    Recently visited for a business meal, as expected very attentive service, great food with the premium taster menu, nice environment with high chair seating. Not the cheapest but overall worth it.

    We went for a meal with some friends. It was recommended to us. The atmosphere was brilliant and the place was very busy. We had a Japanese beer to warm up and a fantastic red wine with the meal. The food was fantastic and service was great. Highly recommended.

    I was invited for a business lunch at this great restaurant. The ladies at the front door was very nice, as we arrived early (mistaken on the time), they were very kind to get a table for us at a very busy Friday lunch time. Fish are amazing, they are fresh, tasty and nice presented. The most wonderful thing was the desert, please see my photo uploaded, that was a highlight.

    Excellent Japanese food. The lobster dish was amazing as was the sushi. Cocktails were also really good. The only minus is the high cost, however we felt it was definitely worth it.

    The atmosphere of this restaurant is unique, they serve fusion food, sushi, sashimi etc. For lovers of Japanese cuisine this is THE place to go! Food is sensational, service excellent, wine selection beautiful, will be back.

    We arrived for a late lunch. Our dishes were Unagi Avocado Maki rolls (very light and tasty), rock shrimp (Roka does it best), Chicken wing skewers (which were sublime on the palate) to start with and the rice and crab hotpot, Salmon Teriyaki and beef sishito pepper skewers. The food kept arriving and we enjoyed our own tasting menu. Awesome food with service to match.

    Excellent japanese food. Perfect presentation although they can improve the atable attention. I have eaten here 4 times. Food is always great, but last time we thought they were expecting us to leave to get next guests in our table

    As a regular at Sumosan before it was ruined by going half Italian and removing favourite dishes I thought I'd try Roka. We had the tasting menu at £88 and it was excellent value - a lot of dishes, a lot of variety and the dessert was a colourful finale - slightly lacking in atmosphere but made up for by brilliant service and, by London standards, tremendous value

    This has to be one of the BEST value for money restaurants in London, certainly pee's all over the likes of Jamie's Italian pants restaurant and Gordon Ramsey's cor blimey how much for larks vomit on toast taster menus. Good food served by well paid good people - optional service charge - you don't have to pay it if you do not wish to the best restaurant I have been to in London for a while - one of my all time top five eats. Not cheap - but worth the money - give it a try

    The food was delicious and the service was fine. The ambience was a bit of a let down though, could have improved with having the music a little quieter. the table was sticky.

    Had heard a lot about this place in the past ... so went there with high expectations and they were more than met ... outstanding food and good service, nice atmosphere! Go for the signature dishes as well , it is worth it!

    Right in the middle of mayfair, Roka has built up a good reputation for outstanding food that isn't just your typical katen sushi fair. From entering the restaurant at our allotted time (two sittings an evening) we were made to feel welcome. Aside from the fact they put us near the toilets / serving hole which meant there was a busy thoroughfare passing our table. When we plumped for the 'premium' tasting menu things went downhill. Our server looked almost crestfallen for some reason. We also went for some sparkling sake, which again our waiter tried to talk us out of (yes, we know it's a small bottle, yes we know we'll only get two glasses each). It was a special treat for the missus, so I was left feeling a little annoyed as I wanted everything to be perfect. I know I'd like the food before it even came, and wasn't disappointed. The first two courses were excellent. Signature yellow tail and yuzu dressing, followed by a sashimi set well presented with fresh wasabi. However, there wasn't enough room on the table to accommodate any of the food to sit between us. Every time a waiter came to the table there was much moving of glasses, bottles, etc... in order to place the food on the table. In the end I just swapped sides for my drink and left one side clear. Unfortunately the service was overall terrible. We would have our food delivered and patiently explained to us (because obviously they must get a lot of tourists who don't know what they're eating). Then we'd have our waiter rush back to our table when we were in the middle of the course and explain it to us again. Then came our lamb course with one set of cutlery between us. I think they were expecting me to eat a lamb cutlet with either my chopsticks (I could, but it would be messy) or my hands. While we were in the middle of our lamb, another waiter came out and started to serve up the black cod and rice, so by the time we came round to eat it, it was cold. Then we had a 20 min wait for the next course. Trying to get a second round of drinks at this point proved a challenge so I could see why the original waiter tried to talk us into having a bigger bottle of sake. There's lots of activity going on, but no-one actually paying any attention. The desert boat was excellent, lots of asian fruits, ice creams and a couple of cakes. I was starting to think before the desert that I'd have to go for a burger on the way home. One we finished the desert, we practically rolled out of the restaurant. We were warned that the desert would take 15mins to arrive which was fine. The rest of the courses arrived when they wanted to, which I'm afraid to say is not Japanese formal style at all. When it came to asking for the bill, I nearly just got up and left because no-one was paying us any attention. No offer of coffee or tea they just left us with a decimated desert boat. I only didn't just walk off because they had my coat. I would go back just for the food, but next time they're not getting my 13.5% yes that's correct, since when did 'optional' service charge go up to 13.5%???

