The minute that you walk in the door at Ru-San's, the staff's loud yelling and the fast techno beats make you feel kind of like a rock star. Although the restaurant's decor might not be as fancy as some places, the food here is hard to beat. The sushi list is three pages front-and-back, and there are always creative seasonal specials. For the Summer 2008 menu, the "Exotic Maki" with the tempura shrimp and mango salsa is one that you can't miss. Most of the other rolls are pretty spectacular too, including the Firecracker Roll with two kinds of tuna rolled in a crispy rice cracker crust served with some ultra-hot mayonnaise sauce and the Beetlejuice Roll, which is some kind of strange tempura tomato concoction with creamy shrimp salad. The wonderful thing about Ru-San's is that there are so many different things on the menu to discover. To make it easy for you, I'll go ahead and say that some of the best-kept secrets on their menu are the yakitori sea-bass and the zaru-soba noodles. And the mochi ice cream. And the ama-ebi nigiri pieces. Actually, this list might never end. But there's a start for you.

k.o. sushi has a great uptown location based on third and tryon in the 230 building. they offer a quick alternative to the hassle of dine-in sushi restaurants, via take-out or delivery. the quality is magnificent compared to other charlotte sushi bars, factoring in the idea of convenience, affordability,with no strings attached or waits in line. the service is all that could be asked for, as the employees are always cheerful and willing to make small chat while you wait for your meal.ona scale of one to ten i'd give k.o. sushi a ten based on the warm, comfortable vibe felt when i go there for lunch or when im just stopping by on my way to the parking decks on the way home from work. k.o. sushi is a blessing for my fellow colleagues visiting from other cities, while staying in many of the hotels in charlotte uptown. they deliver on time, with no hassle fancy protocol, or annoying delivery guys. the mood all around is mellow. while the service is remarkable. check them out on www.kosushi2go.com. you'll be impressed. without having to pay the standard sushi-crack prices.
I bought a Groupon for Edomae which stated "dine in or carry out." Groupon sent out an email later that said that "carry out" was a mistake but, since I already purchased the Groupon, I was still allowed to get carry out. When I went in to order I showed the manager the email from Groupon & he said it was still wrong because it was Groupon's fault and not theirs. In order to satisfy a customer (and potential returning customer) I feel that he should have taken it as the email said. Also, the only thing they would have missed out on was the tip for the waitress/waiter. Food price would not have changed, would have left a tip for the chef AND we had already told them we were going to have drinks from the bar while we waited. They were difficult and the place was completely empty anyways. Since I was unhappy with the service we left without any food so I have no idea how good the quality was (We went to get Sushi from our other local spot with great customer service and quality anyways).
K.O. sushi is wonderful! The quality is the best, the price is awsome, the timeing is always ontime to come and pick up an order, and when you do not feel like getting up from your chair the delievery is great to. They are a very fine resturaunt, and I wish them the best with everything they do. I do hope that one day they will consider having people to dine in. There is no other sushi in town that you can go and get great service and sushi more than just onece a week or every two weeks. You can go 1-3 times a weeek and not be broke.
One of the better buffets in Charlotte for an amazing price of $6.99 for lunch! This has been my second time there and the food remained hot and fresh just as it did my first time around. There are some signature chicken dishes here that I've not had anywhere else and they are pretty dank and the Mongolian sauce used for the Hibachi grill is amazing! I too sympathize for the person in the first review because well...they went to lunch at 3:45pm! Best time to get fresh buffet food would be between 11am-1pm. Cheers!
When I entered the restaurant I was promptly greeted and I went to place my Sushi to go order the manager was very friendly and helpful offering me a beverage while I waited the manager also made me aware of the specials offered on a weekly basis Sushi was prepared quickly Sushi was very good!!! tempura roll very good! I will come back for sure!
This was such a delicious experience! I hesitantly ordered the hunka hunka and it was amazing. My kids loved the bento boxes and I loved the fresh fruit side options. Definitely would head here again, and judging by how quickly the restaurant filled up I think we'll always aim to get there right at opening!
The place is great. We have been several times and the food was great, the buffet food is kept hot and fresh, and also love the hibachi station. I am not into sushi, but my son is and he says theirs is great also. I hate that the other reviewer had a bad experience. I guess they went there on a bad day :(
First time here. Really super great, fresh food. Had the hibachi, However, I have yet to try the sushi but overall atmosphere, curtious waitstaff and great food....I will forsure be back!! Presentation was prepared beautifully. Big portions!!! Yum yum!
A group of us went here for a work function one day. We went for lunch. Food was good and the chef gave you plenty of it. The lunch price was under $10 for what most of us got (the chicken). I would NOT go here for dinner. Too expensive.
