Best Bento box outside Japan

We came to eat at the neighboring Thai place which turned out to be closed after we made a special trip. We noticed Sushi Zona (new name but same location as Sushi Yukari. What a happy accident. This is the best Japanese food we have had outside Japan. We both had the Deluxe Bento box which was a... read more

This restaurant is far from where we live so it has been awhile since we've dined there. But we happened to be in the neighborhood tonight so decided to drop in. We first learned about this place in Japan. We met a Japanese woman in Aizu who had attended the University of Arizona and said this was the best Japanese... More

We went twice on 3 days. Our company insisted on going back for a second round and it was even better. The name will soon change to SUSHI ZONA River and Craycroft 15 min from Ventana

Yukari Sushi used to have the greatest Japanese menu in Tucson. It had so many dishes that I've never seen in any other Japanese restaurant in America. They have since changed hands, and the food is now middling and the menu exactly like every other one out there-- even a little less extensive. It's a real shame.

We have been going to this restaurant for years and unfortunately it appears like there maybe a new owner. We found the soup that I have been getting forever to have three times the amount of noodles, less meat, same for my husband's soup and my mom got the tempura Halibut which was four 1inch x 1inch pieces for $9...

I love this family owned local sushi spot. It was the only place I could eat when I was pregnant. The Agedashi tofu is superb. not greasy. light fluffy tofu and a delicate sauce. Yukari is awesome. she is personable and friendly. The quality of the sushi is tops! I HIGHLY recommend this place. I don't like sashimi much but... More

Great food and authentic flavors. Service not very friendly unfortunately and ambiance isn't great. But food is definitely worth putting up with the rest.

Went with a group of 10 people. Made a reservation. Place not very big. Casual atmosphere. Completely crowded at 6:30, people had to wait. Lots of Asian clientele, which is a good sign. Large menu....focusing on ALL types of Asian food, so I didn't really expect them to produce 5 star sushi. Most everyone in our group ordered sushi or... More

We've enjoyed Sushi Yukari many times. The menu is huge - we love the tempura, curry, udon, ramen, fish and bento box meals. The service is great too - friendly and courteous. If you enjoy a cozy pleasant atmosphere with great authentic Japanese food and very nice people - Yukari's is definitely a restaurant you should try.

I have never seen a menu chock full of dishes that was crammed into 12 pages. Hard to choose. Went with a few couples and it was delightful. Was not crowded on a Sat. night about 6.00PM and we actually could hear ourselves speak. Everyone ordered different dishes and they all seemed to enjoy them. I had the Tempura Udon... More
