An architecturally and esthetically pleasing Japanese restaurant located on the fringes of Scottsdale, we patronized this fine venue to round off attendance at a medical convention in Phoenix. I was not disappointed with this very well-spoken of place whose reputation precedes it in no uncertain terms! The food choices were quintessentially delectable, for want of adequate superlatives, with the sashimi... More

Roka Akor is a very fine Sushi Restaurant located in North Scottsdale, AZ. It lives up to it's name in every manner and means possible. The Sushi is excellent, although pricey with HMO servings a bit undersized for the cost. Having said that the atmosphere and service are first class, bring you AMEX and receive well earned points

OMG. What a fantastic restaurant. The sushi was excellent as well as all the small plates that we sampled during the meal. The service lived up to the meal as they say. We're looking forward to returning in the near future. We had no complaints.

I traveled to Scottsdale recently. My travel partner was the expert on local dining, and picked this location for us. He isn't really a fan of Japanese, but he knows how to research a restaurant. I wasn't disappointed, and it ended up being a memorable meal. I kept to my "usual" Japanese habit of salmon sashimi and two rolls. I... More

We sat at the bar for happy hour, and were served very well by the bar tender mostly. We decided to just get small plates to share, and didn't bother with any entrees. All of the dishes with fish were delicious, some of the fried veggies (we had tempura sweet corn and a serrano pepper dish) weren't amazing, but still... More

I am not much for the club scene especially on New years where you pay minimum $100 to get in and if you are lucky you get a cheap glass of champagne (likely sparkling wine). With Roka Akor on New Years yes it was $160 per person for set menu but it was 6 amazing courses with extras in between... More

Bar-tender Colin provided service beyond expectations at the bar! Best service and best sushi! Best sushi/ sashimi in town. The bar-dining experience is second to none. Food is amazing. Fresh, cold, hot, and expected. Time and time again... after 15 visits, stellar food & beverage service each time. Enjoy!
