“Sublime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Doubler quatre étoiles (kind of like double secret probation except no one gets spanked) to the Head Chef and Sous Chef at the sushi bar........I don't know what some of the concoctions were, but they were.........sublime. There's that word again!

Try the Rock Sake as a perfect compliment to the sushi. Nigori - unfiltered sake - is the original sake made back in the day before the fermentation process was perfected. If you haven't had sushi with unfiltered sake, you don't know sublime.

And there endeth the lesson, Grasshopper.

“Great sushi, great location, expensive price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

The service was so nice and attentive, and the location and interior are beautiful. I enjoyed my sake, miso soup, and sushi very much. The sushi fish was very fresh and the rice was a great texture. It was expensive, but I do believe it was worth it. I had a very enjoyable meal.

“Fun hip Sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Roku has every thing you want from a Sushi joint, well prepared fresh sushi dishes in a fun welcoming environment. I sat at the Sushi bar so was provided with good banter from the chefs whilst they prepared my food.

The staff where very friendly and attentive and willing to help you make the right choices from the good sized menu.

My tip, try the spicy scallop sushi roll.

Good sushi, but a little expensive. The waitress made us feel like we werent glamorous enough for her, but she was still helpful and service was great!

“Loved It!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

The sushi here is amazing, and the service was really good! It is a little bit pricey, but well worth it. The restaurant is a little bit loud, but not horrible. Overall, if you are a fan of sushi, you must go to Sushi Roku!!
