    Venue is nice and in good location. Good food and great craft beer. Although $13 for a schooner is pretty steep even for a stronger beer. However at 6;30 on a Wednesday evening we were only two customers there. Ambience was nil! Leichhardt really needs a venue like this to succeed so we will support it again.

    Four of us went there to catch up for a drink. We sat inside as weather was too warm. Great atmosphere and terrific table service. Drinks, both cocktails and different beers, were all enjoyable. We also ordered the share mezze platter which was fabulous! Definitely will be our go to in Leichardt. Next time we'll stay longer and try their pizzas as they also looked great!

    Drinks are expensive and when you buy a cocktail the glass is not even half full. The limited menu is good. The 4 cheese pizza was the best I've had.

    Dinner for 6 on Sunday night. Good pizza, great bread and plenty of good Akashi tap beer. But the highlight was the friendly, knowledgeable and quick team serving. Thanks for making a birthday dinner enjoyable and we want to return.

    Had an extremely enjoyable evening at Akasha Barrel Room. The beers were outstanding and the food was superb. Definitely try one of the barrel aged beers. They are served by the glass if you don't fancy a whole bottle. Definitely going back again soon.
