When it comes to elevating conventional sashimi and sushi dishes, no one can come close to the culinary wizards at Roka Akor. They use a special grilling technique called robatayaki, which essentially sears in flavors and preserves moisture. This style of cooking allows chefs to create visually impressive masterpieces with explosive flavors that practically melt in the mouth.

Plate of TanpuraIn addition to traditional items such as the classic California roll and tuna belly sashimi, you’ll find many unique dishes on the extensive menu. From the spicy hamachi serrano chili roll to the sea urchin nigiri, there is a wide assortment of flavors. You can even choose the chef’s sashimi selection, which features several different flavor and texture options for you to sample.

Appetizing Alternatives

If you’re in the mood for something other than sushi, there are quite a few mouth-watering selections, including seasonal items. Scallops and yuzu shiso with wasabi, Korean-spiced lamb cutlets and prime beef tataki with truffle jus are among the more scrumptious highlights. The restaurant’s signature Japanese-based sauces and marinades boost the yum factor.

Assortiment SeafoodOne of the best features of this elegant restaurant is the bar. Rich wood tones and indirect light give this semi-secluded nook a sense of sophistication. While enjoying the ambiance, you can sample some of the most gratifying sakes and adult beverages available. Happy hour is typically 4-6 p.m., but all-night happy hours occur occasionally.
