Sushi
Sushi Roku combines the finest, freshest fish from pristine waters around the globe with the kind of artistry that can only be provided by a mature sushi chef ensuring superlative traditional sushi, together with a splash of California innovation. Sushi Roku is a pioneer of contemporary sushi, incorporating diverse, non-traditional ingredients from Latin America (e.g. jalapeños) and Europe (e.g. olive oil) into its edible works of art. This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

Sitting outside is very nice when the weather permits. Inside, the vibe is not as nice. Service seems to be an issue lately. Mine was fine.

Servers were cordial and polite. The quality of the food was good. Sashimi serving was small. Lack of variety of special rolls.

My sons birthday. Our server was very passive. The standard of this place has changed a lot. No longer the upscale feel.

Really nice experience, it’s a very nice place. The fish is clean but the roll selection was basic, the sashimi was pretty good. Sushi a bit underwhelming. Great service though.

We haven’t been back for a while. It’s really good to see it’s still in business with an outdoor option in the plaza. Had our fix of sushi including amaebi special and the chocolate lava dessert.

I love sushi roku… however , my mom ordered an iced tea and instead of iced tea it was soy sauce poured over ice . They then told me that at the end of the day they pour all the left over soy sauce in a big pitcher and it looks similar to the iced tea pitcher . Seriously gross that my mom drank that . We barely got an apology

Love coming here for date night. Service was outstanding and so was the food.

My only complaint is someone thought bringing a family including 5 kids and taking the premiere outdoor seating was a good idea. Take the kids to Bucca, what are they doing at a place for adults? I get restaurants are desperate for business…so put the family inside in the corner.

I've always loved Roku. But I was so disappointed in the food. It was lackluster. Had no flavor, dry. Just bad and disappointing all around. The server was sweet, but the food just terrible. More so, since I have such great memories from previous years.

We celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at Sushi Roku last night. They have done an excellent job at creating a safe and clean space during these times. The sushi was exceptional, it always is, so fresh and just melts in your mouth. We also had the truffle edamame and truffle Brussels sprout chips wow just wow! So yummy! We travel from Santa Clarita Valley to Pasadena for sushi there because it’s just that good every single time. Wish they would open one in SCV 😀
