The food remains good, but they were understaffed for the number of people at the restaurant on a Saturday night. If I’m paying $150 per person, I don’t want multiple instances of wondering where the wait staff is. More than a few times, our glasses of mixed drinks and waters were empty and it took longer than normal to order food.

We went for my husband's birthday with our two children 5, and almost 9. It was a huge success. Sushi was wonderful and amazing quality!!

We loved it! Seated promptly. Great service. Really great food. Better half had vegetable tempura and eggplant miso (exceptional) followed by hamachi (yellowtail). I had the potstickers and the salmon. Nice touch: the server offered the "older"menu's sides.

Definitely going back.

It'd been years since I'd been to Roku, and one bite into my seaweed salad, I wondered why I haven't been going there all along. The fish is as fine and fresh as any sushi I've had elsewhere in the area, the service is friendly and accommodating, and the menu's offerings are imaginative in all the right ways--making the most of superb ingredients. One outstanding example: toro carpaccio lightly dressed with yuzu truffle sauce, made ambrosial with a pinch of osetra caviar. The room can get noisy, but the long (afternoon through late into the evening) opening hours provide plenty of options for dining off-peak.

The food is Modern Asian style which tastes really new yet a tad strange to us. For the signature sushi dish, it didn’t come with wasabi, but a house made dipping sauce. Neither of us can tell what it is and the taste wasn’t suitable with sushi at all. However we were amazed by their desserts, which is able to with any high class French restaurant. Food quality and service is average, nothing wrong and nothing outstanding. Decor is good.

What an enjoyable afternoon lunch! We have been here several times (its a regular destination for us) but never before at lunch. Service was exemplary and attentive. Food delivery was perfectly timed and the quality of the seafood is unmatched. We happened on the preview for DineLA this visit so we tried their special offerings. Perfectly sized for lunch; added an order of Garlic Spicy Edamame to start. If you have a chance to try Sushi Roku between now and 1/26, start with their Lunch or Dinner offers. Everything on the menu is delicious for sushi fans.

Too slow, I had requested booth which we did not get. We were given a free appetizer to compensate which was ok. They were very slow, took a long time to get the food. The desert we ordered was moldy. This was the third year in a row that we were celebrating a birthday at Roku but it was for sure the last time.

I hadn't been to Sushi Roku for a few years, and was pleasantly surprised about their menu, where everything we had was delicious and there was a wide variety. A little pricey, but the ambiance, service and food made it worth it.

Had the deep fried rice/sushi thingies, super good. Spicy edamame (great), assortment of nigiri (yellowtail, salmon, tuna) salmon and yellowtail we’re fantastic, tuna not so much (second time the tuna has been sub-par here, not sure what the deal is). white crab hand roll things, i don’t care for them (so little flavor) but my girlfriend loves them so it’s just a personal preference thing.

overall both meals i’ve had here have been pretty excellent. maybe just work on that tuna.

the service is quite slow, you have to ask a couple times for water refill, the quantity for the food is quite small, because it is japanese cuisine.

We’ve eaten here many times through the years. Every time the service gets slower and less attentive. Portions have gotten extremely small. 180 for two people. Will probably be our last time dining with them.

Great way to end the night. 10:45 reservations didn't give us much time to look at the menu since we got there just as the last call for the kitchen was announced. Otherwise it was great.

My king crab rice had no crab my daughters as well I guess because it was 50% anniversary time. I don’t think that should have made a difference I would have paid full price to have the crab. I go there on my way home just to get it

Service was great & the food was even better. Most of the food comes in small portions, so order as you go, I recommend the toro & the scallop hand roll, the tuna tartar was amazing. Not so great for kids but they have a kids menu
