    The über-stylish Roka Akor, a spin-off of London-based Roka, sets itself apart from the Valley's myriad other Japanese restaurants by specializing in robatayaki, Japanese-style grilled dishes. Read more

    Ok, of the three: prime rib kimchi dumpling 1, black cod 2, butterfish 3. All great but I want more of #1. Gotta have the shochu! If in chicago go to roka akor on north clark! Best sushi in Chicago!

    Have the omakase chef's tasting menu, it takes 3 hours to eat at 22 items. Have the chef deep fry the fish skeleton that garnishes your sashimi garden, it's an experience you must have!!!

    My top 3: Prime rib kimchi dumplings, crispy Brussel sprouts, and cremini mushrooms. Flowers, "Perennial" 2011 Pinot blend is excellent! Also loving the Aladdin sake!

    Happy Hour is all evening. Appetizers from $2.00 to about $6.00 and drink specials. You can end up spending either $40.00 for 2 people or $100.00 - I have done both but had an amazing time each time a

    The Shochu Lounge has great food & drink specials. Ask for Victoria (bartender), she's the best! Hands down my fave sushi in AZ and they have the freshest fish! Get the butterfish tataki

    Love this place for its summer bar menu, great food and good deals. But what is up with.. No cell reception and the slowest wifi in any 3rd world country! WTF!!!!! Wake up!

    ORDER THE OMAKASE!! A many-course "experience". Many places do Omakase as "artsy minimalist", but Roka does a very filling & creative meal. Take a chance and live a little! Trust me, it's worth it!

    Tasty food, but service is…bizarre. Components of the meal came randomly, with one diner getting his entree after everyone else was finished. Vegetable sides were delivered between entree and dessert.

    Try the Shishito Peppers - Love the way the bonito flakes move from the temperature of the peppers.

    Probably the best restaurant ever! If you are willing to break the bank the omakase tasting is unreal. You won't find anything you won't like.

    When the chef found out that I was sensitive to lemon, he redesigned the dish for me on the spot and it was divine!

    If you're vegetarian, go with a suggestion from the server. Don't custom-order avocado rolls, because they'll fall apart easily.

    This place tries too hard and is way over priced for what it offered. For three people one alcoholic drink, two soft drinks, 3 appetizers, two regular mains (no Kobe or wayu beef ) 1 dessert. Paid 180
