Roka Akor - Oak Brook
Roka Akor’s principle Robata Japanese cuisine is prepared on a twelve-foot robata grill that uses mesquite charcoal and almond wood with flames that can raise temperatures up to 1,900 degrees. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. In alignment with the restaurant’s name, Roka Akor’s design features a centrally located robata grill that provides the heart of the visual experience, surrounded by rich wood décor and sleek lighting. Guests are encouraged to speak with the chefs about the food to create an interactive and engaging dining experience.

Outstanding restaurant. Great atmosphere and incredible food. Sashimi and rolls were awesome and the Snake River Filet with bone marrow and truffle butter was simply amazing. Absolutely a new favorite of ours!
would not suggest out Waiter came outside to get a tip which was very weird
Amazing service and food!
Our server Lee made our Date night very enjoyable. His mastery of each of the items, energetic description was truly impressive.
The next time my beautiful Bride and I visit your restaurant we will request Lee as our server.
The lamb chops were amazing!
The wagyu was amazing! My fiancé really enjoyed her steak and sushi as well. Highly recommend.
When we actually got our food it was good, but the service was horrible - 1.5 hours to get main course.
Our server Tim was super informative and knew the menu like he was the chef. The food was excellent and the tasting menu was very fulfilling. We will deff be back!
Roka is our favorite restaurant. The food is cooked to perfection. Always rare treats are to be found. Our waiter is always attentive and enthusiatically fun.
Always great! I recommend a 3oz Waygu to share (up to 3 people). It’s so rich, so delicious, it’s a special treat for everyone.
I love bringing people to this location! The food is top notch and the ambience is casual and comfortable! One of my all-time lunch favorite restaurants.
Awesome food and service!
Food was good
Very nice presentation
The food here is fantastic. The best dining experience that we have ever had. The freshness of the fish was outstanding. Our hostess, Brie, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. She guided us along and gave us information on the subtle flavors of each course. We highly recommend Roka Akor.
Excellent service!!!! Everything was so delicious and all of the stuff was extremely attentive!!! We’ll definitely return sometime soon!!!!!! 😄
The food was simply amazing! However, our server was awful, very inattentive. When I asked for Sake, he brought the most expensive bottle. I thought $40 for five ounces of Sake was ridiculous. Our server never came to check on us after our meal was delivered. It felt like we were a terrible inconvenience for him. We had to ask another person for the check. Server just never bothered with us and since it was my birthday and we were celebrating, it took the shine off my special day.
Outstanding service and phenomenal food. The chef's tasting menu was superb. We will be back!
Very high quality food. Unfortunately its priced accordingly, but still well worth it
Such a great new experience. Definitely recommend
Front desk ladies should have better customer service skills.
Everything we ordered was fabulous!
Started with the Beef Tataki (ended up ordering a second because it was so delicious) and Yellowtail Sashimi. Then had Tuna Sashimi and Snake River Farms American Wagyu Sirloin with Bone Marrow, Truffle Aioli. Finished with a dessert sampler.
We will definitely be back to sample more of Roka's cuisine!
The seating was prompt, the food was good, the ambience was a bit noisy. The menu was not exhaustive and the omakase menu option was not very clear. The attentive service deteriorated a bit as the place grew more crowded.
The mushroom pot dish was saltier than expected. Maybe offer a low salt option?
We had a great business dinner.
Our Server was wonderful
My favorite sushi place
Tim and Kelsey are always amazing!!!
I've only been to Roka Akor once before years ago in the city, so I was happy to know that there was one in the western suburbs. We made reservations on Open Table, since its was a Friday night. Upon arrival we were greeted by a beautifully dressed hostess who helped us choose a table in the outdoor patio. Passing though the restaurant, multiple staff continued to greet us "Welcome in!" The overall ambiance beams with an upscale feel. Our server attended our table soon after we were seated. We decided to order a few drinks and a spread of small plates to share, for a lighter meal. We had the Japanese fried chicken, Hamachi roll, fried squid, Wagyu beef and kimchi dumplings, diver sea scallops, and a bowl of edamame. All were absolutely delicious. The spicy sauce paired with the fried squid and the chicken was very tasty. Hamachi roll was extremely fresh, melted in my mouth. The sea scallops were cooked to perfection and were presented very warm. My absolute favorite though were the Wagyu beef and kimchi dumplings. Lots of attention to detail with flavor pairings and presentation. The manager even visited our table to see if we were happy. Overall a beautiful experience and will definitely be back again. I highly recommend!
Wonderful place, there's not a doubt in my mind we will be back. You get what you pay for, as they say!
The food was terrible. cold, salty and sub par to say the least. Someone needs to go to the kitchen and steal the salt shaker. My Rib eye steak was cold and salty and definitely not worth the 40 dollars. I should’ve got paid to go there instead of me paying them.
Great food and amazing service. We would definitely go back!
Incredibly delicious all around, especially the Wagyu. Not something we could afford to eat every day, but truly an experience to remember.
Very tasty and pretty food. Service a lil slow probably due to Covid19 situation .
Food was delicious and fresh! I can’t wait to go back!
Our meal was outstanding - went to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and wanted to do something special for him (other than going to a steakhouse). We did the tasting menu and it was absolutely perfect - didn’t have to decide on the food, everything was delicious, courses were perfectly prepared & timed out, and we got to try a solid portion of the menu. Our server was knowledgeable, funny, attentive (I wish I remembered his name - I would request him again!) If you are looking for upscale, authentic Japanese in the suburbs, definitely try this spot. Highly recommend!
Love Roka!!! Every time I go the food and service are consistently on point. I special ordered a grilled veggie roll and it was amazing. We loved the beet salad, edamame and beef appetizers. Cocktails are amazing. Always one of my favorites!!
Excellent choice! Best birthday dinner that I've had in a while!
The food was amazing. The staff were very efficient & friendly. Our server went above and beyond to make sure our party of 14 always had what we asked for or needed.
