    Kanto beef is excellent. Also- the cucumber salad is delicious. Bursting with flavor and a touch of spicy. The rainbow crispy rice was excellent and unique. Cool idea having deep fried sushi rice as the bed for the sushi. It was great to see the place always busy at 4p on a Saturday. We look forward to coming back soon.

    The experience from the minute we walked in was terrific. The host was very friendly and accommodating. Wait staff was attentive and the food came out of the kitchen timely. Started with Bao Buns, had them all and loved them. Shared everything. Crispy rice with salmon, street noodles, Kanto beef and tonkotzu ramen. Every dish was delicious and we didn’t leave a bite.

    Their pot stickers, yellow tail sashimi and sticky rice combo was our favorites. I would say pricing is on the high side considering a local IPA (Dragoon) is $10 for 12 oz, hard to swallow a $15 pint of local beer. Besides it's a beautiful place and will come back.

    I am a annual visitor to Tucson for the mineral show, and my favorite sushi restaurant in Ginza, for first time tried OBON since it’s walking distance from my Hotel AC Marriott, OBON is a beautiful establishment, nice decor, very modern ambience and seating with very well lit rooms, and they have two seating bars, one front of the chefs and left of that facing the bar. Food it self is generous, very fresh but for my liking too much rice with the fish. The servers are very helpful and fast, so it’s fine restaurant, but food in my opinion 3stars

    Not the place for sushi. We ordered salmon nigiri and it was the worst we ever had. Salmon was dry like it had been sitting out for too long. Cuts of salmon were thin and it was over priced. Also the sushi too way too long to get to the table. The Vegas roll was good but over all this is NOT a good place for sushi.

    Amazing AMAZING food but was seated over 45 minutes after our reservation time + the music choice is horrible, would fit better in one of the college bars than a sit down restaurant, thankfully it was quiet enough you could tune it out for the most part. Definitely understaffed but again great and amazing food, I’d recommend making an early reservation and expect to be seated at least a half hour later. One couple had put down their names at 7 and were still waiting for a table at 8:30

    Food would have been great if one persons didn’t come out ten minutes after ordering and the rest of my party waited 45 minutes for their food. The service was absolutely terrible, once sat we waited 15 mins for drink orders, only to get those drinks 20 mins later.

    We booked a party of 8 for a birthday celebration and got sat on the patio (not our pick) The wind was really bad, so I asked to move closer to the building about 10 minutes after being seated and they did even better and moved us inside. They happily and swiftly accommodated our request and we were much more comfortable. It was a Friday night, so I am glad they were able to seat us properly. They did give us a Happy Hour menu, but I don't think our $16 drinks got discounted (yikes!). Overall, the service was great and the food was great. Thank you staff for making our dinner so pleasant!

    We made reservations for 5:15 because we had tickets to an event in the area. Other people obviously had the same idea, but OBON did not prepare by having adequate staff. It appeared that they only had 2 servers working the entire restaurant, which completely filled in about a 20 minute time span. Food and drinks took forever, and we had to ask repeatedly for the server to come take our order. In her defense, she warned us that the kitchen was backed up and our food might take awhile, but when we did finally get our food at 7:00, most of it was cold. We scarfed the food and ran to our event. I would think that a restaurant Downtown would be better at being aware of events in the area and handling pre-show crowds.

    Our server was excellent, he should be recognized for the service he provided to us. My Martini would be so much better if you would serve blue cheese olives. Our overall experience was great. It would be nice if the hostess could keep the big door closed. We were cold off and on sitting at the first high top table. We had to keep closing the door ourselves.

    The ramen here was phenomenal! One of those experiences that you can’t stop thinking of the food you had after you left lol We enjoyed the sushi rolls we had too, the fish just melted in our mouth. Server was attentive and polite. Comped one of our rolls because it took a while to receive. I will definitely be back.

    Went out with my boyfriend for an early dinner, we had an amazing time! The rolls are delicious and the nigiri is mouth watering, especially the eel. We sat at the high tops and the bar tender took care of us, don’t recall his name but he can make a mean margarita as well! Moved to Tucson last year and Obon is easily our favorite restaurant.

    Food was great! Sushi was so fresh. Food hot and fast. But the service was not good at all- waited 20 mins for drinks the kitchen runner was amazing and so kind- the waitress we had was just slow— restraunt was busy but not understaffed.

    Left without getting our food. Worst experience I’ve ever had there. Waited over 45 min for a drink. Half the food got delivered after an hour and finally asked for the check before ramen ever was served after over an hour. Multiple tables got served food after getting there long after our table. I’ve never had such a horrific experience there. It was also 64 degrees in the building and we were freezing. I used to love obon but I’m actually concerned about ever going back.

My husband is very particular about his drinks, server Danielle followed his instructions, and got him one of the best Old Fashioned drinks he has ever had. It was our first time dining at OBON, did not disappoint, will definitely be back! Thank you Luke and Danielle for making our experience so special!
