Japanese
Roka Akor brings an innovative combination of contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine and stunning design to six locations across the U.S., including Scottsdale, San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Skokie, and Oak Brook, IL.
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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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!
