Restaurant description

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.

    Excellent service! Food was fresh and so much choice. Would return. Only disappontment was they did not honour happy hour when you transferred From bar to the restaurant. Seemed a little harsh.

    Got there 15 minutes prior to our booking time yet still made to wait almost 15 minutes after that. Once ready the waiter who showed us to our seat seemed quite impatient and perhaps even frustrated, ironically. Nevertheless the food was great and the following waiter who attended us for the rest of the night was very attentive and knowledgeable.

    The food was excellent, the service was great, and the ambience very nice. The staff were very friendly and helpful in ensuring that my lactose and gluten intolerant daughter was catered to. We had a lovely time.

    Overall - very premium service and cuisine, but unlike places in the similar price category, the food really matches the quality of interior and presentation. Each course was special, and gave an impression of reinvention. Roka far exceeded the expectations - we had set menu (£44) + desserts, and were very impressed with both taste and presentation. Sushi wee fantastic, tempura too and even miso soup was different from any others. Main course was good as well. On desserts, cheesecake had interesting layout but the chocolate sundae was mind blowing - nuts with banana ice-cream make an unforgettable combination (although the rest of the dessert was so-so). The atmosphere is great, and we were served very fast.
