“Funky Sushi Joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Younger crowd , but the food is great. After a few drinks and some sushi I believed I fit right in. Asked a few questions and they were answered and help with choices for the meal. Nothing quite delicious sushi in the middle of the desert.

“They did themselves proud.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

My daughter and I decided to have an early, light dinner at the La Encantada shopping center during our weekend trip to Tucson. RA Sushi appealed to our appetites and did themselves proud.
We decided to sit indoors at the indoor/outdoor bar. Despite outdoor temps in excess of 105 and the fact that the entire patio wall was open, where we were sitting was a comfortable temp (probably high 70’s) making a pleasant al fresco dining experience. The bartender/waiter was attentive and cheerful, and didn’t mind answering our many questions.
For our meal we chose Cucumber Kimchee, Seaweed Salad, Edamame Wontons and Scallop Dynamite Roll. The only thing ordinary about this meal was the seaweed salad. This is the same no matter where you go. The rest of the meal was stellar! All three of the other items we ordered were new to us. We had made our choices based on the bartender’s suggestions and were thrilled with the results. The cucumber’s natural cool sweetness combined with the mild spiciness of the kimchee sauce was a perfect side on hot day. Including edamame with the cream cheese in a fried wonton skin added a delightfully nutty flavor to this old standby. But the Scallop Dynamite Roll was by far the best part of the meal. One serving was plenty to share and both of us came away from this meal quite full.
Wrapping up - For drinks, my daughter had Kirin beer, I had Sterling chardonnay and the bill was under $50. By the time we finished the sun was setting and it was cooling down outside so we decided to explore the shopping center. Due to the day (Sunday) and the hour, most shops were closed but the offerings are an interesting assortment and we promised ourselves we’d come back.

“Great Japanese Fusion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We have been going to the conveyor belt sushi places for such a long time we forgot how good this place is. Not only can they make the old favorites but they also have their own American style, Mexican twist on things. Really delicious food, awesome service and nice outdoor seating.

“No better place for sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had dinner here and were able to eat outdoors and view the mountains. The tuna salad is to die for - seared ahi, jalapenos, cilantro, ginger soy dressing. Of course the sushi is wonderful too and if you like saki cold ( the way it is supposed to be drunk) they have a good selection. The wines are fine too. Happy hour is a great deal although ordering off the regular menu does not set you back too much. Inside eating can get a bit noisy so we prefer outside.
