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.

Wonderful food and very helpful staff as there is a lot of options. Definitely go for a selection of several small dishes.
Only wish we had more now.

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.

Noise level might be a problem for some people. Food good value, drinks not as much. I liked my choice my partner had teriyaki chicken which he thought was too dry. I enjoyed my seabass

Holly went above and beyond for us and found discarded umbrellas for us to protect us from the rain.

I had fillet beef from the grill which was perfectly cooked and tasted great and to start I had the beef tacos which I never wanted to end !

My wife had katsu chicken for a main and started with grilled chicken on a skewer and she loved it.

Will definitely revisit this place !

Food was great. The woman who served us was lovely but we were waiting up to half an hour for drinks and and we were sat with dirty plates for ages even though the waiters came past multiple times and didn’t clear. If the food wasn’t so nice this would’ve been a disappointing anniversary meal.

Great food and fast service, but pretty loud from the DJ in the bar section. We asked if there was a quieter area to move to but it was full, however after ordering our drinks a table became free that we were moved to. Staff were friendly and very attentive even though it was busy. Cost is what you’d expect at a nice restaurant for sushi. We’d definitely visit again but perhaps not on a Saturday night.

Staff helpful. Starter was very nice, main course wasn't so, vegetables nicely presented but tasteless.
Noise levels were too much, shouting across a table over a meal is not ideal. Noise coming from attached club, needs to be segregated.
Door staff, mmm thought I was the customer, show some curtesy.

Restaurant was too cold, dodgy door letting draft in. Air con too cold. Waiter took plates away whilst still eating! Always rushing us and bothering us. Birthday meal with no special atmosphere

A great vibe for a dinner with friends, very reasonable, starter and a main for £14 And the classic cocktails for £4.95 each!!! Bargain!!
The only thing, we were running late for our reservation but we called to let the restaurant know before hand.. they said it was not a problem. So when we arrived they told us we only had the table for 1 hour!!! So we felt anxious about not being able to get the full experience.
However, in the end we were able to stay for longer!

Has always been one of my firm favourites but the main course was so bad I had to send back to kitchen and it was removed from the bill. The fish was overcooked and the vegetables nearly raw. Used to be a really good set menu but a few of our favourites have been removed hence doesn't offer the best value anymore. 3 of our part were also sick that evening. Was really disappointed.

Still a great value place to eat. Set lunch menu has changed slightly and the beef and corriander robata isn't available anymore but the chicken marinated in soy is delicious and they now do a seabass main which again is lovely
