I'm partial to this place because my now wife and I had our first date here, but we have continued to come back on a regular basis. Sushi is great and they always have new and unique rolls. The Tuna Poke is great as well. Staff is friendly, 80's music always playing. Love it

If you really like sushi rolls with sauces on them, then this is probably a good restaurant for you. The owner is nice and knows his customers. The service at the sushi bar is good. But for specialty sushi such as toro and uni, you need to go somewhere else as they are never on the menu.

Visiting friends in Gilbert and this place was highly recommended on Yelp. Was friday after, they open at 5pm, in July in Phoenix (hot!) We got there 5 minutes before they open, and there was already a crowd standing around waiting for the doors to open. In Phoenix in the summer that's a big deal, so we were excited. The... More

Great sushi and good service! The owner is making your food and there seemed to be lots of regulars there and familiar banter at the small sushi bar.

Went here last week with friends for the first time. Will most definitely be back! Friendly service. Fantastic food. We went with another couple and ordered edamame and miso soup while we waited for our 4 rolls. The best roll? too hard to say...but we loved all the ones we got: Primo, Something Good, Salmon Pepper and Las Vegas. We... More

Now the sushi menu is the largest I have ever seen! But what I fell in love with most was the Tuna Poke, and the varying levels of heat you can apply (1-10). We started out with a 7, during our appetizer course, and for dessert we went back for more Poke (heat level 10). The portion of Poke here... More

This is not your typical Sushi restaurant. Temari's offers 100's of specialty rolls with unusual, but more importantly, delicious sauces. You can request spiciness on a scale of 1 to 10. My favorite Sushi restaurant, BAR NONE.

Our Family has been going to Temari for many years. Food quality is excellent as well as the service. It feels very authentic. Dining area is small, so be sure to get there early or you will be waiting for a table.
