  • Unbearable noise

    We have been to this restuarant for lunch numerable times and love their sushi. Finally went for dinner. The sushi was as good as lunch but the music and noise level made it unbearable to enjoy. Plus even tho we went at 7 PM, there were several families with children, some of whom were not well behaved. I know the restauarnt does not have control of that, might just be our bad luck BUT they were also playing music a bit too loud that had a "beat" which reverberated , sort of echoed off the walls. Between that and the noisey kids, it made conversation impossible. Not an enjoyable experience. We will go back but NOT for dinner.

    My daughter and I had a "girls weekend" in LA. We had dinner here our last night and it was perfect. Not too loud and the service was very good. Our server was very sweet and extremely attentive. We asked to be seated at the sushi bar because there was a bit of a draft above the table we were originally seated at (they also offered to turn down the A/C for us). Even though she was no longer our server after they moved us, she still came by to check on us, as did the Manager. The cocktails are very good, a little pricey, but that's expected. The chocolate volcano cake is a must have! Baked perfectly - no burnt edges and the molten chocolate was not too sweet nor too bitter. We only shared a couple of rolls, but all were very good.

    They are very nice the food is always top notch at this location, and I know I will be satisfied every time regardless of the day that I had. The lunch special is a ridiculous value and very flavorful. Do not miss the baked Cod and at dinner bring a healthy appetite because there is a lot of fun fusion health items to choose from. Not you normal roll place.

    The sashimi here is top notch. I wish the menu were a little more descriptive. I wasn't sure what to order by reading the menu options; however, almost everything we tried was wonderful. The fluke sashimi option was my favorite--it was thinly sliced and well-paired, giving an excellent jolt to the palate! It is pricey, but delicious. The sushi rolls are acceptable, but not nearly as good as the sashimi. Again, I wish I had a more descriptive menu to help me decide what to order, and the server wasn't all that helpful in this area either. She just pointed out a few items that are "ordered often." I will definitely go back and slowly try new things here. Make sure you have a good $200 to spend for two people. Oh and the Moscow Mule is delish!

    Belleniba
    Dined on 2/8/2014
    I liked the atmosphere but wished our table had been a bit more private. It was cold with the patio door open. One of the waiters was nice enough to close it when we asked if he could. I started off with the Fusion Roku cocktail (really yum). We then ordered the Dynamite Crab roll and Salmon Sushi. The Salmon sushi was fresh as expected. The dynamite roll didn't quite cut it for me. I then asked the waitress to recommend their best roll and she suggested the Katana roll which was a pleasant and unexpected discovery (will order this next time). For dessert, our waitress recommended the Red Velvet bread pudding dessert and that was all deliciousness :) Service was well-timed and friendly. We left with a warm fuzzy.

    Baked lobster tail roll was good but the sauce was a bit to creamy, I would it like a citrus touch to enjoy and refresh. Salmon skin hand roll was delivered with a bit of charcoal flavor wrap in heavy duty seaweed, as well as for two more hand rolls we order. In addition we order few more rolls but it was blend. Decor was good, but a little light will help to read the menu. I was hoping.....

    It's always a treat to stop by Sushi Roku. Trendy, yet, classic sushi joint that does not veer too far off from what a REALLY good sushi is. In addition, they actually did a great job of adding the steaks into their menu, which doesn't work well in general. But I would actually come here just for their steaks!

    My husband wanted sushi in LA and we were meeting up my son who is on an internship so it was a soecial night. The waiter was sweet and helpful. The sushi was the best we ever had and the dessert was a surprise! It was a little noisy for a Tuesday nite but were in our world. I would definitely go back when in LA and definitely recommend it to others.

    I went sushi Roku with my girlfriends, and we had a great time. Great food, great drinks, great dessert, and great service!....it was such an amazing experience, and we will definitely go back again! Our server was Lindsay. She was so sweet and everything she recommended was tasty! Yuzu, peppercorns, lemongrass and shiso cocktail was the best cocktail I ever tasted!!! Of course, amazing sashimi and sushi, but their ribeye dish was great too! We loved fancy "Hollywood style" smores too! We will be back!
