What is the first thing that comes to mind about Charcoal based BBQ; the unpleasant feeling of smoke both from the charcoal and the grilled food that engulf your entire body after the meal. But here at ROCKU Yakiniku Japanese Charcoal Grill 1 Utama Shopping Centre located at Lot F355/356/357 1st Floor RainForest No.1 Lebuh Bandar Utama Bandar Utama Petaling Jaya Selangor; they have a special system that will make a barbecue meal; a pleasant dining experience as you will find out later.
As most of us know that Charcoal BBQ Grill is the most authentic and flavourful method to grill ny type of fresh food (if perfectly done) as it will exudes the right balance of smokey taste and aroma to the meat or vegetables. Here at Rocku Yakiniku there is no chimney like structure used to extract the smoke but it is using a vacuum system that sucks out the smoke at the side of the BBQ stove; making it a very pleasant and comfortable way to eat BBQ in the comfort of an air condition environment.
Another specialty in dining at Rocku Yakiniku; is that in the evening from 7pm to 11pm daily; you will be entertained by a Live Singing Performance serenading popular songs while you enjoy barbecuing your meals. The concept of entertainment cum dining experience enables you to dine and wine in a comfortable environment while the enjoying the numbers that are belted out by the singers.
During weekends there are also special Live entertainment happening from 1pm – 4pm; and there are special Magic show performance on Saturday too.

For the fresh BBQ item, you can ordered either ala-carte or as a platter, we started with the Seafood Platter which consists of Prawns, Squid, Mussels & Scallops. You can also ordered it individually if you have preference for the different type of seafood of your choice.
Next, we ordered the Pork Platter which has Pork Belly, Pork Collar & Pork Bacon. Each individual order comes with 3 pieces of the meat. As it is cut into a very thin slice; it does not take much effort to barbecue these meat to right balance of smoky aroma blended with the natural taste of the meat.
We love the pork bacon as it has that special salty charcoal aroma taste after being put onto the BBQ pit.
