Impromptu visit as we were in the vicinity. Great food - especially the broccoli.
We loved Rok Shoreditch for the most delicious food. Since there were 4 of us we tried everything on the menu. The wines we had were interesting and complimented the food. Do not be put off by the simple exterior and wooden tables and chairs - you will miss out if ypu are.
Fantastic as always! Menu is simple, food is amazing, staff are the best
Really disappointing, especially considering the price.
Doesn't live up to its billing whatsoever; food is far from the innovative experience the menu suggests, service is overbearing bordering on intrusive, and the atmosphere is non-existent even on a Saturday night. The only compliments I can honestly give Rok is that the pigeon, although overcooked, was good quality meat.
Really liked the food, very tasty but slightly on the pricey side.
Outstanding food! As a Finn I was pleased to see such lovely Nordic flavours and combinations. It was a lovely birthday treat for my partner, not too noisy and quite cosy.
All the dishes were good size - we couldn't finish all the recommended amounts of food (starter, side and main)! We had the scallop starters, duck breast with lingonberry, lamb chop with mint yoghurt, sweet potato with sauerkraut creme fraiche and blackened cabbage with macadamias and Swedish cheese. The last two listed sides were incredibly tasty and flavours like I never had before. The food was timed perfectly and meats cooked spot on. The Sicilian white wine was heavenly. Our bill with the starters, mains, sides, a portion of pickles, two drinks each plus service charged was around £87 and felt like good value.
Service was a bit hit and miss as was the ambience - sitting at a very small table on uncomfortable stools next to the toilet entrance felt a bit interruptive at times. We had one lovely waiter and one who seemed a little bit offish, perhaps having a bad day?
All in all superb food, timely service and good for an occasion.
The food was expensive for a restaurant in the ££ category. £6 got you half a sweet potato and £16 got you a duck breast. I made the mistake of not looking at the menu before booking and was taken by surprise.
However, the quality of the food was exceptional, hence overall positive ratings. I loved the way they combined sweet, salty and acidic flavours. It definitely earned its Fit For Foodies badge.
Excellent service and food, was willing to bring out a starter that wasn't on the menu after I asked for it.
Attentive and knowledgeable chap served some delicious and beautifully presented food!
Very nice and varied menu with some interesting option. Friendly and helpful service and a good wine list.
Been to Rok before, the food was nice not great. The pickles and starter excellent. The main meat and fish excellent, side dishes and sauces mmh yeah right did not work. Don't know what was going on. Veg was like a bad forest of pine.
The food was by far the best of this restaurant. Sadly the service wasn't as good as I expected from a fine restaurant; I specified in my reservation that it was a special occasion with my girlfriend. We got seated next to a group of three loud men, who were talking and telling jokes to each other for almost all our stay... It was extremely annoying. This didn't ruin our dinner, but obviously, I won't come again or recommend this restaurant. There are many places where you can get great food these days.
Friendly service, knowledgeable without going over the top on too much detail and also helpful when we needed to order gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian options.
The food was all delicious - the smoky charcoal roasted lamb was a highlight, as was the blackened cabbage. Good wine too, maybe just would've liked comfier chairs :)
Small venue, not the most comfortable but the food more than makes up for this
Very nice evening.
Delicious food and friendly staff
£75 for 2people having starter/main/side and 1 drink - so mid range price bracket
Lovely food. Blown away by the velvety seasonal Skrei (Norwegian cod) with cavolo nero. Also received great service. Seats and furnishing was a bit basic but it's part of the charm :)
Amazing food and friendly service
Very good food menu and even better food quality. Abit on the expensive side, but surely worth a nice dinner.
A small pearl in the hearth of Shoreditch. Very nice food. Good ambient and service. Really recommended.
It's sometimes a bit of a gamble going somewhere with a limited menu, but it manages to pack quite a bit of variety into a 4-4-2 option setup and the food itself was absolutely delicious. Good cocktails too.
Superb food, great service. Rok is a gem of a place who don’t over complicate anything and concentrate on their menu and service. Fresh ingredients cooked perfectly.
Anazing service, delicious food at a perfect price. Would highly recommend and cant wait to go back
Tables are small, space was cold, food amazing but portions too small, cool interior design though on the bar.
One of the best lunches I've had in a while. Delicious food with excellent service. Will be coming back again soon.
Food was amazing and the majority of the staff were absolutely lovely. We hadn’t complained that our mains were taking a long time to arrive but one of the waiters apologised anyway and we were given 2 free sides. We had a few drinks that were lovely and as I’ve said the food was outstanding, the only issues we had were that the margarita tasted like pure ethanol and was undrinkable and one of the waitresses we found to be quite unprofessional. A woman with orange-pinkish hair and circle tattoos on her back was rude about our northern accents when taking our order and she kept grabbing one of our parties shoulders and pushing herself up against him every time she walked past even though there was room behind him to walk through. This made him feel very uncomfortable when she was around. All the other staff were lovely, professional and friendly and we had a good time regardless of the above.
Second time I've eaten here and been excellent both times. Interesting menu. Pickles and the blackened cabbage are a must.
Really unusual flavours. Fantastically enticing menu. Lovely atmosphere!
Been going since it opened and Rok is still very good and fun and good value with welcoming, friendly service.
Amazing food! Absolute value for money, and the food was cooked to perfection. Unfortunately, the service was quite poor and below average. The waitors/waitresses didn't seem very bothered and were not attentive at all, even though it wasn't very busy. If you can see beside that, I definitely recommend this place - the chef was incredible!
Restaurant was cold making it impossible to enjoy the evening . I had venison which was chewy. The table wasn’t big enough to accommodate the dishes. When you include side dishes it is overpriced. Not worth the effort of traveling there. Big trendy overrated disappointment
If you love meat or seafood but want something a bit different this is the place! Amazing mussels with a savoury twist to start and the most beautiful rare venison. Lingonberries > cranberry sauce!
Excellent Food, the taste is excellent, there's nothing to complain about!
but really unfriendly staff!
Third trip to Rok Smokehouse in a year. Never disappoints. Food is just lovely and the ambience is casual, relaxed and friendly. We come from the complete other side of London, and it's always very worth the trip. Cocktails are highlight. The duck is also amazing - but actually most of the food is brilliantly cooked. Puddings perhaps a bit weak in comparison to the rest of the menu.
fantastic unique food experience, tastes unlike anything else. highly recommended!
Awesome food, great drinks, lovely staff. The place was pretty empty because we went early. Only snag : the door didn't close well and a cold breeze would sweep the room regularly
We thought we would try somewhere new. At first, when we walked in, the staff seemed nice enough, but their friendliness declined as the evening wore on. The waitress made some recommendations that were, frankly, terrible. The wine was barely drinkable, the venison was way over cooked - it was grey, not pink as it should be,. Similarly, the duck was overcooked and lukewarm. The only highlight were the sweet potatoes. When we presented the AMEX card, the same waitress snapped back rudely - “we don’t take AMEX”! overall, a big disappointment and at £50 per head, it was definitely not good value!
Interesting flavour combinations. We were happy with each course we ordered between the three of us. Fantastic pickles. Will definitely return.
First time here and the food was excellent. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the restaurants ethos, the menu and of the prosecco we had. The Scandinavian influences were great throughout and would highly recommend the pickled cucumber in gin. My main was the Hake poached in butter in a seafood miso broth. It was the best tasting white fish I’ve ever had! Cooked perfectly. An unassuming hidden gem where the food speaks for itself. Highly recommended!
Great food. If you are a food buff, this is worth checking out as intriguing flavours delivered in an unpretentious setting.. I would expect to hear more about this place in future..!
