ROKA is an award winning Japanese restaurant, serving exceptional food since 2004.
ROKA restaurants are well-known for their mind-blowing sushi and unique presentation, but with their premium tasting menu costing £90 per person, it’s a spenny option that sits out of reach for the typical Londoner.
Lucky for you, ROKA have an outstanding weekend brunch which lets you experience the best of their menu at just a fraction of the cost! A unique twist on your conventional Sunday brunch, ROKA pull out all the stops to make this a meal to remember!
Roka Weekend Brunch (£59 per person)
ROKA Aldwych offers the delightful Han Setto brunch menu at £59 per person.
- A Bellini on arrival
- Ten Japanese sharing dishes
- One main
- Dessert platter
You’ll be pleased to know that this weekend brunch is also bottomless! Cue the unlimited red or white wine! The waiters don’t hold back either, so you’ll be plenty tippled by the time you get to desert.
TIP: If you want a better foodie experience then don’t go overboard, whoops!
Freshly prepared, you’ll be served ten small plates before your mains arrive, allowing you to experience a huge variety of Japanese cuisine. These were an explosion of flavour, and by far some of the best dishes I’ve ever tasted.
TIP: You can order more of your favourites at no extra cost! The waiters just bring out a smaller portion.
Don’t study the menu too hard, you get one of everything right? So why fuss? Enjoy the experience.
Highlights included the 3 sashimi selection, soba noodle salad, and Japanese pumpkin & sweet potato salad.
To view the full selection of mains, check out ROKA’s Brunch Menu. Meg and I shared the same mains the last two times we’ve been to ROKA and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
The beef is a phenomenal showstopper which was cooked medium rare (a compromise for Meg, I would have preferred it bloody – don’t judge). The ribs are unlike any baby back dish I’ve had before – deliciously salty, plentiful amounts of meat and a completely unique flavour which isn’t spoiled by your typical accompaniment of BBQ sauce.
Would you believe it, you’ve chowed down on a minimum of eleven dishes and copious amounts of booze yet there’s still more to come. By this point you’ll be feeling pretty full and boozy, but ROKA know the best way to top off the experience.
Cue a refreshing feast of exotic fruits, sorbets and chocolate treats!
The desert platter includes star fruit, dragon fruit, lychee as well as coconut sorbet, and panna cotta with blackberry. But my absolute has to be the chocolate Buddha which is accompanied by a glorious filling.
Where is ROKA Aldwych?

Book ROKA For a Special Occasion
Both times we’ve been to ROKA we’ve been celebrating something special. Given that it’s a slightly spenny option, it’s the perfect way to mark an occasion, especially when they do such an amazing job of personalising your desert platter! It was the perfect surprise which Meg has now got into the habit of arranging.
