Great food, very diverse in offer and price, but fair. We sat outside, very nice. Only disappointment were few roaches outside, but the restaurant could not help that I guess.

We stopped prior to a Forum concert with reservations. No hello, no welcome, no greeting...just a growled question and no smile/eye contact: do you have a reservation? On leaving she still had no smile and a poor attitude--- Ambience and atmosphere is upscale casual and quite attractive. Food server was personable, professional and knowledgable. Food: Salmon, kale salad and chicken... More

We visited this restaurant to celebrate the engagement of a relative. There were 8 of us present and we all ordered different meals. Every meal was wonderfully delicious and beautifully presented. I had the Kale Caesar which was fantastic, and split their small Ahi plate and scallop plate with my niece. We also ordered several desserts which were plentiful in... More

Found this restaurant on Open Table, and was not disappointed. We shared several small plates, including a fig flat bread, chicken sliders and more. . . .delightful mix of flavors, fruits and seasoning. . . . will most definitely return.

When in LA, it's hard to get people together because of the vast distances between friends' neighborhoods and food requirements and fetishes. Akasha has been a wonderful central meeting place where we've received gourmet meals that please a wide range of tastes from vegan to gluten free to meat lovers, with superbly selected locally sourced ingredients. Yes, it's a bit... More

Very funky place as you'd expect for LA. Not for a quiet, romantic night but that's fine, the place clearly has got it right. Service was fast and not too USA style overly chatty/friendly. Good wines, but for these Aussies disappointing that there was only one Shiraz (Syrah). Good value, and would have liked to return for coffee and brekky,... More

Burgers are good, but expensive. Service is OK, too OK to keep me from giving it a higher rating. They do however make the best onion rings I have ever eaten. I recommend it for that alone, just don't expect a warm and fuzzy experience.

This was our second time at the restaurant, and this time, we were generally very pleased. The first time, we went with a large group and had a bunch of smaller dishes to share. Given the range of eating preferences/restrictions, it didn't work so well. This time, we all ordered our own main dishes. Mine was a vegetarian dish that... More

We chose this restaurant in the LA restaurant week. This meant they had a special, favorable priced menu. We happened to be there on their Wine Wednesday, when bottles are half price, so an extra bonus. Good food, good service (pity that the waiter could not keep our wine glasses filled, we had to call him 2 or 3 times... More

Akasha has a pretty cool atmosphere, a friendly staff and free WiFi. It's in the heart of Downtown Culver City so parking can be a challenge at times. It's a nice spot to have lunch or just grab a drink and chat.
