Sushi Roku – Las Vegas

Sushi Roku is a Japanese restaurant with outlets in five locations. The Las Vegas branch was our dining destination for our last night of our USA road trip.

 

Located on the top level of the Forum Shoppes at Caesar’s Palace this was my second, and J’s third, visit to Sushi Roku.

 

We had a booking for a table but asked if we could sit at the sushi bar.

For drinks J had sake and I had some sort of raspberry concoction.

Sushi Roku does some of the best miso soup we have had outside of Japan.

J ordered the Roku signature style sushi Matsu – eight piece selection.

All pieces of fish were super fresh and tasty. J then ordered the Roku signature style sushi ume -six piece selection, which is the same as the eight piece selection but less pieces. As we had already had the eight piece selection the chefs chose some different pieces of fish for us to try.

 

The American Kobe Beef Potstickers with a sesame soy dip were also very good.

We also had the Fried Ji-Dori Chicken Kara Age. Love fried chicken!

And the American Kobe Meatballs in lettuce cups. These were recommended over the beef skewers by our waiter, and after seeing the skewers came out next to us we agreed we made the right decision.

We had been chatting to the head sushi chef and had mentioned we were travelling for J’s birthday.

 

He asked us if we had ordered dessert and when we said yes, he dashed off into the kitchen. We didn’t really think much of it until this came out with our dessert…

He had dashed back to make sure J got a birthday candle with dessert!

I can’t remember what the dessert was but it was fresh and fruity and worked really well after our savoury dishes.

 

The service was good and we have never had bad food at Sushi Roku and would recommend it.
