“One of the Best in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

We've now eaten at Ginza 3-4 times, and we have eaten at most of the Sushi restaurants in town and Ginza really stands out. Fresh, tasty, knowledgeable servers and interesting specials. At our most recent dinner there were 4 of us. The highlight was the specials- A mackerel (think smoked), a slightly seared salmon, and another fish (striped bass?) that was lightly seasoned w/ sea salt and a vinaigrette. Excellent. Didnt need any soy. Got the standard fare too- misc nigiri, spicy tuna rolls, vegas and caterpillar rolls plus uni. The menu is very large w/ plenty of non-sushi items. If like Sushi need to try it

“Best sushi in Arizona - jewel of the desert”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 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 bubbles 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!
