Permanently closed. Not sure why. Received a phone call from their head sushi chef letting me know that they were permanently closing this wonderful place to eat.

Nice ambiance, great food! Best fried rice ever! Had the sweet and sour chicken and mongolian beef. Both were excellent. Would definitely visit again.

In the mood for sushi? Yes or No. In the mood for Thai? Yes or No. In the mood for Asian? Yes or No. And that's part of the beauty of Pacific Gardens -- you're not trapped into a single choice. They feature an awesome, wide variety fusion menu and even with the seemingly hundreds of times I've been there,... More

One of the best kept secrets in Ahwatukee Foothills until recently. Great menu of various excellent dishes! Great service and great prices too! Highly recommend for business and family dining.

I was in the area for the week and wanted really good Asian food. This place had it and more. Our table of four had the Philadelphia roll, chicken fried rice, walnut shrimp, almond chicken and Thai pad with beef & chicken. The food was very fresh and high quality. The prices were very reasonable. The service was professional and... More

This isn't the party-time, saki bomb type sushi joint. However, the fish is excellent and prices good. We will return for the simple fact that they introduced us to fresh wasabi. Finely chopped and allowed to marinate in its own potent juices, it was flavorful and hot. They also have some of their own rolls beyond the usual fare. Very... More

This is one of the least expensive sushi restaurants I've been to but honestly they have quality sushi. I've been here 6 times and never once had a problem or bad service. This place is usually empty and that's hard for me to understand. More people need to realize that they can't get great sushi for really cheap at a... More

This restaurant is close by my home, so I was hopeful that it would be at least good. Unfortunately, both the menu and the food were disappointing. The service was just average. I am not a big fan of Sushi and that is their primary offering. Maybe that's why their traditional food is so bland. In addition to the poor... More

This is the perfect concept for this area (Ahwatukee). There's a lot to gain as a Japanese restaurant. The atmosphere is perfect no matter what your mood is. The food may not earn a Michelin Star but overshadows the entire list of competition in the South Phoenix region of Ahwatukee. The only criticism I would give is in regards to... More

We got takeout there for a 2nd time. It was meh at best. We had some of the same things that we had the 1st time and they were uninspired. The items we were trying for the first time were less so. I would give this 2.5 stars if that were an option.
