My family loved the restaurant because of the great service, great food, and great value. My husband loved the sashimi combo because of the freshness, the varity, and the good portion. I like the steam clam soup and hamachi Kama, broiled

I found it kind of funny how many 1 star 1 review accounts have been made to trash this place (although i'm not really one to talk since i made this account just to point this out) and how many of them were simply copy and paste reviews

I am definitely a big restaurant consumer and I had the worst restaurant service ever in ZONO SUSHI PASADENA . Our food was seriously over cooked even though we ask for our meat to be medium rare. When we ask the girl for the meat to be

Stumbled on this place while doing some shopping on Lake. Had a hankering for sushi. The decor is typical sushi place. The service was very good. Whenever I walk into these places I always feel like I'm at the same place. Which is

The tempura was great, not greasy at all. The sushi was a bit fishy and warm. I tried this restaurant for lunch with a friend and she was also unhappy with the sashimi. I don't think I will return.

I used to go to the Zono in Glendale until the Chef quality became, lets say non-authentic. I followed their Japanese Chef to this new Zono and wow does it make a difference. High quality, outstanding bar service. I don't know about the restaurant per-se, but the service it the bar is awesome.

Pros: Sushi Bar and Chefs

Cons: Its a lil Drab, bar could be bigger.

I love Zono sushi!
I've been coming to Zono every week for their lunch bento box combo for the past few months now, and have always had both good service,value for money and very good food. I love their teriyaki, fresh tempuras and the succulent spicy tuna rolls are gorgeous.
I come here also because I prefer the spacious and peaceful ambience here to other sushi places around Pasadena, this is a good place to eat if you're dining on your own and just want to read the paper.

I eat here all the time w/ my boyfriend. We've tried just a couple of other sushi places around the area and this one is our favorite by far. Service is usually not too good. But there is one man there that's the best waiter. He's one of the taller men. You'll know if it's him. He's awesome. Our sushi always tastes fresh and is well wrapped. It hardly ever falls apart on us. Also their teriyaki salmon is great. This place is pretty inexpensive and parking is easy to find. It's not really upscale, just relaxed. For more romantic experience there's outdoor seating (w/ a little water fountain) that faces Lake Avenue.

My husband and I are sushi freaks... we eat it at least once a week and are always on the lookout for new places. This is NOT one of those! We happened upon it because the restaurant we wanted to eat at was closed. The sushi menu wasn't descriptive at all, and when asked which rolls don't have shellfish in them, the waitress pointed me to several, 3 of which had scallops and crab! The roll I ordered was poorly made... it fell apart immediately! The regular menu item that I ordered was awful. Waiting for 35 minutes for a simple meal might be worth it if the food was good, but it WASN'T. Afterward we waited another 15 minutes until we finally asked a bus boy to get our waitress to bring us our check. Don't waste your time. There are much better sushi restaurants in town, trust me!

My husband and I have started to regularly go to this sushi place for their weekend lunch special...however, in eyeing the sign for the weekday lunch special, it also looks very tempting. You get to choose 2 from a list of various entrees and then it also comes with a number of sides. All of the options we've tried have been tasty. We haven't sat at the sushi bar and ordered, so I can't say what the regular sushi menu has to offer, but I've been satisfied with the service, quality and quantity of the food offered for the price and location. I'd rather spend $12 for a nicer lunch on the weekend in a busy shopping district than go to one of the many nearby fast food places and still spend $6-8.

The best sushi in Pasadena at a great price! In the top 5 in Los Angeles area! Try the Salmon special, it is too die for! Every sushi plate is a work of art. Sometimes we do not even want to eat it cause it looks so good. A lot of time and skill are put into each masterpiece that Yama-San makes. 40 years of experience is put into every cut. Highly Recommend!!

As long as Yama-san is at the helm of the sushi bar, Zono will be the place for sushi in Pasadena. He's the Iron Chef of the San Gabriel Valley. The man has the skills!!! Ask for omakase and place yourself into his hands. Prices are reasonable. Just save 2 seats for me if you patronize on Fri or Sat.

This restaurant is conveniently located near all the shops on S. Lake Avenue. However, the one time I went we had horrible service. The place wasn't even crowded but it took us too long to get our food on a Sunday afternoon. The sushi was good, but it wasn't worth the wait or the bad service. I remember thinking that other sushi places are much better than this one.

Nothing special, came here because I live & work down the block and one of my favorite sushi joints closed on Mondays and I just had that sudden urge and craving for nigiri sushi. Also had couple more lunch meetings here (co-worker's choice) and still wasn't all impress.
If anyone thinks this place is good, then they haven't been around. Having thin slices of sushi and the quality of the slices seemed like it's been in the ice box from yesterday's unsold portions are not good sushi! This is not authentic sushi, couldn't comment more.

One of the best lunch specials in Pasadena, the food is above average and the price is right. The service is prompt and friendly. The sushi is fresh and the Udon is delicious. Try something a little different you will be pleasantly surprised.

This is a reliable neighborhood sushi bar, nothing more, nothing less. The chefs are skilled and friendly, and the establishment appears to have a commitment to quality ingredients. If you're expecting world-class sushi a la Matsuhisa,…
