Sushi roku was used to be my fave several years ago. I didn't go there for a while and stopped by finally.

It was really disappointing.

We had Edamame, which wasn't worth $6, pretty normal. Lamb chops tasted not sweet and melty as other places at all. I think the sauce had too much soy sauce, that's why too salty and not mild at all. They use cheap frozen chunky toro for Toro roll with pickles, and frozen snapper, around $4 in Asian market for Special menu, Snapper sashimi with cucumber pure, $18 for 5pcs, which was fishy. I couldn't finish even 1pc. Actually the cut roll looked perfect, so that was really disappointing. At the end, Soba noodle, which was not bad, but the sauce was wrong. They gave us Tempra sauce. They should learn sauce for Tempra and Soba was completely different. They can't use same one.

After all, I prefer Katsuya to going Roku now. Much cheaper and tasty.

A bit pricey, but good quality sushi. Get the Sashimi! Nice views of the water from the inside and outdoor patio too

Best Sushi on Westside – This place has the best sushi hands down on the Westside, great for dates too. Lots of action and a very cool vibe. Only problem is that it is always so crowded and sometimes have to wait for your table or service.

Pricey Sushi that is sometimes worth it! – If money is no object, and you don't mind fighting the crowds for this slickly decorated sushi place, you might have a great, memorable meal here.

Its worth asking the waiters what their favorites are, then checking the price to see if they are not just pushing the most expensive items... there are quite a lot of great, unique choices, so keep asking about them.

I like the atmosphere - you feel like its an experience... it just may not be the experience you can splurge for every week!

good food – My girlfriend took me to sushi roku the other day and I was pretty happy with the sushi and sashimi. It's a little pricey but most great restaurants are. If you love this place you'll most likely enjoy Club Sushi and Sushi Gen.

Excellent fresh fish in high energy environment – The sushi and sashimi is fresh and attractively prepared. The server kept up with our ordering pattern, but seemed a little distracted (overworked?) and it took a few reminders to keep the drinks coming in concert with the food. In general, I would give the thumbs up for taking a date or a small number of guests -- nice interior, very clean, professional service environment without the uptightness of nobu. it is more fun that ocean ave seafood (also of excellent quality, but a very predictable American experience).
