About Roka Akor
Roka Akor brings an unparalleled combination of thoughtful design and contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine to four locations across the U.S., including Scottsdale, AZ, San Francisco, and Chicago and Skokie, IL. 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. Managed by JNK Concepts, Roka Akor’s menu changes seasonally, including a rotating selection of prime-cut steaks, seafood, and vegetables with Japanese-inspired marinades and sauces, along with sushi and sashimi. The restaurant’s design features a centrally located robata grill that provides the heart of the visual experience, surrounded by rich wood décor and sleek lighting.
