The chef here never fails to delight. The food is straightforward and good. This is not high-end sushi but it IS neighborhood sushi at its best.

Odd little sushi place, in small quarters but with really very good food, personal service and very local feeling.

The King of the Roll's sushi and other food are more of a fusion rather than original Japanese cuisine, which can be a good or bad thing depending on your expectations. There were times we loved what we got, and at other times we thought we wasted money. The staff is friendly and attends to you right away, but the place itself needs an overhaul. The restaurant occupies an historic building in Larkspur: the original Larkspur Station of the National Pacific Railway, so it's understandable if the exterior is preserved. However, the interior is very dated and needs a little bit more aggressive cleaning. From paint to decor to tables and chairs that have seen better days from the distant past, to the unkempt patio seating with uncomfortable, dilapidated chairs at the back of the building where the exposed trash bin and supply boxes are, I think the owner needs to get serious of doing a radical makeover to make the place look and feel cleaner. The kitchen is also so cramped. To be fair, there is never a smell of rotting fish or produce, which is a relief to those of us who worry about the sanitary requirements of food preparation, especially sushi.

What I liked best about going to the King of the Roll is that the sushi was very good and reasonably priced!
