Nice place for a drink or Happy Hour. Food looks excellent too.

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.

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

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

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

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 style soup, sushi... 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...
