“Great Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We did take out from here and tried 5 sushi rolls. All of them were great. The presentation was beautiful, the sushi tasted not only delicious but fresh, and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely return here!

“Best Sushi in Town. Absolutely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This place is SOOO good. If you are a sushi lover hoping to persuade a reluctant diner to try this fare then you can't visit too soon. This is the best sushi in Charlotte. Not the fanciest location and not a place to post about on your Facebook page, but if you are looking for good, fresh, high quality sushi, this is your place.

“If you're looking for great sushi, try New Zealand Cafe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The only complaint I have about this restaurant is that it is small and only seats about 20 - 25 people. It's usually packed because the food is so good, especially the sushi. They have a great variety of sushi choices, and great presentation of the food as well. The service is so good it's almost overbearing, probably due to the close quarters. The food/sushi is reasonably priced and it's one of my family's favorites, especially my sushi-eating 16 year old daughter.

“Too many deep fried rolls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

Sushi should be raw fish...deep fried rolls only hide the lack of quality and freshness of fish. This place seems to rely on the deep fryer too much.

“The presentation of the Sushi is GREAT...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

And it doesn't stop there. It is so FRESH and taste amazing. I have tried almost everything on the menu and it is all tasty. My favorites are the Dragon Roll, Rainbow Roll and the wasabi salmon roll. The staff is friendly and always recognizes us from previous visits. The restaurant is a hole in the wall but well worth the visit!!!
