    They served us what looked like “leftovers”! The corn had a bite mark on it and the rice bowel came out with soy sauce on it! The chicken was cold and when they took it back to warm it up they burned it and brought it back! When management was told they insisted that the vote mark was just a cut and nothing more! Bringing me someone else’s leftovers is one thing but insulting my intelligence is another! Never again not worth getting sick in this day and age!

    What a fabulous experience. We were celebrating my friend’s special birthday and the manager went out of her way to make sure we could sit where we were comfortable and I could handle the bill without my friend knowing about it. We we also brought a scoop of ice cream with a candle to make the celebration complete. The food, as always, was excellent. I would highly recommend Roka Akor for any special occasion.

    Only issue is that the staff is too quick to clear plates. They do ask but sometimes when they already have the plate in their hands.

    This was our first time at this restaurant. I made a 12 o’clock reservation for our family of six for Father’s Day. Our table was right next to the kitchen…..it sucked. Completely change the mood of this special occasion. It was very awkward having a table right there by the kitchen the servers are just standing there almost staring at you and you see the clutter of the kitchen and it’s messiness of it all. Than at one point the this server (not the waitress) was serving us some sort of rice & was aggressively mixing it and splattered on my top. I then got up and went to the bathroom to clean it however they only have one bathroom and there was a wait. So I’m standing there with oil on my top waiting to get inside so I can dab some cold water maybe put some soap on it. Ughhhhh Food was OK we enjoyed it and I would recommend if you do come here get the steak or something that’s grilled. We thought they did a really excellent job on that. I wish they had put us maybe outside in a tent area or more inside of the restaurant that would’ve maybe change the whole atmosphere I think it’s a great place to meet your friends but I don’t know about special occasion.

    Everything we had was delicious appetizers to dessert. We had a varied selection of Maki from the menu all delicious. The Wagu was just perfection. My personal standout was my 18 year old son finally trying calamari, and knowing he will have a difficult time finding a suitable comparison elsewhere. I look forward to our returning to this gem soon!

    While it said nothing anywhere online when I arrived I was informed that as a single diner I would not be allowed to order the Omakase. As it was then too late to procure a reservation somewhere else I was disappointed.
