SquareMeal Review of Roka Aldwych

Silver Award

Roka’s brand of high-gloss contemporary Japanese dining is showcased beautifully at its largest branch on Aldwych, where a stylish mix of natural stone, grey timbers and dried green oak creates a subtly sophisticated setting. Like its siblings across the capital, this outlet puts the robata grill centre stage, and many favourite items from Roka’s back catalogue are on display – from tender Korean-spiced lamb cutlets to black cod marinated in yuzu miso. There are also dazzling platters of sushi and sashimi showcasing impeccable sourcing – witness translucent slivers of yellowtail and morsels of sweet-fleshed shrimp with caviar. Elsewhere, top calls range from juicy grilled scallops with a textured wasabi topping to velvety Wagyu beef offset by pickled mushrooms. The high-end list of sakés, global wines and sexy shochu-based cocktails can also be sampled at the elegant bar, while smooth service is a hallmark throughout.

Drinks were amazing, particularly during happy hour and the food was also fabulous too! We went there for a pre theatre drink and meal and the service was excellent. We had a fabulous night out and I can't wait to go back!

I have been to Roka a few times and always find the food amazing, service efficient and the whole experience wonderful! The restaurants are elegant and the quality of ingredients used is outstanding. I think this is consistently the best restaurant in London.
