Sushi Roku has been wowing locals and tourists alike in Los Angeles for many years. All under the helm of master sushi chef Hiroshi Shima, Sushi Roku started the trend of super-sophisticated Japanese restaurants in Los Angeles, with its rock-and-roll sensibility in everything from decor to music. It's nothing like a traditional, quiet sushi spot. But the sushi and sashimi are always first rate (don't miss the seared albacore sashimi drenched in garlic ponzu) and the fusion dishes combining French and Japanese influences always satisfy. Be sure to try the signature Hanabi, spicy tuna on crispy rice. It's a fantastic taste sensation.
