I am extremely dissapointed with the tucson weekly voting this the best sushi in tucson. Fake Ahi tuna?? thats right its just whitefish died red. I cant stand cheep sushi no matter how "cool" the inside looks. Do yourself a favor and eat pretty much anywhere else but there.
We loved the Speedway location; however, the same food we normally order- sesami chicken and Sushi was not even edible and portions small.
David, did you loose your cooks or what, we will never return. After 8 years of twice a week patronage we are deeply disappointed
Cheesy low budget sushi. One time I got a piece of glass in my sushi rice. The owner tried to just give me a free dessert to make up for it. I should have sued.
I quit going to this place. The owner flat out refused to give us hot towels unless we sat at the sushi bar. The service got increasingly horrible. One night the waiter seemed to be on drugs and broke down crying at our table over some misperception he had over another customer. The place is run down and dirty. The sushi was big portions but I think it was mediocre at best. I strongly suggest going elsewhere like to sushi on Oracle.

Excuse me - do you, Jacqueline, have a clue what $25 per person for 4 people buys in a really great but not over-priced place - with a tip we're at say $120+
There's something missing in your value system. Graduate and get a job and get connected to reality.
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.
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!!!

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.
