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.

Kindly note that our set brunch menu is served throughout lunchtime on Saturdays and all day on Sundays – a la carte menu is not available during this time. Menus may vary according to date, time and location, please check menus prior to booking.

Roka is simply beautiful. This was my first time dining at their Canary Wharf restaurant and it was lovely. Stunning food and great service. Yes Roka is pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. One of my favourite restaurants. I only visit once a year but it's a real treat that a always look forward to.

Very loud, too many many people walking past the table. Don't put tables next to the toilet. The food was but nothing special. For that price we expected something special.

Service was excellent, could not fault the staff working there. Food was good but not worth the price. Portion sizes were very small, just enough for 1 person let alone 2 people. Not a big menu to choose from. Overall, I wouldn’t be quick to return to Roka. As I believe competitors like Hakassan offers better value for money in terms of portion size and quality.

I love this place, only criticism is, the premium set lunch menu for 4 men, was "light", you need to supplement with a couple more dishes if you are hungry.

I had forgotten when booking that Roka can be a little loud, but even taking into account festive cheer the ambient noise last week was beyond acceptable for a business meal. The chef's shouting of orders to the kitchen staff was unbelievable, and while perhaps part of the theatre of the culinary experience, it was an unnecessary interruption to every conversation. Although I love the food, which is why I would recommend to a friend, sadly I will reconsider any future business meals in Canary Wharf.

Went for a birthday meal for two on a Tuesday evening. We ordered the seasonal tasting menu. Food was good (the sashimi particularly so). However, service was very poor. One of the dishes on the tasting menu never arrived, and there was a wait of a full hour between finishing our mains and dessert arriving. To cap it off, when the dessert was finally served, it didn't have the birthday message I had arranged over the phone when booking. Not impressed.

Went there with my team for a business dinner. Food was excellent as per usual. Service, however, was very poor. The clock room ladies were rude on the way in as we left our coats and on the way out as we asked for the coats back. We waited a good 30mins before we got the menus. Waiters broke glass twice just behind our table with no apology or checking if we were ok. The food was very slow to arrive and then we were told we couldn’t order dessert because the table was booked. Not sure whether it was a particularly bad night for the staff but definitely not great service.
