Roka Canary Wharf
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.

Very nice food. There was an incident with another customer being ill next to us. But they moved us swiftly and provided some complimentary food without being prompted. 100% going back
It was phenomenal
Very enjoyable meal as usual. Great service and lovely food. Busy restaurant.
First time at Roka and it was s oi lovely. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. We went in a Thursday night so was really busy and a bit loud. The only negative point I have is that the tables are a little close together.
The lamb cutlets were my favourite, would really recommend those! And the dessert..Wow!
Brilliant service as soon as we walked in.
We had the tasting menu and it was truly amazing.
Thoroughly recommend for a business or social get together.
Me & My fiancé had a lovely evening celebrating our anniversary. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The service was great very officiant and attentive. We ordered the premium tasting menu that was spectacular. The food came quickly & frequently with constant fresh plates and top up of our drinks. We was given a bottle of champagne complimentary which was very kind of the restaurant. When our desert arrived it had a lit candle with writing across it saying Happy anniversary which was the best ending to our evening & experience with Roma. We highly recommend this restaurant & we would return again with pleasure.
The food was exceptionally good, everything was well cooked and presented perfectly. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed and décor is really nice. Overall had a great night out.
Brilliant place for a first date.
On a date with my wife. First time to ROKA and it was excellent. We ordered the Premium Tasting Menu. It was delicious. The entire staff were friendly. Great place!
We had an amazing night having dinner. Fast service and nice waiters but the restaurant was a bit loud which I couldn't hear properly what the waitress was explaining about the dishes. Quality food! Highly recommend it.
Amazing food & drink - the experience was let down by the ambiance - so noisy it was like going clubbing! We couldn't hear each other!
It's always a pleasure dining here, this time it was a girly meet up fueled with great food and wine. I've been here a few times and it won't be long before I'm back again. Marco was an absolute delight!
Amazing Sunday brunch experience, would defiantly recommend
We went for my daughters 13th birthday for lunch. The restaurant staff were brilliant and bought out dessert with a candle and birthday message. I told the staff when booking that I am gluten and dairy free and they were amazing catering for my needs. They were very attentive and knowledgable. I felt really looked after by our waitress Mesi. We had a great time
Food was good. The waiter was a little pushy encouraging us to order more food - which we weren’t able to finish!
Amazing afternoon. Food and service was 1st class
Mixed bag but certainly not worth the money....
So I’ll get to the point.... this restaurant is certainly not worth the money in comparison to others of a similar nature. The tasting menu is average and the service is hit and miss... some really good, friendly, knowledgeable people but others who can’t master the basics.... I’ve eaten there before (5 years ago) and it was excellent unfortunately things have slipped and I wouldn’t rush back....
We got the set menu, the food was very nice and filling. The service was great, our waiter was really helpful and had a nice energy. Overall a very nice experience
A wonderful surprise in the bland world of Canary Wharf
The waiter was not overly helpful in comparison with other times we have dined at the restaurant.
Excellent service and fabulous food though a bit overpriced
Delicious food and well presented - all dishes were equally fantastic. A great and diverse menu, in fact hard to pick as it all looks so good!. Friendly staff who explained and described each dish on serving it. Restaurant décor is very pleasant creating a cosy but elegant setting - nice lighting.
Still my favourite place. Lovely food. Too many nice things to choose from. Had lunch set menu but added a couple of things but really didn’t need to!!
Just expensive for expensive sake. The food is great and the service is ok. But otherwise you're just paying up for everything. There's no value in the experience
Amazing food and service.
A typical place for after work dinner with some good servers and some less attentive servers. Food was good, but nothing special. Drinks/wine was average. With plenty of better options in town, I see no reason to go back.
Celebrated friends birthday and had a great time! Food doesn’t disappoint and u can eat as much sashimi as u can!
When a booking is made through Opentable, they usually take the customers to the tables located at the back, next to the toilets and spots where you cannot even reach out to the service staff. Very poor experience due to this behaviour.
Perfect spot for a special occasion dinner. Tasting menu was incredible, great range of flavours (sashimi, meat, veggies) and gorgeous presentation. Our waiter was very attentive, service was quick and smooth. Good choice of drinks (delicious cocktails, sake, but also more traditional wines).
Roka is good quality
I go quite a bit so the novelty has worn off
Service always good, but by comparison to other sushi places it’s incredibly expensive, I suppose you need to account for the overheads associates with the post code but zuma, Nobu & Roka are probably all a little overrated
Would recommend the sashimi and black cod fresh/well prepared but a bit pricey
Once again the food was amazing as was the service will definitely be back. Even managed dessert sticky toffee pudding and the almond creme brûlée with cherry blossom ice cream what can I say but gorgeous.
been here many times and it rarely disappoints. However, service was extremely poor this time. From when we sat down we waited 30 minutes for our first drink.
The waitress we had at our table was lovely and very nice. They had good quality high chairs, and was very child friendly, which was brilliant. The brunch food was amazing, and the topping up of wine even better!
My son has multiple allergies and the staff were excellent. Very good service and food
Food was amazing. Service was a little slow.
The chicken rice dish is too salty! But the fish is very fresh. The services are also very good.
Had a great night a Roka from a few drinks at the bar before to a lovely meal with excellent service.
Will return again, thoroughly enjoyed it.
We had a great meal, with excellent service. Will definitely go back.
