With over 30 years of experience, Head Sushi Chef Shin Toyoda, brings knowledge and passion to the Sushi Roku experience. A native of Tokyo, Japan, Chef Shin’s love for working with fish began when he was just 17 years old after gaining the opportunity to train under several esteemed master chefs at Kando Muromachi. It was not until 1998, after moving to Los Angeles that he joined the Sushi Roku brand and inevitably helped to open 4 of the 6 locations. When asked about what he hopes to convey through his dishes, Chef Shin will tell you that “like people, each fish has a different personality, a different way they should be treated and prepared in order to best respect and showcase that fish.” It is with this idea in mind, that Chef Shin hopes to share his love for local ingredients with the best seasonal fish the world has to offer. Kanpai!
