Steakhouse
Roka Akor brings an innovative combination of contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine and stunning design to four locations across the U.S., including Scottsdale, San Francisco, Chicago and Skokie, IL. Roka Akor’s principle Robata Japanese cuisine is prepared on a twelve-foot robata grill that uses mesquite charcoal and almond wood with flames that can raise temperatures up to 1,900 degrees. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. In alignment with the restaurant’s name, Roka Akor’s design features a centrally located robata grill that provides the heart of the visual experience, surrounded by rich wood décor and sleek lighting. Guests are encouraged to speak with the chefs about the food to create an interactive and engaging dining experience.

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'

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!

I’ve dine at this location twice. On September 2, 2019 and September 2, 2020. My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement and her birthday here last year and had 5 star experience. A short haired hispanic female waited on us and she was fantastic. I even remember the food runner white and tall and built like a DE. He was extremely informative and pleasant. Food was phenomenal.

After my last visit, I more than likely will no longer celebrate my fiancé’s birthday as a yearly thing. Our waiter was David I believe. He said he’d worked their for ten years. We were the only 6 top there that night and were placed right under the AC unit. I had to ask his name. I was with 5 adults and my brother’s daughter. Appetizers we’re phenomenal and so were the cocktails. Service was terrible. You think if you spend 550, you entitled to a standard of service. To me, he didn’t seem like he wanted to be there or atleast wait on us.

At one point in time the entrees were served.I ordered the filet and Alaskan crab legs. All the food was served but not my crab legs. After about 5 minutes and no check back from the server, I stop him. I ask if he placed my order and he said yes and claimed the cooks were making it. 15 minutes later he walks to the table with the crab legs. Everyone was nearly finished with their entree. I asked him to just return the crab as I wanted surf and turf and I was done with my filet. I get his reaction after the crab leg incident was to stay away from the table. I refilled my own wine and sat with empty plates for too long. A manager never stopped by and the server seemed not to care. We had a long discussion about her birthday and how we celebrated here last year. The server wanted us to purchase dessert but when we declined he decided not to bring the bday dessert.

I think he took on look at my group and decided we weren’t going to tip, spend money, or whatever. My brother is a doctor and I’m a nurse. We are educated, respectful, and tip well.Not a 5 star exp

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.

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!

DANGEROUS PARKING LOT. I’m a frequent diner but didn’t expect my car to be smash and grabbed. Another car also hit tonight. Apparently the security is totally lacking and there’s been rampant instances. This high rent building must do better. Totally violated and little satisfaction on people in charge. DINERS BEWARE. PARK AT YOUR OWN RISK. EXPECT NO HELP
