We have eaten here 18-20 times; for lunch 25% of the time and dinner 75% of the time. The food is consistently good, and the service has been very good as well. The sushi is fresh and the vegetables crunchy and tasty, especially the cucumbers. I've had the grilled salmon and the chicken teriyaki as well, and the hot foods are pretty close to as good as the sushi. Plum ice cream for dessert seems to be standard without asking. The iced green tea is refreshing as well. A definite favorite of ours.
Just discovered this place not too long ago and it is delicious! The rolls are on the smaller side but the sushi is good and service is attentive. For a dinner for two of appetizer, 3 sushi rolls, chicken teryaki, 2 large beers and a large sake we walked out paying $65 which wasn't bad. Definitely must try!
BEST SUSHI IN TOWN!!!! AND BEST FRIED RICE TOO!!!!
we love this place and take family and friends there when they come into town to visit!!! Best in town!!!!
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.
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!
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 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.

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!
This is not Japanese like the headline says. This is pure Chinese food and very good at that. Great dim sum mostly decent service. and atmosphere ain't bad either.
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.
Worth every penny!!!
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.
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 food is good but a little pricey. The hostess, Cheyenne, was a real treat!
The teppanyaki tables are always a fun, though warm, experience. Your choice of meats cooked with an entertaining show right before your eyes. Like I said, the teppanyaki tables are a warm environment and your drinks tend to get warm unless they're quaffed soon after serving. A good place to take a large group or just the two of you.
The sushi here is good, BUT the past three times I have gone (over the course of 1+ year), has been the worst I've experienced.
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.
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.
