Roka AldwychOne of two new Roka restaurants to open in 2014, Roka Aldwych occupies a huge space with over 150 covers both at the bar and in the restaurant. Offering a unique style of contemporary Japanese robatayaki cuisine with the robata grill located in the heart of the restaurant, Roka has built up a reputation for excellent casual yet up-market dining, smooth service and a western-friendly take on Japanese food. Stand out dishes include sashimi platter served in a giant granite bowl filled with crushed ice, skewered scallops with wasabi cream, black cod marinated in Yuzu miso, crab and crayfish dumplings, Korean spiced lamb cutlets, and (for those with deep pockets) Wagyu beef. Deserts include the five inch high chocolate mousse with a Buddha face which comes accompanied by exotic fruits. Aldwych House, previously an office block, has been designed by Claudio Silvestrin, the man behind L'anima and Princi London. Roka Aldwych and Roka Mayfair both opened in 2014 bringing the total number of Rainer Becker's contemporary Japanese restaurants in London to four, along with the original Roka Charlotte Street and Roka Canary Wharf.
