Good sushi at a good price – This is a great place to grab some good sushi at a low price before and night out on the town or for a quick lunch. They even have a lunch buffet which is fantastic.

The two big downfalls are the service and the noise. The service is often very slow, order are often messed up and when part of a large party the bill gets all confused.

When its busy its also very loud, the pumping techno music doesn’t help a whole lot.

Overall a pretty good place.

Great if you want to try a lot of items – I moved here from Atlanta, where Ru San's is a staple, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was one here as well. I love Ru San's because as a beginner in the sushi world, my hubby and I are able to try several items for a few dollars without feeling like we wasted our mney on something that we didn't enjoy. Some of the items are as low as $1 each. The fried rice is excellent as well. It has fresh veggies in it and it's not greasy like chinese restaurants. I would recommend this place to anyone who is new to sushi and want to explore your choices. On the weekends it can get a bit crowded and a little loud. So come early or expect to wait a little while for a table.

Terrible – this place is one of the worst sushi places in town, it;s like the Mcdonalds of sushi. Cheap $10 lunch if you like fried rolls, frozen fish and swine flu.

Most Fun Sushi Experience in Charlotte! – i can't go a week without eating at Ru Sans. Whatever I'm in the mood for - they have it! And if it's not on the menu, they will create it for you.

Plus, the lunch buffet is only $10... can't beat it!!!

Great Sushi, HORRIBLE service! – The sushi at Ru SAn is wonderful, pobably the best in the area; however, the service is terrible! It is loud and chaotic and the goal is to get you to eat quicly and leave. The last and I mean the "last time I will ever eat at Ru San" we were asked to leave after only eating lunch for an hour so they could turn the table to new customers, how rude. Even thought the food is great, I will not be returning..in fact, the direct quote was "look at the door, people are waiting"...I could not believe it! We were paying customers trying to enjoy lunch.

food good but inconsistent; service poor – I have been to RuSans about four times, and every time the food is phenomenal. However, I have had problems with getting what I ordered and getting it in a timely manner, I believe due to language barriers. The first time I ate there, I didn't get my entree at all-I was with 5 other ladies and had to sit and watch them eat while they took FOREVER to re-order my meal. A few of my friends didn't even get what they ordered but were so hungry they didn't care. I gave the place a second chance and have been mostly satisfied, with the exception of the last time. On that occasion, I asked my waiter three times for a sweet tea and never got it-plus the calamari appetizer I ordered (usually a big plate, the stuff is $7) came on a tiny plate and look skimped.

I am recommending this place for the food, it can be damn good if you get the right thing.

Best Sushi Selection I've ever seen – My wife and I just went for the first time. We didn't know what to expect with the reviews since it had come so highly recommended by friends. It felt like walking into a rave (in a good way - they played some remixes of some of my favorite DJ's). I only started eating sushi a couple years ago, and I have never seen a menu with this many options for so CHEAP. Honestly, we spent more on wine and dessert than on the food and I still ate more than I usually do. It took a little while to be seated, but it was because they were packed. The wait times were told to us well ahead of time - a few minutes for seating, 20-30 minutes for food because we walked in while there were a lot of people and parties. They asked if that was ok since it was such a busy interval and were always really nice to us. The only yelling we heard was the cooks yelling "Thank You" and some other things I couldn't understand - it seemed friendly though. Honestly, super flavor on the sushi, the menu is very accurate, our wait staff was very attentive, yet gave us room to eat. It took a little while to get a bill, but like I said it was a very packed interval. I do not know if it is always a long wait, but it was completely worth it to us. We will be back for sure!!

Cheap, high quality sushi – very good sushi for a very good price... has an expansive menu of both sushi and cooked meals all within an affordable price range... have eaten at many of the more expensive sushi places in town and find myself enjoying rusan's as much if not more than most of the rest.