    This is a total experience with tables around an enormous central open kitchen (together with seats directly looking onto the kitchen), fantastic atmosphere and a real buzz to the whole evening.. Vey attentive service (several hot towel breaks during the evening). We were a group of 4, celebrating a big birthday and we took the "seasonal tasting menu" (to work through and choose from the full menu would have been far too demanding) and it was just fabulous (and surprisingly filling for a Japanese restaurant). We enjoyed in particular the miso soup, the mixed sashimi (with freshly scraped wasabi), the tempura prawns, BBQ ribs (best ever!) and the presentation of the final dessert was mind blowing (all served on a massive plate of ice, complete with fresh fruit, berries, mixed sorbets etc). This is a very special restaurant, expensive but worth every dollar.

    I have dined here a number a number of times and it never fails to live up to expectations. Lovely food and wine, great service.

    Roka is somewhere you go to for guaranteed good food and high standard of service. I've been to the Roka Charlotte Street and it delivers on both fronts. Roka Mayfair need to work on the latter - we had to signal for our wine glasses to be filled and by the third time, we told them to bring over our wine to the table so we could refill it ourselves. The response was we can't as that's the only place we keep the wine cool. 🙄????? And he then added "I will keep an eye for it" as if that was such a favour to us and not an expected basic service. I won't recommend Roka Mayfair.

    This is the best Rokka in our opinion and has such a good team of staff who are very helpful and friendly. As for the food it is wide ranging with some fab Sashimi, Sushi, Ribs and Black Cod . Don't even ask about the puddings they are insane.

    I was SO excited for this reservation - had heard so many great things! Reservation for 9.30pm we arrived and were told to wait at the bar. We waited and waited... Ordered a drink... Waited... Asked when we would be seated... waited. EVENTUALLY after being quite pushy about when we were being seated we were seated at 10pm, at a table in the corner, but at least we were seated!! No one served us for a while and eventually we ordered a few things. Had a nice waiter who looked distracted most of the time but was friendly when he did pay us attention. We even had to ask for table water?! The food however was delicious and we were very impressed. We had the Chirashi maki, tiger prawn tempura, california maki all great. We had ribs which were tasty but pretty over cooked and dry. All in all, yes food was delicious but the service was terrible. Considering the incredible Japanese restaurants in London that you could go to instead, I wouldn't go out of my way... Disappointing.

    I've been to the Charlotte Street branch on a previous occasion and I felt that they were trying to get us out as quickly as possible on that occasion. Lunch at this branch however, was a somewhat different affair, not just because lunches are generally quicker but it felt much more relaxed and much less pressured. I get it, I've owned restaurants before, they need to turn tables but here, on this occasion, it was very nice. The food was cooked to perfection and served at a steady pace. For me (it sounds silly) the best thing was the lady serving green tea... after asking for a refill once we were waited on perfectly without having to ask again for a top up. Proper service in my opinion. We had a selection of foods consisting of edamame, sashimi, robata skewers (chicken and beef), lettuce with a ginger sauce and some nigiri. All of which was lovely and no complaints. My only reason for awarding 4 stars is really value for money. Otherwise a lovely, light but filling lunch. :)
