The big surprise here is the other menu items. The salt and pepper pork and tempura shrimp which come with a tempura veggies outstanding. My wife and I sat down and ordered while watching the line to the fresh harvest grow and couldn't believe all those people passing up this wonderful lunch. I guess, I let the secret out.

My husband and our family really enjoyed the salt & pepper squid, crispy grouper, honey walnut shrimp, and seafood fried rice. The menu includes, soups, small plates, several types of fried rice, lo mein and rice noodle dishes. I am not a Sushi enthusiast, so I ordered the Singapore rice noodles with shrimp, pork and egg with curry sauce. It... More

There is nothing special that makes this place a stand out. Small portions big price. How it is ranked so as far as sushi joints go is beyond me!

Great fun place to go when at the Hard Rock Casino. I love their sushi and fried rice dishes. They have generous portions and everything is made when ordered. Their food is much better than the Asian food in the Hard Rock Food Court resturant.

The cashier's desk had told us the restaurants were all closed at 10:15 on a Saturday, but when we walked upstairs to see for ourselves, Rock n Raw was still open--and they continued seating people the entire time we were there. Service was brusque but efficient, and the food was surprisingly good. We had several sushi rolls, fried rice and... More

First time we're here around July, and this was our second time here for us. My relatives was staying at Hard Rock for their vacation and they invited us for lunch. Both times, at Rock 'n Raw were the same with a little confusing with their service, I thought because they're busy. We ordered Seaweed Salad, Tampa Roll, California Roll,... More

Definitely not the best sushi I've ever had but I happened to get there for happy hour (2-5 pm I think) so all the sushi was half price. This in itself makes food taste better. Most of the sushi was the norm that you would find at other sushi restaurants. The Philly roll was different though. It had beef and... More

Very casual. You sit at long tables with everyone else-so not a romantic place. But the sushi was excellent. So if you like good sushi try it out.

This is truly one of the BEST Asian restaurants we have had the pleasure of eating at! As sushi lovers, my husband & I were very impressed with the freshness & authentic crispy duck and sushi rolls, while our friends chose the tender Teriyaki steak. The service and atmosphere were spot on! A great time was had by all!
