Contemporary American
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.

    Will not be coming back. Everyone's burgers at the table were so salty there were inedible. A couple of our folks had dietary restrictions and when we asked about certain ingredients in the dishes the server would just say "I don't know" and we had to ask several times if he could just check with the kitchen. Lastly- nothing came out on time. Our entrees took 40 min to arrive, our appetizer arrived with our entrees and beverages after the entrees. Not ok.

    This was our first time at Akasha and we had a wonderful meal and the ambiance was festive yet you could still have a conversation. We ordered a small plate, Sev Puri Chaat to start and it was delicious and a perfect light starter. We ordered the Cacio e Pepe and the Chicken Parmigiano and they were both excellent and the portions were generous. In addition, both meals were served "hot' out of the oven which showed the attention to detail and added to our dining experience. (Especially on a busy night for the restaurant kitchen!) For dessert we shared a coffee/chocolate cake with chocolate syrup which was rich and wonderful for chocolate and coffee lovers! The wine/ champagne menu was extensive and I enjoyed my sparling wine from Spain. We can't wait to return to Akasha and try new dishes!

    Better than ever!! We had the most amazing meal last night and are still talking about it this morning! We got the vegetarian pate appetizer with gf crackers instead of the pretzel bread and it was DELICIOUS; an order of the gorgeously browned latkes (go tonight or New Year’s Eve if you want some!); the famous onion rings; and the Draedle cocktail. Fantastic first course! For the entree, the melt in your mouth brisket (with divine onion-soup-like broth); and the incredibly fresh and perfectly cooked Faroe Island salmon on a velvety celery and apple purée. Dessert was over the top: a generous slice of coffee ice cream pie with chocolate cookie crust and whipped cream, drizzled with hot chocolate sauce. GO TONIGHT TO GET THIS INSANELY DELICIOUS MEAL!

    All of the food at Akasha is great, but last night we had the Chanukah dinner. Every single bite was incredible! From the faux chopped liver, the grilled Challah, the latkes, the brisket, the chicken tagine, rugalach, and cannot leave out those jelly donuts.....OMGOMGOMG!!! I cannot possibly say enough about how delicious this was.

    Terrific Californian cuisine and attentive service. Portions tend to small size. The margherita pizza was different but excellent. Steak, burger, and curry was all fresh and flavourful. Good ambience, nice light vibe. Highly recommend and would go back.

    I have been here several times and it's always good. The fact that there's a parking structure literally next door is a big plus in Culver City! The vibe is excellent, everybody is friendly, and the food is fab. I downgraded this last trip slightly because this was my first brunch there and I am not a breakfast guy. Or a brunch guy, clearly, because when I go to brunch I presume there will be a full normal menu PLUS brunchy things. Here, not so much, brunch is primarily (overwhelmingly?) breakfasty. It all still works, but just a suggestion that if when you brunch you are less a "br" person and more an "unch" person, you may want to come here during the week for the normal menu.

    The food was mediocre. And one dish was inedible. Our server had recommended it, but didn't offer to replace it when we told her it was over spiced. So, we paid for food we didn't eat and ordered another dish. I used to love this place.

    Lovely place right in the heart of Culver City. Food and service very good. Two of us had the chicken parm, one had cacio e pepe and the other had seafood curry. My chicken was good but the broccoli that came with it was hardly cooked and that was the only side dish that came on the plate.
