Very pretty inside this restaurant. Server was excellent. Wagu dumplings are amazing. Rolls are inventive and yummy. Things are spicy so watch out. Very good!

We ordered so many things. Everything was delish! Not a bad flavor anywhere. The atmosphere here is to die for. Go Roka!

The food here is pretty amazing. They have items that are a slight twist to your typical Japanese restaurant fare. Everything tasted great. The sushi came in something that reminded me of a parade float or a something from an opera set--very dramatic.
The decor is modern, but warm and the staff was very friendly. Somewhere to go to celebrate something special or a business dinner--or just because you want a fun dining experience.

This was a last-minute decision and I'm glad we did it. Had a reservation I believe on the website set right down made it waters and menus were given. After reviewing the menu we want the chefs choice this was very good diverse very tasty and actually I would say well worth the money. There are five of us with ample selection the fish selection that was chosen was very good the redmeat was very good as well if you get a chance I would highly recommend you try this place out.

The food was good quality and the menu offered a good representation of the different types of Japanese food. The service was fair, the restaurant was a hot spot which put a lot of effort into the image and presentation. The food was moderate value for money, I feel we paid more for the image that the quality of the food.
