    I was disappointed with this dining experience. The service was mediocre and the food was decent, but not mesmerizing as it has been in the past. The atmosphere was disrupted by the staff mopping, cleaning & stacking chairs on top of tables prior to my table completing their entrees at 1030pm.

    New to Cary and wanted to take visiting family member somewhere nice on her last night. We were blown away by how fabulous the sushi was. Modern interpretation, supreme quality together with all the little extra touches (edamame hummus, warm scallion biscuits and coconut dinner rolls) made for a delicious meal. This will now be our go to sushi place. The rest of the menu looked fab too.

    A lot of time has been spent on presentation and not much time on the food itself. When asking the waitress what she would describe the food as, she had no response. It seems to be too many flavors thrown together on each entree. We went with three guests and tried each other's entree-same response by everyone. Nice place from atmosphere however so many more choices locally that have better food, more choices and are better value

    Outdoor eating area was pleasant but noisy with road traffic. Also another table had another diner full of himself and broadcast his boasting through the outside eating area. We asked to be moved inside and staff quickly and pleasantly moved us inside. Air conditioning was cranking so be prepared with shawl or jacket.

    Love the indoor decorating, we were put at a table right near the door so we got all the traffic coming and going, fortunately it was lunch so not too busy. Really thought the food was just perfect, everything we ordered was delicious. I do think the food prices are high and I don't like that you only serve wine by the glass. We were there for a birthday and told our waiter but no free dessert or anything to celebrate. I would love to go back but only for a special occasion.

    The food never dissapoints. However, this night, the service was slow and lacking. Had to remind wait staff of drink orders etc. It was stated from the staff "a light night for reservations, sent one bartender home". What ever the real story, we will return again.

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    We were in a group of 6...and wanted to add 2 people so we called in advance and they were not very accommodating but when we went to the restaurant it was half empty. Also the menu is not vegetarian friendly at all so we asked the chef to see what he can do and the answer was "we are low in inventory so we cannot accommodate". This is the first time I have heard that in a restaurant in Raleigh. Will not go there again and do not recommend for vegetarians...

    How far would you drive for dinner? If you are like us and want exceptional pan Asian food in a great environment, An is worthy of almost three hours round trip. Not your everyday Chinese food! Our choice was the sea bass for my wife and Singapore noodles for me - both outstanding. Sushi appetizers, and a nice Wine completed the experience. Of my hundreds of Asian dining experiences around the world, this in my personal top five.

    I had another delicious meal at An. I brought an out-of-town friend, and she thought it was amazing! We came for an early lunch, so the noise level was much lower than when I've been before at night. The sea bass and rice soup was so light and fresh! The Korean Fried Chicken had a crunchy, flavorful crust. We shared the Tropical dessert, with flavors of lime, white chocolate, and more! I use any event as an excuse to come dine at An!
