They move the location to this new place right on the side of a very busy and noisy road. Love the food. Forget sitting on the patio. Way too noisy with cars driving by. Inside, its very dark. We've been to Ra sushi a few times in the previous location (Kierland). The food is as good as it was. In... More

This chain restaurant has some consistently good sushi and rolls - not the best but quite good. During busy times, some of the restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale can be very crowded and noisy. We found Ra to offer a comfortable setting with an acceptable noise level. Service was helpful and attentive. If it's sushi you want in Scottsdale then... More

One of the best shushing places around. I have also eaten at the Chicago location and it is equally as good.

They just moved to a new location, just minutes away by car from their previous locations at Kierland. The restaurant is great, the food is good and the service was very friendly exempt for the hostess who did not look very happy.

If you have any experience with good sushi, you don't want to go to Ra. They don't actually know what good sushi is, and unfortunately, it shows. Me, "can you make sure the chef puts wasabi on my sushi?" Waiter, "sure." Sushi shows up with no wasabi. Me to chef, "There's no wasabi on my sushi." Chef, "the owner doesn't... More

A complete disappointment after a long day of travelling. Very low standard sushi. Who cuts fresh raw tuna into cubes? Really? No marks for presentation. We've eaten better sushi at a fast food counter at the mall. Five stars for the great friendly service, the food gets a big fat zero....sorry!

Always surprised to find good seafood in Arizona. This sushi place is top notch. Very fresh fish beautifully prepared and presented. Love the decor and friendly and helpful staff...wish they has beer on tap but the happy hours from 5 to 7 made up for it. For the non sushi lover...they had a nice selection of cooked Japanese style dishes.... More

It’s more fun in the RA with lively music, a vibrant crowd, inventive cocktails and innovative Japanese fusion cuisine. Whatever you choose, it’s all served with a big side of Anything Can Happen. So bring your friends or make new ones. Either way, you’re in for a great time.
