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.

    Great evening, great food, always good service. Star menu (£39) can leave you still a little hungry so we had to order another dish however the star menu is great value!

    Glamorous restaurant serving delicious fusion food. The manageress remembered a glitch on my previous visit and gave us a dessert platter which was generous and stunning.

    We went in with high expectations and left pretty disappointed. We had the set menu, and while the sushi course was mediocre, the rest of the food was well cooked, well presented and tasted very good. Service was a mess; the courses were brought in the wrong order, and a fresh main course - which we left untouched while we waited for and then ate tempura - was not brought, so the lamb was cold. Surprisingly, none of this was taken off the bill nor a free drink or course offered. In fact, we were charged all the supplements for an extra side dish and dessert. We won't be going back.
