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.

    I love Aveika and the food however the lighting in the restaurant is shocking. It's so dark you need to put the torch on your phone on to see the menu and see what you're actually eating. A, but extra, lighting isn't going to affect the ambience. The only thing that does affect that is the noise from the bar. Jeeze it is so loud. Perhaps creating a separate area for the restaurant to cut out the extremely loud chatter from the bar downstairs would be ideal.

    Can’t beat the food, can’t say the same about the service. we were a group of 6 girls and had a large group of young men doing a bottomless bunch behind us, we couldn’t hear each other and the staff seemed to be fine with them.

    Did not realize we would be dining in a nightclub. Photos and descriptions from OpenTable did not represent what we experienced. Couldn’t hear each talk due to the proximity of the eating area and bar/nightclub. Had one small plate which was fine and a drink and left. Didn’t have all the selection on the menu available the night we were in.

    Not sure they had our booking but they slotted us in, food was amazing!!! Really good music and atmosphere. Could have done with being asked if we wanted another drink after eating and we had to ask to pay the bill but the food far outweighed any negatives. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    We arrived at 2pm and waited approx 15 mins just for a drink. After one hour of waiting we received our starters and after 2 hours of waiting the 2.30 booking on the next table received their mains but we were still waiting. We had a 4 year old child with us who was very hungry and becoming impatient so we left very disappointed. I was really looking forward to it being a special occasion and i’d heard good reviews but my experience was somewhat very different to this.

    Awful experience Waited 90 minutes for starters to arrive no child’s meal brought over then a further 40 minutes for mains, child’s meal was absolutely freezing with chilli all over the fries that wasn’t mentioned on the menu so she couldn’t eat it, we didn’t receive our side dish all the veg on the dinner was cold, no staff around to tell about the food being awful then took forever to get the bill we will not be returning.

    It was a wonderful experience dining at Aveika. I came with a group of colleagues for a late dinner. Keeping in mind that all of us work in hospitality, I can confirm that our expectations were satisfied. The food was delicious, came on time, beautifully presented and hot. Speaking about the menu itself, I would suggest it could have been more balanced. There is a lack of traditional Asian desserts. I love the idea of miso toffee sauce on the Sticky Toffee, but it's not Asian enough for me. Speaking about the service, we agreed that all front of house members are polite and friendly. Although there was a little confusion about our booking on arrival. ( We had booked directly from OpenTable, not from the official website of the restaurant. Hence, they didn't know we were coming. Despite that, we were given a nice table.) Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and I would definitely recommend Aveika. 👌

    Food was delicious Staff where friendly However it was advertised that cocktails where 2 for £10 but what they didn’t tell you if you ordered them in the restaurant that they where normal price, you had to be in the bar to get them at 2 for £10. We ordered cocktails at the end of our meal so it might have been nice for staff to inform customers of this so that they could choose where they wanted to drink.

    We went for lunch at 1pm on Saturday. We loved the food and the service was great but it was so noisy we could hear ourselves speak!! There were lots of large noisy groups in which spoiled the ambience and our experience. Such a shame- might be worth the restaurant considering a quieter area for couples who want to enjoy the dinning experience!

    We really enjoyed our first visit to Aveika. It's a very cool space and we loved the vibe. We went on a Wednesday night (quite early) so it wasn't too busy but I can imagine it gets quite lively at weekends etc. The food was very good indeed, the service was friendly and it was fun. A very positive experience all round!

    Everything was good, we enjoyed the bottomless meat and fish meals and couldn't finish the drinks. The waiting staff were very attentive but not intrusive. We particularly enjoyed the desserts. we would certainly return again. It was quiet which suited us, but I am sure there would be times when it was noisier.

    We came for the bottomless brunch. Was very disappointing for the following reasons; You are only allowed to choose ONE drink for the whole duration. So unlimited Prosecco OR one just ONE litre (therefore not bottomless) of a choice of 3 cocktails which were pornstar martini, a gin mix and aperol spritz all of which I don’t like. The food was not nice at all and quite minimum. The chicken was dry. I ended up paying extra and bought cocktails from the bar so definitely not value for money for a bottomless brunch. I’ve had bottomless brunches at a few places and they always offer a selection of drinks you can choose from. Very disappointing.

    Service was excellent, both bar and restaurant staff were outstanding! The ambience and atmosphere is really nice, modern and lively, the place is beautiful. The only thing that really felt out of place in a venue like this is cocktails that cost £9-10 and are served in plastic glasses? I think you should really consider of looking into this.

    Absolutely disgusting service. Rang to amend booking, to which some poor lad who took the call made an error and put the wrong date, some of my party turned up early granted. To which the duty manager Paris rang my phone as was disgusting down the phone arguing with me Saying she had spoke to me earlier that day and I asked to change it to another day which I categorically didn’t! Down to a genuine mistake which happens but the way it was handled and the way i was spoken to was appalling! Then the same lady was rude to my party as there was a similarity to my party booking name and another one, so then they had to move us and spoke to my party like rubbish too! Rushed off the table, service was disgusting, food was ok. Drinks were ok, but felt so out of place and uncomfortable considering the amount of money we spend there! Wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t return!
