  • Definitely get the Scary Jerry!
  • Largest sushi rolls ever
  • Ask for scary Jerry roll!
  • Sorry, buddy, but Haru is slightly better than dog food. Not even in the same class as Waraji. Stop embarrassing yourself by writing tips.
  • Order the dinner deal and share it by adding a few single sushi rolls... you'll save yourself some extra $$. The "meals" are expensive but it's A LOT of food!
  • No doubt - the best sushi I have had in a long time. I was there when Waraji opened and have been going ever since. It is the best place in the Triangle, or North Carolina for that fact!
  • Probably the highest quality fish I've ever had!
  • Scary Jerry & Spiral Ecstasy....Yum!
  • The best sushi in Raleigh!
  • Authentic Place
  • The Shamu roll is awesome! Everything here is sooo good.
  • Awesome Japanese meals and great sushi. A long trip for us (30+ minutes), but well worth it. One of our favorites.
  • The Suzuki 500 is Excellent! -Especially if you're wary of the uncooked items.
  • Scary Mary! And wasabi root.
  • Best sushi ever!
  • Reservations on weekend nights have to have 6 people minimum.
  • Spider ecstasy is excellent here says my Japanese mother in law. Elsewhere known as rainbow roll.
  • Chicken katsu was very authentic and with the right sauce, good sake menu, better than average draft beer selection (of Japanese beers)
  • Shamoo roll has a little bit of everything if you cant decide. Also ask for fresh cut wasabi is available if you like it hot.
  • The sushi!
