    RA is a great place to take kids that don't like fish, those on a budget, those that have never had sushi and those that don't want to pay for sushi. RA is the perfect place for beginners combining unfriendly service with mediocre quality fish and deafeningly loud music. The restrooms are filthy and when the servers aren't being unfriendly, they are nonexistent. If you've never had sushi, try RA for your first time. If you appreciate top quality fish and service, i recommend you try elsewhere.

    Best sushi I have ever had! The restaurant was packed and very noisy, but I would certainly go back when I'm in town. There is outside seating available, but I didn't view that area.

    I should have known that it would be from its Mill St address (near ASU), even on a week night. Appetizers were good, Sushi was average.

    As a chef, I expect to be disappointed often and this was not the case. The hostess was on her game, the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. We started with the RAkin' Shrimp appetizer which was a delicious and unusual way to fry shrimp with a creamy sauce so good we poured it over the green underneath and ate it as a salad. I had the teriyaki salmon bento box and the salmon was cooked to perfection with just a hint of pink, moist and not over-sauced. The veg was tender yet had texture, the white sushi rice was also perfectly cooked and so tasty it needed no seasoning. My husband had the Rainbow roll which was also very good and lovely to look at. We had drinks and this meal for right at $50!! What a find!! Chef Jill

    Their Tunacado was outstanding. The sushi was very fresh and well made. We had several of their rolls, which were delicious by the way.

    Sushi is FANTASTIC, but I left very angry because the service was so terrible. I made reservations and arrived early, but they told me I had to wait for a table. I had a few people bring a friend, so I didn't mind waiting. Finally crammed in a booth, my server never checked the table or stuck around long enough to even take any real orders. Food and drink orders were wrong and took a LONG time. After being the last guests in the back section and having to track the server down to get the checks my bill was wrong. Server just said "well that was the sushi you wrote on the paper" instead of explaining there are two rolls with basically the same name. I never saw the other roll in the menu(s) which are hard to find descriptions in I might add.

    If so this is the place for you. Not a restaurant but a bar that serves Japanese food as snacks. It was deafeningly noisy. If it weren't for the sweet waitress who was kind to my 85+ yr old parents we would not think much more of this place. As a college professor I understand the appeal but nope, it's not for me. Even though I booked this table in advance (we were visiting from out of town) and asked for a booth which is quieter for folks with hearing impairments through our Open Table reservations, we instead got a table in the middle of restaurant traffic and near the bar. We ordered small dishes because we wanted to get out of there as fast as we can.
