Sushiko | Rohnert Park

Dancing Eel roll with shrimp tempura, avocado and fried eel

With one of Northern California’s top sushi spots just a mile away from this Rohnert Park sleeper, Sushiko has a lot to live up to. But this simple little sushi bar tucked quietly inside a floundering strip mall is getting lots of thumbs up from BiteClubbers who say it’s tops for everyday sushi cravings.

Having shrugged off the failure of two previous lackluster tenants, the space has been transformed into a sleek Asian oasis. The itamae has some of the most impressive knife and rice-making skills on the 101-corridor, and is churning out both straightforward nigiri and sashimi, along with Americanized rolls (Sex on the beach, tuna gone wild, Titanic) that look as good as they taste.

Along with sushi, expect to find luncheon bentos ($9.95 and up with great mix-n-match options) and all the usual suspects (teriyaki, donburi, katsu, yaktiori, tempura) at mid-range prices. Not quite Hana, but a top contender for our Tuesday night sushi yen.

6285 Commerce Blvd., #302 (next to Del Secco’s gelato), Rohnert Park, 585-2774. Open daily for lunch and dinner.

    Went here to binge before having my wisdom teeth out last week and was pleasantly surprised! A gal I work with recommended it, said it was very good and the service was excellent.

    I can’t remember what exactly I had (nigiri platter or something?) but it was very nice. Fresh, fantastic presentation, well put together. They even gave us some veggie tempura on the house!

    Definitely intend to return. :)

    My fav sushi is in St Helena at Go Fish. The lobster sushi roll is the BEST!! They also have a killer wine list. Im tired of drinking crappy sake and kirin on tap at all these sushi places in Sonoma County.

    Go Fish is not just a game, its a place to eat.

      Kirin ain’t my favorite either, but most sushi places in So Co have other beers. I think beer is an excellent accompaniment to sushi. Also, are you ordering the hot sake? That would explain the crappy. Take a look and experiment with the sake list at almost any sushi restaurant. I’ve found quite a range at even the most modest establishment. A good server should be able to help you find one to your liking.

      What kind of wine are you drinking with your sushi?

      Cheers,
      John.
