    As always the food was great (tiny portions) but great quality. service was perfect. My only complaint is how dark it is. When you reach the top of the stairs and turn right towards the hostess booth there is a bench and my friend smashed his leg off of it. Soooo bad. Blood / huge bruise. This bench is a HUGE hazard as it’s so dark you can not see it and even the staff knows about it. When we told the staff he said he was going to tell the manager but no one came to acknowledge the injury. The waiter apologized but no manager cared enough to come and acknowledge. It’s the things like this that make me want to try somewhere new next time. We will see. Great food and service tho!

    It’s the best Asian fusion restaurant in Toronto! Manager Sasha elevated the whole experience by being very attentive and full of positive energy. The staff at Akira Back really care about the customer experience. Looking forward to my next visit!

    Liz was our server and she was great at guiding us through the menu choices. The manager was also very attentive and accompanying throughout our dinner. We had the ribeye, sashimi platter, truffle wagyu nigiri, and vegetable fried rice. Amazing food and excellent service.

    We went for my fiancé’s birthday weekend. We were super excited to go, but the dishes were hit or miss. One would be delicious and we would scarf it down. The next would be mid. Of the two spicy dishes we ate, one was unbelievably unbalanced in spice. Service and atmosphere made the evening better than ok, but sadly, I could tell my fiancé was still hungry since she didn’t like several dishes. Unfortunately, the worst dinner we had in our five nights in Toronto.

    Grande variété d’entrée chaude et froide (pizza au thon, délicieuse). Les rolls (protein rolls, particulièrement), succulents. Bon rapport qualité prix. Ambiance dynamique, un peu bruyante.
