First off, the menu is diverse and has an ample selection. It is not inedible, but also does not stand out. Maybe I have been spoiled by seafood from the northwest, which is why I have scaled my expectations down accordingly in AZ, but Roka Akor does not have anything over any other local sushi place I have been.

If you look carefully at other reviews, "diners" rave about ambience and waitstaff, and call the food average. We take advantage of AZ Restaurant Week menus for the FOOD, which was, at best mediocre, and unlike the Chicago fare our foodie son raves about. The three course menu offered options which were MINUTE and could easily have been prepared as... More

My wife and I enjoyed the most amazing dinner at Roka Akor. We each ordered the Omakse, which is about a 17 course dinner, which covered the broad range of foods the are prepared by the master chefs here. We took our time, savoring each bite and sipping on Sake and green tea. We arrived early at 6 PM and... More

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
