The beef dumplings and crispy tuna tartare appetizers never disappoint. Their rolls are small so you don’t feel like you’ve filled up on rice. The only thing I wouldn’t get again was their Moscow Mule. Wasn’t overly crowded on a Thursday night and seemed to have plenty of staff.

The sushi was absolutely exquisite. My wife and I especially enjoyed the fatty tuna. There were so many different notes of flavor in each dish and overall it was a superb symphony of flavor.

We love Roka Akor, especially the nigiri and sushi chef selections, and of course the deep pours of wine and the great martinis. We've been numerous times and the food is and ambiance is amazing,

The food and service were amazing. There is a price to pay for fresh seafood in the desert, but even with that the prices were reasonable.

My husband and I are regulars here. I booked dinner on the patio to celebrate his birthday. The food and service was very good as usual. Even though I booked the reservation a couple weeks ahead of time, my husband and I were seated at a table literally in a corner each of us facing a wall. Disappointing.

Food and service is excellent. Roka always has amazing specials not on the menu as well as consistent staples like the dumplings and slider burgers. Butterfish is super delicious! Must try!

We ordered their chef's pick sashimi, Nigiri and Japanese Waygu (Kobe) from the menu. Chef's pick sashimi was fresh but due to off season, we were not lucky enough to get the Blue Fin Tuna on that night. Japanese Kobe, YUMM .... Full of umami from lightly char-grilled portion of the meat and it was so soft and tender inside. Price wise i think is comparable to those authentic Japanese restaurants, a little pricey but it is definitely worth for every penny spent.

Nigiri... hmm... not as great as i got from the one made by a Japanese chef i used to visit in SoCal though. The Nigiri chef that night was slightly lack of a great skill in putting together the rice and the fish and hence the texture, the feeling of holding and biting onto the Nigiri was a little under my expectation.

Overall this is a top notch service and upscale food from the restaurant!

Brittany was an excellent waitress. We had a wonderful time. The food was out of this world. We left with a bill of $800 for four of us. I think we escaped with a good price given it was New Year’s Eve

Service was a bit slower than normal. But, I’m sure like every other business they were short staffed. Did not effect us. Just abnormal.

This was our first time back in a couple years. Menu still top notch. Everything came out perfectly cooked. Pork belly, salmon nigiri, waygu filet (domestic), sea bass - every dish was melt in the mouth delicious. And for a busy Dec 24, service was well staffed and well executed.

I don’t recall her name but our waitress had the cutest Sun shaped dangling earrings Saturday night and told us a story of her taking out 3 Ube in one night if that helps identify her for praise later. She was AMAZING, we loved all her recommendations and her service was phenomenal. I recommend Roma Akor for any special events or celebrations.

First time dining at this restaurant. Over all not bad. Being of Japanese descent and having traveled all over Japan for years, the food was good but not as traditional as we expected. Service was above average but our server forgot one order of food.

Was my wife’s birthday so we decided to eat at this cool looking restaurant. Hanna was our server and she was very attentive to our needs. Food was just ok and didn’t come out together at all. My meal came after the rest of my family was almost done eating, so I ate some of everyone ones food. Portions are very small for the prices and everything came out very oily and you couldn’t really taste the seasoning or flavors. Was a Sunday night 7:30, so not sure why the kitchen was so off. Had 2 beers and the family had soda and tea, total bill was about $420 with tip. Pretty price for what it was.
