Roka on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

I can’t believe I’ve lived in London for 5 years before trying Roka (Charlotte Street branch). We tried out the premium tasting menu and it was very good.

Roka: Sashimi


Roka: Sashimi


Roka: Foie Gras


The quail, foie gras, sashimi, duck, and dessert platter at Roka were all excellent dishes, bursting with flavour and texture. The decor is lovely, lot’s of light (because of the big windows). If you get the chance, ask to be seating by the counter. That way you get to sit next to your partner and watch the chefs prepare the hot dishes.

Roka: Quail


Roka: Hamachi


Roka: Cod dumpling


The service at Roka is attentive (our waiter explained the dishes to us and made some good spirit recommendations).

Roka: Duck barbecue


Roka: Lamb chops


Roka: Dessert platter

All in all, Roka has to be considered one of the best restaurants in London (not just Asian restaurants). I’ll definitely be back!
Overall rating of Roka: 9.5/10
