Amazing food with such quality ingredients, one of the few places I have been for dinner recently that I’d go back to next week! Service was outstanding with everyone so welcoming and willing to help.

Great new cafe! The coffee is top notch and the staff are excellent. A small but tasty selection of food options and a great heart for local and quality produce. Would definitely recommend a visit.

AKIBA - Canberra City

Inspired by the informal and exciting atmosphere of the great food halls or dining rooms that you find throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The food falls somewhere between Asian barbecue, raw bar and modern day yum cha, the cocktails are contemporary and creative. Service style is casual, relaxed and fun while still delivering an excellent product that is full of flavour. The design of the venue is very inviting with both the bar and the kitchen opened up to the floor so that the bartenders and chef can really be a part of every guest’s experience. Theres a good reason after being around for over 3 years this is still such a hot spot. Hot tip try for a seat at the sushi bar and watch the master at work.

Food is really tasty, we really enjoyed the chef's selection. It meant you got a bit of everything and didn't have to choose from the long list of great sounding stuff available. Nice atmosphere too, as well as some interesting beers and sake. Well worth a visit.
