I'm from the USA, where sushi is a passion. I'm pleased to say that Roka, though not strictly a Japanese menu, serves lovely innovative food in a charming and friendly setting. Service was instructive as well as attentive, with the waiter steering our choices to the freshest and best of the day. The sashimi first, although quite modest in quantity for the £28 price, was totally fresh and beautifully plated. The lamb chops with Korean spices, which I had never before encountered in a Japanese restaurant, was so good that we fought over the last piece. Even the vegetables, which usually receive little attention from the chef, we're beautifully grilled and sauced, and one portion serves two generously. The cooking staff, who perform before your eyes, are young and energetic and clearly are proud of their work, as they should be.
As is in general the case with Japanese restaurants, the prices are rather steep owing to the high ingredient costs, but in this case you get very good value for your money.
It is unique. It is very good. You will certainly have an enjoyable meal.
