ROKA Charlotte Street & Shochu Lounge
I love this place! Of all the restaurants I’ve visited all over the world this is my overall favourite. A great allrounder. Be sure to give it a visit, especially if you love Japanese fusion food.
Absolutely fantastic! We were looked after by a brilliant man called Leboy (almost certainly not the correct spelling). He made our meal magical and gave great advice on the menu. Can’t wait to go back.
Awesome food and service
My husband and I ordered the 15 year anniversary taster menu and we weren’t disappointed. We got to try dishes we never would have ordered and every course was wonderful!
Overall we had a lovely evening and we will definitely go back soon!
Very nice restaurant with greatfood but a bit show off and a bit pricy for (certain) very small portions (eg. scallop skewer contains one scallop only...)
Food and service was great, recommend the tasting menu, a must for sushi lovers!
Great design and architecture.
Very friendly, helpful and professional staff.
Very clean and inviting look.
Top floor looks a little “clinical” and cold but downstairs is very warm and romantic.
Service is quick, friendly and always with a smile.
Food was and drinks range is varied and should allow for everyone’s taste.
Tables are rather tight to get into and out off.
Amazing staff that create a great evening from the beginning, food was fantastic and the decor is stunning. Definitely coming back soon
Always great fun
Intimate setting, cherry blossoms were beautiful, food was amazing and excellent service.
Roka is one of favourite places in London. The food is always excellent with top quality, fresh ingredients and delicious, creative flavours. The service is efficient and friendly. It has a buzzy atmosphere.
Food was absolutely amazing & service was incredible!
It was alright. But nothing to write home about. Better Sushi elsewhere (including other ROKA's).
Fantastic food, great location and enjoyable ambiance. We had the taster menu with the supplemental wagyu beef and everything was delicious. I have to say, I thoroughly recommend the supplemental! Their wine selection is brilliant. The desert was a combination of exotic fruit with sweets that was just excellent. The meal is well balanced, tastes were all unique and presentation was very nice. Makes you feel you are having a special meal. They are very good at catering to allergies and food restrictions substituting dishes for delicious alternatives. It was my wife and my birthday celebration and the nice touch of a champagne glass was much appreciated. When you finish a meal like this you ask yourself what could have been better ... the answer is very little, so whatever comes next is just purely constructive and by no means intended as a criticism ... at some points the flow of information between waiters required some improvement, this resulted in a dish being brought to us and then taken away and then brought to us again ... when a meal is almost flawless you notice these things!
Amazing service from beginning to the end. I was slightly early and was shown the bar downstairs, the bar man was friendly and kept me company as my date was late.
I’m happy I chose Roka Charlotte street for our first date. The ambience was perfect and our server (Chinese lady with short hair was superb in animating our date and her knowledge and recommendations were greatly appreciated)
Thank you Roka Team.
Always the place! Been here numerous times. The team has changed though but the food was good. The sake list was better this round, highly recommend. The buzz still there but the booking system should be more flexible.
We have been for the second time and think the food is exceptionally good.
Premiym Tasting menu was amazing. The full table was pleased. We will certainly come back. The semi-fatty tuna melted like butter in my mouth. The cod & crab dumplings were delicious, as was the lamb and the scallops. The desert platter had something for everyone. THANKS.
Fab. Food is amazing
Never fails to impress. Their lamb chops are phenomenal. It’s pricy but worth it. You get what you pay for in my view.
Great food and great service!
My wife and I were looking forward to a taster menu. Our seating options were on a two seat table on the main thoroughfare or at the bar where Chef Mickey Mouse and his entourage yell at the top of their voice whenever there is an order of broccoli or something more costly.
The food looked and smelt awesome, but the concept is great for 10 year olds who are happy to play with their phones and not talk with anybody else at their table.
Horses for courses... and even if there were horses there, you couldn't hear them.
I always like the restaurant.Plain but sophisticated deco,good food,lovely staff
Amazing food. Great service. Good vibe to the restaurant. Pricey but worth it.
Great food, with attentive service. We really enjoyed our time there.
Great food premium tasting menu was amazing
Amazing food and fantastic service, very buzzy atmosphere (it was Friday night) so it was rather noisy, tables are quite close together, I'd go again early in the week when it might be a bit quieter.
Good. Service not quite as attentive as previously
Always great. The food is consistently good and the ambience is wonderful. Management is great and accommodating. I find the table service somewhat condescending at time. I can understand them trying to be helpful but when you've been going there longer than they have worked there, it seems that their lack of knowledge can be testing. Small issue for such a great restaurant.
As always, we had a great time at ROKA Charlotte Street. Our server, Peter, was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. Cheers!
We were excited about having the Vegan set menu only to find it is not currently being offered. We ate from the À la cart menu and our hope is that they bring back a Vegan set menu.
Nice place, good food and good atmosphere
Recommend this place
Excellent sake. Over seasoned meat and grilled salmon, too salty and too sweet. Fresh fish and seafood. Good ambient and excellent service.
It was a relaxed and totally enjoyable occasion.
Great restaurant / venue for a special occassion, food and service is fantastic.
I booked this restaurant for my friend’s birthday and unfortunately I was quite underwhelmed by the experience. I found the servers to be extremely attentive and not in a good way. I wasn’t sure if they wanted to rush us out or what but it got to the point where it was uncomfortable, and this was from the very beginning. To her credit she did apologise and offered us a drinks tasting sample in the bar downstairs. As for the food although it was good, the portions were not adequate for a sharing dining experience. I left still hungry and I felt that we paid quite a lot for quite small portions. I would have preferred an a la carte option. I will not come back here again I’m afraid. Don’t come here if you are hungry.
Big disappointment , was there a few years ago and loved it so we were looking forward our meal!
The one pot meal “rice” was so gooey, like gelatin, the broccoli was horrible.
The makis were fresh and tasty.
We were helped by so many different people, could barely have a conversation!
I would not recommend this restaurant !
Great food and service was 5*. Was s great way to end the day shopping !!
We took our 2yr old there , who in truth was quite badly behaved , but the staff were brilliant.
Constantly picking up whatever he threw on the floor, which in the case of the Wagyu beef was hard to watch.
They even washed his little cutlery set before we left !
The adults, better behaved I might add, had a superb lunch.
Still one off my favourite restaurants and has been for the last 10 years.
Great restaurant, can be noisy inside. Excellent service & food. Presentation & slelctoon of cuisine was brilliant. Bar seating around the chefs is worth doing, but make sure you’re not by the door! We sat the other side and it was much better.
