    We had the beef teriyaki and tempura and found them bland. The cut of meat was good but the flavor was not enticing. Service was very rushed . Drinks and 3 courses served almost simultaneously. Out in 45 minutes.

    Their food just isn’t good anymore. I used to go once a week and be a regular with girlfriends but the rice on the rolls was hard and not sticky, the garlic edamame does not have the same flavor it used to, and the pineapple cheese wontons seemed like they came fresh from the freezer to the oven

    The food was good but wow. The service was so below par that it felt like they were purposely trying to be rude. On top of running out of cups and multiple food/drink items .. the least we expected was a friendly server to make up for it.

    Food was great, but the service was poor and when I spoke with the server, he said he didn’t care. Can’t top that. The restaurant is very dated and could use a good cleaning. Disappointed customer.

    I love sushi. Unfortunately, I left Ra disappointed. My wife and I went with a couple of friends for a nice evening out. The company was great but the restaurant left a lot to be desired. I think there are different levels of sushi but unfortunately this rated near the bottom. Although the service was OK, the sushi was poor. The rice was dry and the fish was tasteless. I will say our order came out very quickly, almost to quickly. It was almost like it had been premade. Typically when you order sushi you can expect a little wait as the sushi is made fresh for you. The back room off the bar, where we were seated was hot and the floors were dirty. We ordered a rainbow roll, spicy tuna rolls, shrimp tempura, tootsie maki rolls, crunchy shrimp rolls, ultimate shrimp rolls and even more. Nothing stood out. Just not the experience we expected. I really hope management takes a better look at the quality of the product they’re serving and improves.

    It was my daughters 18th birthday I indicated that on the reservation the restaurant and our server didn’t mention it at all. I mentioned it to my server and he took so long to come back to us he must have forgot at that point I was annoyed and just wanted the bill. Food was bland I mean no flavor at all it was awful. We ordered teriyaki steak hibachi it literally had no teriyaki sauce or flavor at all I think the chef totally forgot to season it We love sushi and there are many options out there very disappointed

    Booked a table for Happy Hour. The menu is not great and the service while friendly was slow. The overall quality of the food requires some attention. Happy Hour should offer a tasting of some of the best foods on your menu. Not the case here. I have been here before and had a better experience. There are far better restaurants in Old Town. I hope this one will continue to approve and focus on improving the food.

    First time here. Plenty of options to choose from. We were on a double date and ordered a few appetizers and a bunch of different rolls. The food was fresh and we didn’t have to wait long. The rolls kept falling apart when picked up, so that made a mess and hard to eat but the flavors were great. Waitstaff was attentive and friendly.

    I had two bad experiences here before from a specific server but my boyfriend and I decided to give it another shot and the manager and bartender David took amazing care of us. He was personable, friendly, and very attentive. He made sure we had everything we needed and actually redeemed the restaurant, if we were to come back we’d probably only want him as our server, he was fantastic! The food was really great as well and we really had a good time thanks to him :)

    RA sushi - both Scottsdale locations is our go to for sushi. Fresh, plentiful and tasty. Staff is excellent. However, this visit, the glass door to the outside seating area was dirty as was the glass enclosures for the fish. Not sure if it is the time of year and being an indoor/outdoor restaurant that dust from trees is collecting...but, it just wasn't as clean as it usually is.

    We love RA sushi and come here every time we are visiting the area. The food was great but we felt like this location has become run down much like the rest of the old town area. We will keep coming for the awesome food, but may choose to switch locations to one that is cleaner and more maintained in the future.

    We were sat promptly since we did make a reservation. We were not greeted for about 15 minutes even though the tables around us were sat after us and being helped. We finally had our server come over, and rushed through everything for our order as it seemed like we were forgotten about. We love the food, however the service was not great.
