I have been to Aveika on many occasions and I love the food. However the food served for the bottomless brunch lacked the quality I have experience at other meals. Had this of been my first visit to Aveika I would not have been impressed with the food and probably not returned. But I know the main dishes served at Aveika are of good quality so I do think some improvements may need to be made here to ensure Aveika keep to its high food standards.
Service was fantastic. Staff friendly and attentive as always and Aveika still serve the best frozen daiquiris in town!

Food was very nice but I would not go back on a Saturday night again. We were sat next to a table of people out on the drink shouting and singing being disruptive.
Spoilt it for people there just for a nice meal
And the room was so dark you couldn’t see the menu or what you were even eating

Arrived on time for our table, ordered drinks and food together. Drinks arrived very quickly. Not so much on the food side, waited 40 minutes only to be told there did not process our food order, food arrived within the hour. The meal was nice, won’t rush back due to the wait time for our food.

Very lively restaurant, too loud for our liking (but we’re the wrong side of 50!). Our main course came out literally just a few minutes after our starter which was a little disappointing but the food was very good so would still definitely recommend but to the younger generation.

Went from restaurant week only to he told that it finished at 7pm on a Friday. At no pout does it tell you that, there is no t&c’s when you click the booking link. It only states that it excludes Saturdays. Manager was useless and totally unapologetic saying there was nothing he could do. He did contract himself bu saying it was available on Saturdays.
I had a lovely time there the week before but this time it was awful all due to the poor service.

Food and cocktails were lovely, however we were told by the first waiter that the set menu was £10 for 2 dishes, unfortunately this wasn’t the case and ended up being slightly more expensive and we didn’t receive one of our deserts as well. On the whole a lovely place with a great atmosphere but worth knowing what you’re paying for when you go !!

Very awkward feeling as my boyfriend heard them make a remark about me when we first walked in. Our drinks got made But we waited 10 mins for them as the manager stared us down until i looked over to then take our lDs (we're 20). Should of done it befor making our drinks. Good waitress and food. But sat most tables togeather (no privacy feeling)

First visit to Aveika and we were not disappointed. Yeah ok they forgot our prawn crackers but apart from that the food was delicious (we had prawns, bao buns, chilli beef and chicken robata) and the overall service from the staff (David, Liam and the Floor Manager) was courteous and professional. It made a pleasant change to enjoy Japanese food on the Quayside. It was busy for a Monday with uni graduations all day (all week in fact) but there was a great atmosphere with so many celebrations. Reasonable price for food - great value for money on the set menu and an array of cocktails too. Give it a go!

Food wasn’t great at all two of our burger meals were burned but we did get a complimentary drink. Service came up to £10. As the beginning the guy nearly made me cry as some of my friends were a bit late due to closed roads and he said I was at risk of loosing my table , it was my birthday but staff were very friendly!!

The Venue was lovely and food was great. It was very dark and loud so was difficult to see and hear other guests and eat. The staff gave 2 menus which were the same with different prices and when went to order off one they told us that the price was actually the main menu price. I didn’t understand why they gave us the second menu if it wasn’t active at the time. The staff rushed us out to clear the table not offering any desserts.

The staff were very rude especially when i’ding is after we had already had one drink the man who i assume to be the manager came over to id one of the group and during that another person informed us that the other staff members where chuckling whilst we were being i’d. overall the food was lovely and the drinks but the staff were very rude and full of themselves besides the young lad working there who was fine to us and the girl on the door who helped us.
