SquareMeal Review of Roka Charlotte Street

"EXCELLENT"

SquareMeal London Hot 100 2018A Fitzrovia hit since launching in 2004, Roka’s trailblazing modern Japanese cuisine and “sophisticated atmosphere” are still a universal smash with readers. Some enjoy “chilling out”, others love its “romantic vibe”, but the expertly fashioned food is what really turns heads. Most diners are old hands at navigating a menu packed with modern-day classics (black cod in yuzu miso, wafer-thin truffled yellowtail sashimi, scallop and shiso lollipops, baby spinach in creamy sesame dressing) although clued-up staff still offer ever-changing seasonal tips – perhaps grilled cobia fish with mushrooms and truffle, or indulgent Wagyu tartare sushi rolls topped with caviar. The sleek glass-fronted room is all polished wood and industrial ceilings, with in-demand seats ringing the frantic action around the fierce robata grill (mercifully with an efficient extraction system). Prices merit either an expense account, or a very careful eye, so maybe grab a tasting menu to keep bills in check or skip the ostentatious dessert platters. Wine fits the top-end bill, but eye-opening saké and classy, shochu-based cocktails steal the show.

Food + Saké = Harmony

Saké and sushi have long been a great pairing. But did you know that saké goes just as well with a thoughtfully composed cheeseboard, a hearty bowl of pasta or a plate of briny, lemon-doused oysters? In fact, over 500 restaurants in London, many of them non-Japanese, now offer saké on their menus. Click here to find out more.

Amazing Japanese resto, superb food, great quality produce, lovely service, sophisticated atmosphere yet relaxed that you could really chill out. It is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in London.

Roka on Charlotte street still works for glam, taste sensation, cocktail fuelled evenings for a group of couples or with the girls. The main attraction is the food, spot on Japanese …the delectable buttery black cod (just as good as versions in Nobu and Zuma), yummy chicken yakitori, light gyoza, the freshest beautiful sashimi… If you can't get a table up top (smart buzzy restaurant), go to the bar below (Shochu lounge, same high-end Japanese food, buzzier, darker, sexier..). You can always count on Roka to rock your night. I have been 10 times at least and I will keep going. PS not cheap but so worth it for the not so ubiquitous black cod.

Try the butterfish tataki! Its not the most extravagant dish on the menu (thank goodness!) but it is absolutely divine & i haven't had anything like it anywhere else. Amazing! One word of caution – I really like sitting at the bar around the grill but the chefs do shout a lot and seem to be getting louder and louder. Doesn't make for a very relaxed (or intimate) dinner for 2…
