Maki Roll and Tataki were fresh , so full of flavor .. I can’t say enough . - Beautiful ambiance , outstanding service and spectacular food . A MUST in Chicago .
Waiter explained the menu beautifully and food was just as wonderful.
Dope corner spot where you can see life in downtown chicago happen. Good steak, great sushi, and my better half enjoyed her Wagyu. Pricing is a bit steep based on quality, but it was a really modernized steak house with plenty of choices.
I went for restaurant week with my husband and parents. The food was amazing and for an amazing price. Iv been one other time and it was excellent in both food quality and service. They are super nice and real pros.
Roka Akor’s dining experience was phenomenal. I am vegetarian, and they had ample delicious options for me. Further, the service was excellent! We never had to try and track down someone for water, and our server offered helpful and honest feedback for dishes to try. I would definitely recommend this for any event; we had a lovely date night!
Our first time an Roka Akor. Great food, great service, great drinks! We had the Wagyu flight for national steak month. Delicious!
Fabulous service and amazing food. My wife had a bento lunch and I had some ramen. The shrimp tempura with sweet chile sauce was delicious.
This is by far my favorite restaurant in Chicago. The food is outstanding, the service outstanding and the ambience entices fun.
Literally my favorite restaurant in Chicago!! Anything I’ve tried has been absolute heaven in my mouth! Today we had the prime beef tataki and crispy squid as apps and they were fantastic. For entree we had the waygu steak and the prime bone in ny strip with miso truffle butter and on the side the Brussels. As usual the steak was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth and the Brussels were delicious. We had the warm chocolate cake with caramel sauce, coffee ice cream and candied pecans which was the perfect end. Still miss the tea for two drink but the lychee martinis were delicious as a substitute. Everything was fantastic as usual.
Outstanding, per usual. Anthony was the best!
Beef tartar, chef’s sashimi selection, premium beef, maki rolls, and tempuras are just AMAZING!
Amazing place and food.
Great experience! Food and service was excellent! Would definitely recommend!
Crispy squid was fried near perfection and the green tea dessert was superb!!!
Loved everything about the Decadent Omakase selection. Superb service as wel!
The place is definitely an excellent restaurant warm, friendly and outstanding food. Unique testing and definitely a return spot for our family. Everything from the service to the food was unbelievable and managers checking tables is good to see.
Celebrating New Years Eve at Roka Akor Chicago is amazing and very appeasing

If you love fresh and exotic then Roka Akor Chicago is a must experience.
Great place for any occasion or celebration
Can’t wait to comeback and enjoy their great food again
Thank you Roka Akor for being amazing every time
Food was delicious as usual! Can never go wrong with Roka!
I have been a big fan of Roka Akor for many years however the sushi now is only average and the ribs were very fatty and chewy.
Very tasty menu, main dishes delicious, black sea bass , mushroom rice, lamb chops must have. Lichee 🍸 so good 🤩
The experience we had at Roka was just okay. The service and food was just okay. Kitchen isn’t flexible in terms of substitutions or creating something for the customer that was willing to pay more to get what was requested ... this was a deal breaker for me. No matter where we go (spending this type of money), we always found a solution in terms of food, service, etc. We were not impressed and for the money spent, over 400 for two, i would have selected another establishment that would have delivered a better overall experience.
Blah. Not worth the nearly $300 price tag for the tasting menu as a repeat guest. We were there a few years ago and it was a great first experience. Our recent visit was basically the same food items served years ago. Not much of a tasting/chef menu if the food is the same. Would recommend if you’ve never been to the restaurant otherwise there are plenty of other options in Chicago.
Dinner out after an afternoon at the theatre
Just amazing to us how Roka Akor knocks it out of the park every time. Flawless food and service. We live in Panama, we visit Chicago 1 week in summer 1 week in winter.... Roka Akor is always on our list as a don’t miss.
Fabulous food and service
Great food and ambience. Staff was extremely knowledgeable about the menu which helped our decision making as we don’t eat sushi often. The Japanese wagyu was also amazing.
What an experience! We did the signature tasting. It was great!
Our server was fantastic and personable. It was my parent's first time here and he made them feel very welcome. Everything was delicious and I was so excited to get a little birthday surprise (the "VIP dessert" haha) with a candle to blow out. We had a great time, as always. The only thing I am a little disappointed about is that this location doesn't serve the Paper Tiger cocktail. It's my favorite and I seem to only be able to get it at the suburb locations.
Jennifer was fantastic
Server and support staff were exceptional
Holiday team lunch
Amazing experience! We did the Omakase for my fiancé’s birthday. I got the wine pairings with it as well. Everything tasted absolutely amazing. I have noted on the reservation that it was my fiancé’s birthday and we were wanting the Omakase experience and it was apparent that the restaurant read the request and made sure they addressed every part. Gary was our waiter and he was so wonderful at reading our personalities and I truly enjoyed him informing me about all the wines I was tasting. All over, a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We can’t wait to come back!
Service was awful. We waited forever for our drinks. Food was not bad but service ruined the experience.
Got there early, service seemed slow on the uptake. Items were very good, not remarkable. 3 vegetarian children in our party. Not a tremendous range of items for them, but off menu suggestions were given. Wine selection was ok, not great. Daze race was missing absinthe flavor. Everyone makes their own version.
Celebrated our son’s 24rh birthday tonight at Roka Akor.
Always outstanding food, cocktails, & service!
First time visiting Roka Akor and it was amazing. We did the Decadent for three people this five course meal did not disappoint. Everything was delicious.
In town for a conference-good Fresh, hot and delicious! Brussel sprouts were the best we’ve ever had!
Excellent food, nice service, would prefer a less noisy atmosphere
