I was slightly hesitant when
I was slightly hesitant when I first thought about eating sushi in Arizona...after all, everything needs to be flown in. How fresh could that be? Sushi Roku blew my mind. The toro was outstanding. The hamachi was outstanding. The uni was outstanding. I don't think I ate anything I didn't love...and admittedly I am a sushi snob. You also have to order the yellowtail sashimi with diced chilies as an appetizer. Spectacular. Highly recommend.

We experienced unbelievably fresh and flavorful sushi and sashimi with exceptional service. Our server, Cody,was extremely knowedgeable, friendly and seemed to really enjoy what she was doing. The entire experience was a delight. We would go back in a heartbeat.

The best dining in Scottsdale!
Their sushi is bar none! The main entrees were worth writng home about! Delicious! The service was stellar, second to none, best I have experienced thus far in Scottsdale. Our server Max was more than great he made sure everything was perfect for my family. Extremely polite and comadeering. We will be eating here again I assure you. I recomend Sushi Roku to anyone interested in having a fine dining experience with top of the line food and even finer service!!!

Sushi and Sashimi was all
Sushi and Sashimi was all very good. Top quality, fresh and creative presentation. We had a group of 7. Mostly all sushi experts and all loved it. Jenna, the main server, was as good as it gets. She explained the available options, made great suggestions and considered the business/pleasure nature of the group. (Careful to not interrupt, but still timely with food, drinks, etc) Age group was late 20's to early 50's. We did not try the bar area, but everyone noted that they would go back to try the bar as it looked like a great atomsphere.

The restaurant is attached
The restaurant is attached to the W Hotel, where there is a very attractive and vibrant pool bar scene, and which is great for drinks before or after dinner at Sushi Roku. In the evening, the restaurant is dimly lit, with a nice ambience, and relatively quiet. Our group of five had no trouble conversing comfortably. Service was attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. We ordered various hot appetizers, as well as sushi and sashimi to be shared by the group. There are a number of interesting, non-traditional sushi items on the menu, as well as all of favorities. Most of what we tried was excellent, all of it was at least very good. I would recommend this to persons seeking a solid sushi restaurant in Scottsdale.

Sush Roku= Superb!!
Norm, our server was very attentive, knowledgeable, and polite. Steve, the manager, was very kind as well. Ambience- modern comfortable seating with quiet background music. We order one of everything from AZ Restaurant Week and were happy with all of it. The stand out dish was the salmon- perfectly cooked and so moist and flavorful. My friend had the sirloin steak and she said it was very tender and seasoned well. I had the Sushi Nigiri 5 pieces- very fresh and good sashimi. Both desserts- banana egg rolls and chocolate volcano cake were delicious. Do not miss the opportunity to go up to the top of the hotel where you can enjoy the beautiful décor, pool, live DJ, and bar life. We had a blast!! We will be back sooooon!!

Fun to start a night out
Great location to begin an evening out in Scottsdale. After all of the hype, I expected a little more from the food. Don't get me wrong--it was good, but nothing super outstanding that sets it apart from other notable local notable sushi places. My rating of the noise level reflects a large family birthday party at the table next to us.

Awesome staff from the manager to the bar back to those in training! #delicious

Overall a perfect evening!
The food was the best sashimi we have had since we moved to Arizona, a nightly special by the sushi chef was the highlight. Kristen our server was attentive and helpful. We came here to celebrate our anniversary and had a fun and relaxing meal with amazing food and service!

Roku-sushi night on the town
It was romantic, I feel the service do a lot of hanging around in public view which is distracting while they are working. The food was create and tasted very fresh. I enjoyed the up beat atmosphere, yet at the sane time it was romantic and relaxing.

This restaurant was fantastic. Food was superb, validates valet parking, perfect for a date night in Scottsdale. Sushi specialty rolls were unique and very tasty. The waiter knew everything about the menu and was really helpful. I highly recommend Sushi Roku!

We were delighted to find Sushi Roku. The staff was exceptionally attentive and friendly. The presentation of the Bento box was beautiful. The server was extremely knowledgeable about sake and Japanese food.

Creative and fresh
This place has been recommended to me several times. It did not disappoint! Fresh sushi, creative combinations and beautiful presentation. We happen to go on a night where sushi was 50% off! Needless to say my gal pals and I ate more than we should and had the opportunity to try new things! Loved it! And our waiter was great and offering suggestions.

As always the service was great the staff attentive but not intrusive, food was great overall I would recommend Sushi Roku to anyone who wants a great dining experience

We were truly blown away
We enjoyed our dining experience at Sushi Roku. The service was attentive and not intrusive, the decor was elegant and tasteful, the food was wonderful. Infact we had ordered a sushi a certain way and they felt it was'nt done exactly the way we had ordered it and they came and replaced it with another plate of sushi.. now that is what you call service.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
let them create
We found again that by asking the sushi experts to simply create what they are inspired to present, to do so. Not shy to taste unusual bites, we were wowed by the food. Fresh and flavorful through out the meal. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our party of six. When you desire ingredients of high quality and want your palate entertained, go to Sushi Roku.

A bit pricey
We had sushi rolls. They were all good but nothing really special or very creative. The ingredients were fresh as you would expect but the presentation was nothing special. The atmosphere was dark and rather slick. On a busier night sitting upstairs on the patio would be really special but it was not open for us.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
This place probably has the most amazing staff on hand in the valley. I have always loved every item I have eaten and really is a special treat!

trying to be high end
First - love the room - lots of space between the tables and warm woods. We stayed with the choices that were considered their signature dishes. And while each has lots of flavors - they were all just shy of what I've had of similar dishes elsewhere. Nothing was bad - all were at least good if not very good however so if you wanted a night in at the W, this is a solid choice. Wish the wine list had a better selection of reds however - all pretty modest.

Could be best sushi rolls ever
The scene is what you'd expect at a restaurant next to The W. The food was amazing. We had several rolls and dessert and were blown away. Definitely recommend this place.
