What's happened? – This place used to be good. But the last two times I got sushi here it was pretty bad.
The salmon nigiri (sp?) was as though a person trying for the first time at home to make it. Just a log of plain very lean salmon thrown on rice. It had no flavor, no visual appeal, nothing. I've eaten at a lot of sushi places in the US and while I don't expect 5-star food from here I expect better than that.
Ditto for the rolls I ordered. Had no flavor, just bits of fish rolled up.
I used to like this place but after the same stuff twice I'll look elsewhere
My Favorite Resturant – Sushi Thai has been my favorite resturant for years. So far I haven't found any place that beats Sushi Thai for quality and price. I love the boats, spicy tuna rolls, super white tuna nigiri style and they have the best ginger salad dressing around! The staff has always been super and I would recommend this place to anyone. Actually, I highly recommend it to everyone!
Pretty Disappointed – I'll start by saying I dined at the Sushi Thai of f Lake Boone several times over my time as a student at NCSU. Always ate sushi, always great sushi. As a young professional I live closer to Cary, and was excited when I read the reviews for this location. I took my girlfriend there for her birthday last night. As usual I ordered a "boat for two," containing a large quantity of assorted sushi and sashimi. I was impressed with the fried sushi rolls, but the philly roll was overwhelmed by cream cheese.and some of the sashimi tasted fishy. Sushi grade fish does not ordinarily smell or taste fishy. Some of the sashimi was frozen in the middle (or at least hard and ice cold) and the ginger was not shaved nearly thin enough. I still gorged myself and had a good time, but quality sushi is an emphasis for me when I dine at a sushi restaraunt. My advice is to avoid their sashimi and order some of the more intricate specialty rolls. This rules out the "boats" which are my favorite menu items. As far as Im concerned, if I am ordering individual rolls then I might as well go to sushi blues or kanki.
I was disappointed that they only had kirin and sapporo in 12 oz bottles rather than the 22 oz sizes. It was about 60 degrees in the dining room (with ceiling fans on) the whole time, so a jacket would have been useful. The waiter was difficult to track down despite having two tables. Luckily the hostess came over and took care of us several times when I wanted more ginger, rice, or another sapporo. Overall, I would say my experience was a disappointment and I will probably never go back, at least to this location. I really have to question the taste of some of these people who commented "best sushi," etc.
Great Thai Food! – Love this restaurant! Has phenomenal food. The best sushi and Thai food in Cary. Cute restaurant and usually not overly crowded. If you like Thai or Sushi I recommend you try this place!
We Compare All Sushi to Sushi-Thai – We feel like family at Sushi Thai. They treat their customers so well, and service is impeccable. Though I have enjoyed Thai there several times, the sushi draws us back weekly. Love their ginger dressing, love their miso soup, love their tamago, love their sashimi special selelctions.
Best Place to Eat Lunch – This is one of my favorite places to eat lunch during the week. The always give great service and the sushi is fresh and always tastes great. I love the atmosphere of the place with the detailed woodwork throughtout the entire restaurant. The only thing I would change is for the restaurant to be bigger. If you're looking for a very reasonably priced lunch Sushi Thai is the place to go.
We have our new favorite resturant!!!! – One of the best dining experiences that I have had in a long time. The restaurant was packed and they still had us seated in less than 20 minutes. The staff was very courteous and on top of everything, our drinks were never empty. They did a great job helping with explanations of the menu when we may have looked a little confused. The food was phenomenal, I am not a sushi guy, we went their more for my fiance, but the quality of the food has made me a sushi guy. I can?t wait to go back to try some of their other non sushi items as well.
Great job!!! Best customer service I have seen in the area!!!
Fantastic on all fronts – From the first time you walk into this small, unassuming, store front in Cary be prepared for some of the freshest and best prepared Thai and Sushi that you have ever had. The quality of the fish is top notch, the tuna was a beautiful piece of protein and tasted fantastic, the eel, the rolls and the Pad Thai were all excellent to above excellent. The interior is creative and attractive and the servers are great as well. I would highly recommend Sushi Thai!!
very happy -- excellent value – Went here on a whim with the wife for dinner... ordered a couple of rolls and some nigiri, some yakitori and was very happy with the quality of the food and the service. I'm not an absolute sushi connoisseur, but the fish was fresh and very tasty, and the chicken and vegetables on the side dishes were yummy as well. A very full meal (including a couple of rolls to take home) ended up being less than $35 before tip/tax, which is a very good price for decent sushi. It's not as good as some of the sushi I've had in San Francisco, but I also wasn't paying $80 a person for it here!!!
Meal Price more than just 1 – I have eaten at Sushi-Thai Cary several times, lunch and dinner, and find the food consistently good. Lunches were with coworkers and even the non-sushi eaters found something they liked on the menu. I think the Meal Price is a bit more than just "$." Cary is full of chain restaurants and all that entails; so nice to find a more unique offering available.
