“A nice Friday dinner”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Parents used to love going here after seeing a play at the Pasadena Playhouse so thought we would give it a try. The people are friendly and helpful without being overbearing. The food is wonderful and pleasant atmosphere.

“Family owned and run jewel”
Reviewed 3 June 2013 via mobile

I have eaten here many times over the years...about 20 years! The same family still runs it. It is very authentically Japanese. If you have ever been to Japan it is just like the small restaurants there. All the food items in the menu are pictured and all the flowers are plastic. I always order the #2 chicken teriyaki and tempura. These dinners come with miso soup, small cucumber salad and pickled cabbage. Photos will show this. I don't eat sushi or sashimi but my boyfriend does and says it is super fresh although limited selection depending on what is available. The dinners used to be served in bento boxes but that has changed. We always see Japanese eating here which is a good endorsement. They have takeout and good parking behind the restaurant. I love eating here. It is consistent over the years.

“Nice Gem to find”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

We have walked past this place for at least 7 yrs and finally decided to give it a try since our favorite sushi place was closed for remodel. The place opens at 5:30pm for dinner, and we go there at 5:15pm, it was rather cold outside. The older lady opened the door and allow us to come in early, that was a big plus they care for their customers. We sat at the sushi bar and started to order. Everything we had was very fresh and good, even tried some stuff of the menu. We order the fried oysters and tempura. All was very good, when we got the bill were were surprise at the price it was great!!! We have gone to several sushi places and walked out paying over $100 but this place was great. We were full and happy and it did not break the bank. I think we have a new favorite place. If you like little hole in the wall place without all the fancy stuff this is it. If you like the bling blang place don't come here.

“Long time customers of their good quality sushi”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

We have been going to Sachi Sushi for years. Located in a small alleyway off of Colorado blvd, the quality of their fish is excellent. They also offer healthy bento boxes with brown rice, and vegetarian options.
Over the years, they have been consistently very good, with quick service and good food. Kathleen the owner may move a little slower, but her desire remains to take care of her customers, and she does.
There are fancier places. There are trendier places. But we come here regularly because this is "our" place.
Great location to catch a meal and then walk across to the Laemmle Playhouse 7 for a unique movie, or next door to the Laemmle for a coffee and dessert at the Zeli coffee bar located in the Vroman's bookstore
