    Whenever my girlfriends and I need to go to HH we always choose Ra. They have a BIG HH menu and it goes until 7 which is the latest Ive found. After dinner there is still time to shop around a few stores at Kierland. It is a great spot and can get busy but they will take reservations.

    Very loud music playing with heavy bass. Two other customers commented about it and they did turn it down twice but it was still loud. The food was average. Service was poor. 25 minutes between asking for check and leaving. Would not go back.

    This was my second time dining at RA Sushi and I've enjoyed both times. The Saki and Kirin complimented my Spicy Salmon Roll quite well ! I will be coming out there again very soon.

    I am from out of town and sat at the sushi bar by myself, which I do frequently and doesn't bother me but the waitress and the woman at the sushi bar made it so difficult that I could only order certain items from each person. I wanted to try different things and was not aware if they were 'hot' or 'cold' items but when I ordered a 'cold' item from the waitress, the woman behind the sushi bar spoke sternly that I was to only order 'cold' items from the bar. I had also ordered a sushi roll, that I did not know was 'hot', from the paper you fill out when you first sit down. When I asked about the item, the woman behind the sushi bar answered 'that's a 'hot' item, did you order from the waitress?

    When I made a reso for 6:45 I didn't realize it was still part of hh, but we decided to take advantage of it once we found out. I thought what great luck, making it just in time. Nope. Everything had obviously been pre-rolled and left to die in a fridge. Rice wasn't sticky, rather it was falling apart and hard. The rolls tasted like mush so we wouldn't even finish them. The yellowtail and salmon nigiri were ok, aside from the rice of course. Seaweed salad was fine. Also, we sat outside since it was a nice evening and all you could smell was the sewer. Horrid. Not their fault, but it sure was nasty. Highlight of my night? Walking to Barnes and noble and ordering a rice krispie treat bc the whole night was already blown! Hah

    First time being to this location. The experience was excellent however! The service was awesome and the food was even better! It was quite loud but mostly because of a large party that was there. I would definitely go back!

    I had a variety of the "starters" and found they were alright, but not great. The tempura vegetables left a lot to be desired. The wings were very good, but with no dipping sauce, they could have been better. Sushi, the Las Vegas roll, was very good. Also tried the lobster rolls. Again, good, but nothing to write home about. The inside of the restaurant was very loud so sitting outside was a welcome relief. I went to socialize and it would have been too loud inside to have much of an intimate conversation. Overall a good experience, but not great.

    As people who usually choose small independently owned sushi bars my husband and I were a bit skeptical about this chain restaurant. The quality of the fish was excellent, the service very attentive and the value offered by the Valentine special impressive!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    My girlfriend wanted to try this place out for her birthday dinner. I made a reservation for 3 on Open Table for a Thursday night. I had never been before so I didn't know what to expect. It was a nice little place, with nice outdoor seating. Sushi was pretty good at a fair price, but nothing was over the top amazing. I was a bit dissapointed in the service as I had intentionally mentioned in the reservation that it was a birthday dinner for my girlfriend in which I included her name and a request to make our first dinner here memorable. The hostess acknowledged that we had a reservation but no one acknowledged at anytime that we were first time guests or that we were there to celebrate a birthday. Wouldn't be my 1st choice for sushi again.

    Coming from out of town I searched restaurants near our hotel and found RA Sushi. The half birthday offer was a nice touch to the usual birthday discounts offered.

    We arrived 15 minutes before our rez and were immediately seated. We were not greeted for 10 minutes so we were close to leaving. The Manager approached and asked if we had been helped and insured we got water and our app order in. He then came to the table and comped our apps! After the slow start we were impressed by the food and service. Prices were reasonable for this part of Scottsdale. We tried the Las Vegas Roll and various sushi. The fish was very fresh and we would return.
