    The Teriyaki steak was awesome. I tried my friends Seaweed salad & was pleasantly surprised as to how flavorful that was. I will return. The owner made an egg roll with fried eel & that too was great!

    The sushi here is very authentic, as is the atmosphere, and I love that. But it's also expensive, and I've never seen them offer many specials.

    The best sushi in the Triangle, if you want authentic nigiris and makis.

    Delicious negimaki (scallions rolled in grilled beef). Also try the volunteer roll. 👌

    Seems to have a fusion vibe rather than an all Japanese restaurant, and the food was alright - a little bland for my taste. Also, sit away from the entrance as it makes a lot of thumping sounds.

    Very high quality. They really don't skimp on the fish. Pictured is the Waraji roll and Spiral Ecstasy.

    Get a reservation as they often fill up quickly and the wait can be over an hour.

    Awesome Japanese meals and great sushi. A long trip for us (30+ minutes), but well worth it. One of our favorites.

    Come for lunch, sit at the sushi bar, allow the chef to create what s/he thinks you'll like ... and talk to Sandy.

    That's not nice to say about haru. I've had nothing but good experiences. I guess I'm not the expert this chick is, but judge for yourself.

    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!

    Sorry, buddy, but Haru is slightly better than dog food. Not even in the same class as Waraji. Stop embarrassing yourself by writing tips.

    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!
