Roka is a really nice place, very buzzing and for the seemingly 'rich and hip'. I say that because the food is pretty pricey but i'm not sure the taste warrants the expense. I had really high hopes for Roka because it looked so lovely (and always has a queue outside) but I guess you can't judge a book by it's cover. I would say that for the price they should have a better variety of dishes on the menu. The cocktails are pretty good, and since I don't drink they gave me a wonderfully 'mocktail'. The service was also really nice, and the waiters extremely helpful, but ultimately I went there to eat... and the food just didn't impress.


Having been to a few of their other branches I have to say that the cocktails here weren't that great I'm afraid.

They just lacked the finesse and expertise their Mayfair spot has. So yeah.. I'd happily return but to their other branches.

I visited Roka on Sunday for a brunch that costs £49 per person. There is a Buffett of food and then you also get a main. The service is very good but the ambient is too smart and I didn't feel comfortable. Also the seating plan is not very good, I was stuck between two tables and my neighbours were listening to my conversation, not very nice.

The main was really good but the Buffett was disappointing, not so much sushi, a lot of salads you can find everywhere and the grilled meat was full of fat. 


My favourite Japanese brunch place, food is always fresh and authentic. Never disappointed whenever I visit. Always try to make a booking as the place is usually packed. Love the desserts as well surprisingly. Definitely worth trying and highly recommended!

I have been to this Roka on a number of occasions. Sometimes it has been for dinner and others for brunch. Considering this place is located in canary wharf and on the weekends is usually a ghost town, this place is always rocking and busy! The brunch menu is great value for money and brilliant for a girls lunch or special occasion! They do fantastic cocktails as well! 

Love this restaurant in Canary Wharf. Great food, great ambience. Runs around £100pp for the premium tasting menu plus drinks, tips, etc. which is a bargain. Fridays they have an all you can imbibe champagne tasting menu. The porrige is about the only let down, otherwise you really can't go wrong! Highly recommended!
