asian-fusion cuisine then Akiba is a must for your trip to Canberra. I will definitely be back again!
My partner and I visited this restaurant for my birthday. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. We felt welcomed and the staff has explained us the foods and drinks, so we did not feel anxious.
Great food, reasonable meal prices. The Sake was too expensive to justify trying it. Great atmosphere, great service. The oyster pancakes were delicious and I recommend them.

Akiba was popular from inception, and it’s not hard to see why - the vibe is electric, the noise level is right up, the decor is bright and exciting, and the food is damn delicious. And it’s not only the Canberra locals who are loving this place, it has also been recently acknowledged by the Good Food Guide as one of Canby's best eats and we’re sure it will keep growing from strength to strength. The menu and serving style is relaxed, designed to mimic the food halls and dining rooms of East Asia. The food itself showcases the many styles of Asian barbecue, raw bar and modern day dim sum and the eclectic menu is supported by an equally exciting drinks menu which features exotic cocktails and tap and craft beers - the cocktail of the month is always a safe bet. Come and see why Akiba is trending - what are you waiting for?
Best dish: black angus sirloin, chipotle butter, zuni pickled onion.
