Dazzling robata grill cuisine in Mayfair

One of four Roka's across the capital, the Mayfair outfit is as pulsating and downright cool as all the others. Just a short distance from Oxford Street, it's a stylish contemporary space of natural wood, steel, concrete and acres of glass, with a Japanese robatayaki charcoal grill at the heart of everything (grab a seat at the counter to feel the full force). Wherever you sit, the eager service team run the show with charm and bags of energy. A tasting menu takes away the need to make a decision. Top-notch sushi and sashimi (California maki, say, with crab and avocado) shouldn't be missed, classic tempura include a tiger prawn version, black cod, crab and crayfish are packed into tasty fried dumplings, and be aware that plates arrive as when they're ready and the idea is that you share stuff with your dining companion. From the robata grill comes spiced chicken wings, or black cod marinated in yuzu miso, and there's no lack of luxury ingredients such as foie gras, Wagyu beef and caviar. Desserts show both Asian and European sensibilities, such as an almond cake that is served with cherry ripple ice cream and crispy lotus, or dark chocolate and green tea pudding.
