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

We visited during Spring Training and found Roka Akor a wonderful distraction from baseball. + the cocktail menu was inspired and distinct. + The food was similarly unique in presentation, taste, and variety. Plus quite fresh. + while listed as a romantic spot, which it is, the ambiance and set-up allowed it to be family and kid-friendly; very tricky to... More

Loved this place! If you like sushi, this place is a 'no brainer'. While it is a little on the pricier side, I believe that you get what you pay for. So, bring your wallet but plan on having a great meal in a great restaurant!

We love Roka Akor and come here often. The food is the highest quality and always fresh and presented beautifully. You can sit in the bar area, at the sushi bar, or in the restaurant. Each will give you a different but outstanding experience. The service is amazing and staff are extremely well-trained. It is an experience to sit at... More

So, let me preface this review by 1st stating that the staff at Roka Akor is out of this world. The way this restaurant operates is absolutely incredible to observe, and all of the credit for that clearly should go to their talented team -- we were treated like absolute royalty from start to finish, and there is something to...

I love this place! Even though it is a bit on the pricey side, everything about it is well worth it. The staff is friendly and not pretentious, the decor is beautiful and the open kitchen is fun to watch. Just go and bite the bullet and have the omakase (the I'll leave it to you menu). The food is... More

The Sunka Bay salmon was incredible, as were all the veggie sides. And everything was artfully presented. Try the mushroom hot pot and the sashimi sampler, too.

It's a must - delicious! One of the best dishes I have had. Also enjoyed the butterfly-asparagus, brussels sprouts, hamachi with serrano peppers dishes. The dessert, warm chocolate cake with toffee, was also good. Best meal we had in our short stay in Scottsdale.
