A lovely spacious restaurant. Lots of free parking. I had the lamb cutlets -- outstanding. My husband reported that the Saigon chicken was very good as well. The best item was the Brussels sprouts -- my husband hates Brussels sprouts but pronounced these very good -- definitely worth a try.

We let our server do the picking for appetizers and main courses and were not disappointed. After a few questions about our likes and dislikes, she brought something for everyone to enjoy. The tempura was great, as were the scallops and prawn apps. The cod was a crowd pleaser and the ny strip was fabulous - all sliced beautifully for... More

I finally got to mark this one off of my wish list! The food was fantastic!! But it does not come cheap. This is definitely, for us, a special occasion restaurant only. And it even feels that way when you walk in. The restaurant is simply beautiful, the service is top-notch. If you don't mind putting down a little cash,... More

My wife and I love sushi and on our last evening in AZ decided to spend the evening at Roka Akor. I seriously don't understand some of the negative comments in the other reviews. Our dinner was phenomenal and the service was some of the best I've ever received while dining out. Is this place pricy? Yes, yes it is.... More

Shusi is my wife's favorite food so took her there the other day. Wonderful decor, good parking, easy access and friendly, helpful staff. Menu was explained to us in detail to help us select our meal. This restaurant covers the range from sushi to beef so all preferences will be met. I agree with another review it is pricey. However...

Went here at the recommendation of a friend who swears by the Chicago location. The food was okay, but for the price wasn't great. If I has spent half as much I might bump it a star, but I'd say everything was just okay. A friend of mine had the tasting menu and he really enjoyed it, so maybe that... More

My wife and I are on vacation in Arizona so this review represents a single dinner at Roka Akor in Scottsdale. After reading the rave reviews, some claiming that Roka Akor was among the best sushi restaurants in the USA, we had to try it out. For this visit, we decided to try a wide variety of dishes off their... More
