“Best sushi in Arizona - jewel of the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

I travel all over the west cost, lived in California for most of my life and know sushi! First time in Tucson 10 year ago, no sushi was acceptable. Ginza however is now my favorite place in the West. Chef owner and family run. Always amazingly fresh, superbly perpared and good portions. A jewel in the desert!

“Sushi to die for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Amazing place, the food was some of the best we have eaten on our trip. Everything we tried was perfect, the Ika Geso, fried calamari gorgeous and full of flavour. The Nasu Agedashi, fried Japanese eggplant was a complete revelation and something I will be looking for on future menu's. The jumbo pork Gyoza dumplings and the Shumai pork steamed dumplings were exceptionally delicious. The nigiri and maki all exceptional, I cannot rave enough about the food it was wonderful. To top it off you have smiling faces and exceptional service. We were delighted to find such a fantastic gem in Tucson and have every intention of returning before we leave to go back to England.

“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

My daughter, husband and I decided to try Ginza based on the reviews we found here. We are from the east coast so are able to find excellent sushi there. We were delighted to find that Ginza Sushi offers excellent, fresh sushi and sashimi at a reasonable price. The sashimi pieces are larger than we have found at other restaurants and the sushi rolls were delicious. We also had gyoza dumplings, delicious. We will definitely be back!

“Hands down the best sushi in Tucson ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

I go to Ginza every Friday. After living in Okinawa for 2 years, this place lives up to my sushi and izakaya expectations! The fish is the highest quality and always fresh, the wait staff (Kim, Donna, Shuka, and Kumiko) are friendly and knowledgable, the sushi chefs (Tony and Tanaka) create masterpieces, and the owners (Hun and Diana) create an amazing atmosphere and authentic Japanese experience.
