Great place in downtown ATL

I ordered the sushi and a teriyaki rice bowl. The sushi was good but nothing to write home about. The bowl of rice was spicy and a really great value around $2!!

RuSan's was always a favorite neighborhood sushi place but it fell into desperately sad times and failed inspections. It's been bought out, remodeled and improving and the food is back up to its former glory! I waited to review after 2 visits and both times I was so pleased with the "new" "improved" RuSans! The food is great, the new... More

Went with Six workmates to this restaurant, spur of the moment decision, as we could not get into another restaurant. We have been there before, and knew that it was a good place to get a meal. When we went to the desk, the manager recognized us for trips we have been making to this establishment at least once a... More

I ate here a week or so ago. I used to eat here all the time but haven't been in ATL as much recently. I missed all the press around their "issue" and was worried when the crowd was thin. However, the new team seems to have corrected the deficiencies and the foot is good. Keep in mind this is... More

Once a year while in town we visit, we have not always been to the same location but the food has been excellent every time. I've tried a large variety of sushi here and have loved it all. I can't wait for the next visit.

Teriaki chicken for me and what a delight. Cooked to perfection and accompanied by white rice, sauteed onions and green peppers and garnished with string carrots. It also comes with soup and salad. I ordered the dinner that comes with 6 pieces of sushi. These were good but definitely the main course took the gold star. Very affordable. 2 dinners,... More

Ru San's in Midtown Atlanta has reopened under new management. I recently had a business lunch there and enjoyed the experience. The new management has retained the buffet that was a hallmark of the previous management. The interior decor reminds me of a South Beach or Los Angeles sushi bar with neon lights and stainless steel furniture. The staff greets... More

Ru San's is perhaps not for sushi afficionados, but, for those like me who enjoy sushi but don't make a fetish of it, it's a go-to restaurant. Consistently good selections, always fresh. Several (or many?) locations around the Atlanta metro area.

I really loved Ru San's but I feel like their menu is so overwhelming. I would rather them have fewer but good quality items. I also used to enjoy the lunch buffet here but its really busy and the sushi is low quality for the price. There are better places to get sushi in atlanta.
