Zono Sushi on Lake Ave in Pasadena is pretty good! TIP: Sit at the bar. Even if you aren't a 'die hard' sushi eater, the Sushi chefs are so nice and friendly and really make the experience. The table waitstaff for the rest of the restaurant is tolerable at best. The outdoor seating is nice, but again, you'll pay for it with the poor service. Sitting at the bar by-passes all of the waitstaff and you interact directly with the chefs. Be daring, order off-menu- We have only said, 'a roll with anything but spicy tuna' and they create imaginative new fun dishes for you. They will also talk you into trying some delicious things you would have never had the guts to try before!
