I ate here with a group of seven colleagues and everyone enjoyed sharing several different sushi and sashimi combinations that were recommended by the server. We also tried the sashimi with just the rock salt and wasabi which was a new experience. We tried several different sake options but the first, dry one, was my favorite. Tell the server what... More

A fabulous combination of sushi styled foods and steaks....these are two of my favorite things but this chef goes over the top with it all from beginning to end. I will say my friend and I saw these beautiful towers of tempura going by and had to try one.... They were far more visually appealing than tasty....especially as compared to... More

This is in the corner of a local upscale mall, but they have a nice entrance with valet parking, and inside the room is beautiful, just what you expect from a trendy Scottsdale restaurant. There is a huge open wood-fired grill and afterwards my clothes smelled like smoke, I loved it. Had great Hamachi sashimi as "compachi" which had it... More

Had a great dinner with my wife. Bit pricey but worth it. We had the chef's special sushi dinner. I can see why the Blue fin tuna is so desired . Much better dinner especially with a Groupon special.

Decided to go try their happy hour which was all night long during the summer. The pork belly was good, but overall portions were so small for $11. The seared salmon sushi was 4 small pieces for $9. Drink was $9!. The burger slider was not bad for $3. Total bill was $40 including tip and I was not even... More

To decide whether or not to visit Roka Akor, one has to understand that it is conceived as a dining experience rather than as a place which offers good food. The architecture, the ambiance, the staff and the menu are designed to enhance the feeling of exotic luxury. This is not the best sushi restaurant in America or probably even... More

The food was awesome but the presentation of the good was the crowning jewel. Not only do you get to see it made on the tri level grill you you get to watch the presentation prep and then see the final beautiful products. Whole fish was amazing. My son had the lamb and he raves about it. My daughter the... More

We returned for our third trip to Roka Akor the other night and chose the Omakase menu for the second time. We were not disappointed. Our meal began with charred shishito peppers with ponzu & bonito. The char on the peppers provided a bitter taste that was balanced quite nicely when dipped in soy sauce. Our second course came simultaneously... More

As previously reviewed, we visit Arizona on a monthly basis and never miss the opportunity to dine at Roka Akor. In overview, we have never experienced anything but perfection at this establishment with respect to both the exceptional food and excellent service - a perfect and incomparable (Japanese) meal each and every time.... The menu consists of so many wonderful... More
