Under the guidance of Chef Haru, Sushi Roku continues to innovate with unexpected techniques and ingredients—such as Jalapeños from Latin America, French Black Truffles, and Italian cheeses—while remaining true to the fundamentals of sushi making: quality, simplicity, and purity. A few notable facts about the iconic brand include:

  • Sushi Roku offers a variety of off-menu or “insider” menu items for those in-the-know. Truffle lovers can order Truffle Soy Sauce and Black Truffle Hand Rolls
  • Sushi Roku offers a gluten-free menu including housemade soy and ponzo sauces
  • Sushi Roku’s uni is sourced from a 41-year old family run business in Santa Barbara. New to the menu is Blue Crab Tartare with Uni & Caviar and Uni Udon
  • The chefs recommend marinating cuts of meat 3x for maximum flavor
  • Sushi Roku has three certified sake sommeliers and its own sake label, “Junmai Roku” with Suehiro Brewery in Japan
