This place was AWESOME!! We had a big party and they had no problem with us. Eric was our chef and his performance was outstanding. My 10 year old daughter was giving him a hard time and he was great with it. She was heckling him to death. We celebrated a birthday and going away party at the same time. This place went above and beyond. Go here and you will be extremely satisfied!!!
They stay open late, which means they keep their sushi out all night. Some of their rolls were creative, but that did not make up for the lack of quality and freshness in the fish. The decor was hip and modern, but the staff (and the late night patrons) looked more like street thugs than professionals.
we love this place and take family and friends there when they come into town to visit!!! Best in town!!!!
A good place to eat and a fun place to boot! Who could ask for more? The sushi is fresh and tasty and the sushi chefs can whip up most anything one could think of. Though the regular menu items are somewhat Americanized, they too are tasty, well-prepared and presented attractively. The full bar is a good place to hang out while the significant other shops 'til they drop at the La Encantada stores. I've not found the food to be overly salty or sweet (but, then again, I've only eaten there several dozen times). The bar and window tables are great places to people-watch as you enjoy your meal and drinks. Service is always friendly and both management and servers seem eager to provide a good dining experience.
Probably the best Sushi place in Tucson, in my humble opinion. I've been to several places around town before, but none as tasty as this place. Looks are deceiving: When you see the place from the outside, it is a hole in the wall, BUT the decor inside isn't too bad; It's cozy more than anything. The half dozen or so times I've been there have always been at night, and this place has always been packed. The miso is the best in town, hands down as well as the iced green tea. The rolls are a good size and the fish is fresh. I've recommended this place to friends and will continue to frequent this place for a long long time.
Worth every penny!!!
This might be a good place to get cheap sushi, but not so much high quality. I'm originally from Hawaii, so I know fresh fish, and what I got here made me pause even just looking at it. Eating it did not improve my estimate.
I've been brought there a couple of times by friends that love it, so clearly it works for some people, but I will turn down any future invitations to eat there.
Not what it used to be!! They are now too busy for quality!
What a dissapointment. we had been going to this restautant since it opened. Tonight, Friday before Valentine Day 2010 was such a dissapointment from any other ever enjoyed there in past. We arrived around 5:10 pm, early enough to beat the crowds! After seating a partial party, then moving them because their other diners would not be there for an hour, another party of three joined our table. Finally our cook came to the table after 6:20, the grill was over heated, he put the eggs on griddle and they promptly burnt to a discusting shade of black! He scrapped away the black egg, added the rice (to a still too hot griddle) and it became crunchy and scorched to a scary grey color. Oh did I mention the flying egg shell launched from his poor attempt of a clumsy show. My chicken was blackened to a crispy unidentifiable texture. He forgot I ordered shrimp and tried to give my order to the other party. The saddest of all was when expressing our first dissapointment in our dining experience, they did not care!!! They just said "oh" I'll tell the owner later!!! So very sad, they used to be great but are now reduced to not caring about their service and worse about their food quality!!!

If this is the DJ that performed at Armory Park for First Night down town 2009. He gets the croud jumpin. He's great!
RA is actually the best Sushi in Tucson. You get what you pay for, and none of the other Sushi restaurants can compare. Especially not Sushi Garden, YUCK! Cool atmosphere, and they really do have awesome specials during thier happy hour!
Nice atmosphere but that's were the fun stops. I mean some of the appetizers are OK, only when there're sold at happy hour prices mind you. Both times I an actual main courses they were WAY too salty and or WAY too sweet. Trust me, I like adventurous flavor but not when it's done like this. Wrong guys! The wannabes can have at it. I'll stick to Firebirds or Bluepoint when at La Encantada. Or, I can always go to AJ's, pay too much for grocery items and cook my own dinner.
Love this place. I come here with my gigantic appetite every week when I can. Their Hamachi sashimi is always fresh and their rolls are great. The workers are always down to earth and treat me and my family right.
The best sushi serving size in town. Fresh too. Always pleasant Pak and Aoki serve you up light conversation, too. You may walk in but, after filling up, you'll need to roll out.
Our favorite place if we're just craving Japanese and don't feel like spending a fortune. Half off select sushi rolls every day and great lunch box menu.
Yuck! My wife and I ate here last week... here's the rundown:
*Multiple hairs in the the tempura shrimp roll
*Sushi too warm... like it had been sitting out for a while
*Overpriced in general
...can't really think of any positives besides the sake buzz.
Such a fun little restaurant! You would never expect how nice it is from the outside. Service was friendly and probably the best sushi I've had in Tucson so far.
The Fusion Wasabi, formerly known as the Sky Blue Wasabi, is the best sushi in Tucson - guaranteed! It features the freshest fish and a great atmosphere. I have been there well over 100 times since it opened, and only once have I gotten a piece of fish not up to par. It was Blue Fin Tuna, which they no longer serve. They have an extensive menu which is only lacking halibut, which I love. The chefs are great, as well as the waiters/waitresses. I give my personal guarantee that you will have a great experience.

Portions are now smaller, no complimentary orange for dessert now. I have not tried the sushi, but the bento boxes and tempura are fried with cheap cooking oil that stays with you, and if your stomach is sensitive find a place that used olive oil or canola oil of a good quality. I Love Sushi was better a few years ago.
Not many know about this place -- word of mouth advertising keeps it plenty busy. Charming little sushi restaurant with a decided japanese flavor -- run by Japanese people -- so it's japanese approved. Owners are active in Tucson Japanese Association and local events. Only place we know of that gets fresh fish in daily and cuts it fresh -- not the quick, cheap dry sushi stuff at the all-you-can-stand places. You get what you pay for and this place is a nice, quiet, very great value for anyone who still believes in service without the crazy, loud crouds at other warehouse sushi scenes in Tucson!
