    Nirvana means a dry martini, a comfortable patio with full bar service, and the coolest people, and a nonstop parade of delicious sushi dishes to fill us up. Read more

    RA has REALLY good Spicy Tuna Rolls. This is a cool little non -awkward date spot. It's a good little place to come to before you go to the bars on Mill or if you are just having a girls night out.

    They have the best hour! My favorite thing about FourSquare and Ra too is you get a complimentary Edamame or Miso Soup when you check in. Try their wasabi mash potatoes too!

    What other restaurant do you know that has a live Dj that plays all of the jams? RA has a happy hour and a reverse happy hour too. Who needs a club when you have good food and good music at RA???

    Has one of the best happy hours! Especially since they offer normal hours as well as reverse! Much more convenient for someone on a college (late night) schedule!

    RA Happy Hour is great. 3-7 Monday-Saturday. Good deals on sushi, appetizers, beer, and sake. Great place to start your night on Mill with quality food and drinks.

    Go during the lunch hour-- the bento box lunch specials are awesome and not too expensive! Plus it's a lot less crowded, and you get a lunch punch card. :)

    Go to RA during the happy hour (3-7). Get the Blushing Geisha. It's one of the best drinks I've ever had. You can't beat the happy hour price either!

    There is a complimentary edamame or Miso Soup when you check in here! Also don't sit outside, it usually takes longer to get waited on.

    This place is by far the best place to eat sushi. Happy Hour is from 2-7pm daily and you can get sushi rolls for as low as $6.

    Surprisingly good. Like the Vegas roll. Crazy Monkey is good if you like cream cheese. Spicy tuna crunch was good also.

    Happy Hour ends at 11:00pm so 10:30pm aim for the half off Viva Las Vegas Roll, the best ever!

    There are enough appetizer options and veggie roll options here to get away with a reasonably substantial vegan lunch.

    Reverse happy hour every Sunday 8-11 P.M. You get a $20.00 credit for your half birthday. The food is mediocre and a bit pricey in my opinion. Come here for lunch.

    If you get the Gojira Roll, make sure to use the sriracha and miso mayo, it's spread out on the plate.

    Crazy Monkey roll is really good. It's the closest thing to the New Zealand roll which they unfortunately took off the menu.

    Beef Tataki is pretty good. It's nice to find a sushi place that serves sushi that doesn't have shell fish in it. I'm allergic.
