If you like grocery store sushi you may be satisfied here. We found the rice to dry and the presentation totally lacking imagination. And this nearly empty restaurant was freezing cold. When asked to please turn up the heat the owned said he was warm! There was a space heater. The The thermostat we saw read 64.

I have been walking by this place for years on my way to Fukusuke and was always amazed by all the people there. I finally tried it and to be honest, it was the worst sushi experience in my sushi life. In fact everyone in my party felt the same way. Obviously they must do something that others like but...

We finally made it here and were not dissapointed! We tried the Marin roll and the Larkspur roll. Not only were they delicious, they were beautiful as well. Great flavor, texture and the combinations worked well. We will definitely be back! Wish they were open for lunch. Made us feel very welcome too.

Previously I had given them 5 stars, however, after my last visit I was very disappointed. The worst sushi ever!! Absolutely not recommended.

King of the Roll Sushi is located in downtown Larkspur and it offers affordable, tasty sushi in a relaxed setting. Patrons have no need to dress up, as the minimal decor and ample outdoor seating make King of the Roll a wonderful place for a leisurely meal in Marin. Eat on the outdoor patio in the back of the restaurant... More

Been coming here for years. Good service if you eat in; prompt if you're getting takeout. Check out the selection of sushi specials.

King of the Roll is a wonderful establishment to find fresh sushi and other assorted Asian foods. The price is not to be believed for the quality of food you find. The restaurant is not fancy by any means, and take out is a super option. There are outdoor tables, some face a parking lot, so recommend indoor dining and... More

Ingredients: good (not the best) sushi served in what was the old train station in downtown Larkspur. A wide open space - Formica tables without much fanfare - can be noisy when filled with local families. This isn't about the highest grades of sushi served with a flamboyance; it is a local joint frequented by families. Menu includes a decent... More
