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.

Food was great. Service was kind of slow. Assuming under staffed like everywhere else.
Excellent as usual! I do feel that they may be a little under staffed. We had a great waiter, but he had a lot of tables to cover so service was slightly slow.
Food was outstanding. We ordered the decadent chefs tasting menu and it never disappoints. Service was lacking however they were extremely busy for a Wednesday night and it was obvious that our server was doing the absolute best that could be managed so not to disappointed.
Nice place. Great customer service
Awesome lunch experience! Food was great and server was helpful. Will definitely dine here again
Delicious! Can’t wait to go back!
Very busy place. Service and food recommendations from our waiter were superb!!!!
The food was absolutely amazing as well as the staff. Very courteous and professional. Definitely worth the money
Great food and service!
Great experience, as always. Their weekday lunch had a quiet atmosphere, which was perfect for my needs.
This is a great spot to relax and enjoy great cuisine in a romantic atmosphere.
Service was awful and the restaurant wasn't busy at all
Outstanding food and service.
Everyone is so attentive and friendly.
Amazing meal. Can’t have enough Ube!!
Vegan options: miso soup (had a fishy taste), tempura (very heavy, but very good), Japanese mushroom hot pot (amazing, especially with the shaved black truffle), sorbet (which the manager graciously provided on the house!)
Their outdoor heating turned off halfway through our meal, so it was a bit chilly, but the overall ambiance was definitely great!
Excellent food and service. Great vibe in the restaurant.
First time dining here! The food was amazing - from the beet salad all the way to the molten lava cake dessert. Great wine list and attentive staff. My only complaint is that the music was VERY loud and with the staff still masked (yeah!!) it was difficult to hear them.
We loved everything. We will definitely be back.
Incredible food! The miso black cod and beef tatake were very special dishes. Great spot for a date night. We will be back!
We have not been out to eat since the pandemic started. This was a nice step back into normal life. The food was great, the service impeccable and the cocktails delicious. The tables were spaced apart nicely and the restaurant staff were all masked. We had such a nice meal. Definitely coming back.
Very good food, just waiting for a food to long. Overall I'll recommended
Dinner was phenomenal! We had the black cod, king crab and the sweet potatoes. Everything was so delicious. Our server Nick was the absolute best. He made our dining experience that much more enjoyable. We can’t wait to go back!
Amazing food! Amazing drinks! I love coming here.
Excellent food, amazing service and incredible attention to detail. They made our anniversary lunch very special. Do not expect a quick bite. Take your time and savor the experience they provide.
This was our first dining experience since the pandemic started. We were outside, and we really couldn’t ask for more. Our server was great, food was great, and the accommodations were phenomenal. We’ll be back again in the future.
Our server made the whole experience even better. He was very knowledgeable and personable
Everything we ordered was delicious with great presentation. The service was good too. I highly recommend it.
Unfortunately food was bland and overpriced for the quality. Drinks were good, food not so much.
Out celebrating a birthday, we were greeted by Matthew with champagne for our celebration, very classy. Very nice explanation and guidance with the menu. Top-notch food, qualityBeyond expectations. We had a superb, relaxing, fun time. Highly recommended!
The food was really excellent. We loved the Brussels sprouts and the pork belly with pickled radishes, and the entrees were excellent too.
The food was amazing! If you are visiting the Oakbrook location ask for David, he provided exceptional service.
Loved it we took our friends from Ohio to try it . David our server was very polite and helpful. Thank you for good experience .
Great server, amazing presentation and relishes food
Unreal - I know this is a sushi place but the meat was unreal
My boyfriend and I went to Roka Akor for his birthday and it was nothing short of excellent. The service we received was fantastic. Our server was able to give a detailed explanation of every item, and even threw in some Japanese history facts which was cool. The food was very good - we got the calamari, wagyu potstickers, hamachi nigiri, tuna sashimi, and pork ribs.
Great food and service!
Amazing restaurant went for the first and will definitely return. Everything was Fantastic..
We were celebrating my daughter’s graduation. The service was excellent! We never had to wait for food or drink very long. The server was helpful in choosing entrees. She also informed us of the different vegetarian options. Everything was well presented and delicious!
