“Consistently good.”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We love this place, every time we come we are welcomed and sat in a timely fashion regardless of how busy they are. I am not sure why we haven't reviewed them sooner. Last nights experience was by far the best. We had a cheeky server who was on top of everything and kept us on our toes. Food as always was incredible, try the crazy monkey roll it is super creative, nothing like I have ever had and still the flavors married perfectly. All over awesome experience.

“Great happy hour specials”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Happy hour here is from 4-7 and starts again at 10. Great sushi! Several great items on the happy hour list. Definitely recommend the seared ahi tuna appy. We went to the one in Kierland Common but understand there is one in Old Scottsdale as well. A bit noisy inside during happy hour but much quieter on the patio. Great service!

“Great sushi”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Been to many sushi places lately and Ra doesn't disappoint. Seared ahi tuna appetizer was delicious but a little too small a serving. Their spicy scallop crunch roll however was fantastic. Nice ambiance with great service . Would definitely recommend.

“Noisy during happy hour”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Went for dinner in the early evening and caught a bit of their happy hour. Most of the diners were younger people and the noise level in the restaurant confirmed that fact. However we enjoyed the food - I had the calamari tempura which was as good as I have tasted in the recent past. Surely worth dining here for that restaurant. My wife had the eel and thoroughly her meal. It is certainly a place we would visit again but perhaps closer to 8 PM.

“Overpriced but a great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Ra has an amazing atmosphere and delicious sushi but for the price I expected much more. The sizes are relatively small compared to other sushi joints in the area. The drinks are not priced right BUT they have one of the best happy hours in the valley. Great menu too- they just need to rethink some of the pricings for certain items.
