Enjoy mouthwatering appetisers such as the Akira Back pizza with umami aioli, micro shiso, white truffle oil and tuna, salmon tataki with mustard su-miso sauce and pickled wasabi or creamy spinach salad with compressed spinach, roasted sesame dressing and rayu. Meanwhile, starters include crispy tofu with a Korean chilli glaze and AB tacos with the option to mix and match your favourite fillings.
The signature rolls are not to be missed and offer something for every palate. Tuck into cow-cow which features braised short rib with Asian slaw, perfect storm with shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, salmon belly aburi and chipotle mayo or the vegan spider roll with enoki tempura, avocado, sweet soy and chipotle aioli.
For the ones who prefer Cinema Classics, Akira Back at THEATRE has got your covered. Reach for loaded nachos with pulled Korean BBQ beef, fresh jalapeño, avocado and crispy tofu, chicken Cumberland hotdog with robata mayo, torched nori, crispy onions and French fries or the epic VOX Cinemas classic burger with a beef patty, American cheese, classic burger sauce and French fries.
