We have never been disappointed in the freshness and quality of the sushi at Tokoro, especially the yellowtail and salmon. Countless times we've ordered platters for parties at our home and always are asked where we got the amazing sushi.

I've been to this restaurant many times in the past 3 years I've been in South Pasadena. I love the service, the seafood is fresh and it's never crowded or noisy so I can really enjoy the company, the food and the ambiance.

This is a typical americanized Japanese restaurant. A recent take out order was a complete disaster. The food was cold and the service what the slow. To their credit, they have a larger specialty rolls menu.

Tokoro is a solid sushi restaurant also serving other mainstream Japanese meals such as Udon and teriyaki. The sushi is very good and there are many choices. This is certainly an informal place but it is worth the visit. Parking is located in the back lot and it can get crowded on Fridays and weekends. Plenty of sushi restaurants around... More

Locals flock to this place for resonable tastey sushi selections all served with wonderful servers. Fresh fish and a variety of other traditional Japanese standard dishes severed daily in South Pasadena. Happy hour Monday thru Thursday: buy one beer or house sake and get the second free. Brown rice available too.

We sometimes go to Tokoro just for a change of pace. We usually go to Z Sushi in Alhambra. Tokoro is cheaper, but the quality of sushi is sometimes not so great. Sometimes we get lucky, and it's great, but we also got some not so fresh sushi here half the time. That makes us not want to go here... More
