I have been dining here since the opening, when they were among the first of many restaurants that created the new Culver City. Akasha remains, many others have closed. Akasha thrives because of a constantly changing menu, a great bar with talented bartenders, well chosen wine list, and great great food. In addition the special chef nights and other events... More

Pleasant ambiance and great service at the bar. Nice selection of wines by the glass and the quinoa bowl with grilled tofu was delicious.

Thankfully it didn't make me sick, as it was undercooked and falling apart . It was supposed to be spicy and had no flavor at all. No jalapeños, as promised, but there were tiny specs of red pepper. It came with a nice bibb lettuce leaf, a mediocre tomato and red onion. And regular old Heinz ketchup. What could have... More

We had takeaway from Akasha on our first night in LA. Varied menu and good for vegetarians. I had a great salad from there and chips (for risk of being too healthy!) Really tasty and prepared quickly.

For five of us we ordered a total of 10 dishes, mostly small plates, but also some veggie sides, brussels and spinach. It was just the right amount to allow us room for a few amazing desserts. My favorite was the burrata on walnut pesto which was just amazingly creamy. The octopus was especially tasty. Never had the chance to... More

We loved the Thanksgiving dinner. Being from New England, but visiting our daughter in California, we were afraid we'd get the typical trendy, pseudo health-crazed, overly embellished California fare, but we were so happy to see a totally traditional meal: turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce. That's Thanksgiving! Not only that, but it was delicious, and the pie... More

114 reviews Elite ’15 4.0 star rating 12/19/15 I used to go here when it first opened and they are pretty consistent with their food. Love the onion rings and the mac and cheese. But the best thing about Akasha is their happy hour. Wednesdays are 50% off for bottle of wines. On normal days its just 50% of their... More

I would have given Akasha a 5 star review but each time I visit the service is so terrible. Maybe they are understaffed. Our waiter doesn't come to check in to see if we need anything or take or orders often enough. It's very disruptive to flag down a different waiter and they do not come help you they just... More

The decor, The staff. The meal. The service! All stand out as top notch! Four of us were seated promptly and the server (David) knew the menu inside and out and too pride in his job. Great place for an evening out with friends or for a fantastic business dinner! I will be back
