Amazing sashimi and more

Loved Roka Akor. The decor is soothing and hip. The servers are helpful and friendly. The food is amazing. We ordered the deluxe sashimi for two, which had a great variety of fish, all of which were stellar! Really great sake and sochu selection. The steakhouse part of the menu looked... read more

I love Roka Akor ! It is a great place for a single to sit at the bar for Happy Hour. Not a pick up joint! Sometimes I go early and have enough snacks to complete dinner. My two favorites are the Odon Noodles and the Kimchee Dumplings. The wine list is quite extensive, not so by much by the... More

We had a work team dinner at Roka Akor Steak and Sushi and although I was initially disappointed that we couldnt get the private dining room because they were already booked, we ended up having a wonderful meal in the main dining room. Everything we ordered from the appetizers to the entrees to desserts were spectacular. I especially liked the... More

When we ordered some food that is commonly found in true and pure Japanese restaurants the server seemed like he forgot how to speak English and stared at us like we were a shiney object . Rick the manager was summoned and he knew exactly what we were looking for and took over. This is a value for this restaurant... More

If you are willing to pay the price for good sushi/sashimi, this is the place. The sashimi was top notch. So was the unagi and makis we had. It is pricey though. Be prepared to drop some dough in this place.

Expensive Japanese food with some of the best Tuna sashimi that I've ever had; I also had the vegetable tempura which was good but I felt that the batter was a little bit too thick and it would have been better if the vegetables had been cut into smaller pieces. My colleagues had the crispy fried squid which was good... More

There are over 1000 restaurants in Scottsdale and I have not tried them all, but Roka Akor was my favorite meal. It might have been one of the best meals I have ever had. This is an upscale sushi, Japanese grill and sake joint. Everything was elevated and we chose many of the specialties. We also had a rocking blood... More

From the moment you walk up to ROKA AKOR Scottsdale, you know you're in for something special! Two large fire urns burn bright flanking the entrance ( great photo opp.) The bar area off to the right is visually stimulating, a cool vibe and good music, the main dining room and Robata Grill/Sushi Bar are across from the bar, there's...

I went solo and totally enjoyed the small plates. Everything was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. They had an expansive sushi bar, which I would have indulged in if I had a larger stomach. I highly recommend this place.
