Expert review of Roka
There are no surprises in that the styling is minimalist - this is a Japanese restaurant, after all. But where they've saved on the decor, they've gone all out on the food itself. Hong Kong's first dining out treat of choice is nearly always Japanese - hence the enduring popularity of this super central eatery.
Wander where you will on the menu, and it's very hard to go wrong. Red miso soup, prawn and black cod dumplings, lamb cutlet with hot pepper spices - all turned out nigh perfectly. Honeycomb ice cream tops things off nicely.
Roka loosely translates as "a fire burning warmly in a hearth", and something of that atmosphere is discernible here.
Service is matey and un-condescending; if you are a novice at pairing sake with food, just ask.
It's inside a major shopping mall, so expect plenty of ladies who shop then lunch, et al.
Reckon on HK$500 per person, excluding alcohol.
A counter round the robata grill gets you to the heart of the action.
