What an incredible dining experience!Everything we ordered was mouth watering delicious and the great service put this place over the top! Our server had excellent recommendations and was very knowledgeable on the menu.
The beef tataki was OUTSTANDING as well as the cooked to perfection wagyu beef filet. We also devoured the Crispy Prawn and Chirashi and Hamachi Serrano Chili maki rolls. They were unique and full of flavor!
Do not leave there without trying their amazing green tea custard with caramelized bananas and whiskey caramel! A wonderful way to top off an already incredible meal.
Huge shoutout to the manager Ben M, who went above and beyond to ensure we had an amazing time.
We will 100% be dining here again on our next trip to Chicago!

One of the best Japanese meals we’ve had. From the moment we were met at the desk the service was exceptional. Our server Casey was knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful. Food was impeccably finished and delicious. Was fun to watch the head chef finish and approve every single dish before it was pr sent a to his diners. From the sushi’s to entrees all were amazing.

We came for a drink and a snack, but ended up ordering so many small dishes that it compared to a full dinner. We thought we knew the taste of Asian food, but at Roka Akor they succeed in bringing it to the next level!

My wife and I splurged and got the Omakase Decadent and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Great personal service in an up-tempo lively environment.
