We had the absolute BEST soup dumplings and a nice light, delicious chicken fried rice! I added a side of spinach for color and leafy green, also tasty. Quick, friendly service, fair pricing

Excellent take away food. Huge portions enough for supper for two nights, almost better the next evening. Popcorn chicken and the fried rice a favourite.

I've dropped in here for quick meals through- out this year and the food's been good. Last night though, I wanted to take some dinner to friends . The meal we unpacked and ate was massively disappointing- to a point it was unrecognizable as ROC...More

If you're a fan of these tasty little treats, then ROC is the place for you. They serve amazing Taiwanese style soup dumplings for a reasonable price. The rest of their menu is awesome too. I strongly recommend the garlic crab fried rice and some...More
