Before I start with my review, let me provide you with some background on my previous sushi experience! My wife and I both lived in Japan for 6 years until 2011 when we moved to the US, and while there we ate sushi and sashimi at least once a week, and have had the freshest sushi from some of the best restaurants in Tokyo.
Thus far my time in the US (living in New York) has been a bit of a let down on the sushi front after our time in Japan, so when some trusted friends said we had to try Roppongi Sushi while we were visiting Huntersville, I was a little apprehensive. A quick check on Tripadvisor was encouraging, as a few others appeared to be saying the same thing.
All I can say is that to date, Roppongi Sushi offered up the best rolls, sashimi and sushi I have had outside of Japan. The fish was firm, flavorful and fresh, the rice was actually proper Japanese (or Perl) rice (the backbone of all good sushi), and the creativity of the menu for the rolls was excellent. The staff friendly, courteous and attentive, and the restaurant decor a mixed Asian / American fusion style with individual booths for intimacy, and an open area with bar seating if you want to watch the sushi chef at work!
Overall an exceptional experience, and all for a very reasonable price. Well worth a visit - you won't be disappointed!
