Had the £33 special with a glass of bubbles. Food excellent arriving at a good pace and a nice rest before the mains. The highlight were the deserts. Difficult making a choice but both selections were stunning. All dishes very tasty and service very good. Thoroughly recommended!

A super-slick hideaway and the 4th outpost from the renowned Japanese restaurant fleet, ROKA Aldwych specialises in contemporary Japanese cuisine. The central robata grill is the dining room’s focal point, where diners are able to watch the chefs in action.

The diverse ROKA menu is led by beautifully fresh sushi, rice dishes and tempura, as well as sizzling meats and fish from the robata grill. Enjoy luxurious options like lamb cutlets with Korean spices, or sea bream with miso and red onion. ROKA’s intricately-crafted desserts include cotton-soft cheesecake with grilled pear and cream cheese ice cream.

The bar at ROKA in London boasts a list of exotic, tropical-inspired cocktail mixes, served in hand-made clay vessels. Offsetting the open kitchen, the earthy dining room is decked out in leather, polished timber and porphyry stone.

A hot-property restaurant, ROKA Aldwych features interior design from Rainer Becker and Claudio Silvestrin. Covent Garden Tube Station is a 9-minute walk away.

    Disappointing.

  • ((((( 24 March 2017 by Katarina Kljajic from London

    INCREDIBLE! I have been four times now with this deal. The service is incredible.
    We didn't eat sashimi so they swapped it for us and the food is just unbelviable.
    Thank you for a lovely evening Roka.

    We (couple in our 30's) had a lovely dinner here last night. The food and service were both excellent. The dishes were beautifully presented and so tasty.

    It was their standard pre theatre £33 meal so no actual benefit to booking via bookatable.

    Only negatives - It was quite hard to hold a conversation as it is very noisy. It was quite cold and the 2 person tables were close together so it was difficult to squeeze in!

    This a very busy and noisy restaurant. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were efficient and helpful. I would dine here again, just to try all the things that I saw other diners eating. The desserts were out of this world, although I didn't really have room??

    It was our second visit to the restaurant for the same occasion - my husband's birthday. First time we went there, the food blew us away! So tasty that we couldn't stop talking about it. This time round, it was exactly the same.. so tasty! 4 different starters were so enjoyable and delicious and the main were irresistibly tasty! The rice was so nicely cooked and complimenting the main dish. The waiter was so helpful to recommended us a perfect kind of wine. Although the drink was pricey, tasted so nice.
    They didn't forget my request to put the birthday message for my husband as well!
    It was a wonderful experience and we'd love to go back to have the same deal again!
    It is a very good deal. The restaurant is also trendy atmosphere and chic Japanese interior decoration which we love.

    Friendly welcoming, nice bar, interesting cocktails, minimal design, open kitchen is always a plus.
    My daughter and I visited and we chose both menus to taste it all. There was a variety of starters which were all delicious. For mains we chose the chicken from one menu and the steak from the other. We loved the chicken. It was spiced to excellence. The steak could be more tender, its sauce was saving it. Desserts were nice. The cheeseake was really good.

    We had a wonderful meal here. Dining at 5.30pm the waiters were very attentive. By 6.45pm the place was packed. Food was great and ambience was buzzy.

    Perfect food

  • (((** 12 March 2017 by John Palmer from London

    It was an enjoyable experience. The quality of the food was good with only one glaring exception. The quality of the rise was not good and was quite unlike the rice I have ever been served in Japan or in Japanese restaurants elsewhere.
