The food and ambiance is consistently very good!

Brought some folks from out-of-town. They were impressed! Very reliable and the food does not disappoint. Something on the menu for everyone, vegetarians, vegans, and even those pesky meat-eaters :)

It was my birthday yesterday, Two of the restaurants I wanted to go were closed on Monday. While struggling for restaurant choices, I decided to be adventurous and explore our neighborhood of Downtown Culver. I recalled walking by Akasha, felt a little intimidated by the dark windows and their eclectic menu never really grabbed me all these years. But then... More

We joined another couple for dinner here during a recent California visit and had a marvelous experience. The place had a wonderful ambience and food choices were eclectic and varied. Our meals were very enjoyable, as the food was fresh, tasty and nicely presented. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine with our meal and left feeling happy and satisfied.

This used to be one of my favorite Culver City stops, but the pick-up scene has gotten so overwhelming it's a) hard to get a table, b) awkward waiting around for a table while the guys ogle you, c) impossible to have dinner with girlfriends without guys circling around, offering to buy drinks, generally disrupting a nice "girls night out."...

Since we were arriving around 6 o'clock on a Friday night, we were surprised the restaurant wasn't full. Nice looking place, and decent menu. However, for $30 the piece of Seabass I had was way too small. Once our food was served to us, we were ignored. Lots of neat restaurants around here, so we'll try some others in the... More

First of all Akasha is a really great looking restaurant with some very interesting lighting. My wife and I enjoy eating at the bar and have always enjoyed the food and service. We are always conscious of the fresh ingredients used in their cooking. The Culver City Farmer's market sets up right in front of the restaurant. When dining with... More

Inattentive service. Okay food. No reason to return. Waiter did not write down our order and kept forgetting items so the progression of how dinner was served was unusual. No one checked in or refilled water or cleared plates.

Great neighborhood restaurant with an excellent Kale Ceasar Salad, some nice flatbread pizzas, and other great vegetarian and meateater options. I don't recommend their cocktails - the mixologists are so-so, but they have a decent wine list and beers too.

As a Culver City local, I really excited to try this restuarant. On Friday, I finally had a chance and it wasn't worth all the hype. My friend is a regular customer of Akasha, so he swore by this place. We didn't have a reservation so we asked to be added to the wait list-2 people. The hostess had an... More

Had dinner with two other couples. We enjoyed delicious salads, tandoori spiced chicken wings, skillet mac and cheese, agnolotti, braised wild mushroom flatbread pizza, and sea bass entree. Lovely cocktails as well- good service
