    We went from my friends birthday. The service was horrible. I don’t know if the waitress was having a bad night, but she made us feel that it was an inconvenience for us to be dining there. Anything we asked for like lemons, for example “ well I have to get them from a bar so it’s gonna take a while.” we moved the heater because we are burning up and she said “I cannot do service like this.” Instead of politely, saying that she need more space to service us. There was 20% gratuity added because we were a party of 7 and she definitely did not deserve 20%.

    3 appetizers (2 of the same) were brought 15-20 mins apart. Sushi took over an hour to arrive, after 20 minutes of our sushi arriving, main entree never arrived, decided to cancel. Over 10 minutes for drinks. Server somewhat acknowledged the delays but never any management to come make things right. Spent over 2 hours for a dinner that we should have been in and out for.

    This is simply not authentic sushi in a less than pleasant environment. Perhaps appropriate for the college crowd- I may have found it acceptable during my college days.

    Unfortunately, Obon is not what it used to be. The menu is much more commercial and limited, and just not as good. They forgot one of the items we ordered, and so we waited for 25 mins on Tuna. I will give them credit on not seating people/open tables because they have limited staff to appropriately service. Obon used to be a place we really looked forward to, but will probably skip in from now on.

    What a let down. Their website menu is extremely different from the menu we got. The value was terrible, we left still hungry after an $85 meal. I am not usually one to complain about prices, because usually it's well worth the experience and food! Unfortunately that doesn't apply here. Our server was kind! But a small bowl of curry and astonishingly small sushi rolls left my partner & I extremely disappointed. We will not be back.

    Reservation at 6pm we were seated promptly, but waited almost 15 minutes for a sushi menu , apparently they needed to print out more I know this because I watched them do it , then after placing our order it was 7:05 when our meals finally arrived , my wife’s ramen bowl was cold and my sushi was average at best ! Shouldn’t have to wait an hour from the time we were seated to eat! PS our server was very very kind and apologetic. Very disappointed, I hope this was a one time bad night for you all

    Sushi is a type of fast food in which many plates are expected to be ordered during your dining experience. We waited 55 minutes for an order of sushi to arrive at our table. Waiting that long for something that should take minutes to prepare, not only kills the dining experience, but is antithetical to going out for sushi in the first place. Having to order small plates all up front with the expectation to wait up to an hour for any additional plates you want to order is an atrociously bogus business model. I have fond memories of this restaurant before the pandemic. It was posh with sexy lighting, had an inventive drink menu, a great wait staff, and was a fantastic dining experience. Our recent experience found us sitting at an uncomfortable table in a brightly lit, loud, and dirty restaurant. The wait staff was indifferent and careless. The drinks were so-so (please don’t put sesame seeds in my cocktail). Despite waiting over an hour for our food, the presentation and food was good. If you want an apathetic, expensive, and unsentimental dining experience in an uninspiring undergrad environment, than this is your place. Otherwise, try somewhere else that understands what Japanese culture, dining and sushi is.

    Over all a good meal, Ramen was a little too salty. Sushi was good, but pricey. Paying for a downtown location and scene I guess it's to be expected. Paid $129.00 plus tip for three with 1 Ramen, 2 rolls, 9 x 2 piece Niguiri, 1 App, 1 Beer, 2 Sodas. I would consider going here again for a special occasion as this was, but would stick to other Tucson Sushi places for a regular sushi meal out.

    Service was so bad we walked out. We have never been treated so poorly. Seeing the server at every other table but ours. Food took over an hour. Getting our drinks refilled was impossible. And getting a spoon to actually eat what I ordered guess I should have brought my own, asked three times never got one.

    Dirty tables, as in thick black crud between the slats. Salty, luke warm miso soup. They didn't have our reservation and made us wait 45 minutes. Sushi was good. Waitress was good, but both hostesses lacked common sense.
