Description: Our menu features prime cut steaks, seafood, and vegetables with unique Japanese-inspired marinades and sauces, along with sushi, sashimi, tempura, and extraordinary desserts. The menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal offerings. Roka Akor Scottsdale offers the unparalleled combination of thoughtful design and contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. Roka Akor’s contemporary main dining room provides a stunning backdrop and the centrally located robata grill is the heart of the visual experience. To accommodate all guests needs, Roka Akor Scottsdale also offers a private dining room, private patio and Roka Bar.

I have eaten at Roka Akor many times and it is always an exceptional meal, although the service often leaves something to be desired?!?

The must tries include: the tempura lobster; the Kobe steak; gyuunotataki; nigiri toro and the wasabi tobiko with quail egg.

Always a fun place as a couple or with a group....

Had dinner here on Valentines Day, so it was crowded, and fairly noisy, but not distractingly so. Beautiful, open, modern asian themed restaurant. Having never been here, thought we'd try a little bit of everything on the menu: sushi, rolls, tempura, and the rabata grill items. Every category had items that were both either very good or outstanding, we only had one grilled item that was a bit over-cooked and thus mediocre. The service was good, but they brought us items we didn't order twice (probably since it was so hectic), and so we got to try extra food we didn't order (didn't charge us for them). Overall, we enjoyed our meal and would come here again, but I think I'd just stick to the sushi and rolls next time.

Quite the trendy restaurant in Scottsdale with an upscale customer base. With that said, I've been there twice in the last 3 months and I can't wait to return. Service is excellent; continually checking on your meal and the staff is well-versed with the menu items and preparation.

My enthusiastic recommendation: go for the "tasting" menu. This is a selection of small portions - appetizers/sushi/sashimi/soup/robata grill/dessert. Each and every dish is delicious and always unique. You'll find yourself consistently wondering how is it that each course (6 in total) exceeds your expectations.

Enjoy!

We were looking for somewhere interesting to eat while in Scottsdale and decided to try Roka Akor - we were very happy with our choice! The menu has lots of interesting choices and everything we tried was very high quality. Instead of having entrees we (there were three of us) had a large variety of small plates, including appetizers, sushi, tempura, and skewers. One of us was a vegetarian and there were lots of good options, while the others really enjoyed the sushi and pork belly!

Great bar menu, very limited sushi offerings. Some inventive dishes, not your traditional Japanese restaurant.
