Reviews for Arai Pastry

The food is great, I love the stuffed bread and they have a iced green tea drink smoothie better than Starbucks, but I docked one star because they are the only business in Tempe (that I have seen in the last 4 months) that is requiring a mask even if you have been fully vaccinated.Relax guys it's not that bad.

Absolutely worth the stop. The shopping center is easy to pass, not a fancy entry way easy to completely miss this place, which shows you this place is absolutely worth it. The draw is locals who frequent this shop. Family owned authentic Japanese bakery, and you cannot go wrong with anything you choose. Had to try the strawberry pie simply because it was the most reviewed dish, and it absolutely did not disappoint. The flan was also delicious, worth the trip!

I like Japanese bakeries and was glad to find this place right next to Fujiya Market. When I entered the place, I was somewhat surprised to see the selection of the bakery items. They seem to be somewhat limited. It looked like they were preparing to bring more items. So it might be just a timing issue. I got my curry pan. It's typically deep fried but this was more a baked curry pan. It's probably healthier to bake than deep fry. Tasted good and I liked the curry filling.
