I love coming here! The food is really light and delicious and doesn't weigh you down. The lunch menu is always a plus. I always get the 3 roll lunch combo and it never disappoints!

This place is a win. The interior looked new as well as the granite tables were new. On to the food....I had the hibachi steak and the veggies were perfectly cooked and my medium rare steak was cooked perfectly. My husband who loves sushi had the David roll, delicious! We will be regulars soon. Check the place out!

Wonderful family restaurant! The Three Roll plate and Sashimi Plate were works of art and very fresh! They made a Hibachi chicken salad for my husband. Great service and beautiful decor.

I live in the country, so I am not used to the traffic getting into this restaurant. The place is very nice, the chef paints and decorates the place and you can tell that he takes pride in his business. Very friendly and the sushi/sashimi is some of the best that I have ever had. Actually came back two nights... More

A friend who loves sushi as much as I do recommended this place. It is not in the very best part of town nor is it a fancy place; however what it lacks in decor it more than makes up for in food & service. Hubby and I went and had dinner tonight and man were we pleasantly surprised. I... More

This place is excellent! No wait, no attitude, just good eating. Everything is fresh and served at expected temp. Simple on the outside, pleasant on the inside. The servers(two young ladies) are so pleasant and have a "willing to serve" mood about them. I found the restaurant from reading a previous review and since then has eaten there twice in... More

Located right off Interstate 240, Ryu doesn't look like much on the outside. In fact, on a drive-by you might be tempted to keep on going. I did for about 4 years till I gave this place a try. What a mistake I made. No fancy digs here, but the sushi is some of the best in Memphis. I've eaten... More

Went to Ryu because of the excellent reviews on here, and I only ordered sushi so I cant comment on the Hibachi. Overall I thought it was average, although I did enjoy my rolls. I would give it a 3.5/5. I have eaten at all the other sushi joints in town as well, and I wouldnt put this on the... More
