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.

Can’t fault anything about Aveika. Great food, pleasant atmosphere at a reasonable price. Portion sizes were bigger than we expected too, so we ended up being stuffed by the end. I’d mentioned that it was my Wife’s birthday, so they even brought out a cake with happy birthday written on the plate at the end of the meal. Great place, would definitely recommend!

The menu said tempura vegetables, unfortunately it was battered vegetables. The main course Teriyaki Chicken was lovely.
The restaurant is rather dark and it was hard to read the menu.
Staff were helpful. Alternative entry and exit and plenty space from others

David our waiter was the most lovely, helpful and knowledgeable Man I’ve ever been served by. We were all so impressed with him and his professionalism. The food was outstanding. Everything we had was delicious. Service impeccable. I will definitely be returning and hope he is available to look after us again. Thanks David. You are a credit to Aveika.

Really enjoyed our anniversary meal at Aveika. Was easy to book on the online system. The menu was varied, we were especially impressed with the wide choice of cocktails. The food was amazing and served quickly, we were never waiting for long. The only criticism, the waitress that served us seemed young and a little abrupt. Considering the restaurant's reputation, we would expect customer service to be a little better an more polite.

The nicest sushi I have ever tasted, it was so fresh. Excellent service. The only downside was that the toilets had flooded but alternative facilities were available next door.

We were served by David who was amazing and gave great recommendations. We ended up with slightly too much food but that’s ok.

We made use of the September dine out to help out scheme they still had running which was great.

We eat a lot of Japanese and Asia cuisine, this was one of the best we have ever had

Thank you Aveika

Service was a little slow but this may have been due to the half price discount causing the restaurant to be busy so we didn’t mind too much

Food at Aveika is second to none!
The ambiance pre-covid was always amazing! So understandably it wasn’t the same but the interior is so beautiful and is just so nice to be in!!

Staff were lovely, friendly and very efficient.

Poor service
Daughter waited 45 minutes after our starters so around 1 hours for chicken noodles and when they came they had no chicken in this was sent away . We then finished our food and she ate alone.
She was not offered a desert by staff they brought the bill.
Staff were stood around in yet everything seemed so delayed and the place did not appear busy.
One gentleman went on and on about mocktails to the kids which then obviously they wanted one which were 4.50 each and they did not drink them but I felt pressured in getting them one.

Really enjoyed the food but I thought the setting was not quite right.

Tables & Chairs And general decoration of the area for dinning felt like I was in a Costa café. Based on the food expected a “As you like it” / Botanist standard of decor or set up.

Service food was on a par with the two mentioned establishments.

Based on that experience alone I would not come back for a “special occasion” event ie wife birthday.

We were also staying at the Vermont part of the same family ownership, which we enjoyed too. Location great but you are next too the central station.

But again something was missing. Trying to be 30s but did not do it for us.

We booked using the online system for Saturday evening of the bank holiday. Booking was easy. When we arrived we were politely shown where to sit. Everything was very socially distanced and the restaurant was immaculate. The waiter was attentive and we were so impressed by the quality of the food, the menu was extensive so there is something to suit everyone. Food and drinks arrived in a timely manner. The ambience was incredible, the lighting and music really set the vibe for an evening out. We will definitely be visiting again! 5 stars!

Staff were lovely and very attentive! I found that the vegetables on both mine and my partners plates were undercooked, having previously eaten here many times I know how they are supposed to be. There was also a lack of teryaki sauce on my dish which was unusual as there is usually enough as it is a teriyaki based dish. Other than that the ambience was amazing great music and a good vibe overall. I will definitely be back soon.

Food was poor to say the least, ordered salmon and it was like a piece of rubber. Would not visit again nor would I recommend to anyone else.
Staff were friendly and removed the meal from our bill.

Food was overcooked, one waitress was very good but apart from that food was poor, music is too loud for a resteraunt. Came to £60 inc the eat out for less when I don’t think it was even worth £40 as food was not nice

Food was very nice but the service was crap. Put in a corner and forgotten about. Waiter had about as much personality as a wet dish rag, ordered a jug of water and a fresh apple juice and he got the order wrong.
