City Center is an area that has a variety of things to do from shopping, dining, getting fit and enjoying a movie. One of their trendy restaurants is RA sushi, which opened in 2009 in this location, at 12860 Queensbury between I-10 and the Beltway 8. Once in the center you cannot miss the Red sign with the name of the restaurant, however once getting to the restaurant may be tricky, since it is located on a second floor, there are flights of stairs to get to the place.
The venue is not extremely big, they have a few tables but more bar tables which are at the beginning of the restaurant. The décor is simple and the restaurant has dark lights that give a nice ambiance.
If you arrive with a small group of two or four then the tall bar tables are the best because the wait is also less, otherwise a table is the way to go.
For starters you can order the salmon wontons which are lightly fried wontons filled with salmon, spinach and seasoned cream cheese served with a spicy mustard sauce for $6.75, or the tuna tataki which is thinly sliced ahi tuna seared and served over shredded daikon radish for $10.75, or even the lobster spring rolls which is lobster mixed with garlic mango sauce, cream cheese and mild peppers wrapped in a lightly fried wonton for $9.75, or even the spinach gyoza for $5.25.
But of course you will have to taste one of their signature sushi rolls such as the Viva Las Vegas (this is a definitely crowd pleaser) which is imitation crab and cream cheese rolled in rich and seaweed, lightly tempura battered and topped with spicy tuna, lotus root, and with eel sauce and spinach tempura flakes for $11.75, or the crazy monkey which is smoked salmon, mango and cream cheese topped with avocado, red tempura bits, cashew nuts and drizzled with a mango sauce for $8.25 or the Pacific Roll which is spicy albacore, cilantro, jalapeno and cucumber rolled and topped with fresh avocado and mango salsa finished with red beef tempura flakes and sautéed pine and cashew nuts for $8.75.
But you can always get the sushi pieces as well on their own and you can write them down on the sushi sheet like tuna, eel, shrimp, or yellowtail for the waiter or the sushi chef if seated at the bar directly.
