ROKA AKOR, recognized by Travel & Leisure & Bon Appetit, is a stylish steak, seafood and sushi restaurant that specializes in Robata cuisine
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
If you don't like eating with chopsticks, don't come here. Food was fabulous.
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!
Had the Aladdin Bottle sake. After 3 bottles, my wish came true!
Happy hour every day till 7. Get the Duck Udon
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!
Eat at the chef's counter!
Everything is delicious, fresh, and beautifully presented. Love the happy hour and $1 oyster nights too!
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!!!
Nice ambience and setting! Sat by the bar and Victoria chose most of my diner of the night! Wild mushroom hot pot in unexpected presentation! Butter cod is perfection
Sushi for white people. Id skip the sushi omakase and go for the tasting menu for two which had great hot items like a whole crispy fried fish and chawanmushi
$$$ But very good.
Try the Fried Calamari - These were amazing, and a HUGE serving. My son and I shared some with the table next to us.
Try the Brussel sprouts - Also with bonito flakes. These were the hit of the night.
Try the Shishito Peppers - Love the way the bonito flakes move from the temperature of the peppers.
Try the Butterfish Tataki With White Asparagus And Yuzu - Catching up on some Foodspotting. This is my favorite thing at Roka.
Must try... Best happy hour in az. Wagyu Hot Dog, soft shell crab burger, and Brussels sprouts!
Happy Hour is until closing in the Lounge until August 31st, 2013.
Get the Expresso Martini
If you're vegetarian, go with a suggestion from the server. Don't custom-order avocado rolls, because they'll fall apart easily.
When the chef found out that I was sensitive to lemon, he redesigned the dish for me on the spot and it was divine!
Happy hour 4:30-7 everyday in the bar and lounge!
Just had the omakase chefs dinner... They kept bringing food till we said enough! Delicious!
The "Chibi burger" sliders in the lounge is hands down the best burger I've ever eaten.
Food is good, there are gnats flying around table, and we saw a girl running from a garbage can screaming when we pulled in the parking lot $&?@ get your shot together guys!!
Try the Butterfish Tataki With White Asparagus And Yuzu - My favorite here
Try the Mango Chile Shochu - Looks like Orange crush, but much more lethal.
Try the Dirty Chopin Martini - Sitting next to Jennifer Tilly's voice double.
Ask for Trish, she's the best!
Try the Fried Soft Shell Crab
The domestic steak is out of this world!
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
Happy Hour is now 4:30-7.
Chibi burger all the way. The end.
Try the Serrano hamachi roll!
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!
Butterfish Tataki and Pork Belly apps are a must try!
The Black Cod is to die for!
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.
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
Black cod is out of this world!!
sit at the bar and ask for shauna! Sweetest girl ever!
Service is amazing... and so is the poochi poochi
You have to try the corn tempura and Serrano chili roll. To die for
Check out their happy hour it's awesome! 5-7pm daily
The flame-seared salmon here is my favorite thing, food or otherwise, that ever existed.
The best restaurant in Phoenix!
Get the Prime Hangar with Chili Ginger Sauce. Make sure you get it medium-rare. And pair it with B Cellars Blend 24.
