Beautiful Restaurant, Great Sushi

I live close to RA Sushi and love sushi but for some reason had not been to RA until today when I was invited to lunch with a dear friend. I loved the interior so bright and cheery with ample red used in the decor. It was fun to watch the sushi chefs work their magic, making it look so... read more

We visited this restaurant on a Monday evening and it was still hopping although we were quickly seated during their happy hour that goes until 7pm! Ordered the sizzling shrimp soup which I highly recommend for its zingy flavor broth, shitake mushrooms, tofu and shrimp - just be sure to wait till it cools off or your tongue will tingle... More

Recently sat at the bar on a slow night, had a few pieces of Nigiri and crispy spicy tuna which is my favorite. Pineapple wontons were a bit off but the bartenders were more then accommodating! Miley in particular was great and very friendly. I'll be back as usual next time I'm in town. Thanks :)

If you're looking for an authentic-feeling Japanese family restaurant, this is probably not your place. But if you're happy with a modern American-looking fusion-type atmosphere that serves decent Japanese food, consider Ra Sushi. You won't find Japanese chefs at the sushi bar, but you will get good miso, bento, sushi, tempura, and other Japanese favorites. Japanese beer and sake are... More

We always make a trip, or two, to RA when we are in Arizona. Last year we were in Phoenix for a couple of days and went back 3 times, one time was on the way to the airport. It is superb sushi, my husband thinks it is wonderful, and he has had it all over the world. This is... More

For imaginative, tasty and beautifully presented Japanese delicacies, there is none better than RA, in La Encantada. Prepared to perfection, their Sushi Special tonight was lobster on a small wedge of fried rice in a sauce that was indescribably delicious. The rolls are exquisite and consist of out of the ordinary taste combinations. The service is also top notch. Bryce,... More

I love a place that has a sake selection with in depth descriptions and comparisons by region and types. The sushi is pretty creative and the fish is very fresh. Miso is classic style and some of the fusion bits on the menu are pretty good. I come back year after year when I visit TUS. I'll be back next... More

I like to stop here for a drink outside and a bit of people watching after shopping. Service is excellent and sushi great.

I have eaten here many times, and the food is of high quality. I had the grilled chicken salad last time, and my only criticism is that the chicken was a little on the dry side. My friend had salmon sushi with avocado, which was great. I prefer to eat on the patio, where the music is not too loud.
