Sexiest Restaurant in AMA

For high-end sushi and Asian fusion dishes, with an Asian techno-modern atmosphere, Rain is probably one of the sexiest and cerebral restaurants in the panhandle, but is by far the coolest looking restaurant in Amarillo. Probably one of the most eye-catching bars in Texas west of the DFW metroplex... read more

For date night we love to visit this place! Happy hour offers many great value options and still great size portions. This is our favorite sushi stop based on value and atmosphere.

Food is good and atmosphere is also good. I have been several times and the service good only couple of times. Most time (over 20 visits) service is horrible. I realized why is they add 18% gratuity to your ticket whether 2 or 8. I was told this was recently illegal to do this. I tip over 20% when service... More

Need a service training make over. Hit and miss service provided at the restaurant. I have been lucky to have good server most of the time. But there were times that we have problem with their services. Food was great for the most part. But Wednesday is when all the food ran out. How can an Asian fusion restaurant run... More

I LOVE sushi, so, I have a palette for raw fish and an expectation for sushi bars. I was excited to experience Rain, as I have seen many billboards for it, knew it was popular, thus knew it would be fresh and a good time. Hmmm, guess again.... Since this local sushi bar is so popular, it is crowded, especially... More

My husband and I enjoyed the food.......but it took us 1 hour and 20 minutes for our service due to 3 people short staffing.....that is OK. The MANAGER said well what do you want me to do about your service. .....um say your sorry .....nope.look and walk off. Why apologize when she gets our $100.00.....BUYER BEWARE!!!!!

Since it opened, this has been one of my favorite sushi places in town. They have great happy hour deals, which is the time to go! My girlfriends and I went during happy hour on a Friday night (before 7PM). We ordered 4 rolls,a spicy edamame appetizer and a bottle of sake, a small caraf of sake and a gin... More

This is a hip, trendy place with a diverse menu. There was something for everyone. The music was a little too loud for us to talk but we still enjoyed.
