AKASHA restaurant/bar/cafe features New American cuisine offering comfort food with big flavors and sustainable ingredients, for carnivores and herbivores alike. Chef/Caterer Akasha Richmond brings visionary cuisine to her own neighborhood eatery located in the historic Hull Building in downtown Culver City. Keeping the principles of sustainability in mind, the building's original steel, wood, concrete and brick arches were restored while the design materials pair with a seventies modernity to exude an inviting and lively atmosphere. The artisan bakery has both sweet and savory selections, as well as locally roasted direct trade coffee. The 20-seat bar highlights fresh juice cocktails, organic and premium spirits, beer and wine. The entire menu is available for catering or to go.

Quite simply it’s a great restaurant with an interesting variety of dishes. Many of them are unique and inspired by well known Chef, Akasha Richmond. On top of all of this they have a great hamburger!

I really enjoyed the cocktails we had. They had great flavor and complexity. The food was really good - comfort food with extra taste. I had the fried chicken sliders and we shared onion rings and the Indian street food appetizer. I would recommend this restaurant for a nice/casual dinner with friends.

I have dined at AKASHA many times, mostly for business lunches. The service at the front desk and from servers is always superb. The food is delicious and high quality with enough vegetarian options to please everyone. The wine list is always interesting if somewhat overpriced. The restaurant can be loud at lunchtime but still is comfortable and workable. On my most recent business lunch visit, the Host and Hostess seated us outside which worked out perfectly.
