About ROKA

The name ROKA carries great meaning - ROKA is a meeting place where food and drinks are shared with friends (ro) and heat, warmth and an all-embracing energy surround (ka). The principle cuisine is from the robata grill, which originates from the fishermen of the northern coastal waters off japan, who would cook the fish on the boats with different charcoals and share the bounty with one another using their oars.

ROKA charlotte street opened in 2004, ROKA canary wharf in 2009, ROKA mayfair in february 2014 and ROKA aldwych in october 2014.

We just got home from the restaurant. Food was amazing but we got an email saying we didn’t attend the booking and for me it feels really awful because I’m not the one to not cancel when I need to. And we definitely went and enjoyed the food but came home to a very disappointing email. Posting photos to confirm ww have been there today. Can even tell you how much exactly and what we had.

We had an amazing experience from the moment we enter until the end. Although booking counter table, it actually ended up to be very spacious and comfortable sitting overlooking barbecue. Food quality was outstanding and we enjoyed variety of mocktails too. At the end very nice surprise receiving Mochi with birthday candle.

We have been coming to Roka since they opened. This time the experience was quite disappointing. The food was good quality. However when we got seated at the counter we noticed that the surface / table was very sticky ( dirty from the spillage ). We kindly informed the server who casually cleaned it while we were eating. In a process we discovered that the part of the under table we were touching with our cloth were also dirty /sticky. We ended up with a stains on a pants and and on a dress. We also informed the server and manager who casually agreed to clean the surface ( we paid the bill by that time ). In a post Covid 19 this level of hygiene was rather shocking. Also, no one had offered to pay for the dry cleaner as well.
