It wasn't the same.

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... read 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

I'd visit every thursday during lunch or dinner. They have a nice lunch Bento Box, but some of my favorite sushi picks are: Shima Roll, Lobster Roll, Uni, Albacore, The front patio area has a great look and feel. Perfect for dates as well.

I was never a big fan of sushi until I discovered Sushi Roku. The difference? Fresh fish, great atmosphere, good to great service. I highly recommend Sushi Roku for dating, business meals, friends, or even solo. Recommend the Katana Roll for those who like tuna and yellow tell combined.

We visited prior to the Man-U vs Galaxy football match and it was a happy hour menu which is restricted to the open seating area or the lounge/bar area,you can not order from the happy hour menu in the dinning room. As the restaurant got more crowded the service diminished and it didn't appear they anticipated a crowd ( Rose... More

It was a modernized sushi restaurant. Ambience is nice. Food could be better but it's not bad. Service was good. They validate parking.

Had dinner here with a coworker on a recent visit to Pasadena. Not surprised by the good quality sushi, but very surprised by the value. We expected some higher prices due to the location but found prices quite reasonable. Wide selection of sushi and rolls. Service was prompt and helpful, and the restaurant was very well designed to break people... More

As others have noted here, this place is consistently good. The real value here is the lunch menu, when they offer a fabulous kid's Bento box that our little ones really love. We've been coming here for years, and it's a family favorite - so much so that our kids refer to it as "Miso Soup" instead of Roku. They've... More
