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.

    We had a lovely time at Roka Canary Wharf, my second time. The food, drinks and ambience was amazing. Not only that, but the customer service is excellent here I would definitely recommend.

    First ‘proper’ meal out in ages and it was great. Food was amazing as was the service. Only gripe was the lack of choice for non alcoholic drinks. A few sweet cocktails, water or soft drinks. Maybe some non alcoholic beer / g&t options would have been nice. It’s not cheap but it is good. Would go back Oh the cherry almond dessert was amazing as well.

    I was really disappointed by the experience. First, it's the amount of food and the taste of sushi itself was not up to par for the price paid. The o-toro was definitely not a good part of tuna's belly- it wasn't soft & fatty enough.

    Nice evening, friendly atmosphere. Onoff and Mehdi were very good and pleasant. Just wished I was told about the optional service charge and the charitable donations and VAT that totalled £42 extra on top of my bill

    We were really looking forward to our dinner at Roka for a special occasion and the experience was a let down. The service was very slow and distant. The server we had seemed to be daydreaming the whole time and we needed to catch his attention throughout - for example to place our order after waiting 25 mins with menus and not even a drink. The food was good but poor value with ridiculously tiny portions. The sashimi was a joke with three tiny slivers of fish for an exorbitant price. The other issue is the atmosphere of the place. It is a modest sized dining room with tables close together and noisy groups of people. The noise reverberates around the room with no soft furnishing to absorb the sound making it impossible to hear the people you are dining with. This obviously makes the problem worse with everyone shouting at each other. Overall this is a poor value restaurant and there are so many better options in London.

    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.
