    Food was extremely salty, unable to eat it. I ordered filet mignon japonaise and the level of saltiness made it inedible. We also ordered wagyu and it was cold and had no flavor and was bland, it didn’t taste like wagyu. The only thing we enjoyed was the popcorn shrimp even though it was soggy. The filet mignon skewers were also very salty.

    Astronomically priced compared to the quality of the fish, simply put. A very average sushi experience for a big price tag. Additionally, the hostess was very inattentive when we arrived, and even though we informed her we were an Opentable reservation for 5:30, she did not register that and we just received a no show notice from Opentable.

    We wanted to reward our son for a big accomplishment in his karate progress & he loves Japanese food so we took him to Roku! Food was amazing & we had a great time. The service was excellent! It’s def pricey but you know what you’re gonna get. Only draw back was a 3/4 year old whose parents were letting terrorize the restaurant and run around literally yelling & coughing at random tables. I was appalled & we were there w out two young kids who were also looking at this child like “What the heck is going on?”

    I love this place! They have the best salmon sashimi and they have very good popcorn shrimp. Only complaint I have is that the bathroom doors are just terrible. I’ve hurt my fingers on multiple occasions just trying to open and close/lock the stall doors. They are loud and quite frankly annoying. I get that the establishment is going for the cutting edge look of their bathrooms, and the rest of the bathroom succeeds with that. Besides that, 5 stars, I love this place!

    Sushi Roku - PasadenaResponded on December 16, 2022Thank you so much for your review and feedback about the bathroom doors. We're glad you enjoyed your time here and we will look into the bathroom door situation. Please introduce yourself to our manager Tom next time you dine in! :)

    I wish I had better things to say about the food at this place but it was extremely overpriced for what we got. The portions were so tiny and no miso soup or salad was offered like every single other sushi restaurant ever?! Truly disappointing with the "ok" quality food and portions.

    Sushi Roku - PasadenaResponded on November 5, 2022Hi Pamelah- I'm so sorry it was loud for you dinner on Sunday. I'd love to have you back and find a quieter table for you next time. Was it the music volume or overall atmosphere that was too loud? I appreciate your feedback and will make sure to monitor noise levels in the future. Again, I would love to have you back, please ask for me, my name is Sarah and I am the General Manager here. Looking forward to meeting you soon.

    Went for my birthday celebration. Always love the ambiance however, the food this time wasn’t exciting. I asked for a couple of dishes to be spicy or with a side of ponzu; and I’m glad that I did as almost everything that we ate was sweet. Was BEYOND surprised that they do an imitation and real crab mix when asking for anything crab. Yuck! My cocktail was okay however, had to ask for my passion fruit as it just tasted like coconut and lime. Dessert option could be a bit better, maybe one to two additions/have a better variety. Would definitely return however just for Sake and a couple of apps (the Brussel Sprout Chips and Black Edamame).

    My wife and I met each other for the first time and had our first date at this Sushi Roku. The host seated us at the same table we sat at on our first date. We’ve been to Sushi Roku several times, but never since we had our daughter (who is now 2 yrs old). We love the service, the sushi is always fresh, and we are never disappointed with our experience.

    Food was okay. It wasn’t the most amazing sushi, but it got the job done. A little more on the expensive side though so do expect to pay a pretty penny. Our server was attentive and quick on busy night. Ambience was fine. There was a small concert the night went so it was a bit loud but nothing too distracting.

    I’m sorry guys, but this is not 5 start dining. I chose this place based on the 5 stars at Open Table. Should have done more research but really how much research can you do on a last minute pick and Open Table reviews had not let me down before. Should have gone to another place. The food was substandard, chain like. Sorry! But that’s what it seemed to me. The chicken teriyaki comes with mash potatoes! The kitchen was very slow. It took about 30 minutes for us to get the food, even with live ordering. The waitress missed one of our orders and as I tried to order some more food the waitress told me I would have to wait another 25 minutes for my order. The manager tried. He was very nice and attentive. But I had already wasted a rare night out at this place.

    SUSHI Roku is yummy. I’ve been to both - the one in Santa Monica and Pasadena. Yummy sushi and entree choices. The calamari is freakin off the chain. We generally get two order. So worth it! The place is on the pricey side, but a good investment and recommend staying away from drinks unless you need to indulge. Have a snack at home before you go, otherwise you will over order. Drinks like most places are expensive. One of my favorites.
