Contemporary Asian
Aveika Restaurant & Late Bar is a modern, creative Asian Inspired & Grill that takes its inspiration from the Japanese concept of an ‘Izakaya’. Aveika is a sophisticated establishment where the atmosphere is both stylish and vibrant.

The Robata grill serves a wide range of locally sourced meats and poultry, organic vegetables and seafood, prepared and served with in-house sauces and marinades.

Our style of food is ‘authentic yet not traditional’, a modern interpretation of traditional Asian inspired cuisine, where the emphasis is centred on creating a harmony of flavours.

Our sushi bar offers wide variety of fresh fish for use as sashimi, nigiri, maki and speciality rolls.

Excellent food and drinks , staff were attentive, lost a star because we waited for drinks and had to ask for prawn crackers after waiting a while , staff were very good just very busy

I have ate in this restaurant before and had a great experience. Saturday night was a let down. It took around 15 mins to order drinks - I had to get the waiters attention. The food wasn’t up to the high standard as before. The duck pancakes were fatty, the firecracker chicken rice was flavourless and the lamb was fatty.

Food was delightful however a very ignorant waitress. Once food was served the waitress failed to check on our table for the rest of the evening. She did not check if we required further drinks or a dessert. When i came to pay the bill she commented "Your only paying the full amount?" Obviously expecting a tip! I have no issues on rewarding good service but only when it is good service.

We ordered several starters, all were great, especially duck pancakes and king prawns. Black cod main was a bit dry, terriaki chicken was great. Comfortable dining room with very good service. Really good experience

Exceptional food, great double date restaurant and brilliant service. The only (very harsh) criticism I could find is that our party found a couple of the dishes slightly on the smaller side, however we all left feeling suitably satisfied and not stuffed. I will definitely be going back and couldn't recommend highly enough.

Lively atmosphere and window tables have Newcastle Keyside View. Extensive Asian menu including Sushi Sushimi and Maki rolls to chicken teriyaki and miso cod. Dining with my mother and son and his friends and there was something for everyone on the menu. Small plates and main course portions very generous. Fabulous servise with the lively ambience justifies the menu prices. Lastly cocktail menu and wine list very good. Can thoroughly recommend for a special night out.

Came to Aveika on a Friday evening and was able to utilise the set menu which is a steal for 3x courses and was able to enjoy the half price cocktail menu. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional. From the starter to the dessert, all three courses were delicious and very reasonably priced. the portions were more than enough and the ambience was great (music in the background but not too loud to interrupt or disrupt conversations). A great restaurant with an awesome vibe

Food was excellent. A great twist on some Japanese classics. A pity it was so noisy, conversation was difficult. Also sake available in small flasks rather than by the bottle would be an improvement.

Lovely restaurant but it was very quiet and staff very quick serving the meals , we were finished a three course meal within forty minutes. Food fabulous and staff lovely but not enough time between courses

it was really lovely, the only part i didn't enjoy was where we were sat as it was right in the middle I felt very conscious and also right under the aircon so had to keep my coat on the whole time, next time I will definitely request a warmer, more out the way spot. Apart from that everything was amazing, food, service & very speedy. Thank you

Booked this for our anniversary dinner. I have always wanted to try Avieka beccause it looks amazing from the outside and I'm really glad I did. The service was fantastic, the food was incredible and the staff kindly arranged for a complimentary selection of desserts with the message Happy Anniversary written. The whole experience was brilliant and I'd recommend anybody thinking of trying this place to give it a go!

As ever an amazing experience, the food is just so lovely. Mid week deals are very good , but even if they didn't have these I would still go. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Newcastle.

Aveika was great, the food was good and the portions were good as well. We ordered sushi and a rice dish, the servers were really polite. The only thing I was disappointed by was being unable to replace one of the chicken sushi’s on one of the platters (I’m pescatarian) I’m sure they could adjust. Also, club next door to the dining area, not the best idea. Flashing lights and noise from the music is a bit tacky

Great location, good food . Sushi was very good , steak was good but lacked flavour and although served medium was very charcoaled. I requested a window seat as it was my wife’s birthday which they accommodated. At the end of our meal they surprised my wife with a birthday dessert which had 3 mini desserts, fruit and a birthday message, which I thought was a lovely touch until I got the bill and they had added this surprise dessert to my bill which was £11.95, which was a disappointment and a little bit cheeky I thought. Not wanting to Question this due to the occasion I paid the bill, I did question this on the way out and the member of staff was surprised I had not requested the dessert but did nothing to rectify my concern which I was surprised at.
