World-conquering Japanese restaurant Roka has sites all over London, including this sleek, sophisticated restaurant in Aldwych. An easy walk from nearby Covent Garden, this central location is ideal for those in search of dependable, delicious Japanese food and smart modern interiors.

The main restaurant is decked out in granite, tanned leather and dark timber - an organic colour palette that makes Roka Aldwych feel very sophisticated. Wooden tables and plush banquettes line one side of the room, and on the other you’ll find a long granite bar set up for counter dining, where guests can see dishes being prepped in real time. At the heart of the restaurant is Roka’s robata grill, where flames roar and lend that intense smokiness to so many of Roka’s most iconic dishes.

The Roka menu has something for everyone, from a wide selection of sushi and sashimi to robata grill dishes, snacks and salads, crispy tempura and more. Many visitors to Roka go just to enjoy some of the best sushi in the capital - Roka’s sushi menu includes everything from simple, classic maki rolls to premium sashimi platters and signature sushi like the tuna tartare with caviar and egg yolk, and smoked eel with sancho pepper dressing.

There’s plenty more to appreciate on the menu, whether its a warming rice hot pot with Japanese mushrooms and mountain vegetables, tiger prawn tempura, or robata grill classics like baby back pork ribs with sansho and cashew nuts, lamb cutlets with Korean spices, or the famous black cod marinated in yuzu miso.

Roka Aldwych also hosts a popular weekend brunch, as well as weekday happy hours where you can enjoy classy cocktails from the bar at a very reasonable price. Cocktails include the refreshing Watermelon Spritz (aperol, watermelon and yuzu, prosecco) and the Roka Negroni (gin, plum sake campari, rose).

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!
