Olive and Sesame is my absolute favorite place. We eat here often and have always been very pleased with our experience. We've never had one dish that was bad or wasn't absolutely delicious. I don't think that the previous bad review was an honest one at all because their staff is so friendly that often the owner will come and sit with you and talk. The staff is amazing, the sushi (especially dragon roll) is excellent. You would be hard pressed to find another dining experience on par with theirs in Pasadena.
The Sushi here is on par with some of my favorites, Joss for example. The seating is very comforting and spacious . Good Wine selection, and fair beer selection too ; they also have liquor too if you want something harder. Their prices for alcohol are average.
Customer service sometimes is not spot on. During the day they have the owner and his wife serving you, which can be give or take. The Wife tends to make comments that feel inappropriate after you place your order . For example a friend and I where eating a late lunch early dinner sushi meal . After I said the order to her she laughed and said any more? I don't think 5 rolls and water is a lot for two but, then again that's why i felt it to be inappropriate.
Beyond that the dishes are very good for the style. Very unique in what they use to make certain dishes . Like a whole chicken breast lightly flaked covered in sweet and sour sauce, for their sweet and sour chicken. And many, many more offerings.
I would suggest to try here once. You'll probably go back, plus unlike Szechuan Cafe , their open on Monday. Even better time to try them out.
