Great location in old town Pasadena, it's located in the court yard by other restaurants and movie theater, their lunch combos are great with fair pricing, great staff including the manager who always there, I go there with friends often because it's a great place to have business lunch. They have indoor and outdoor dining.

Sorry to be negative but this place is over rated, over priced and over flavored! The interior is nice and the location is very good in Old Towne but it's not a very good value. Miso soup was $4.50???!!! I am used to high prices since I live in Tokyo but it wasn't even good miso soup. I actually went... More

Amazing atmosphere in this sushi restaurant in Old town Pasadena. Low lights, open kitchen. We tried a couple of different rolls, very tasty. Nice waitresses. Bit expensive: about 35 $ each for edamame, two rolls plates, one beer and a glass of fountain water.

I love sushi roku. By far one of my favorite sushi restaurants. I used to goto the Santa Monica location and that's where I first fell in love with this place. My boyfriend and I went to this location on my birthday and I loved the lounge area. This place was fabulous and the food was just as amazing as... More

A beautiful restaurant that any sushi lover with enjoy. There is something for others as well. They serve a great lunch bento box and have special sushi so you won't find everywhere. The bar is lovely and comfortable. They have outside and patio Dino g as well as inside.

I've always liked Sushi Roku's Los Angeles locations -- including the gorgeous new, redesigned one at the end of the Sunset Strip. Liked this one very much, too! Great for dates. A bit hard on the wallet, though.

I am vegetarian and ordered their lunch bento box with their eggplant dish and veggie tempura, that came with salad and miso soup as well. The eggplant dish was excellent, and nice miso soup. Tempura is typical tempura, but nothing's wrong with that.

If you wanted and over priced small portion place this is it...we eat only sashimi and the portion sizes are very small, the quality was hit or miss and the service average for a high end place

My girlfriend is Japanese and she is very picky about oriental restaurants. We sat at the sushi counter and admired the chefs handiwork. The sushi was excellent, especially the soft tuna. We also had some tempura and dim sum. All very enjoyable. Good service and not bad value for money. Busy and atmospheric.

We love sushi roku but especially on a Monday night during happy hour. They have a set menu during happy hour but each of the items on the menu is delicious. Recommend the popcorn shrimp, albacore and California rolls. It's not the cheapest but it is the best. Ambience is lovely - the main restaurant overlooks the preparation area of... More
