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.

    Terrible! 0predominantly male staff were unfriendly and intrusive in an aggressive way and everything was extremely rushed - they brought main course before we had even finished our starters and continually interrupted clearing dishes. I felt we were on a conveyor belt and they wanted to get us out of there as soon as possible! Disappointing as the food was good - won’t be returning!

    Excellent restaurant, you can’t fault the service and atmosphere. However when the restaurant was confirming booking, I had requested something special for my anniversary. Was told my wife would get a happy anniversary message with the dessert, unfortunately this did not happen. Besides that was excellent sushi, presented well plus the staff were top class and professional

    I had the tasting menu with bubbles for 39 pounds. Great value of money. Miso cod was delicious, also sashimi was fresh and very tasty. As an addition I ordered tuna carpaccio salad-marinated. Really tasty. Service was outstanding; everything was perfect.

    A busy, vibrant atmosphere. The service was impeccable as was the food and a very palatable dry white Japanese wine recommended by the sommelier. We were very pleased that plenty of time was left between courses which meant we had a very relaxed and enjoyable lunch. We shall return before too long.

    Beautiful, fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked. The set meals gave us a range of dishes to try that we ended fighting over. And all with excellent service.

    My wife and I came for our wedding anniversary - was a really great night out from start to finish. Excellent location and smart venue with an air of calm on arriving. Amazing cocktails followed by a big menu with a huge choice. Tempra prawns and the chicken hotpot were stand out selections but were eclipsed by an outstanding desert with ice cream and tonka beans. Expensive but well worth the trip
