Love this place – This place has the freshest sushi, they make it right after you order them so there's no way it is mass-produced. I dine in on average 2-3 times per week either for lunch or dinner. You can't beat any place in Charlotte that serves lunch sushi for $9, given with a wide variety of sushi (mostly places would only serve you rolls not that many types of fish to pick from). They do get busy during lunch especially on Thursday and Friday. Usually I get my food on average of 15 mins or so (1 time it did take them about 30 mins but the place was packed with people waiting outside). It doesn't make any sense for someone to get their sushi after an hour and half no matter how busy they might be. I do suggest order everything that you can eat at the beginning but do not waste anything including rice because their menu and servers clearly stated that you will be charged if you waste the food (i.e. picking out the fish of the rice is a No No, I have seen people done that few times and tried to argue their way out of paying). During lunch, there are 3 sushi chefs and this week I noticed a new sushi chef so I guess they just hired another one. Overall, I like the interior design, friendly service and most importantly their sushi is really fresh.
BAD experience! – During lunch for their “all you can eat sushi” they only have two sushi "chefs" for the entire place. It took one hour and a half for us to get the first part of our order. The sushi is mass produced at a very rapid pace and it is not accomplished artfully. Very, very sloppy presentation. The fish and other seafood used was very low quality and not diversified enough. Borderline fresh and cheap. You definitely get what you pay for (if they serve it to you on time). The servers were polite and did their best under the circumstances. We had to leave before we could get the second half of our order. I am glad since the food was terrible. What is most concerning is that I approached one of the managers/owners and told him about our experience. He was arrogant and defended his flawed system. He actually told us that we should plan to have at least two hours for lunch there... LOL. Good luck serving the busy professionals in the vicinity with reasonable time for lunch breaks! He did not even offer an apology for the awful service and food quality. I hope they improve their service and food quality, but most importantly their attitude.
Great New Boutique Style Sushi Place, AMAZING LUNCH SPECIAL – Had dinner last Friday with a group of friends celebrating an engagement and was not disappointed. We had quite a large party but they accommodated us very well and we actually had a few servers for our table so that we were never without drinks or food.
The sushi is pretty good. The rolls are fairly sized and priced competitively for the area. The maguro sashimi was a little odd because it was rolled up thin cuts of fish rather than a chunk which I am accustomed to, nonetheless it was fresh. Next time I will probably try the nigiri but fear that it may be a thin slice on rice. The good thing about nigiri/sashimi is that it is very inexpensive ranging from $3-MP (toro/Giant Clam) We had ordered a couple appetizers, one the edamame which was a pretty large serving and the other were the veggie rolls. The veggie rolls lacked flavor but were very crisp and fresh. Could use a dipping sauce to add some flavor.
As stated in other reviews, the beer selection is quite nice for a small place like this. With plenty of choices in Japanese beers ranging from Tsing Tao to Sapporo and Asahi ( I recommend the 32oz Asahi).
Overall great experience, friendly staff and management and even offered us a free deep fried oreo and mint ice cream dessert which resembled sushi and wasabi. Will definitely go back.
UPDATED: Just had lunch here today and they offer a $9 all you can eat sushi menu which is actually very good in selection for the price. They offer about 8 different sashimi (actually was served nigiri), about 20 different rolls, rice, noodles, veggie spring rolls all inclusive of this 9 bucks. One thing to remember when you order these rolls, they are only 4 pieces per roll. During the lunch rush it can get busy, so I would suggest ordering all at the beginning so you're not waiting your full lunch break. Keep in mind you can order as much as you want, but don't order too much and not finish it, or else you may ruin it for everyone else!
Thank you for having the engagement party at Pisces! I hope the group enjoyed everything as well. Thank you for the comment, we will definitely take your experience and comment on the veggie roll into consideration as we are designing new sushi rolls and our new menus.
Top Notch – I was pleasantly surprised that a restaurant this size could comfortably accommodate a party of 14. From the outside, Pisces looks rather small, but open the doors and you'll notice a classy atmosphere and adequate space for larger gatherings. They also have private booths, tucked away around one of the corners...perfect spot for date night. Quality of sushi was excellent and menu came equipped with one or two rolls I've never seen before such as the XOXO, (highly recommended) topped with grilled scallops and honey mayo eel sauce. Drinks came at reasonable prices with a great selection of asian beers and some fairly decent drink specials -Friday night was $3.00 sake bombs. All in all...our group had a blast ---recommended!
Thank you so much for having your party at our restaurant and for this review! I hope everyone had an amazing time when the party was here!
Awesome Sushi in Charlotte – I have tried various sushi rolls at Pisces and haven't come across one roll that I do not like. The service is amazing and the people go out of their way to assure you the best service possible. The atmosphere is very relaxing and inviting. I would recommend Pisces to anyone that is looking to eat sushi in the Charlotte area.
Worth the Value – Went monday, the service was slow, but they had a special; buy one roll get the other free! Sushi was fresh and tasted good, not the best sushi in town. But I would go back and recommend it..
Thank you very much for taking your time out to visit our restaurant and leaving the comment.
We are working very hard on improving everything including our customer service, I apologize for the service you recieved. I promise we will make the correct adjustments and make sure our service will be faster and better in your future visits.

Pisce's Sushi – I have been there a couple of times, and everytime I go I get a different sushi roll. I haven't had one yet that I haven't loved. Best sushi by far in the city of Charlotte.,.I recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves any kind of japanese food or sushi!
Best Sushi in Charlotte!! – I went for lunch last weekend and loved it! I had the cucumber special roll, the Hawaiian and the Tuna Tataki. My friend doesn't eat sushi so she had the noodles, skewers and pot stickers. Everything was delicious!
The decor is modern and super comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the owner's even came to our table to say hello.
I've found my new favorite spot!
I almost forgot!! They have the best dessert! It's green tea ice cream with tempura Oreo's! Def worth cheating on your diet for!
