    Our first in-restaurant dining since the pandemic. The food is as delicious as we remembered! We did take out during the pandemic but the in-restaurant experience is so wonderful. Service is very good and we were happy to be back!

    M Sushi is the standard bearer in the Triangle. Consistent and delicious! Prices are high (wagu beef mini-hot top =$60), but for a special occasion, well worth the money. We would go more often if prices were more in line with other Japanese restaurants, but M Sushi is a tough reservation to get, so I guess supply and demand wins again!

    The sushi is very fresh and nicely made. The smoked miso cod starter is tasty, but pricey for the amount served. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Finally, there are many gluten free options and when I noted on the reservation we had a GF person in our party the server was aware and brought tamari first thing.

    We loved each single time. The sushis are always with the highest quality of fish, they are consistent on the quality, they are the best Sushi I had outside of Japan. We love the real wasabi that it’s hard to find at other sushi restaurants, I find only 5 restaurants who offer the real fresh wasabi, and that make a big difference too. M Sushi is the best Sushi place from the opening and still are the best. Thank you for our wonderful dinner!

    As before, the food was amazing in quality, preparation, and presentation. The lunch menu is quite different from the dinner menu. So if you want an omakase, book your table for dinner. Our server was able to answer our questions and provide an alternative for something my new diest doesn't allow. The service was very good, except that our server kept reaching to remove dishes without asking. We take our time and may not want every dish whisked away as soon as it starts looking empty. Also, we don't like to be rushed.

    We've been talking about M Sushi for ages and finally made it for a birthday/valentine's day dinner. It was worth the wait! So delicious. Highly recommend the tuna and rice small plate, and the Futomaki roll. The Yuzo Semifreddo for dessert is also amazing!

    Had been wanting to go here for a while and finally had the chance. Food was absolutely delicious. We loved the nigiri sampler platter — especially the bluefin tuna, tuna belly, and fatty salmon — the eel and avocado roll, the spider roll, and the house special roll. Our server Kim was attentive and helpful, and recommended a delicious dessert. Will hopefully return soon!

    We treated ourselves to the grand Omakase - everything served was incredibly special in it's preparation and creativity, and delicious. And the presentation of each course made it even more so. Service was outstanding, with the obvious goal being to provide us with a delightful experience in every way possible. Thanks to the team at M Sushi who made our night truly wonderful!

    The best sushi we've had in NC. Our daughter visiting from Los Angeles put the quality on par with Matsuhisa & Morimoto. I agree! Served in a snug space with lovely brick walls & open wood ceiling (original to the building) - we feel it's great for date night (moody lighting, large bar) but also for business meeting or special family dinner (our case). The plating is close to perfection in beautiful Japanese pottery. It's a bit difficult to find as there's no signage at either end of the alley they're down so follow your map app to a tasty dinner.
