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.
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.
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!
