My youngest daughter has loved this place since she was preschool, and now that she's a teen it's still her favorite place to come on her birthday. But it's not just for kids. If your family loves sushi, you need good fish at affordable prices,...More

"Afloat Sushi" hangs its hat on a novelty "gimmick" - the sushi is made in a central area, surrounded by a circular moat, gently gurgling away, and the customers sit on the outer rim of the circle, plucking their choices from the decks of a...More

I almost never bother to leave negative reviews, but I had such a poor experience at Afloat that I really have to do so. The service was friendly enough, but the food was barely passable. I ordered the Sushi teriyaki lunch set. The price was...More

Went there solo for lunch on a Sunday afternoon during a conference. Rolls and sushi were edible, but not very good? Chef's creations were not interesting. Plates went around too long on boats to feel they remain fresh. Service was very bad despite the light...More

One of the few non-chain restaurants remaining in Old Pasadena, they use the simple concept of Sushi delivered to the tables on the back of a boat, riding in water. Sushi is average.

This is one of our favorite locations to go for sushi. The choices are great. You can either take from the boats floating past you or from a menu. We have tried both options and didn't find anything we didn't like. The service is great....More

Unique style - you sit around and yes I mean around the sushi bar and there is a channel of water running around the same sushi bar. The chef's make their creations and place them on different colored plates in little boats floating in the...More

I have been to Afloat sushi a few times, this time I ducked in for a quick sushi dinner while traveling solo. Sat at the sushi bar and tried several sushi plates and some rolls. The sushi was very good and tasty, the rolls were...More

I eat at Afloat every time I can while in California. It is such a unique idea with the sushi chef in the middle putting out the individual servings . The boats continue around so the patrons can take what they want and pay accordingly....More

We stumbled upon Afloat Sushi after discovering that the sushi restaurant we were looking for wasn't open yet. What a nice surprise it turned out to be! The quality of kaiten (conveyor-belt) sushi places varies widely, here in the U.S., and in Japan as well....More
