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

I come from Sydney Australia. I have been in town for the last 2 weeks for a work convention.

My friend who lives in Raleigh doesnt normally... More

Each time I go to Musashi, I am reminded of my time in Japan. The daily lunch specials offer a great deal of variety and value. Most of the clientele are Japanese. Highly recommended!!

Having spent time in Tokyo I can say that this is the best authenticate Japanese in charlotte. If your looking for teppanyaki style, benihana food go elsewhere this is not that kind of food
