Terms & Conditions


Akaiito are excited to welcome you and your guests and to offer you an exclusive range of dining experiences. To secure your reservation with us, please familiarise yourself with our booking and cancellation policies.


Cancellations or no-shows within 24 hours’ notice of the reservation time will result in a cancellation fee per person. The Upstairs Fine Dining Restaurant may incur a fee of $100 per person and the Underground Bar & Eatery may incur a fee of $50 per person. Please allow 24 hours prior to your booking time to reschedule  or cancel. This fee is compliant with industry standards and ACCC guidelines. If Akaiito is responsible for canceling your booking, due to COVID-19 restrictions, this fee will be waived.

This cancellation reflects the cost of seasonal ingredients, drink, and staffing incurred by us in anticipation of the booking and lost revenue from the empty table.


To change or amend your reservation please direct message us via your confirmation text or email us directly at booking@akaiitorestaurant.com.au. Calling the restaurant directly may not guarantee a change to your booking.


All Akaiito Upstairs Restaurant bookings are for a 2.5-hour duration and the Underground Bar & Eatery bookings are for a 1.5-hour duration. This period will begin from the time of your booking. We allow a 15 minute grace period before canceling your booking.
