Unfortunately the slow service and long gaps between bringing out entree orders overshadowed the mostly tasty dishes ( Truffle butter edamame and dynamite crab roll delicious... the sea urchin sashimi: fishy, mushy). Not a full restaurant during our two hour Sunday evening dinner. So why the poor service? Too many other excellent sushi/sashimi restaurants choices in the area to revisit... More

Wait staff was terrific! We really enjoyed everything we ordered. From the Seaweed Salad and Edamame to the sushi...all were fantastic! Even had room for desert. The bread pudding was awesome! 5 stars would have been given if not for the main course coming out a few minutes after the appetizers and seating comfort. Would we go back again? Certainly.... More

Hot Sake and Edamame.. but that's it.. actual rolls and sushi are a little on the expensive side.. classy decor and food tasted as you can expect for a good sushi place. Repeat visit? Nah..

Have been here twice just to make sure my first time wasn't a fluke. Sat at the sushi bar both times. The chefs are very good. We just asked them to make us a few of what they thought was good -- omakase style. The sushi was wonderful. Most did not need any soy sauce at all. They even have... More

After many years of being away from the area I dropped by to catch up with friends. Was glad to see the yellowtail sashimi was still on the menu. Delicious! Fantastic service, and well executed menu all around. Great wine list.

I visited this place because it was rated as a top ten by USA Today Newspaper. The Sushi was very good, but the service left me with a very bad impression of the place. OK, I am not a famous person. I am not a movie star, sports figure or musician. Which may explain why treated with an eat fast... More

We had an incredible lunch at Sushi Roku yesterday! The sushi was fresh and flavourful, the house wine excellent! Brandon, the Manager was very attentive, helpful and engaging. My wife and I had never been here before and would definitely go back again and again!

Servers are friendly and efficient. The food is very good. The broiled salmon is off the charts excellent. The size of the portions is embarrassingly small. The wines are ridiculously overpriced, e.g.,$50 for a $19 bottle is unconscionable. Lovely ambience.

The sushi was very tasty, the only reason I am rating it a 4 out of 5 is because the cut rolls are smaller than most places. And my teens can eat a LOT OF FOOD, so it was more expensive than I would have wanted.

Sushi Roku is a hidden gem in Pasadena. We have been going to Sushi Roku, quite often, for years now. The sushi is very fresh and great quality; there are times that we just skip the rice and go for sashimi. The service is excellent (ask for Michael; unfortunately, now he only works on Fridays). Try the happy hour; the... More
