    I've eaten here quite a few times and I've always enjoyed it. The sushi is good, the food is good and the this time the service was even good. Sometimes the service can be lacking but this time it was 2 thumbs up. Thanks.

    Good: Drinks were good and reasonably priced. Not-so-Good: So-so fusion cuisine; overpriced. The music was loud and the tables longer than one would expect, making it difficult to talk at an intimate volume. Cardinal Sin: We literally did not go more than five minutes without being pestered by the staff. The manager visited our table four times (we gave no reason to do so). Our waitress, ten. Let your customers dine in peace!

    I really enjoyed coming to Ra Sushi for lunch! I've missed having a Ra Sushi around (used to live much closer to one when I was in AZ), and it just so happened that I was down in Torrance from LA for work that day. Celebrated my half birthday (LOVE that Ra does half birthdays--brilliant!) with a nice, quiet lunch. The Chirashi Bowl was really yummy & suuuper filling, even without eating the giant bowl of rice. I'd say the Scallops Dynamite was eh, alright--will try something else next time. Service was excellent! I can't remember his name, but the one bartender/server they have for lunch is super nice, prompt, and courteous. Thank you for a wonderful half birthday lunch!!

  • Tasty New Sushi Place

    Dined on 2/8/2014
    My friends and I went out hoping to find a tasty new sushi place. We found it. RA has Japanese decor with a cool red and black flair. I wanted an alcoholic drink and was pretty impressed by the selection - not something I usually find at sushi. The food selection was pretty standard until we start reading the rolls. They have some exciting twists on old favorites. Overall, we all liked the places a lot and were pleasantly surprised when the bill came and it was completely affordable!

    I was sooo in the mood for sushi and I ordered all tasty sounding rolls with spicy ingredients, however the food was bland and overpriced. The drink specials were decent and our server was very nice. I wouldn't eat here again though, for the price it just wasn't worth it.

    Second visit and the food was just as good both times. Cocktails were imaginative. Some of the items were unique, proportions ideal. However, the first time I ate here and made a reservation with Open Tbale i did not get credit although this time I did.
