RA Sushi

Not a trend, but an inventive concept, RA Sushi serves creative dishes and invigorating cocktails in a stylish setting.

Seductive splashes of red intertwine with dark woods and polished stone finishes. Popular, yet refined songs infuse a high-energy vibe into the mix. Trendy? Hip? For a moment you might forget that you just stepped off I-Drive’s busy tourist corridor and think that you have landed in one of the trendy restaurants found in a high end Vegas hotel.

Some may be intimidated by this first impression, but I found the restaurant to be anything but pretentious.  Ra is a comfortable place to meet with friends and family.  The upscale atmosphere is just the backdrop for the fresh and innovative dishes served by the friendly and knowledgeable staff. An added bonus is that the menu is very reasonably priced, with most items costing less than $15.

The most popular item on the menu, one listed in the ‘must have’ section, is the Viva Las Vegas Roll. Beautifully presented, the roll consists of kani kama crab and cream cheese rolled in rice and seaweed, then fried tempura style. A topping of spicy tuna, kani kama crab mix and sliced lotus root along with a sweet eel sauce and spinach tempura bits, finishes off this dish. Yum!  This delectable roll is even better when ordered from the Happy Hour Menu for $8.99.

This is just one of the 150 food items that is on the extensive menu. And RA doesn’t short-change you on the drink selections. The menu lists 120 libations – everything from beer and sake to specialty cocktails. There is even an nice wine list. The categories; Pop’n Bubbles, Sweet & Fruity, Tangy & Tart, Lush & Juicy might lead you to believe that wines aren’t taken seriously here, but the selections offered would satisfy even some of my wine aficionado friends.

In addition to the restaurant’s main dining area and sushi bar, RA also has a large full service bar open to both the indoor lounge and the covered outdoor patio area. On a convention or with a group? Be sure to ask about the semi-private dining room that can be reserved. Fully Audio/Visual equipped, the room is available for meetings and group dinners and can accommodate around 35 – 40 people.

Looking to give RA a try? Get Hooked Up! When you sign up on-line (or in the restaurant) you’ll receive a $20 RA gift certificate every year during the month of your Half Birthday. The gift card can be used Monday through Thursday at any RA location on regular priced food selections. In addition to the generous gift card, you’ll be the first to hear about food and drink specials, parties, events and all other happenings at RA.

RA Sushi at Pointe Orlando is the 26th location for this chain concept that has been in business since 1997, and is now owned by parent company Benihana Inc. With the Orlando opening of RA Sushi in the summer of 2014, Point Orlando is quickly becoming the go-to location for the busy Orange County Convention Center and the popular tourist district of International Drive.
The Pointe Orlando location of RA Sushi is open daily from 11am until 11pm. In addition to the main menu, there is a special Lunch Menu that is available from 11:00am until 3:00pm daily, which offers a nice selection of Bento Boxes, Bowls and Sushi combinations. Happy Hour, served throughout the entire restaurant, is available from 4:00 to 7:00pm Monday through Friday with a large selection of ‘Eats’ ranging from $3.49 to $8.99 and an even larger selection of ‘Drinks’ from $3.75 to $8.00.
The closest parking option to the restaurant is the Valet Parking which is just north of Pointe Plaza Avenue on International Drive. Be sure to bring your parking pass to the restaurant for validation (though you may want to call ahead to verify that this option has not changed.)
