    The food and drinks were excellent. We really enjoyed the Japanese Margarita, and the large sushi selection. Our waiter was incredibly nice and attentive as well. We would highly recommend visiting here for any occasion, especially if you like Japanese/ Japanese fusion food.

    Not only was the presentation of the sushi beautiful but the food was wonderful. We ordered pork gyoza, miso soup, garden salad, and 3 rolls (dynamite, amazing and manhattan). Everything was delicious. Our server was so sweet and prompt. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    This is one of my favorite sushi spots in the triangle. Every time I visit it’s a great overall experience. However, this time it took 40 min after my reservation to be sat. I called on the phone 2 hours before my reservation to add on one more person to our birthday reservation for two for a booth and the hostess said they should be able to accommodate that. When we come in 5 min early for our reservation at 8:30 neither hostess greeted us for 5 min and then when we approach the host stand to check in, she said it’ll be 10-15 min which was fine. I work in the food service industry so I understand configuring the floor plan for a holiday and overlap. The whole point of reservations are to be seated more prior than walk in guests. It’s just I assumed we could accommodate an extra person with our request for a booth in my reservation I made two weeks prior on OpenTable, but when she called us to our table 15 min after check in we get a 2 top banquette. I had to give away that our surprise guest was coming to get the booth we request which was another 15-20 min wait. Other then the front desk issue, everything else was much more delightful. The service and the food were amazing as always.

    The table was not ready at the time of our reservation. We have to wait for another 10 minutes. The tables are very close with each other and are small. Although the food is good, I am not sure the overall environment can offer a good dining experience.

    Best sushi around! We chose the omakase and were not disappointed in any way. The fish is as fresh as fresh can be and we were told by the owner that they get fresh fish every week, three times a week. The service was also excellent!

    My wife and I went for New Year’s Eve. We were seated just ahead of our reservation time even though the place was packed, and several people were turned away (thanks Open Table)! The staff was polite and accommodating. The food was excellent. We had the scallop and the wonton appetizers which were awesome. We shared the Love Boat of sashimi and sushi. The fish was very fresh. Everything was presented beautifully. The place is small and LOUD, but it has a nice aesthetic look and feel. We will definitely be back!!

    Having tried Sushi Mon, we decided to try a little Japanese fusión sushi. The staff is wonderful, fish is fresh, and the presentation for items we ordered was fantastic. We had baby yellowtail, smoked salmon, red clam, oyster, toro, spicy salmon and tuna hand rolls, as well as many other yummy items. All the fish was fresh and the accompanying ingredients were fantastic. It gets crowded so unless you want to sit outside, I would recommend a reservation. Try the hot sake too, they place it in a warming pot to keep it warm. Yum!

    Best sushi I have had based on experience living on the west coast, east coast and gulf coast. Presentation was awesome and quality matched the presentation. Service was great!!! They are busy due to being so popular but again the quality is what you are there for to start. New favorite sushi place for my family and friends... almost forgot interior ambience was really cool with thoughtful decor and lighting. A++++

    We were in town visiting NCSU and tired out this place for Asian food. They were very busy but we were seated quickly. The food was excellent and the service was very good. We did have to wait a long time for our dishes. My food came out 15 minutes before the rest of the table which was hard with kids at the table waiting. Overall was great experience and will definitely be back.

    This used to be my favorite sushi restaurant in N.C. And to be fair, the food is still pretty good...although it’s a step below what it used to be. But the food in no way makes up for the horrendous service and poor ambience. When your server disappears for a half-hour at a time and you have to go hunting people down to figure out what happened to your order...I wouldn’t put up with that at an Applebee’s, much less a high-end sushi restaurant. As for ambience, apparently Friday night is kids night—I just didn’t get the memo. I’m sorry, but if I’m paying $200 for dinner, I really don’t want you bouncing your toddler on the back of my seat. It got so loud that my 15-year-old has to leave the restaurant and go for a walk. With how poor the service was, at least he wasn’t risking missing when the food showed up. In the window, there’s a “help wanted” sign. As long as that sign is in the window, stay away.
