Went for wife’s birthday and had a great time. Our waiter, David, gave us outstanding recommendations and was very attentive without being bothersome. We had crab legs and lamb chops which were both great, and to be honest the crab legs were the best we’ve ever had!
Only negative is that the seating areas differ greatly and you’ll have much deferent experiences depending or where you get seated. At first they sat us in a little both right across from where they were setting up the to-go orders and it was less than ideal. We asked to be moved to better seats which they did and it’s was a huge improvement! Also, go after sunset because it’s feels completely different during the daylight.
Our waiter was amazing, the food was great and we highly recommend going here!
Food was tasty and loved the set up. Service left a lot to be desired. Long periods of no attention despite a restaurant not even half full.
Always outstanding, much better than Nobu and at same level of Zuma. Rice pot with truffle always great, this time was not the best but still outstanding. David our server was courteous and very attentive.
We came to Roka to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. This was our first time at a restaurant since March. The food and service never disappoints, but this time we were even more impressed by the attention to safety, cleanliness and social distancing. Maxine (Max) was an absolute gem. This was definitely worth the wait.
Great food! Good service.
I’ve been to Roka before having eaten the Omakase. There wasn’t a lot of bang for the bucks this time. I would put this on par with many nice sushi places but it’s not even on my top 5 anymore. Why would they service lamb chops on the Omakase and not let people select between another meat? All I was told was difference between the 2 Omakase’s was the meat selection was either American waygu vs Japanese! Nobody said lamb chops which was super gamey! Plenty of other places to eat with a cheaper price point.
I would definitely go back again.
The food was simply delicious. Very nice atmosphere! I enjoyed having dinner. I would definitely go back.
Amazing! Best meal iv ever had! Can’t wait to rerun!
Food was outstanding and service was top notch. We felt very safe as the restaurant is very clearly taking COVID safety measures very seriously.
Great food. Ambiance could be more upscale. Valet attendant was rude and could not be bothered with servicing our car. In fact, he said " you really want Valet service?".. So we self parked and that was a big turn-off for a first impression.
Loved everything about this place! Beautiful presentation of food and good drinks! We loved the ambience! Perfect for a date night!
Touch bright to the west end of the restaurant at 6PM.
Always have a great experience at Roka Akor! Great food, cocktails, and service.
We’ve been to Roka a few times in the past but we went in August for our anniversary and everything was so amazing! Perfect actually. So we decided to bring our older kids there to try everything. It was again amazing. From the drinks to the Kobe steak to the toro. The toro was better for our anniversary but it was still very good when we brought the kids. Actually the filet was even better than the Kobe this time. Our son had the lamb and said it was also great! We will be back for sure! Thank you for another amazing experience!
The food was very good, but the service we received by David was what put this experience over the top. David could not have possibly been more helpful and friendly throughout our time in the restaurant. From constantly checking in on us to providing spot on suggestions about what to order, David was on top of it all. No one from our party had a lot of experience with nigiri and sashimi, but David managed to take our preferences and turn them into the perfect set of suggestions. Based on all of that, coupled with the quality of the food, I can confidently say we will be coming back (and hopefully get to dine with David again!).
The service was great and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. Food was delicious.
Consistently fantastic food, drinks and service! Always enjoy our dinners here. Highly recommend this place for a unique, high quality sushi/Japanese dinner.
Todo estuvo delicioso!!! El mejor restaurante japonés de Houston
The food was delicious and everything was excellent!!!
We had so much fun at ROKA AKOR. I’ve been here a couple times and it’s wonderful! Great food, service and drinks. Definitely one of my favorites! Cheers!
ROKA is an upscale restaurant with great sushi BUT the last couple of times I've been there for dinner the clientele seems to be leaning towards an element that is difficult to describe politely. Suffice it to say, when I go out and spend $$'s at a nice restaurant I don't want to feel like I'm surrounded by 'Characters of the night'
The food was amazing! Definitely pricey, but absolutely worth it.!
Omakasi was amazing
We tried the Omakase for the first time and each course was outstanding in both taste and presentation !
It was an amazing dining experience and Ricky was very welcoming with special attention and our server Nick was exceptional!!!
I have been spreading the word ..
Amazing food, service. Nick was excellent as was the entire staff.
Very conscientious as it related to Covid precautions. Wonderful experience.
Incredible! New fave. Outstanding fare. Everything we ate was a 10! Wow!!!
Great food.. Sushi is delicious. Must try the bone marrow it is awesome
Great service, beautiful setting, food was stunning & tasted great! Sake was so yummy! The mixed drinks we had were very good. Everything was wonderful.
We celebrated my 40th birthday. Our server was attentive and very nice. The food was delicious! A thoughtful added touch to the evening was that Roka Akor treated us each to a glass of bubbles after dinner was over!
Nice restaurant and food was delicious. Service was a little sluggish. Talk with the General Manager briefly, Ryan, who completely smoothed things over.. Extremely nice gentleman. Would recommend to others.
Amazing as always, bartenders are awesome
Excellent omakase with fresh fish, variety of dishes, and tons of food for the amount paid. I would pass on drinks though, as they were not as impressive.
Love this restaurant. Cocktails are great. Food is excellent especially the raw fish. Service is attentive as always and now also safe. Would definitely return again.
Always a great experience. Great food and drink and professional staff.
It was unbelievable, we loved it.
The King Crab Truffle is the best sushi roll I've ever had.
Excellent food, drinks and atmosphere. We had an excellent time
We love this restaurant, the King Crab Legs are delicious. The shrimp tempura is really good too. The sauces that are given for each dish are amazing! The pork belly melts in your mouth and that corn OMG! Love, love, love!
We are definitely going back here. Loved it, a lot
Always great. Def in my top three sushi spots in Houston for sushi quality and options. Service was also great yet again.
And if you’re looking for somewhere clean and taking the proper precautions during pandemic. This is it. One of the only restaurants I actually feel safe at.
See you guys soon!
