Ate here with my partner and we ate all the same dishes except I had salmon nigiri and my partner did not. I got sick and my partner was fine. Have a feeling that even though the salmon nigiri tasted great, something was off about it, since that is the only difference in our diets. You should be fine if you have a strong stomach. Visiting from the US, I don't think I'll be eating raw fish in Mexico again.

Rokai, in Rio Ebro, used to be the number one Japanese restaurant en Mexico City. Not any more. The increase in sales allowed them to standarize their menu in to fix dishes prepared with lower quality ingredients. They were careless using the wasabe in some of the nigiris, and we also tried a forgettable vegetables maki.
In Rokai, we used to eat from the Menu of the day, which consisted in the best fresh fish available for that very day.
There are better places to eat Japanese food in Mexico City, right now.
I fell a little disappointed.

ROKAI es la puerta de entrada al mundo gastronómico japonés de Grupo Kobayashi. Si no han ido nunca a alguno de sus restaurantes es un buen punto de partida. Toda la comida se siente auténtica y especial, se siente hecha con cuidado y cariño. Definitivamente está arriba en mi lista de restaurantes japoneses de la Ciudad de México. Mi recomendación, arranquen con Rokai, pero dejen espacio para caminar a los otros spots del grupo que están en el mismo barrío, para mi gusto, lo mejor es cerrar con un trago en el Le Tachinomi Desu o en el Tokio music, pero lo dejo hasta ahí para que exploren...

I had a reservation for two here at Rokai and it did not disappoint. From start to finish the experience was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and kindly helped us make a decision based off our preference. The ambience was very relaxing as they were playing smooth jazz and of course the food was incredible. I highly recommend this place to anyone who visits CDMX.

Desde antes que comenzara la pandemia no había ido y regresé muy feliz a comer ramen pako y nigiris y me encontré que ya no existe el pako como antes, los nigiris una decepción, el servicio pésimo, equivocación tras equivocación y malos modos al atender y dar el servicio, me llevé una gran decepción ya que yo era fan de este lugar, ojalá sea una mala racha. Suerte.
