Surprised that this restaurant is rated in the 80's here on TA.

My girlfriend is Japanese and she is very picky about oriental restaurants. We sat at the sushi counter and admired the chefs handiwork. The sushi was excellent, especially the soft tuna. We also had some tempura and dim sum. All very enjoyable. Good service and not bad value for money. Busy and... read more

We love sushi roku but especially on a Monday night during happy hour. They have a set menu during happy hour but each of the items on the menu is delicious. Recommend the popcorn shrimp, albacore and California rolls. It's not the cheapest but it is the best. Ambience is lovely - the main restaurant overlooks the preparation area of... More

This really is an upscale sushi place that is definitely suitable for a special occasion. The freshest of fish from around the globe, together with nontraditional ingredients such as cheese, black truffles and jalapenos make for a wonderful contemporary take on Japanese fare. The menu, selection of wines, beers and sakes is extensive. You won't be disappointed.

We're frequent Sushi Roku every couple months, but we happened to visit twice this week. The fact that they were celebrating their anniversary didn't hurt since all food items were half off at dinner. :) We went on Sunday and Wednesday, both days were packed with people, but the atmosphere was still nice and very energetic. The music selection is... More

There is valet parking around the corner on Union, a short walk. They have nice outside seating and the entire restaurant is lovely. We sat at the sushi bar. Good sushi, sometimes great sushi and good service. Excellent saki choices. We really liked it, good quality and presentation. Cannot rate it a 5 ..... too pricey and not as good... More

OMG, just the name of this place starts making my mouth water! Hands down, one of the best sushi places in Old Town Pasa! Loved the atmosphere as well! Really good customer service :)

The menu is strict but the food is unbelievable. The portions are tiny and expensive. The restaurant is beautiful.

Stopped in for a drink, sorry we already had dinner. We sat outside in the lounge area which is very nice at night with good people watching. The smell of the food was making my mouth water. Next time I won't eat first. Service excellent.

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I liked enough the first time to return. The setting is in a pleasant courtyard in Old Pasadena. Once inside the decor suggests a very hip, evening lounge kind of place. It seems a nice place for evening cocktails but I have only been there for lunch. I liked the decor, particularly... More

We walked by this restaurant in a quiet courtyard setting after some shopping in the Old Pasadena. The service was kind of slow showing the restaurant was a bit short-staffed. However, the food was fine and the quantity was good for a casual light lunch. My lunch combo included 6 pieces of sushi, salad,two pieces of miso cod, but the... More
