London’s award winning Japanese restaurant.
Over the last year I have developed a love for Japanese food and so this is a restaurant I love to come to for lunch and dinner.
The staff here are friendly yet very professional which I find is very important. Although I am a sushi lover I still can’t quite get to grips with chopsticks! The waiter tried to teach me but for some reason I just can’t manage to use them! The staff will happily give you a fork but, I always use chopstick helpers – which are probably meant for children, but nevermind!
There are 4 Roka restaurants in total in London, I mostly visit the one in Charlotte Street and Aldwych, there other restaurants are in Canary Wharf and Mayfair.
A few things off the menu I would recommend;
Lamb Cutlets with Korean spices
Scallop skewers with wasabi and shiso
Avocado Maki with crispy prawn
I also had an interesting and very tasty squid dish the last time I went to Roka Charlotte Street as seen in the image below. The presentation of all dishes are to a very high standard.
Roka also does special weekend brunch/lunch and pre-theatre menus which I’ve not personally tried but I’ve heard are very good value for money.
Canary Wharf weekened brunch is £49pp -with a selection of drinks and dishes you can choose from.
