Sushi Ken

The former proprietors of Tucson's Sushi Ten have opened a new eatery in Ahwatukee, and fans of authentic Japanese cuisine have been quick to pick up on it. The spare dining room's bright and open, with plenty of seating at the sushi bar and tables scattered throughout the room. As for the sushi, it's some of the best around — extremely fresh, and reasonably priced. Homey hot dishes, like the perfectly crisp pork katsu and the authentic chicken yakisoba, are tasty and filling. Even if you know nothing about Japanese food, it's easy to order here, thanks to eye-catching, photo-filled menus.
