Japanese restaurants in Tucson
- Sort by:
Usually packed to the gills, this Japanese restaurant will satisfy purists with its fresh eel and tuna, the squeamish with its baked California roll, and meat-eaters with its teppan (fun tableside chopping and pyrotechnics). The Sakura Boat featuring 32 pieces is great for sharing and there’s even a ‘Karate Kids’ menu for pint-sized Samurai.
Billing itself as a healthy Japanese eatery, Yoshimatsu uses mostly organic foods, eschews MSG and offers lots of vegetarian and vegan options. Order a bento box, steamy soup or rice bowl at the counter and eat in the woodsy front tavern, or get table service at the separate and more intimate sushi cafe in back.
