Japanese
Roka Akor brings an innovative combination of contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine and stunning design to six locations across the U.S., including Scottsdale, San Francisco, Houston, Chicago, Skokie, and Oak Brook, 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.

    Service Waitress was slow on serving/ the noise level at the restaurant was way to high. I went home with a major headache and ringing in my ears. Food was not good. Wagyu filet should be tender and delicious it was hard to cut and chewy. Completely disappointed with entire dinner.

    It took a long time for the waiter to arrive. Waiter was very nice and it seemed like a fairly busy night. A few tables near us who arrived after us received drinks and food before we did so don’t know what that was about. We ordered 4 different types of rolls that I thought were okay. Wild Ginger in Hinsdale is better - fresher and more flavorful. The salmon entree was borderline burned so we couldn’t eat half of it (seared the teriyaki sauce too much). Expensive evening and overall average food and wine.

    My husband and I came in for a date night and it was lovely! Our server, Tim, was attentive and so funny! I ordered the raspberry mule and would have probably asked to mix it with the ginger beer next time but nonetheless it was refreshing. We ordered the hamachi roll, spicy tuna roll and the waygu steak and all were absolutely delicious! The ube for dessert was my favorite and we would certainly come back again!

    Our family dined at Roka Akor-Oak Brook for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. We were celebrating our kids and their return home from college for the summer. The restaurant was clean. The service was great, Lee explained the menu and was very accommodating to allergy concerns. He was personable and had a great sense of humor. The food was excellent quality and freshly prepared. The chef’s presentation was beautiful! We ordered the “Decadent” sampler plus additional meals. The sampler was 7 courses…There was so much food! It took a while for that many courses but the food was all delicious. We will know better how to order for our appetites next time.

    We love Roka Akor. The lunch specials are phenomenal in taste and value. Our server Lee delivers the utmost personalized attention to us. We have been coming back partly because of his excellent service. Our favorites to name a few: fried calamari, glazed pork , sea bass, wagyu dumplings, Ramen noodles, ube mousse.

    Place is nice but a bit loud for our liking as having a conversation was bit difficult. Food was excellent and highly recommend for that. Service was excellent as well with plenty of staff. We were amazed by how quickly the food came. Overall everything was good just need little more sound dampening.

    We tried Roka based on Yelp reviews while in town for a sports tournament. We are so glad we did. The only trouble we had was narrowing down our choices because everything sounded so good. We ended up ordering five of the lunch sets for three people to share so we could try more. The rips, lamb chops, sushi and sea bass were amazing! The lunch boxes were a good value and included soup, salad, rice and potstickers. The only semi-negative was that our main entrees took a long time to come to the table -- but the first course came really quickly.

    All servers were excellent ,very attentive and knowledgeable and fun information about the dishes. It was our 32nd wedding anniversary and were gifted a glass of sparkling wine when we sat down and welcomed with happy anniversary as we were seated We had the decadent tasting menu and it was great The multiple courses were spread out perfectly and kept building on the previous dish The combination of sushi , steak , emperor’s hot pot and other courses combined to make a seamless gourmet experience The dessert plate contained sorbets , fruit cream brûlée and topped off with hot lava chocolate cake with ice cream and happy anniversary written in chocolate Overall we were amazed with the quality of the food , the attention of the wait staff and the experience
