They could step it up a bit – Well, the sushi is OK... Not great. The service really needs some improvement. They need to keep their patio's cleaner. The atmosphere is pretty good. Over all, there are way better sushi places in Scottsdale. Oh yeah, and create a kids menu please. We have two little ones and they love hip places too.
Great Sushi – The Philadelphia roll at RA is absolutely superb. I believe that anyone who loves sushi should definitely go to RA just for this one roll. They have some of the best salmon I've ever found in Arizona and the chef that prepared it made it brilliantly. RA has a very nice atmosphere and the service is fantastic, but that isn't the reason to go. People need to go so they can experience brilliant sushi.
They use the freshest ingredients at RA which is what makes the rolls so good. It's almost impossible to find good fish in the Phoenix area, but they somehow managed to find the best that I've had. The cream cheese has the perfect amount of sweetness and the cucumber is crisp. When all these items are combined by the chef it turns into a wonderful treat.
The chef is a master of rolling sushi and seasons the meat perfectly. If you're going to get this roll don't dip it in soy sauce or wasabi, don't ruin the subtle flavors of this spectacular roll. It needs to be eaten on its own so you can experience the freshness of the fish.
The greatest thing about this roll is that it isn't too expensive, if you go during happy hour it's only about five dollars a roll and that's incredibly cheap for something of this quality. If you go to RA and order a Philadelphia roll I can guarantee you will have an amazing dining experience.
My favorite sushi joint – Been to RA in Tucson and the Ray Rd. Phx location a LOT over the past 6 years. Not much has changed -- they always have plenty of giant bottles of Asahi / sake bombers, the music is always thumping and there are always plenty of people to look at, much more so in Phx than in Tuc. Great sushi never dissapoints. Even friends in the 21-40 age bracket who don't eat sushi like the place for the booze and the scene. Try it out.
Good Place – Great Sushi. Always feel you are getting the best ingredients.
The food was better than average. Service was good. Would go back.
Delicious drinks – This is the hippest sushi place i've been to and i'm going to have to give them 5 stars despite the sometimes slow service. It's a really chill and freidnly atmosphere and everyone just gets loose. Their sushi is superb and they just revamped their drink menu, the strawberry soju sunrise is my favorite. Best combo of food, drinks, and atmosphere for miles...
