Sushi Roku is a trendy and lively spot with a menu that hits all the high points of Japanese cuisine. The Roku Signature Style Sushi is a high-end delight to the taste buds, and the traditional sushi offerings encompass many hard-to-find ingredients. For example, monkfish liver, sea bream, and sake salmon are a few of the selections.

Chic and elegant barely touch the surface of the Pure dining experience. The inspired menu and beautiful atmosphere make a visit to this restaurant a true treat. The seafood is so fresh that it's easy to taste a hint of the ocean, with rare ingredients such as toro, uni, atama, and suzuki. The sashimi alone would be worth a visit, but the speciality sushi rolls take it over the top. The Angry Caterpillar roll, creamy baked lobster roll, Loch Ness roll and October Festival roll show off the creativity and skill of the team at the back of the house. This upscale restaurant is the kind of place that always makes it on the list for special occasions and other celebrations.

Obon does an excellent job at riding the line between upscale and casual dining, with an inviting atmosphere that's backed by a seriously delicious menu. The sushi menu is creative and lengthy, with signature rolls such as the Fukushu roll and the Rebel Without a Job. The sushi isn't the only highlight at Odon. All of the ramen is perfect for lunchtime, and the steamed buns are great for grabbing and going when a guest is in a hurry.

RA Sushi is a national sushi bar chain that focuses on creating a contemporary experience through unique sushi, an extensive drink menu and other Japanese dishes.

RA Sushi Restaurant has a trendy atmosphere featuring creative sushi, Japanese-inspired entrees and unique cocktails. This restaurant offers the perfect happy hour experience and is great for socializing. The specialty rolls use inventive flavor combinations to break the standards of sushi. The filet mignon tataki roll combines seared filet mignon with wasabi sauce, cucumbers, avocados and asparagus. The roll is finished off with a wasabi mustard vinaigrette. Another menu standout is the chili ponzu yellowtail roll, which is an incredibly spicy and savory twist to the yellowtail.

Roka Akor is a high-end Japanese restaurant with an unusual centerpiece - a giant Robata grill. This type of grill is designed to create incredibly high temperatures to add smokiness and deep flavors to skewered ingredients. Kobe beef is among the many high-end dishes that they serve here. The sushi menu offers a similarly elevated experience. Fresh wasabi accompanies all of the sushi and sashimi that goes out. The fish is incredibly high quality and has the bright and complex flavors that only the freshest of fish offers in the best sushi in Phoenix.
