About Roka Canary Wharf

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.

the robata grill itself is located amid diners and forms an integral design element of all the restaurants. not just a feature, the robata is more the beating heart of ROKA, the area from which all energy flows. an energy that offers warmth and enjoyment while guests admire the respect given to the food as each dish is prepared.

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

I'm vegan, so was expecting not to be able to eat much at all. However, the waiter was super helpful and found out everything that I could eat and it turned out to be a fairly extensive selection. My boss even went vegan with me and loved it all! Espresso martinis were great.

Went to Roka for the first time with guests from abroad. Have tried premium tasting menu! The food was excellent and mouth watering! Black cod and yellowtail were to die for! Have also tried different cold and hot sake. Really happy with this finding!will certainly return again

What an AMAZING time we all had at Roka for brunch. Definitely one of the best brunches in London & would thoroughly recommend it. I went with my fiancé and our 2 friends and we all can't wait to go back! The staff were attentive, chefs amazing & in full view of where we were sitting & all of the unlimited wine complimented all we ate perfectly. Food was simply delicious. I honestly do not have a bad word to say about this restaurant - what a find!

Absolutely fabulous Japanese restaurant but pricey so definitely a place I'd go to again for another special celebration. We had the tasting menu which was a culinary feat. All the food was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. CNt praise this place enough.

Immaculate service, very busy Sunday lunch booking. Usually 2 hour bookings are flexible as in you can extend your table; but on this occasion we were informed twice that there is another booking waiting for our table.
Food is abundant and delicious - the main of Black Cod MUST be ordered if at Sunday lunch buffet offer.

The food was amazing as always and the wine was lovely. We went for the weekend brunch menu which is good value. The only downside was the service, it wasn't as good as usual but not bad - just a bit slow to top up glasses, in particular the water glasses.

Overall we were happy but we were sitting next to a table with babies , small children & push chairs which were on our way . I don't think children should be allowed on a Saturday night as it spoilt the atmosphere . Felt like I was shopping centre !! Not very nice .

One of my favourite restaurants, we had a fantastic birthday lunch at Roka Canary Wharf in January where my friend and I tried one of their tasting menus. It included a varied selection of Japanese dishes, e.g. sushi, tempura, tekamaki, teriyaki chicken, kimchi, grilled asparagus, eggplant and other vegetables, all of which were beautifully presented and incredibly delicious. There were about 3 different friendly waiters serving our table, so we definitely received lots of attention and service. The dessert plate was equally awesome and had at least 3 different types of sorbet or ice cream, small chocolate & other cakes, plus a variety of fruit, e.g. mango, papaya, strawberries, plums, kiwi, passion fruit. The portions of each dish/ plate were quite generous and by the end of the meal both of us felt quite happily 'stuffed'. We only advised the restaurant the day before that it was to celebrate a birthday and they decorated the dessert plate with a large banana leaf which had "Happy Birthday" written on it and had a lit candle on it, which we thought was a very thoughtful gesture and was much appreciated. A lively, young and upbeat atmosphere without being noisy, it was nice to be able to talk without having to strain ourselves. All in all a perfect experience.
