Treat yourself, and learn something, about cooking method!!

Would recommend Roka Akor, (not for kids), don't ruin it by bringing yours, people seem to do that everywhere!! A place to be appreciated, staff very knowledgeable, and very self motivated to perform, also a rarity these days. From the moment of trying to make a decision to stay and try the place... read more

Visited Roka Akor with family who waxed lyrical about the food and I was not disappointed. Superb quality all round, great selection of beers and some of the freshest Sushi i have tried. Will be returning in October to AZ and you can rest assured I will be visiting again. Highly recommended.

I can't believe what a Great Happy Hour this is and sooooo close to our house!!! Don't be fooled by the parking in the back of the building. It always looks like no one is here and the place is dead. When you enter in the stunning front entrance you will find that this place is hopping!!!! The bar is... More

Went with family to this Japanese inspired modern decor dining experience. We started with a lovely steamed edamame with sea salt appetizer. My husband ordered the beef filet which was cooked perfectly and could be cut with a fork. The chili dipping sauce for the steak enhanced the flavor while still being light. I ordered the miso black cod which... More

Went for dinner with 2 of my friends, pleasantly surprised with the clean and modern interior design. Our server was super friendly and attentive, but most of all the food was amazing! We ordered the rock shrimp and brussels sprouts as appetizers which I highly recommend.

Awfully cooked prime steak filet with bitterness and completely burned bottom to total black about 1/8 inch. Not for human.

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 excellent as well but we did not get anything.... 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
