    The food was great! Our server was not. I know it was busy but the way he was taking orders was weird. We had a group of 14 and he only asked the first 4 people for their order and went to the back. Then he came back and took another groups order and kept doing it that way.

    Unfortunately it took us an hour and a half to get our food. The food was good, but we saw people come in after us and get their food and leave before we got ours.

    Food was just ok. Go for the sushi and nothing else. Sent ramen back due to not being as described on menu and my replacement entree wasn’t much better in terms of looks and taste. An overload of onions in everything with soy sauce in dishes or just sauce dumped on minimally cocked food. Sushi is good but wouldn’t say best in charlotte.

    We ordered an assortment of rolls, Nigiri, sashimi, and tartare. Everything was fresh and delicious. We’ve been looking for a good reasonably priced sushi restaurant for a while and I think we’ve found the one!! Will definitely be back’

    Everything was absolutely wonderful. The ONLY issue we had was the order in which our food arrived. One couples meal was served, then the appetizer for the table arrived several minutes later, then the second couples dinner came out even later when the first couple had finished theirs. Other than that, the food was delicious! Oishi!

    Just because you’re are busy you can’t neglect customers and be rude to them! Its not a charity soup kitchen that we should be grateful we are getting free food. First they brought us saki with no cups until it was cold and then when I asked for cups the waitress was so rude , she brought glasses I asked for saki to be replaced it was cold by then, they ended up charging me twice. We were a party of 4 one person got their order the rest of us waited an hour and they kept coming to the table with wrong orders or someone’s else’s order we don’t know! Non of the staff speaks English they all speak spanish so if you can’t speak Spanish you should no go to that Asian restaurant lol Its was a sh it show and never going there again

    Eat here a lot, it has good food and has always been a good place for fast accommodations when we have large parties. The staff on this visit was not the typical nice and friendly. Be aware that the menu on open table is not the same as the one you get in the restaurant, the prices aren’t the same!!!! Found out the hard way!!!

    Went for my daughter's 13th birthday. She wanted to go uptown but as we had a limousine and I paid by the hour, I did not want to have a wait. Unfortunately, I did not know of any great sushi restaurants to take a limo to in uptown that uses open table so ru-sans won due to its proximity uptown. I've had a great experience with them in the past so it was nice to return. However, we were seeking a more upscale ambiance
