Old favorite sushi bar

Now that's back in the former owner's hands (I think) it's very good again. Sushi Tora has come a long way from it's original hole-in-the-wall iteration in the 90s. Fishis fresh, beautifully presented and all of their sauces are GLUTEN FREE!!!

Finally got around to sampling the ramen-only dinner last night. While the ramen was quite good, though not up to the standard set by ramen-only restaurants in Denver and elsewhere, the clear star of the evening was the cucumber pork bun, which was simply exquisite; my wife and I agreed amid that it was the best we had ever tasted....

I like the food here, but the atmosphere, not so much. I did just find out that they are doing ramen on the weekends, so I will definitely be checking that out. I have never had a bad meal here, but have had a double of experiences that were not optimal, and sometimes the wait is a bit longer than... More

Joe is a great Chef, as is Thang! Fresh fish, well prepared, great service, and a welcoming and friendly environment. I am a sushi nut, been eating sushi since 1965, I go here to enjoy a great meal and relax. If you are in Boulder this is a great place to eat!

I am not sure how long Tora has been doing "ramen" Sat and Sun but man oh man I am sure glad we found out about it! We have been going on a weekly basis to weekend ramen and it is so worth the visit. They offer 3 at the moment and they are all delicious. My favorite is the... More

Healthy or in need of a fix for some great soup, I'll visit Sushi Tora over and over again for excellence in dining, service, friendly, not costly, good eats and drinks. Just off the Pearl Street Mall on a side street, I like the local crowd of friends who meet here. See ya!

Yes, this used to be the place in town for sushi. That is until the owner from Sushi Zanmai took over Tora. Now it does offer the same high quality fish and ramen but the prices are ridiculous. What used to be a $60 meal ended up costing $95. Couldn't get a box of sake for less than $18 finding... More

The food is excellent, as is the service; special rolls, special dishes and a nice saki selection make this the best Japanese restaurant (we have eaten in) in Boulder, CO.. The portions are a nice size, also.

The ramen is the best you will find in CO. To the reviewer who said the only difference between the three types of soups (ramen) is the broth (false) is like saying the only difference between pizzas is the toppings; it makes all the difference.

I don't know what the previous reviewer is talking about. After returning from three years in Japan, I have been in search of authentic ramen. I finally found it today with Sushi Tora`s Tonkatsu ramen. I felt like I was back in Japan! I guess they have an actually ramen chef and you can tell from the first bite of... More
