Fun place, attentive waiter and manager. Great location, great food, fresh and creative. My only complaint... a bit loud/ kind of like a sports bar setting.

Some items are amazing - spicy edamame, surf and turf roll, la lakers roll - along with the specialty cocktails. The Dynamite left a lot to be desired as did some of the cooked sushi rolls. Overall very good.

The sushi is very fresh...just melts in your mouth! Try their flavored hot sakes for a real treat!

We had reservations but the restaurant didn't seem full until we left. We were seated right away and ordered appetizers. The shrimp & vegetable tempura was delicious, not oily at all. We ordered 2 specialty rolls, the philadelphia & one with soft shell crab. Both came quickly. It was a large roll so when it was cut there were over 8 pieces each.

It's sometimes hard to find
It's sometimes hard to find good quality sushi in a larger sushi restaurant, but ROK has some of the best sushi in the Southbay. I've been eating here since it was Club Sushi and I believe (or so I've been told) they kept the same chef's. This is great for a date night, place to grab a quick drink at the bar or sit at the sushi bar with some friends and enjoy the energetic ambiance. This all goes without being said that the service is great and very friendly.

30th Birthday Dinner
I booked a reservation for 10 people for my 30th birthday over Memorial Weekend. When we arrived our table was waiting for us upstairs in a private dining area, which was perfect for our size group. Our service was excellent and the sushi was incredible! We had brought with us a birthday cake and it was nice that the restaurant did not charge a "cutting fee". Overall, Rok was very accommodating to our group and I had a wonderful birthday dinner in Hermosa!

Fun Restaurant Near The Pier
Great spot for a fun evening out with friends near the Hermosa Beach pier. Good food and drinks!

It has definitely changed and has a more latin twist, but it is still good. Just not your traditional sushi restaurant with traditional sushi rolls.

So much more than Sushi
We went to Rok Sushi planning to have sushi--a no brainer. Our waiter mentioned that they had a new Spanish chef and recommended we try some of the Spanish dishes on the menu. The chef turns out to be Perfecto Rocher--a world class chef and the food was incredible. The wine list is well priced, the food was great, as was the service. If you are looking for a fun sushi restaurant with excellent sushi, Rok sushi is always a good choice. But with the new Spanish menu it is so much more. We will definitely be back to see what chef Perfecto Rocher is up to.

This is a nice sushi restaurant right across the street from the pier. The sushi selection is not huge but it will likely have something you like. This is my first time at the restaurant and overall it was a good experience.

Pretty cool spot!!
I like the vibe! The rolls are pretty good. Calamari was kind of plain though... :(

The sushi was very fresh and very tasty. We went on a Monday night so the crowd was subdued, but the restaurant was pretty full by the time we left at 7:20 PM. The menu is not traditional, in that there are a lot of of California fusion items. The veggie tempura plate was light and not too greasy, but the oysters on the half-shell were quite small and I don't think I would order them again. Our waiter, however, did warn us. The Dynamite Roll was excellent and I understand that it is the most popular dish. This time we did not order the sashimi, but the last time we tried it it was very good.

Good food and service
This was our first time to try spicy edamame and it was delicious! We enjoyed various sushi rolls and a nigiri combination platter. It was a nice dinner.

We had such a great experience with the ease of using open table, the gracious hostess that seated us, our fantastic server Matt and the awesome manager who took even better care of us ;-) we'll be back soon!
