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. Delivery Available through ChowNow.



RobataBar, located behind Sushi Roku features robatayaki style skewers, tapas style sashimi dishes, and sushi.

The restaurant is pleasant and the service was good. The food is very expensive and mediocre. Be prepared to spend a lot of money to get full. We had two adults and a nine year old child. It was $200 and my husband was still hungry enough to pick up a couple of tacos on our way home. So definitely not the spot for good sushi/good value for your $.

Steak was cold and not grilled. Ordered chicken fried rice and it tasted like some crockpot chicken without any soy sauce or teriyaki. Only good thing about this place was our server.

We ordered hot saki for the second time and had to wait a long time seems like our waiter had forgotten about it . We canceled our order. It shouldn’t have taken that long . He didn’t even apologize for the saki being late

We sat in our favorite indoor patio table and before we could finish ordering food was already coming out. We just love this restaurant it’s one of our favorite sushi restaurants in Southern California. All the food is fresh everything is always perfect.

Fresh fish prepared well. Great cocktail and beer selection. Noisy so conversation can be difficult. Also a bit dim at dinner so the flashlight app is a must.

Food was very good (i had two sushi rolls that were excellent), and for my kids, they were willing to go off the menu, and give them something less spicy. Service was truly outstanding. Cool place with great view of the beach, and all the hustle and bustle. Highly recommend.

We were seated 1/2 hour late (had a reservation). Appetizer was very good! Sushi was fresh, but average in taste. Waiter tried to rush us through from the moment we sat down. Was put off when we asked for a few minutes to decide on drinks and appetizers. Plates were taken from our table before we were done with them. Once we finished dinner and were sipping the remainder of our cocktails, the staff started to walk by every 2 minutes giving us dirty looks. Do not recommend this place if you'd like to have a nice, relaxing evening.

It is a really nice restaurant with great food and a wonderful atmosphere, but make sure to have loads of cash. Portion sizes are small compared to prices. But the quality of the food is great. Also highly recommend as a date spot.

First time at this sushi roku. Great job on appetizers and rolls, but the actual sushi (toro and whole scallops) was very underwhelming relative to price and experiences at other roku locations.

Such a wonderful treat... I recommend going with your wait-person's suggestions. There are quite a bit of "standard" items on the menu you can get anywhere. Don't do it. Get their specialities, especially the yellowtail sashimi!
