The owner of the restaurant and the chefs are Japanese and many patrons are also Japanese, which tells you how authentic this place is. Sushi is good and they sometimes have the fish not on menu, so ask the chef what he has. Non-sushi dish are also great; many are more of the mom's cooking (in Japan). They also have... More

First of all to all the "food was too bland" morons leaving comments about Musashi do me a favor. NEVER GO TO JAPAN, EVER. If you have a clue about Japanese food (and from what I've read I can see you dont) you would know its about the subtle flavors of the dish. The freshness of the fish, the quality... More

The food was similar to average Chinese food in my opinion. My husband had sushi and didn't finish, I had chicken and was ok. We won't return.

I love sushi. LOVE it. Since moving to Charlotte, I've tried every sushi restaurant that had good ratings on various sites and by word of mouth. I thought, before going to Musashi, that the best sushi to be had in the area was at New Zealand Cafe. Although very good, Musashi has that place beat hands down. The fish at... More

At least once a year I spend a week in Charlotte for business and Musashi is always on my MUST GO list: it's hard to find a place with such a great food quality!! I can not go back to Italy without having eaten their baby crabs!

this is a tucked away, family restaurant where you stand a good chance of being a minority if you are non-Asian! :) Just order the special of the day and you won't be disappointed. This is not Americanized Japanese food, but authentic, fresh with wonderful sushi...very, very good.

I can’t believe the comments from some people but I guess there’s always a grumpy person visiting places at the wrong time to spoil others visit. My wife and I are Musashi regulars and I personally been visiting the restaurant since 2000 and the food has always been consistently great. We are treated like family by Mishiko and Munta and...

Very simple "mom and pop" kind of restaurant with very authentic Japanese food. Nothing flashy or novel - just consistently excellent traditional Japanese food. Whenever I visit, it's mostly Asian customers (this is an uncommon sight in Charlotte, NC) - what more can I say?

The atmosphere is friendly and makes you think of Japan. Each time we went, we were greeted in a friendly way and told to sit anywhere. We have had the gyoza, tonkatsu ramen, and the tonkatsu bento box. Everything was better than expected - so fresh and tender! The miso soup is perfect. I can't wait to go back and... More

After all the great reviews of this restaurant I had to check twice if it was the same one I visited. I went for a quick meal after work one evening and ordered a vegetable meal with some tuna sushi. The vegetables were fried in a batter. I needed a whole lot of full-flavor soy sauce just to give it... More
