Good sushi joint – I am very picky about sushi and have had bad experiences elsewhere. I was happy to find a new place for good sushi. Fresh fish is good here, and the sake list was more than most carry. The Can sake was the best I've ever had, if you like cold sakes you have to try it. I did have to wait to be seated at the sushi bar, which should be first come first serve, Besides that was great all around.
good food – I came in on a saturday only cause I had coupon but was pleasantly suprsised by the authenticity of your food and the great freindly service.
Great place for sake and sushi – Mura is one of my favorite restaurants in Raleigh. They have fantastic sushi that always seems to be really fresh. Recently they changed up their sake menu as well, everything seems to be much more affordable and delicious! The servers are always very helpful at recomending great dishes and beverages.
Love This Place – I've been a regular at Mura for quite sometime now and can't get enough. Well now they offer a bunch of new martinis and have lowered the prices of them which is always nice. Also they have a great new sake list with better desriptions and the servers are always happy to explain them in more detail. I also like the lounge area, its always nice to have the server remember me and what i like to drink. Keep up the good work!
Great Sushi – I have been a regular diner at Mura for a little over a year now but recently decided to have lunch there with a few collegues. A few were out of town guests that were not too familiar with sushi. Our server walked us through the entire lunch menu and made recommendations to suit everyone's tastes. The Screaming O Roll is a must as well as the Sushi Bento Box. I definintely recommend it for a quiet business lunch.
always awesome – I have been eating here for a long time and the presentations have been getting prettier and prettier. The sushi always looks like artwork and the service is awesome. We went with a party of 8 and they had the automatic gratuity but that's the same pretty much wherever you go if it's a nice place. It's always worth it!
Awesome sushi. Great service – Best sushi I've experinced in ten states and counting.
The Screaming O and Hurricane rolls are awesome.
I never knew I loved Sake until Mura's extensive Sake menu blew me away. I've never had bad service, and only feel bad that it took me this long to post this review.
Start Earning It – I have been to Mura at least Six times. They have good Sushi not the best in town by any stretch but great atmosphere accounts for a lot. Recently I went with a group of six, which entitles them to an auto 20% gratuity. I am usually a 25-30% guy WHEN EARNED. I think the fact that it was known it would be added regardless spoke to the server who was LAZY, absent, and slow. I may return and if I do and it is with a group I will insist on Grat not be auto added.
Awesome hot spot – I've been coming here since they opened, and the place never disapppoints. The rolls are awesome, and the newer additions keep it fresh. I'm sorry but the Hurricane roll is amazing. I know it's not old school sushi but I don't care- it's ridiculously good stuff. They have enough to offer people who don't eat sushi regularly, which is nice. I myself like all the hardcore raw goods but it's tough to get my parents and some friends on board. The new selections make it easy to keep almost everyone happy. Our family has grown since they opened the doors, so I would like to ask the management to consider something for the kids. Servers are great at finding kid-friendly sides like french fries, but my kid won't touch most of what we eat and maybe some kid's selections would go a long way. Love the new beers by the way- keep up the good work.
fallen off – Sure it's beautiful, but you can't eat atmosphere. I have been coming here for years and it is a great bar scene on Fri/Sat nights. But for lunch any day of the week, it is just ok. The service is slow and not particularly attentive. The sushi is sometimes made messily, even during non-peak times. But the thing that irks me is how often the tables feel icky or sticky even though they have been wiped down. Does not inspire confidence. That said, the food is good, but not wow.
