This is the best quality sushi in the city of Charlotte regardless of price. It is also one of the least expensive. It's tucked away in an odd strip mall and doesn't impress at first sight. The inside is clean and nicely appointed and the...More

I must say, I'm SCARED of Charlotte sushi places due to the inconsistency of sushi-grade raw fish. Having a terrible experience from illness, I avoided sushi restaurants at all cost until one of my clients decided to meet me at this place for a one-on-one....More
