This was an amazing experience the staff are amazing really on the ball and Edward the wine buff was so nice and really knowledgeable. Food was stunning to see and fabulous to eat, melt in the mouth steak and tender lamb. Sashimi was delious fresh and beautiful. It was well worth a visit I real treat. Thank you.

I took my girlfriend to Roka Aldwych for her birthday. What a lovely place was. We had an amazing time there. We had a tasting menu and a bottle of champagne. First we thought it's not going to be enough. After cabbage, couple of crab, sashimi, dumplings, teryaki salmon and lemon grass chicken. The chicken was delicious but bit too much at the end. The end we had a nice selection of fruits, sorbet and ice cream with "happy birthday" on the leaf. The best is they pay attention about the details. It's really important. Definitely worth it. Of course it's expensive but you will get what you pay for.

We thoroughly enjoyed almost everything we had, but the kampachi salad was outstanding - one of the very best dishes I have ever eaten. Honourable mentions also to the gyoza and the baby chicken. Roka is quite pricey, but worth exploring because it offers some unique food experiences.

Came here for a nice dinner! Nice place with delicious food.

From the sushi all the way through to desert it was delicious! Only downside is that the lighting is too dark and music too loud so your shouting to your other half on the other side of the table which isn't great.

Apart from this sushi was fantastic as you can see on the photos. Staff friendly.

I would prefer the Buddha desert to be every night not just only Saturday and Sunday which is a shame and should be improved for more days in the week!

We may just go back though just for this!

Stunning taste experience. Friendly staff. We ordered us diagonally through the menu, miso, tempura, Maki, nigiri, also o'toro and finally steak, all in sharing mode. The toro quality was very good, but personally I prefer the more fine marpled pieces. All in all it was an exciting taste adventure of which we will think for long about it. Well, the price level is painful but what you got for it is worth it.
