The Dinner Menu

Hot plate offerings include Steamed Edamame, kimchi dumplings, Pork Belly or Crispy Fried Squid. Yellowtail, flame seared salmon or scallops are just a few of the Modern Nigiri choices. And Premium Sashimi & Nigiri options include several tuna options, salmon, yellowtail and amberjack. Or try the Roka Akor in Scottsdale signature deluxe platter for the chef’s selection of seasonal seafood and shellfish.
And if you came for the steak, you won’t be disappointed with any one of the Domestic Wagyu and Japanese Wagyu steak selections. Or try a “Classic” choice: Glazed Pork Ribs or Lamb Cutlets. Seafood choices include Chilean Sea Bass, Alaskan King Crab and their signature Yuzu Miso Marinated Black Cod.
