This is a very unpretentious, small but really good Japanese and sushi restaurant. When you walk in and half the patrons are speaking Japanese here in Cary, they must be doing something right. The prices are right in line with most sushi places, maybe even a little bit less expensive - miso soup was 2$, agadashi tofu was 4 and... More

I visited Kashin today and was verrrry impressed. The atmosphere makes you feel like you've stepped into a little Japanese tea room. The food was very authentic and the service was superb. I had the Shoyu Ramen and was floored by the intense flavor. Definitely one of the best bowl of ramen I've had! Check out this hidden gem and... More

Here tucked away in a hard-to-locate/ out-of-sight position in a shopping complex, sits a credible version of a traditional Japanse 'restaurant'.... Wanting to be everything to all tastes in Nippon food styles dining option, it really didnt shine much at some if those options , based on our recent sampling. We wanted each a noodle & a rice fix respectively,... More

The food here was pretty good. The sushi rolls were great. The tempura however was slightly undercooked and very saturated with oil. I wouldn't recommend that. The entrees come with salads and soups. My party seemed to enjoy those.

Small Japanese restaurant in Crossroads shopping center. Had salmon and rice and it was very good. Service was fine and ambience was fine but this is a small restaurant without an attractive front but they do what they can do. Nothing special but worth a try.

We have definitely found the best sushi restaurant in Cary - if not the triangle. Comparable to any of the small sushi restaurants in and around Tokyo. The establishment if Japanese owned, the food is fresh and delicious, and the sushi chef is top-notch. The price is a bit higher than other sushi restaurants in the area, but the cost... More

I've been going here for 10 years. They have the most delectable, unique roles from any other place I have gone that serves real sushi. It was here that I first learned to eat true Sashimi, since their fish was so fresh. I also like the staff, the other options, like the squid salad and the softshell crab apetizer. The... More

The #1 place for sushi and Japanese fare for me in Cary. You don't need the soy sauce - just pick it up with your fingers and enjoy!

Came for a business dinner. The food was just ok. The service was slow.There was a huge draft coming from the wall behind us. Dinner took over THREE HOURS and food arrived at weird times. Like one dish came out... then a huge wait... then another which had been ordered at the same time as the first. Nothing particularly complicated... More
