First time in, the shrimp sushi and crispy tuna(with seaweed on top) , also the toro sashimi are the must haves! We tried to leave room for dessert but was too full. Gotta save it for the next time.
Definitely will return !
Had a spot at the bar as the dining room was full. The girl that served us who was also the bartender, I forgot her name, but she had a medium length blonde hair- she was very rude, uninterested in serving us, acted like we were bothering her when asking for another drink ( our drinks sat empty).... she literally ruined our date- the food itself was great, as was the ambience but her lack of customer service has made me never go back- shame!
Great food never disappoints.
Excellent food and service. Noise level can be overwhelming.
First time visiting Akira Back. Service and food was fantastic! Would definitely return
Service is amazing.
Outstanding in every way.
Fushion is a combination of the best of different cultures, or it is about the combination of the bad of different cultures?
Everything was delicious. Our server was spot-on and very attentive. He knew the menu. I expected more from the ambience and decor. Not great acoustics. Very loud and muffled.
Great food great service
One of the best meals, service was amazing, food was beyond delicious and the vibe was sexy and dark. Loved everything about this spot.
Pricey place, but worth it. I had the seaweed salad and the waiter kindly recommended the mushroom roll with truffle (made vegan) and it was delicious! My friend got the crab and wagyu beef tacos and loved it. Portion sizes are relatively small, but would be good to order a couple of things and share. Highly recommend!
Abit dark. ............................................................,,,,,,....,.
They customized an entire menu and dishes for two vegans! Absolutely amazing experience our server was 5 star service! Love it and definitely coming back!
Unbelievable food and excellent service. Everyone at the dinner can’t stop talking about how great the food was
The staff ( host/hostess) were attentive so most the stars are for them. The place is too dark and super loud. The table arrangements are odd. Cocktails are average...nothing special. The tempura was super greasy. I'd never seen tempura that greasy before. The batter was also too thick. It was take-out quality if not worse. I was expecting a lighter/airy tempura for a place like this. We got a sushi rolls and that was good but there are better ones in the city. Ordered the black sesame cheesecake and I appreciate the minimal/ avant garde effort but it needs more improvement in both taste and presentation. It looked like they picked up cake crumbles (that didn't have any sesame taste) from left overs and threw it on the plate. The cheese squares had the sesame taste but nothing special. I wouldn't try it again even for free.
Atmosphere is amazing. Food was Okay. $500+ bill but wasn't full.
I will definitely return as the overall experience was very good. Be ready to open your wallet as the food is amazing but portions and bites are for the most part just that “bites” and the smallest appetite would need multiple dishes for a meal but choosing a favorite from the night is impossible it was all that good! Servers where super friendly and helpful but steps of service made it a bit disjointed would be my only criticism but the more than made up for long waits and confusion by just being so nice. For a great night at a really chic scene spot, you can’t go wrong!
Had the Brother from another Mother sushi and Waygu tacos. It’s the first time sushi ever made me cry. Something incredible happened.
I don’t eat seafood or beef but they had loads of options for me! Try the crispy pork sushi and lamb! And the kim chi bacon fried rice.
One thing that did upset me was that I specified it was my boyfriends birthday many times. On the phone, via email, in person. And nothing was done. It would have been nice to acknowledge it.
The food is amazing! Esp the pizza. Really like this place.
Great service. And really good food. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed our night
Underwhelming Omakase menu. Expected more. Great ambiance and service.
Place is one of Toronto 's top luxury resto without a doubt .
Great Experience. Amazing food.
We had a great experience at Akira ! Everything we had was good but the tuna pizza and black cod are to die for !! Drinks came a little slow but our server was excellent and apologetic. Dessert was great as well with beautiful presentation.
Amazing food! Josh served us and he was great! He went above and beyond to make our experience memorable!
Food was simply amazing. Sat at the sushi counter and you could see all chefs took pride in what they were doing. Even pastry chef. I’d fly back to Toronto just to eat here.
The food was amazing!
The food was unremarkable. Kid of blah. Given the high prices - it was an especially poor value. The desert was a joke - it was tiny - the size of amuse-bouche or something that should come free with a coffee.
No one has asked us at the end if the meal was good- if they did I'd have complained about the desert.
Don't waste your money - choose Miku instead (it is truly exceptional)
Just Always Fabulous...crazy fresh sashimi; want to marry the Miso Black Cod...the Spicy miso soup is everything, waygu beef taco...tuna pizza...and on....
Worth every penny for the consistent quality of the food and the service, fabulous by GRAHAM, he made the night so much fun. Thank you from the host to Graham to the chef and and servers.
Waiter was amazing! Great service.
All the water glasses at the table were dirty. Not as in water spots dirty but literally grime on the glass and slight sticky feeling when holding dirty! No apologies when we asked them to replace. Twice food was brought to our table which we did not order. No apologies. The second time it happened the first server simply swooped in grabbed the plate from the second server bringing the wrong plate and turned around to serve the two dishes to the neighboring table with no word of apology and no interaction with our table simply leaving us, and the second server startled and awkward. Lastly! There was gooey gum under the table that ended up sticking to the knee of my pants!!! The server seemingly uncaring simply saying "some people!" came off uncaring and unsurprised. For a restaurant that boasts its Michelin star chef, they should be highly embarrassed at the level of service and quality of the environment.
Wonderfull Japanese food. One of my best :) Each dish was a suprise.
Food was absolutely phenomenal. We ordered 5 dishes and every single one was a 10. The service was also amazing
Interior definitely helped with the ambiance and food tasted as good as it looks! Presentation and taste did not disappoint! World class experience! I highly recommend as it is moderately priced and service has been exceptional!
Experienced other Akira Back restaurants in the past, and it never disappoints!
I am in Toronto for business and was alone for dinner. Service was impeccable and never felt like I was by myself. Friendly staff!
very creative and tasty sushi, definitely coming back
