Have had a mixed bag of experiences at Roku and alas, this was our least favourable.
We know it's hard for restaurants being in and out of covid, however........there were a few things that seemed simple enough to get right that weren't.

Booked online and outside was the only availability but didn't realise it was at the bar outside squished in beside a table...fair enough but middle of winter and the overhead heater wasn't working. When asked the waitress said it hadn't worked since this morning. Just call the booked guests to forewarn us and allow us the option.....we muscled up and pressed on in the cold, but alas, that's how the miso came.....warm at best. Food was not as good as other times but ok. Will look elsewhere to enjoy a nice dinner out next time.

Having been many times before and thoroughly enjoyed our meals ambience service etc. We were disappointed on the food our mains we all ordered the same and all three came to same conclusion, overly fishy, over cooked, dark and bitter

Amazing menu and friendly staff. It’s a small space so noise can be a slight problem but it is worth it for the food! Tofu fries are the ultimate!

My husband and I had an entree each to share. Both were very nice. Our mains were not so good. I had the Asian slow cooked beef ribs which were very tough and dry and I could not eat them. My husband had teriyaki chicken that had very little sauce on it and was very bland. I hate to complain but neither main were nice.

Roku Den has become our go-to restaurant when we are in the area. We came from Chelsea, Vic to watch the Cats vs Eagles match in Geelong and decided to stay the night so we could dine at Roku Den. Excellent service, superb food and ambience ... we love it 😋👌

Food took bit long to be served and the kids chicken teriyaki sauce wasn’t that good at all. We find it a bit salty and flavours a bit strong for a little one.
We love the rest of the food we had though. Thank you.
