ROKA dessert platter
steamed edamame with sea salt
asparagus with sweet soy and sesame
Roka used to be such a favourite. We came to have a special occasion yesterday and maybe because of previous bookings or high expectations we were just a bit disappointed. The food was good, sometimes excellent. But it used to be all excellent. The service was ok but not stellar. The sommelier was best. But the others a bit inattentive. One spilled soya on my daughters plate and beyond and didn’t clean up. We were out of tap water for at least half the meal with no one noticing. It just felt a bit tired. Compared to Hakkasan where we ate a few weeks ago it was miles apart. For this price tag (premium tasting menu) we were expecting more. Unsure if we’ll come back, sadly.
Social distance tables, good pacing of the dishes. Grilled scallop is good
All good, as usual. Despite the corona restrictions, the restaurant remains welcoming and the service, friendly and efficient.
The food and service were excellent. The reception staff are unwelcoming and more concerned about how fast you need to depart the restaurant.
This is a top top restaurant let down by the greeting on arrival. We spent around £160 per head. Spending that sort of money you would like like to think the reception staff valued you more.
Fab as ever
We love this restaurant and go here regularly, definitely worth a visit
We visited Roka to celebrate our daughter’s birthday. The food was outstanding as was the service. We were looked after so well and felt very safe in these difficult times. Amazing food and amazing evening- highly recommend
Whilst the special occasion wasn’t acknowledged the service was very good and food excellent.
Wife’s birthday so went for the premium tasting menu.
Not cheap but lots of food for the money and top top quality ingredients. Course after course of mind blowing tastes and textures. Broccoli dish should be exchanged for the asparagus dish on the normal tasting menu which is far superior in my view. Proper Wagu obviously top notch but it was wasted on me compared to the incredible miso black cod better than anywhere I’ve had (including Nobu).
Just stunning. Everything else was a complete delight.
Staff are super friendly, informative and helpful.
Tables and counter seats are socially distanced.
It’s super clean, super efficient and just super to spend a long long lunch.
Added bonus was watching our neighbour, the mighty England Forward James Haskell power through a tasting menu for two on his own.
Great day out. Thank you again Roka.
Wonderful food and service as always. All staff wore masks as required but not always the guests when walking around. Also there was no attempt to ensure distancing when guests entered the restaurant. This really needs to be liked at!
Food was excellent however service was slow.
They also couldn’t find our reservation at front desk and weren’t very accommodating at the beginning.
Food was absolutely beautiful as always! Staff were friendly as usual too!
A very pleasant evening. The staff couldn’t have been better, attentive at the right time but not over insistent or in your face. Social distancing worked well in the confines of a busy restaurant. Food up to scratch as usual. And when we wanted another drink after the meal there was no problem finding us a table outside under a heater. All in all a fine time was had by both of us.
On arrival we were shown safely to our table with our hand sanitiser in place. The servers all had face masks & everything was very clean & we all felt very safe whilst ordering, receiving & eating the delicious food. The drinks service was equally as good & overall we had an excellent meal.
Fantastic food and great surroundings. Sashimi amazing and highly recommend the aubergine dish
Waiter was very attentive and the food was great
Food and service was incredible. The experience was faultless.
Absolutely delicious Food. Great service. With a lovely vibe.
Very high quality ingredients, expertly presented and prepared. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great service, went for a 30th birthday and they arranged for a dessert platter to celebrate which was amazing !
A special shout out to Christine who always makes Roka feel like a home from home for us.
Sushi was phenomenal, downstairs looked like a nicer atmosphere, upstairs was fairly plain but very busy. Probably needed more servers for the amount of guests. Overall enjoyed it. Want to try more of the menu!
Five of us had a terrific 30th birthday celebration on Saturday evening. Dennis (the Menace) was so helpful in guiding us through the menu. All the food was first class and the wine was also just right. Nice celebratory touch with the dessert as well
The service was so bad, no attention to when we had finished eating or needed more drinks whenever we ordered a We had to chase each round of drinks by 25 mins we even had to wait for the bill for 20 mins. One waiter even said I don’t think you have ordered good things.
Great sushi, great service and the chef's go WAHEYYY together when one of them makes a joke.
As always amazing!
Really bad sushi !
Yet another delicious meal at Charlotte street Roka!
Food was amazing.
I wished I hadn’t selected the Premium tasting menu though. It felt like we were upsold after picking a couple of the signature dishes with a well-rehearsed spiel. And then once we had selected that option it felt like they were trying to get through the dishes and us out the door as quickly as possible.
If I visit again i will stick the al la carte menu.
Always delicious! Fabulous service and always a pleasure
We've been before and would come again. Food was presented well and tasted delicious. Staff very helpful.
It felt more like a cafe experience more than it used to
Amazing food, pleasant ambiance if you’re with friends! Wait in the basement enjoying a cocktail and music
The bar surface is slanted. Plates kept sliding down.
Tasty food and wine .. good service and friendly staff.
Everything was good specially the lettuce salad and the eggplant appetizer and the chicken sticks and the sweetest but you have to check the bill because they put some extra orders that we didn’t order but overall it’s a good experience and a will come next time for sure
Appreciated the fact that it was open late on a Sunday evening. Food was very good and service excellent.
Roka was full so they took us downstairs at the lounge.. where the service wasn’t good and the food wasn’t as well.
Very good food, it is a little annoying that nothing arrives together, I know it is meant to all be shared but not everone necessarily eat the same thing so we all ended up having dinner at different times! Good service but the place is too loud with the music and the acoustics are really bad as well. If you are only two people its fine but more than 2 you cannot speak to anyone else apart from the person sitting next to you, which is a shame.
Great service and food
