“Delicious sushi; should be $$$, not $. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014 via mobile

If you come here knowing what to expect (highly delicious sushi at a moderately high price), you will leave happy. The rice is perfect and the sashimi are all unique and of the purest flavor and texture. You won't even want to mess it up with extra wasabi or shoyu. Just understand that you will walk out spending a minimum of ¥10,000 for a couple, not including drinks.

Having Roku Roku marked as "$ out of $$$$" is misleading, as the only items you can get for a small price are single, a la carte pieces of sushi (which will add up to a HUGE bill very quickly).

“Uninspired, run of the mill sushi spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

I don't see what all the fuss is about. This place lacks verve. And while the quality is very good, it's not excellent.

If you want something a little more memorable, albeit a bit more expensive, try sushi aoki that the concierge in the hotel sent me to. It's about ten minutes walk from the hotel.

“After a long flight, it hit the spot ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

After checking in to our Hotel, we were too tired to go anywhere so we decided to have dinner here. Located on the 6th floor of the Grand Hyatt in Roppongi it served very good sushi. We opted for a ten piece course and added a few a la carte. Service was great, atmosphere was quiet yet fun. Great convenience if your staying at the hotel, I would recommend having concierge book a table or counter during weekends, only because this hotel gets busy. The fish was seasonal and very good. The rice was not what I'm use to tasting in Tokyo, but still good. If I was in the area I would consider eating here, but I would go out of way like other places.
