Good sushi.

The sushi is spendy, but the drinks are great. Try some appetizers and be sure to find a comfy place to sit.

Heard about it and decided to try it. Sushi was very good. Beer battered fries were excellent - perfectly cooked and served with delicious dipping sauces. Calamari was very good as well. Service was excellent. I've eaten all over the world and would suggest giving it a try.

I have dined here twice now, and I must say that I find myself craving their sushi more than anywhere else in Spokane. The atmosphere is very trendy and it's a great to place to unwind.. it is dark inside, and the servers are very friendly and not uptight. The food is very good as well. The portions are on... More

I'm not into sushi, but a few coworkers wanted to eat there. Before we were seated, we were asked how long we'd be and if we had reservations. I didn't like being quizzed about my dining experience before we ate. I found their food bland and overpriced. The waitress was slow although it didn't appear that they were very busy.... More

Ate here for 3rd time, great food and good service. Creative menu with fun food and drink names. Still rate this as Spokan's #1 Sushi site.

My wife and I heard that Raw was the best sushi around, and that the atmosphere couldn't be beat. All lies I'm sorry to say. The place was dirty and the food was very much below average, but at least the staff was friendly. Want to have a few drinks with your friends? Go to Raw. Want to eat a... More

We went with 10 adults for my husband's 30th birthday. The staff was attentive and made excellent recommendations. I thought the sushi was above average. We ordered several apps. Steamed dupplings, calamarie, and tempura zuchcini; all very good! The winner of the evening was lime coconut peppered ahi. It was awesome! With every bit you could taste the diffrernt layers...

Nice cozy atmosphere, a touch of the eclectic. I've loved everything I have tried. My favorite sake is the plum, served warm!

This was recommended to us by our concierge at the hotel. Waited too long outside suffering through smokers next to the door (tacky- isn't there a law against this). The hostess acted like we had asked for a kidney in trying to expidite our seating-since we were not offered to wait at the bar. The rice was cooked improperly and... More
