    We're regulars at RA and always order the Las Vegas roll and rainbow roll for happy hour. It is not only delicious but fresh as can be and meticulously prepared.

    It's been over 4 years since we lived in Tucson so Ra was one of our top picks for dining upon moving back. It did not disappoint! Food was amazing. Wait staff did try to give us two squid salads when we only ordered one - thanks but no thanks! We were stuffed! I don't care for 2 seat tables, even if we were only two people but the place wasn't even close to capacity so there was no need to put us in the corner. But most importantly, the food rocked! We enjoyed the lobster salmon roll and viva Las Vegas roll. Oh I forgot, the tuna sashimi was not good. I wouldn't eat it, too chewy and veiny for me. Rare for Ra to put out that low quality of fish but my husband ate it! :)

    Ra was awesome!!! Don't deny yourself! My wife and I went to Ra for our 11 year anniversary. Ra blew my mind. Now we only eat the rolls, we have not graduated to the "real" sushi. But what we had blew the rolls we have back in Indiana away.

    Great place to grab sushi, especially during Happy Hour. Drinks are poured well. Sushi prepared well. Noise level is a bit extreme. I felt like I was yelling across the table most of the night.

    They do have a wonderful lunch menu, and decent price. For dinner, it's ok if you like sitting in the disco to eat. Sushi/sashimi are great. Service was good. Terriyaki chicken udon noodle is way too salty, and chicken is over cooked, dry and chewy.

    Love RA, but the noise level is so high that you can only comfortably sit on the patio. We've asked the manager to turn down the music several times, but that is their norm and they will not turn it down. So, if the weather is not good, we do not go there because you have to yell to converse. Fortunately, if the weather is good, the patio is great.

    They were very good. The sushi of course not quite as good as Japan obviously, however the salmon sashimi exquisite sweet, salty and smokey. They other sushi rolls were very good we inhaled our food. The noise level was a bit much, but it has a bar ombeance so to be expected. Our Sever was fast and friendly and fair price for sushi. Overall for being in Tucson, Arizona this place was fantastic. I would highly recommend it.

    We had a late valentines day lunch at. RA. The Cupid option was delicious and just the right amount of food for a late lunch date. The ambience and location of our table was great. Our waiter however seemed preoccupied.

    This was a special Valentine deal offered over the Valentine weekend. We went on the Saturday. It was busy but the food and service were very good. We chose to sit out on the patio. It was quite loud inside. It was a lovely evening. The only thing that was a tad disappointing was that the dinner for two deal was not enough food. We had to order two more dishes. No worries though. The food was delicious and not over priced.

    Traditional items are perfect, but we enjoyed innovative rolls and great wines for lunch and strolled this mall, the best in Tucson, and had a great afternoon. We were tempted to return for more on the way to our car. It must be a great bar at night, indoor outdoor in Tucson with sushi, sake, and the requisite tequila. We have returned many times and this place is always fun, clean, and deliciously creative. You should go!

    Great food, amazing place! The calamari is the best I've had, and the Tuna Tataki is to die for. Drinks are definitely not for the light drinkers. Great ambiance, and not too loud for an evening out. Perfect for girls night. Our server was very knowledgeable and we definitely appreciated his recommendations. The staff was great and quick, but was a bit awkward because it felt like everyone working was in a bad mood. But overall a great experience.

    I had made a reservation at this place because I heard it was the best place for some type of sushi which I didn't get. The food is great but I had a problem with the service. I really don't like sitting at a huge table especially if it's only two of us. I had specifically asked for a table for two in the middle on the place far away from the wall and the lady have us the biggest table at the wall. I would've given this place five stars only if she would've payed attention to my request. So the food is good but service is a bit choppy. Try it out though you'll like it

    My husband and I were staying at Westward Look for the weekend and wanted to eat somewhere nice for dinner. We both recently discovered we like sushi but haven't ordered sushi at many restaurants. When we went to RA our dinner consisted of only sushi and edemame. The food was amazing! And the prices were excellent! We went during happy hour and got a ton of food and a couple drinks all for under $50. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly! We will definitely be going back!

    The restaurant itself is well known for the quality and service. I experienced both last weekend. I reserved the table online and it was ready for me when i arrived along with being called Mr. I went to celebrate a special occasion and even though there were kids there, it was very kid friendly and it did not get in my way of celebrating. The sushi chefs are very clean and quick and concentrate on their job and nothing else. I am very happy that "happy hour" was increased from 3-6 to 3-7 since a lot of us cant make those hours and feel rushed, so i had 2 hours to make the ladies happy with all the happy hour sushi and drinks and my wallet was happy. Highly recommend it

    Music was to hard. Even if they say that the loud music belongs to the concept. A party made to much nois and no remark was made to them. Above one is asked to give a remark on the noise level. There was not a change to chose 'to loud' and had to pick 'energetic' this was not the case!

    We were so impressed at how wonderful the food was and for such a great price too! We got so much food it was good and we left full but not stuffed it was really a fun time. The only thing was it was really loud, but towards the end of our meal it was less noisy as people were leaving. Other than that it was a great time!
