Consistently Very Good

Sushi Roku has maintained a great atmosphere and very good food for over ten years. It has gained popularity with a younger crowd and can be a bit noisy. We feel that the food is not quite at the peak as in previous years, but we left satisfied and full. Service was excellent. We enjoyed an udon... read more

Mother's day midday. The restaurant was not crowded. More than 2/3 of the tables were empty. Six of us sat and only five waters were delivered. We had to ask for another. We ordered and appetizers arrived promptly. Pot stickers were typical fare, still good. Rolls came but not all. One of the entrees was not as ordered. Another came... More

Multiple seating areas allows for your choice of intimate setting or perfect for groups. Service was exceptional and the food was really tasty. A bit pricey but well worth it.

This is trendy place, so I guess this is why they think it's ok to charge so much for some average sushi...just because you want to put truffle oil on everything doesn't make fancy...

We were taken here by friends, because it was their son's favorite venue in Pasadena for Japanese food. We were not disappointed, and in fact liked it so much, we came back for a second dinner a few days later. Among the excellent appetizers included the miso eggplant, sweet miso baked cod and the chicken skewers robata-yaki (the teriyaki sauce... More

trendy location in a european-style (ie no cars) back alley, expensive looking interior (including massive sarsens that were probably placed thru the roof) lots of water and stones to add to the asian feel. the menu mainly focussed on sushi, so if you are not a sushi professional, you could be left a bit helpless. the hot entrees were very...

This place is the best sushi I've ever had & the location is so cool! The lobster roll is just delicious! I will definitely be back very soon.

I used to frequent this restaurant quite a bit. I was surprised that the menu changed, and the prices went up considerably. I ordered my favorite appetizer yellowtail with chilies. The fish was fishy. Then we ordered the ramen soup that was overcooked. Confised ring the price, and other sushi places close by, it wil be awhile before I try... More

Walked in for a quick lunch as I wanted something quick and asian. Great atmosphere and nice decor with terrace seating. As I was a solo diner, I chose to be seated at the Sushi Bar. The sushi counter was manned by Japanese chefs so I thought the sushi must be excellent. I was disappointed. The rice was hard......

We like Japanese rolls, sashimi and sushi. And I must say, with my travels through California, the food and service at Sushi Roku is one of the best. it has a very good vibe and a good place to dine, drink saki, and have fun with family and friends. As its very popular, I always make reservations on open table... More
