I absolutely love Japanese food, and so Roka is one of my favourite London Restaurants. My boyfriend and I go as often as we can. They are the best for robata grill, fantastic sushi and great cocktails; as a result, they are an award-winning brand. Roka has a few London locations, I’ve been to their Aldwych and Canary Wharf restaurants which both have very fresh interiors and decor.
In particular, I really rate the bottomless brunch offering at Aldwych. For example, for £45 per person, you can enjoy 10 small plates, a main, a dessert platter, a bellini and unlimited wine. The bottomless brunch was exceptional. I especially liked the gyozas, which were well stuffed. The salmon teriyaki & the black cod mains were terrific. Lastly, the dessert platter was extraordinary. I loved that it had lots of mini dessert options with the fresh fruit, chocolate matcha cake, mochi ice cream and refreshing sorbet. It was also gorgeous and very Instagrammable.
Overall, Roka is a favourite restaurant of mine for the fantastic quality Japanese food, fun modern dynamic and great value bottomless brunch. I really recommend this one for anyone visiting London. I can’t want to go again for brunch!
