    Service was great! Just FYI- they passed 3% credit card fee onto their guests without informing them as surcharge. Very sneaky. They should be more upfront about it. When you spend lots of money for your meal. That 3% could be a lot. This totally ruined my experience & would not come back.

    First time diner at this fine Asian Fusion style restaurant and was blown away by the quality of the food, the uniqueness of the menu, and the superior service of the staff. Our table tried two sushi rolls, both were excellent, the unagi/tuna was especially fine. We shared the Black Cod, the Korean Lamb, grilled corn and grilled asparagus. All were absolutely exceptional. The vibe is hip and trendy without going over the top. I recommend this restaurant very highly.

    Having our family back together to celebrate meant finding a good restaurant with a little twist from the ordinary. We found it in spades at Roka Akor. All of the dishes we ordered were fantastic and all had a little different taste than the ordinary. From the wonton to the lamb to the wagyu to the asparagus… it was all great! Highly recommended!!

    The service was great! The food; however, was mediocre. We ordered an appetizer, couple rolls, and main course. For the most part, we had tried the same food at other restaurants before. So, we knew what to expect. Given the price point, the food was not good. I've had better versions of the same dish for half the price. So I was kind of disappointed. The desert was excellent though; worth every penny.
