Sushi Roku - Las Vegas, NV

Average Sushi, Dismal Decor, Boring Experience


Restaurant Category : Japanese, Sushi

Sushi Roku - Las Vegas, NV: As soon as I walked into the dingy-looking Sushi Roku, I was confused about the look that the eatery was trying to achieve. It started with a narrow alleyway and led to a dining area with tall ceilings, a dark floor and old wooden black chairs that are in dire need of a touch-up. The black poles arranged around the room only added to the confusion and I wasn’t sure if this was sheer negligence or they were trying to create some sort of a distressed Asian look. The overall look of Sushi Roku is tired, worn out and miserable to put it nicely. Though the view of the strip from the restaurant is decent, this isn’t exactly the reason why one goes to a sushi eatery in Las Vegas in the first place.

We were at the Caesars Palace located restaurant for lunch and ordered a Sashimi Combination, which the chef wouldn’t allow us to make any changes to; the result, we ended up eating the same types of fish that we normally try to avoid; mackerel and scallops. We also ordered their Katana Roll, the Kani Kani Roll, Unagi and Shrimp Tempura.

The Katana Roll, a yellow tail, spicy tuna and shrimp tempura creation cost $26.00 and was just average (and not worth the price). To relish the Kani Kani Roll one has to be a hardcore crab devotee, which unfortunately I wasn’t. So though it made for a good change, I am not sure if it’s something I’d order again. The Unagi (freshwater eel) was disappointing. It could have been amazing if they had got it right, this one though was mighty dull and boring. One of the best things that we had on the menu was Shrimp Tempura and that certainly doesn’t say much about the quality of food in a sushi restaurant.

To give them due credit, Sushi Roku’s sake list was impressive with about 25 different options and the wine offerings were just as extensive. The service was average and nothing to write home about. The food was mediocre and the decor was highly perplexing. The prices were somewhat on the higher side compared to the quality of the food. You can dart in and out of this eatery if you aren’t too fussy about your sushi and the atmosphere in which you eat it, but if you are looking for the real thing, do your fastidious palate a favor and check out some other options before you hit this one. A couple of what I consider the best sushi restaurants in Las Vegas are

Sushi Samba at The Palazzo and Social House at Treasure Island. As for Sushi Roku, I can only give it a rating of between Bombastic and Not.

What I liked: The Shrimp Tempura and the extensive sake and wine menu

What I didn’t like: the lackluster service and the weary ambiance

Rating: Between Bombastic and Not
