Foursquare Tips

  • Vietnamese Shaking Beef must have crack in it...
  • Order the cheeseburger
  • $5 lunch specials are unheard of... but what is that smell?
  • The fresh fish, easily viewed in the long glass case along the sushi bar, is bolstered by precisely cut strips of vegetables and enhanced with the expected sauces.
  • You can't leave here without trying the spicy edamame!!! Amazing!!!
  • Spicy edamame is one of the best things I've ever put in my pie hole
  • the fries are good
  • Get the spicy tuna bowl.
  • Not a hood place for football
  • Not impressed. Credit card machine down, out of squid salad, sushi wasn't very fresh and a little on the warm side. My tip: go to sushi 101 instead.
  • Starting off your meal with the crab wontons is a must. They've got awesome fresh flavor and the portion is generous.
  • Generously portioned mediocre Asian food. Good big shrimp shumai. Age dashi tofu tastes like cardboard. Sushi's heavy on rice & sauces. B+ customer service. It's popular but 1 visit's enough for me.
  • Snapdragon, crunchy roll, Caribbean roll, YUM!
  • Friendly staff, great sushi (always bogo), wasabi shumai and ginger salad... What more could anyone want?!
  • Great lo mein. Great sushi. Everything comes in huge servings!
  • Since every other tip has the BOGO covered, I'll mention they clearly heard the feedback on slow lunch service and raised the bar- outside seating was awesome and service was great!!
  • 2 for 1 sushi rolls.
  • B.O.G.O sushi is pretty good. Try the Shrimp Tempura Roll
  • The Dragon roll is brash and great with slashes of fire tempered by sweet eel and avocado while a sly hint of salty roe seduces the crispy soft shell crab on the Spider roll.
  • Tried nigiri here, sushi quality is ok. Subpar compared to other Charlotte sushi I give it a 2 out of 5.
