As a sushi ya that embraces authentic Japanese cuisine, we offer fish of only impeccable freshness, but it doesn’t stop there.  The rice, too, must pass the rigid test for not only flavor but tantalizing texture prepared to perfection.  Freshness and preparation are paramount where cooking is all about bringing people together – whether at a cozy, romantic table-for-two or at our fun-filled robatayaki grill!  Here, you can savor the deliciousness of seafood, meats, and veggies prepared with open-flame cooking in full view where aroma’s fill the senses and conversation flows like fine sake’.

Our sushi ya is a favored location near Pasadena for sushi lovers locally and around the world where our chefs showcase their passion for crafting their culinary offerings in the form of hand rolls, cut rolls, nigiri, sashimi, and so much more – all created to satisfy sushi cravings for lunch or dinner.  Whether you bring your family, meet your friends, arrange lunch with colleagues, or come solo, your experience at our sushi ya will be one you won’t forget.

Our Sushi Ya Menu – Where Taste Buds Go Bonkers

Feeling one’s taste buds becoming excited over the colors, textures, and flavors of our food items is what our sushi ya is all about.  Near Pasadena, but far removed from the mundane, our Japanese-inspired cuisine cultivates a Far East vibe where selecting which sushi option might be the most delicious can be the biggest challenge of the day.

Come try our:

Hand Rolls – a sushi ya favorite crafted with an outer covering of paper-thin sheets of nori (a type of seaweed) in the distinctive shape of a cone.  The ingredients, artistically, spill out from the open end – a culinary creation meant to be hand-held and eaten with gusto!


Cut Rolls – a go-to sushi classic our Pasadena customers relish.  Our sushi ya offers a myriad of delicious varieties – from cut-roll veggie-style as well as spicy tuna, blue crab, lemon salmon, spicy scallops, and so much more!


Nigiri – a form of sushi that incorporates a thinly-sliced drapery of raw seafood served over a mound of hand-pressed sweet-and-salty vinegared rice with no extra ingredients added, such as cucumbers or avocados, for example.  Our nigiri selections are a taste sensation!


Sashimi – a specialty of our sushi ya which incorporates succulent, delicately-sliced raw fish.  Sashimi is not a true form of sushi since no rice is used to enhance the incredible flavor of the fish.  This delicately-prepared seafood is scrumptious enough to stand on its own.


Whether you are planning a business luncheon, an engagement dinner, a much-anticipated first date, or a gathering of close friends, your dining experience at Seaweed Hand Roll Bar will be long remembered!
