Ru Sans at Edgewood is in a convenient location if you live on the Eastside. I would give the food a B+. I often dine there for their lunch buffet. For $12 bucks, they have a full spread of their most popular sushi, tempura veggies, fried calamari(My fav!!), teriyaki chicken and miso soup. It's never overcrowded which makes for a quick drive by on my lunch break!
My family and I love Ru sans. It is one of our favorite restaurants! Love their chicken, shrimp and beef fried rice.
Hit or miss, but when they are on...they are on! The lunch buffet is always a crowd pleaser and the staff is fun and engaging.
Out of all the Ru San's locations, this is the worst one. The 81 rating at the door should have stopped us from going in and spending almost $100 on a terrible dinner.
Our waiter (poor thing) was trying his best to keep up with his many tables so either it was scheduled poorly or people called in sick and left this guy alone on a Saturday night. What is maddening is that the greeter/floor manager should be able to help him out by delivering his food when it comes up. Our sushi was warm and our tempura was cold. Plus, my husband found 2x hairs in two separate dishes. Again, an 81 rating should disparage anyone from entering the place until they get their s*@& together.
The overall feel of the restaurant is DIRTY. I know it gets busy but I'm really shocked by how dirty the whole place was. We normally sit at the bar so maybe it's always this dirty and we never notice.
Anyway, I know it's cheap sushi and all but there should be some sort of level it needs to rise to. Raw fish is nothing to mess around with and they should be really careful they don't make their patrons sick by the warm, raw fish they serve. Needless to say, my husband was sick the rest of the night.
Long story short, the Kroger store in the same complex has better, fresher sushi that you won't have to wait for. Grab a package and 6x pack of beer and get home. You will save yourself the misery of food poisoning and be in the comfort of your own home.

where to start? the food tasted really bad - the soup was sweet (whoever heard of sweet miso soup?) the noodles were still crunchy, and the sushi just looked sad. i know it's cheap, but if cheap = bad tasting, i would rather invest my money someplace else.

I met my younger brother for lunch last Friday and he was excited to try the RuSan's off of Moreland Ave. I'd been there once before and ordered the $1.00 sushi and another cheap roll. I got what I paid for. This time I decided to invest a little more money in my lunch to see if it worked out.
This RuSans has a lunch buffet. The hot foods, like fried rice are kept on the buffet and I don't remember if they were being kept hot. All I remember is the sushi sitting on a buffet table that did have any sort of cooling apparatus. It was just sushi, warming to room tempature, in little plates. We both decided to pass on something with such a disturbing potential to cause food poisoning and went for the menu.
I ordered shrimp and veggie tempura, it came with Miso soup (which is what I was looking most forward to) and a salad. The salad was overwhelmed with dressing. The soup was bland and oily. It didn't have tofu, or seaweed. Which I know aren't mandatory, but why not go with the tried and true? It did have scallions. It also had noodles. The noodles made the broth slightly less bland, but only to get it an unpleasant starchy flavor. Blech.
The tempura shrimp and veggies were okay. A little oily on the batter, but *shrug* still okay.
My little brother enjoyed his dollar sushi. It was the most unappetizing sushi I'd ever seen in my life, even less appetizing than the lukewarm sushi on the table in the center of the room.
Rusans is definitely for those hurting for cash and jonesing for sushi.

The restaurant from the outside appears nice. Although once inside the experience was awful. The waiter explained the item completely wrong twice. After we received the order, it was not what the waiter explained. We spoke with management who basically told us that the waiter was new and did not really understand the menu yet. She was very unsympathetic and rude. We ended up leaving immediately.
Do not go to this place.

RuSan?s is a great sushi restaurant, where the atmosphere is entertaining, the service is prompt and the food is good. I?ve been to all their locations in the Atlanta and this one is my favorite by far. It?s located just off Moreland Avenue, in the Edgewood Shopping Plaza, just off I-20. You?ll find the establishment on the second floor, just above Caribu Coffee. Rusan?s also has outdoor seating, if you prefer to people watch.
You are usually greeted immediately for seating, many times by the Manager, and the chefs usually yell a greeting as well. There are about 12 booths and the place can hold about 75 patrons. Japanese art adorns the walls, some of which were donned by RuSan himself. The music is upbeat playing top 100 hits, Japanese style. The menu has a wide variety of inventive and delicious choices and also has an extensive $1.00 menu. There is a Lunch Buffet everyday for $8.00. Of course there?s the sushi bar, where you can sit up close and be entertained by RuSan?s chefs, where this always lively group of guys have fun while making their delicatable creations. They always remember to shout a hearty ""Aligato"" (thank you) as you are leaving the restaurant. You won't ever have a long wait for your food and they can accomodate large groups of about 15 if you give them advance notice. The food is good and is always presented beautifully. I have sampled most of the items on their menu, as I am a frequent visitor there, since I can go there for under $10.00 and still be more than satisfied.

This place is NASTY!!! I ordered an udon noodle dish and while I was getting ready to enjoy it, I bit into a tiny piece of METAL!!! I immediately spat it out only to find it it was one of those metal scrapers used for dishwashing. How unsanitary can a restaurant get if its customer find dishwashing equipment in their food??? Disgusting! After notifying them about the incident, they didn't even offer a discount or anything, just a simple 'sorry'. Well, I am sorry to let you know that I will NEVER SET FOOT in this restaurant again. That could have ended hazardly if I swallowed the metal piece. Why are dishwashing equipments near the cooking section in the first place. As for the food, it is not even good. The noodle dish was extremely sweet that I could not finish it. I paid $10 for a grossly made dish....a waste of time and money. My advise to you restaraunt goers: RuSan's IS NOT WORTH YOUR TIME AND MONEY. THE FOOD IS DISGUSTING!

I work off Windy Hill so I was introduced to Rusan's by a few co-workers one day during lunch. I enjoyed the buffet because it provided me with variety that most sushi restaurants do not offer. For food that's fresh, relatively inexpensive, with a decent variety and quick, RuSan's is the ticket. Since I live east of the city it's not plausible that I'll travel all the way downtown to eat sushi...and definitely not up 75. On the weekends, I stay put. So when the new RuSan's opened near Little Five, I was elated!!!!
