What the Food Critics are Saying

“This high-profile robata grill and sushi specialist (with other U.S. and international branches) brings contemporary upscale Japanese fare (both raw and cooked) and plenty of eye candy to Downtown's Jackson Square; the ultramodern dining room is anchored by a central open charcoal grill where guests can watch the prime steaks and flown-in-fresh fish being prepared…” - Zagat

From the Chef

“My absolute favorite [dish] is the Mendocino uni with chicharrones, and chive blossoms. It shows San Francisco as the melting pot it is. All local product, and the chicharrones are so much fun, right from the Mission. It takes the stuffiness out of the dish, you know.” – Chef Roman Petry


Like its award-winning London counterpart, Roka Akor’s contemporary interior exudes both elegance and comfort. The open, airy dining space is finished almost entirely in textured blonde woods with a prominent open kitchen and robata grill at the heart of the visual experience.

On the Side

The name Roka Akor is derived from two words: RO, meaning hearth, and KA, meaning burning fire.
