Like its award-winning London counterpart, Roka Akor Chicago 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.

The name update from Roka to Roka Akor is intended to convey that the North American locations are a reflection of its London predecessor, with its own distinguishing attributes. 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 Chicago also offers a private dining room, private patio and Roka Bar. We offer a unique private dining options and are available for all types of functions.

Roka Akor’s menu features prime cuts of 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.
