The signature Omakase was a fun experience but not worth the cost. I expected more from a $300 meal for 2 people. The service was good and it was nice to watch the meal being prepared. They went out of their way by bringing complimentary glasses of champagne since we were celebrating. I would go back but would order specific dishes instead of doing the Omakase.

One of the best meals I have had in my 4.5 Chicago years. Ask for Gary to serve you. He chose our entire menu and it was sensational.

Certainly understand now why such high ratings, our meal was fabulous from start to finish. The tempura one of the best ever had. Not inexpensive, but worthwhile for sure

Always have a wonderful experience at Roku Akor... amazing food, service, and ambience. One of my favorite places to eat in Chicago, and one of the finest sushi restaurants in any city literally around the world that you’ll ever find.

My family of 6 was blown away by our dining experience at Roka Akor last night.
The sheer inventiveness and creativity of a cuisine made with the finest and freshest ingredients, a fantastic staff that is helpful and attentive, ready to hear what you want and willing to guide you to the best options, and a general manager who knows how to make his guests feel like royalty!
Japanese food with a twist, and offerings that satisfied the meat lovers and seafood lovers in our group!
Thank Roka Akor, David our server, Mr. Udovich the manager for a memorable experience!!

This was a special date night for my birthday, and we had an incredible time. Our server was excellent, had great recommendations and every dish we tried was delicious. All the food is unique and beautiful in presentation as well. We ate inside and I was concerned about eating inside due to covid, but our table was in a quiet back room far away from other tables, so it was very comfortable to be eating inside. All around great -would highly recommend!

Everything about our dinner was wonderful. We had the Decedent Omakase and Daniel our server was phenomenal. Everything from the bluefin tuna toro to the A5 wagyu filet and the ridiculous dessert was outstanding. While this may not be your traditional Tokyo omakase We were very pleased with impeccable service, trendy decor and vibe, we were very pleased with our dining experience and will recommend to our friends.

Amazing dinner! We toured through the appetizer section with the roasted peppers and Wagyu pot stickers being some of the tastiest bites i have had in quite some time. The seared scallops and lobster roll were also delightful! The Wagyu steak with chili dipping sauce has my mouth watering still. Our waiter Aaron did a great job and made the experience even more fun. 10/10
