Popular contemporary Japanese restaurant ROKA is set to arrive in Kuwait at Waldorf Astoria Kuwait.

Scheduled to open this year, the luxury hotel features 200 deluxe guestrooms. It will be located in The Avenues, real estate developer Mabanee’s notable 360,000 sqm leasable area development and Kuwait’s largest retail, entertainment, and lifestyle destination.

The restaurant’s modern Japanese cuisine centres around the Robata grill. Designed by Noriyoshi Muramatsu, the interiors of ROKA Kuwait will highlight key elements that connect all ROKA restaurants as well as details that are exclusive to Kuwait.

ROKA Kuwait joins an expanding network of the popular restaurant concept, including four in London, one in Dubai, and one soon to arrive in Riyadh.

Emma Banks, vice president, F&B strategy and development, EMEA at Hilton, said:

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Azumi Limited to bring this award-winning Japanese restaurant concept to Waldorf Astoria Kuwait.

“ROKA’s delicious cuisine and welcoming yet energetic ambiance will no doubt make it a sought-after dining destination. We look forward to bringing this wonderful gastronomic experience to our guests.”
