Would only eat outdoors. Very, very noisy inside.
Really fresh and delicious chirashi...sirloin steak,
Caterpillar roll as well as the tempura, calamari roll were all enjoyed by our friends.

I usually like RA (Phoenix area) but not this night in Tucson. Service was slow, food was cold, and just didn’t have the good flavors I am accustom to.

Maybe they were just having a bad night..

HORRIBLE!!!! Food was equivalent to something frozen heated up in a microwave! The Miso soup was warm water with salt & a lot of chopped green onions. I had chicken on rice & steamed veggies with no flavor, and I'm pretty sure the chicken is the same as what you find precooked in double bags sold at Costco, although those might have more flavor! I have encountered mediocre service & food in other places but this truly was terrible! It might be dangerously full of sugar & preservatives but Panda Express has tastier food at half the cost (or less, since we ordered off the lunch menu)! The server apologized for bringing out diet coke when we ordered regular stating that she's "been telling management the lines were switched & they weren't fixing it" so she's "been dealing with it all day!". Apparently that was our problem! I used the ladies restroom to find that someone ruined the regular toilet (very disgusting!) & upon going into the handicapped one (only two toilets in there) found the door latch to be missing, not broke but totally missing! The door swings OUT ! I used the handles of my purse to secure the door for my privacy! Then as I left there was only a cook at the sushi bar available to speak to & after I advised it needed attention he said sorry for the inconvenience & then told no one ... I watched him for about 10 min & no one in uniform walked into the restroom! At high noon only the bar looked busy but in all there was no reason the dining area couldn't be serviced to a higher standard.

we sat outside because it was a nice evening, unfortunately the misters that are on the roof of the patio sprayed us all night, nothing like being in a light drizzle. also, the food was the sushi equivilant of a chili's bar and grill. it wasn't terrible, but it also was not noteworthy. I would call this meal satisfying, but nothing more.

Ra at La Encantada has been great for the decade I've been able to go there. Always excellent, especially if the Toro is in stock. Bring a lot of friends and plan on a couple hours of sushi and drinks and more sushi for the best experience.

I had made a reservation for my sons birthday. Request a surprise dessert brought out at the end of our meal.
Places order and got our food all but my sons (yup the birthday boy). Asked the waitress over 4 times about his lobster roll. They came with lobster eggrolls. Sent back and again had to wait. He literally didn't get his food until we were all done eating. And to top it off had to remind them about the dessert. Not only did I make a notation about the request but I called the restaurant to ensure it was done. When they brought it out they said sorry we ran out of candles. So yes the experience was far from enjoyable.

Outstanding food nicely plated and served. Our waiter, Peter, did an excellent job, and his timing was perfect. The only slightly negative thing I would say about Ra is that the background music is too loud for a lunch or dinner setting in which people would enjoy conversing with each other without having to keep raising their voices. Will I come back? Absolutely!

Excellent service! and the sushi options were good, for Arizona that is.
Inside noise levels were far too loud, so we opted for a table outside and were instantly accommodated.
We took advantage of the "happy hour" menu (limited), but made up for the value; otherwise a bit pricy for what you get, but that's the nature of the "premium" location.

Did I say excellent service?! Yes it was.
Meals tasted great too. Very likely to repeat.

This is not a great place. Poor service mediocre food made this a place a forgettable dining experience. The waiter was nice but could not get the order right. We sent back 3 things we did not order. The rolls were small. Not a lot of fish. This isn't LA or NY. The supply of fresh fish in Tucson isn't that great. If your dying for sushi in Tucson don't think you'll get it here.
