My wife and I go to lots of Japanese restaurants. This one had a large and varied menu of creative sushi rolls, nigiri sushi and sashimi. They also had an excellent selection of cooked items.

I ordered their signature ramin, "Ra"min, which was just average. The base was bland and the noodles just average in taste, quality and texture. Their sushi was above average in fish quality and texture.

The biggest issue was how long it took to receive the ramin. The sushi arrived promptly, but the ramin took a very long time to obtain. It would also have been nice if our server had worn his mask over his nose and mouth, which he never did. I'm not sure I'd go back before trying other Japanese restaurants on my next visit to Baltimore.

Dinner with 5 coworkers. Easy and quick seating. Sushi was not bad but nothing to rave about either. My coworkers enjoyed their time. Service was friendly but very slow. Nothing bad about the wait staff but I just assume they were short staffed and busy; even though the place was about half full the whole time we were there.

I ordered toro sashimi and it was terrible- so chewy & sinewy I couldn't even chew it enough to swallow it. I told our server and her response was "I don't eat raw fish, so it all tastes bad to me." She offered to bring something else instead which I declined, but the toro was still on our check at the end.
The other sushi dish I had (hamachi chili ponzu) was not very good either- extremely fishy tasting. The person I was with had ramen, which he said was fine.

Great quality rolls and amazing value. The kitchen was a bit behind so two out of our four person party waited a bit longer for their meals, but otherwise was a great experience and we will def be back!

We made a reservation for 6. We were seated quickly but after waiting 15min, a server still hadn’t come to get our drink orders or bring water. I had to ask the hostess to send over a server. Over the course of our meal our server was never in sight. We consistently had to flag him down to get his attention. He would be actively walking away while we were still trying to talk to him.

The food was great, the only saving grace. But the service was truly horrible, very inattentive and made the entire experience a little disappointing.

This is not a real sushi restaurant. This is a restaurant for people who *want* to like sushi, but don't like raw fish. It was very disappointing. Once the server saw us, she was very nice. But I had to ask the host to send us a server after waiting for 10 minutes unseen. The table was a little sticky. The drinks had very little alcohol in them but were very sugary. The menu is online only (please don't make that a trend - we need to put down our phones in restaurants and talk to our friends), and more than half of the sushi items had Krab in them or were cooked. Like I said, this is not a real sushi restaurant. We won't be back. I should also mention that this is the first time I've ever left a review for a restaurant. That's how disappointed I was with this place.

This place is always a go to spot for spectacular sushi and drinks. I've been here at least twice this month if not more. Whenever the family want to eat out we seem to usually choose RA Sushi. The staff is always polite. The greet you as soon as they see you. I have not had any issues with this place whatsoever.

We arrived and took a table at the bar. Our waiter Ethan greeted us and took our drink and appetizer order. It took a little while to get our beverages but I’ll wait or eventually showed up with our drinks and took our meal orders. We waited for our food to arrive and when it came it was our appetizers and our meal all at the same time that was a little bit of a bummer because our meals at getting cold while we ate the appetizers. For my meal we ordered hibachi which was relatively pricey considering, but I ordered the shrimp and scallop hibachi meal. When the meal arrived the colossal shrimp were very chewy ; so much that I couldn’t even swallow them, so I alerted the manager. The manager came and said she would have the shrimp made again from the kitchen. When the shrimp arrived the second time they weren’t as chewy but were still were not cooked to perfection. Finishing my first glass of wine I ordered a second glass, and about 30 minutes later our waiter shows up, and asks if I received my wine yet I said no I have not received my wine, and I wasn’t sure if I want it. The waiter pressed a bit, and said he could get the wine. 25 minutes later still no wine so I decided I did not want wine and I would rather have the check. Overall, not the normal experience that I have when at Ra. Not sure what to make of this.

RA used to be very nice, but has really gone down hill since the last time I was there about two years ago. The main issue was the very evident wear and tear on the restaurant in general it felt very unloved and shabby. There were things in need of obvious repair and a good deep clean in the bathroom and around the restaurant. The state of the restaurant would keep me from returning personally, but the staff was prompt and friendly and the food was good so if you don’t care about aesthetics I would say go for it!

We chose RA Sushi Bar and Restuarant to try their Ramen. It totally met our expectations. The broth was tasty and the chicken was tender. The service was friendly and fast for a Saturday evening and holiday weekend! The cocktails are always good, and we can't wait to patronize them again. This time we are going to bring our friends and family.

WORST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD. HORRIFIC. I could not wrap my head around service that bad. I have never asked to see a manager before, and even she was awful. The only thing she offered us were expired coupons to RA from 2019. It was almost comical

This was the worst service I have ever had at this place didn’t get half of my food ordered. Took them 30 mins to come to my table to place order. Food came out before the drinks even a glass of water. Asked for the bill 20 minutes later waiter comes ask me if I need a refill on my water no I asked for the check comes back 15 minutes later charged me for items never received and had items of someone else order. I took a friend that never been here and had the worst experience. Then rushed and stood at the table while waiting for payment. Rating 0 if possible for service 3 on the food rating disappointed didn’t receive half of my food.

Waited 20 minutes for any help and a glass of water and after that we got a waiter that rushed over only couple times and would stay for only a moment so we had issues just getting just about everything and luckily we realized this and asked for the check super early to get out in time to go somewhere we had planned on being and we’re almost late to even though we barely had time to eat (tried to give ourselves a 2hr window but couldn’t in that time). Also seemed a lot more like an American restaurant than any sushi one

The restaurant was filthy. We were the only customers in their and it had just opened for the day. My shoes stuck to the bathroom floor, the toilets were all dirty, and there was no toilet paper in sight. In the dining area there were trash cans overflowing and stuff on the carpet everywhere. The furniture and finishes were in bad shape and need a makeover. The food was good but I didn’t feel very good a out ordering raw food in such a dirty place. We will not be back. No wonder we were the only ones there.
