What a great bottomless brunch.. on the more pricey side of brunches but well worth it for the amount and quality of the food you get ! Option for bottomless prosecco, red or white wine too which was great and regularly topped up.
Whilst Roka don't currently have a vegan tasting menu, the staff were so helpful at advising on what could be made vegan and arranged for these dishes to be served at the same time as the tasting menu courses. Thanks so much to Adrian at...the Aldwych branch for going above and beyond to ensure I didn't miss out :)More
We had a bottomless brunch served by Marcus who was so professional and assertive, would definitely return. The food was to expectation and explained. Thank you Marcus to the birthday treatment! Thank you.
I used to love Roka but we went last night and the food was simply not upto scratch.
We were using the Eat Out To Help out Scheme but a few things stood out:
(1.) The Dessert platter was a huge let down (the central...ice cream was especially bland).
(2.) Service took a while to come along and I always feel the dishes weren't staggered well (we received our starter after a main).
(3.) I remember Roka used to have excellent food; I hadn't been for 3 years but I would honestly not go again (I used to once a month).More
We went on a weekday evening and we were temperature checked on entry.
The restaurant was about 35% of capacity and the tables were spaced out. There was one group of rowdy men who'd not leant manners, but hey, it was probably the first time...ever they were dining out, so we excused their loudness.
Because it was quiet, it did lack a bit of the atmosphere but that can be a good thing to those who prefer tranquility, but we had the men I mentioned.
I did feel that the food quality was lacking a bit - the Tiger Prawn tempura and the hot pot (Truffle Kamameshi) wasn't quite as good as before though we're comparing the Kamameshi with another rice hot pot we had previously. I feel that because they're catering for the take-away market, they're compromising a little. This is why I give it 4/5.
The menu is broader than the one on the website.
I would say, without being rude, that you're better off at Sticks and Sushi than Roka Aldwych.
I've been to Roka Canary Wharf and Roka Mayfair pre-corona and they were good experiences.
Service was good.More
Came here for a brunch with friends on the Sunday before the lockdown was announced. The restaurant is lovely inside and the service was fantastic, like it always is! We had the Sunday brunch menu which is a selection of different starters and a mains...dish each, with unlimited Prosecco throughout the meal. All of the food was delicious and we all left the restaurant feeling full and quite merry. I was extremely happy we managed to get this brunch in before the lockdown started and I hope Roka survives these testing times and still manages to provide these brunches in the futureMore
Had the beer time yesterday for brunch. Temperature taken on arrival due to covid. Tables were well spaced out and the food was outstanding. The services was fabulous and our glasses were always topped it. Never ran dry once.
I booked for next month as...I was leaving.
Roka Canary Wharf. Thank you so muchMore

Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to
these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
