While the food was tasty, it was very overpriced. If I am going to pay that kind of money, I don't expect to walk out unsatisfied and for the amount of food you received it just wasn't worth the money.

We had the best end-of-year holiday lunch at Roka Akor. Festive ambiance, amazing service and - as usual, delicious food! We noshed on great appetizers then feasted on a platter of sushi. Our lunch ended well with sweet desserts! Thank you 👍🏻

Roka Akor was an excellent experience...the servers and bussers were almost tripping over themselves to clear plates and etc. (almost too much) The food was great as was the atmosphere. The food can get quite pricey if you don't mind what you order!

Enjoyed the food-- very well prepared with fresh ingredients and delicious flavors. Found the ambiance lacking, slightly cold, and the wait staff was hard to find. Probably wouldn't go back.More

We were really impressed with the service and food! The steak was so tender and served cubed on a sushi platter. We loved the different play on mainstream entrees. We will be back!
