The meat was a bit dry and dull but was ok with onions parmesans and ketchup (my companion preferred the onions to the chicken - Akiba, Canberra (ACT)
We went for the Feed Me Menu, I chose to switch the fried rice to crispy eggplant. It tasted great (if not having a big portion - Akiba, Canberra (ACT)

    Amazing food and service. Always a great atmosphere and sensible social distancing was in place. The only problem was our serve of Japanese fried chicken was too big and we left too full ;)

    Food great as always. A bit noisy at times. Service was excellent. COVID19 precautions OK but social distancing a little difficult at times. A good evening.

    Food at Akiba is always top notch, service was quick, polite and efficient. Unfortunately, we were given a table at the bar, when I had hoped for a more intimate table setting as my husband and I were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. Will order take away from Akiba but won’t be dining in again.

    Incredibly tasty food. I highly recommend the ‘feed me’ set menu. Great atmosphere and service. I was dining on my own during a business trip and was seated at the bar. They all made me feel very welcome.

    It was great to be back after the lockdown. The food was amazing, as always, and staff friendly and attentive, again as always. Any allergies or menu change requests were handled with no fuss. Empty plates from everyone, including the youngest who can be a fussy eater.

    Excellent food with great service! The booking system is extremely simple and the table was set and ready at the right time. There was no rush or pushiness from staff to leave the restaurant. The staff was wonderful and very kind and professional, the restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was great!

    the feed me menu was delicious in every detail. It’s just a bit too much for one person, hope this can be shared with another by paying just extra half with the same serving ????

    A favourite restaurant of my girlfriend and me. Hadn’t been able to visit due to COVID 19 but so glad it has reopened in its original form. Fabulous food and service - nothing has changed. We’ll be back again soon.

    Great to be back at one of my favourite restaurants in Canberra. Service, food and drinks were, as alway, excellent. Socially distanced with a great atmosphere

    We had the feed me! Chef’s selection plus some oysters and everything was delicious. My favourite was the pork belly bao, but it was really hard to choose the best dish. The atmosphere was buzzing in spite of the current health problems. Happy to go back next time we’re in Canberra!

    Had the 8 items menu- the first 3 were paced, then the larger portions all came at once and quite a long time later. Didn’t get to enjoy due to timing. Food nice. Had to wait long time for drinks.

    We are so glad we found this restaurant! Since Jamie Oliver closed we've been looking for our "goto" restaurant in Canberra and now we have found it. The food was just glorious and the service perfect. The portions are deceptive and we probably could have done with 1 dish less than we ordered, but now we know. The drink selection in vast and our waiter helped us match our drinks to what we has chosen to eat.

About the restaurant


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.
