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.

As always - great food and great service @ Aveika. The bottomless brunch is truly that! Staff can’t do enough for you and the food was so tasty and delivered swiftly.

If I could ask for one thing it would be a dessert (they used to offer one).

We’ll be back again 🥂♥️

Excellent food and friendly staff. Will definitely be back!
The only issue is they automatically add a service charge- the staff would’ve earned a larger tip than with the enforced service charge.

Amazing, helpful staff who really went the extra mile.
We had bottomless brunch and we never had an empty glass. The food was extremely good standard. Considering we were late we expected less time on the bottomless brunch however the staff were great and due to the reason why we were late they started our time when we arrived.
Would 100% recommend

Perfect meal in lovely surroundings. Appetisers were delicious and a good size of portion.
Prawn crackers and spicy dip was mouthwatering. Two of our party had sushi which they said was delicious, I had the chicken skewers and my husband had mini sliders. So delicious and our waiter David H was very attentive but professional and happy to offer advice on the dishes when asked. Irish coffee to finish was perfect.
Wine with the meal was reasonable and smooth to drink

It's a night club restaurant, kids arriving to have a picture for instagram with a drink while people are eating, tables too close to each other even before covid. Food was average, over cooked squid, prawns were good and tempura veg ok. Our waiter was good
