Fine but nothing to rave about. My ramen had overly spicy broth and unpleasantly fatty pork, not in the unctuous delicious way it ought to be but in a bands of fat separating tough meat way. Edamame was brown and barely warm.

Very fresh and creative sushi and Japanese food in the heart of santa Monica. A very popular place among both the local and the visiting tourists.

I'm a very basic sushi lover so the menu overwhelmed me when I first walked in, the wait staff were very accommodating getting us a table without a reservation and explaining the menu to us, would have liked more than just Japanese beers which is basically all they sold but drank soft drinks Instead as wine was expensive. My friends... More

We went 3 times to Sushi Roku recommended by the concierge of the hotel Casa del Mar. 1st time, alone, I did my own choices when I saw very attractive dishes being served to the tables around. Sitted at the japanese bar, I asked to the chef to prepare something of his choice for me. I had an exquisite sea... More

Our lunch was average - we ordered the Katana Roll and the Makoto Roll - both were just OK. There are so many other amazing Sushi places in LA that I would not recommend this as your first stop.

Sushi Roku is a chain restaurant targeting young adults over 21 (drinking age), based on my experience there. It serves rolls and things, but please don't think that this is Japanese sushi.

The sushi is very average. It's a party scene here and always very busy. The service is average. They make the sushi with a lot of rice which is not my favorite way to have sushi

Our server was very attentive, helpful, and even took off a dish that we didn't like. Sushi was ok, but the fish we tried (ahi, yellowtail, etc) was generally very bland. Lots of sauces used on the dishes too (to make up for lack of flavor of fish?) which is not my thing. Overrated from my point of view. Won't... More

Went there with a group of friends for the first time. The service was great, very friendly staff and above all, wonderful sushi. A wide variety of sushi and sashimi beautifully presented. We'll be back. The restaurant is right on Ocean Ave with beautiful views of the beach.
