By far one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had. We went on a Monday evening for the price fixe menu and had reservations. We were seated promptly and our waiter asked for our drink order. We weren't given a wine menu so he returned with one and it was about fifteen minutes later than he came back to take our order. We ordered drinks and dinner at the same time. Our appetizers came out promptly. Unfortunately it was another hour and ten minutes before our entrees arrived. Many tables around us that arrived after us received their meals first. I told the waiter that I realize this probably wasn't his fault but that I would like to speak to a manager. The portions were small, my order of scallops consisted of three. My husbands medium rare steak was very overcooked. He has never sent back a meal before, but did this time after the waiter told him to "cut into the middle, it might be medium rare there." I again asked to speak to the manager and was told that "some people don't understand that fine dining takes time." I said I would agree if the tables around us had not received their meals first. He said "different meals take different times." The table beside us had scallops as well and as I said previously, my husbands steak was overcooked. We asked for the check and our desserts to go. The manager never came over and we got tired of waiting for desserts and left. This was my fourth time dining here and it will be my last.Also, I posted this on their facebook page and they deleted it.

I visit Sushi Blues once every few weeks, and have not once been disappointed. They have a solid menu of sushi rolls and sashimi, which is nearly al…
So my wife and drive by this place all the time but never been, finally we decided to check it out. We went on a Saturday evening and ended up having like hour wait, but boy let me tell you, it was totally worth it! The staff was super friendly and helped out understanding the menu, and the food was unreal, so good!
The food is amazing no doubt, we've always loved their food, if you want to have authentic Japanese food, this is definitely the place to go. However, if you have a big party more than 6 people, I'll suggest you to go somewhere else. We had an weird almost unpleasant experience last week when we had 7 people party. First of all, the waitress messed up my order, the first mistake she made was she doesn't repeat everyone's order when we were placing order, and she insisted that I told her wrong order. Second, when we were checking out, she miscalculated one of our friends' changes, it was $10 different. Last which is also the most weird one, when she gave us bills, not only she just used post-it to write down each group's total amount without any listed item, but when we got our receipt back, she already hand written down every one's mandatory 18% gratitude, that made us feel really uncomfortable and disrespectful. It is a common sense that you should tip over 18% if you have a more than 6 people big party, she could have just address to us (even though we all already know this rule)but instead, she just wrote the tips by herself, especially we couldn't see the listed items on our receipt. I'll say the food is good but they need improve on their customer service.
One of my family's go-to dinner spots. Tokyo House has been around for nearly two decades now and the food and service has always been consistent. Definitely great for a relaxing and reliably satisfying meal. Their menu is pretty extensive and the kids love it too. Some of our favorites: hamachi kama, Godzilla Roll, Chicken Katsu, sushi and sashimi, fried banana dessert. The menu is not as authentic as Waraji but what you get is great value with their reasonable prices.
My favorite sushi restaurant in the Triangle area. The fish is always fresh, menu has something for everyone, service is just right, and the atmosphere suits many occasions (family dinner/group birthday/casual date night). I always order from the dinner set menu, which includes soup, salad, appetizer, tempura, sushi, and an entree (sashimi/steak/chicken). I dined in for lunch last month and discovered that they recently started serving ramen (which ended up being delicious). My only suggestion is that each dinner set should include a small dessert.
Have heard about this place for a while now but never gotten the chance to try it out. So I met a friend there this week and I was blown away by how good the food was. I am by no means a sushi expert, but I really enjoyed both of the rolls I ordered per waiters suggestion. The service was nice and not overwhelming and the wait time was minimal. The only complaint I have is that the actually pieces of sushi were huge and hard to chew as one bite (if that can even be considered a complaint). If you are looking for good sushi I recommend!
quality of food is terrible. over priced for lousy food. This place certainly doesn't pride them selves on quality. There are other places and believe me if you have had Japanese before this will disappoint you unless you haven't experienced good Japanese food then you wont be able to tell the difference.
Do NOT try TASU in Raleigh. I've been twice...first time was a real pleasure and we loved the place so my change of heart did not come lightly. The second time, I took my entire family visiting out of town and spent over $300 only to be squashed into a table that could not fit my party, have the manager disrespect us to our face, and have him physically handle my son...which obviously did not go over well. Even the second time, I did enjoy the quality of the food but our server and the overall customer service...or lack there of, was absurd for a party of that size spending that kind of money. And the part that puts this over the top is that I politely addressed the issues w/ the manager who was clearly way over his head and chose to be disrespectful instead of admitting their shortcomings and fixing it. Again, food was good, but we as paying customers deserve more respect than what this place provides. I highly recommend avoiding this place at all costs...even if it means buying your sushi from Harris Teeter!!!
