    All you can eat sushi buffet for $11.75, you can't lose. They also have other items, but lots of sushi to choose from. Only down side is they don't label the sushi, so you have to be a bit adventurous

    During lunch get a table near the back by the window. You can see when they bring out the fresh new sushi rolls for the buffet. Don't eat too much the 1st round because they bring out different rolls!

    Ru San's is my fave sushi place in the hood. Hawaiian Ahi Poki or California Sunset = delice! The sushi chef is amazing and the staff is friendly with the exception of Grace. Overall, LOVE this place!

    Some of the best sushi in Charlotte! All sushi rolls are amazing and reasonably priced...Usually have great draft beer selections and half-priced bottles of wine on Wednesdays!

    Love the atmosphere and the sushi chefs, they make you feel good by giving you a hearty welcome when you come in. Almost like an Asian diner...they have a little bit of everything!

    Everything. This place has the best sushi/Japanese cuisine in the area. The service is never bad, even when they are super busy. Try a Saketini too, unless you don't drink ;)

    Grace is actually the best server at Ru San's... Only bitter and mean people write untrue things about people in public places. If you have Grace as your server it will be the best meal you ever had!

    Katherine Misle · January 6, 2012
  • Alison A.

    Tuna sashimi was delicious! Also loved the new moon maki and the exotic maki. Our server was fabulous as well! I would definitely come back if I'm in the area

    Sit on the patio while it's still nice out and kill the lunch buffet. Remember to not show up from 2:30-4:30 Monday-Saturday...they're closed. Tempura mozz roll rules.

    Decent (some great) sushi, very low price! Some 3 piece rolls and other foods are $1, which means you can create a great meal full of variety! Read more

    Check out their all you can eat lunch - they seem to turn over the sushi pretty fast so it stays fresh, but it gets very busy.

    Ru San's is amazingly cheap great sushi. Try anything off the veggie menu, it won't disappoint. Beware of the lunch rush, though.

    sarah dickinson · November 16, 2010
  • Sarah W.

    Super cheap, fast, delicious. Careful, though - make sure whatever you order is over $5 if you plan on using card instead of cash.

    Sarah Wilbanks · October 26, 2011

    Sushi in a strip mall sounds like a bad idea but it was amazing! Cheap and delicious. Huge menu with lots of options.

    Tiffany Porter · October 1, 2014
  • Mike H.

    Sushi is the best. Be prepared to come a little early. The wait list can be crazy and the lobby is non existent

    Mike Hege · January 4
  • Sara J.

    So far everything. I always have to choose between ordering as I wish from the individual orders or getting a meal B-)

    Sara Jean · December 27, 2014
  • Jake M.

    Great food and atmosphere, but can get crowded and loud! Definitely plan on an early dinner to avoid the worst of it.

    The rolls were way bigger than what I'm use too. Great for their prices but should come with a warning.
