The sushi chef is very rude.
We asked him for chilli and he acted offended. That is no way to treat costumers.

En General todo excelente. La única objeción fue que habían algunos comensales fumando en las mesas al aire libre y el humo alcanzaba a entrar,al interior del RESTAURANT, así que a parte de desagradable comer con olor a humo de cigarrillo, es un riesgo con el tema del COVID tener que tragarse el humo exhalado por otras personas, así que la sana distancia, queda sin sentido! Deberían prohibir fumar cerca de otros comensales. Es un tema de salud pública!

Ha bajado mucho la calidad y ahora me parece muy caro para lo que comí. Antes, a pesar de ser caro, lo pagaba con gusto.

A little mixed. Service was brisk, friendly, and distant at the same time. Food was good, but everything arrived at the same time. Ambience is authentic but not high-end.

Tanto escuche acerca de este restaurante que finalmente tuve la oportunidad de pasar a cenar.
Pata comenzar, hay buena cantidad de mrseros pero no prestan la suficiente atencion.Segundo, no habia atun regular asi que pedimos rl toro.Calidad muy baja, una racion minuscula y ademas caroEl arroz para mi gusto tiene un exceso de vinagre..Despues de probar los nigiris,decidimos mejor irnos a otro restaurante japones.En esa zone abundan,, con mejor precio,ambiente y calidad.tras haber estado en Japon mas de 20 veces y conocer mas de 30 restaurantes japoneses en Mexico, la verdad es que no volveria a Rokai.Creo en algun momento fue muy bueno pero lo han dejado caer.Esa es mi impresion.

El lugar es súper recomendable, me considero cliente frecuente y me he dado cuenta que siempre tengo un tema con las mesas: están muy cerca una de la otra y siempre siempre se puede escuchar lo que los de a un lado están platicando.

Es un poco incómodo porque notas como las otras personas incluso hablan más bajo.
De ahí en fuera todo es muy bueno, la comida, la atención y la ambientación.

I've been to Rokai in the past and had a lovely time with incredible food and friendly service. BUT this time the service was off - the waiter incorrectly explained several dishes to my friend and I so we ordered some pricey items we wouldn't have chosen if we'd had the right information (and we decided we didn't want to get him in trouble by explaining and sending them back). He clearly needed more training and support in relating to the food and menu. When we asked for soy sauce, he hovered over us as we poured a tiny amount out (directly on to the food as there was no where else) and took it back immediately. At the end, we asked a waiter for the bill but it never came. 20 minutes later the same waiter came back quite angry because we hadn't left even though it was getting late... We again asked for the bill and then he rudely stood over us while we divided it and dug out cards etc. For the money, this was all unacceptable Rokai!

La comida es muy buena, sin embargo, el costo es muy alto considerando el tamaño de las porciones. He sido un habitual visitante del Rokai y los nigiris cada vez son más pequeños.
