  • "The Sushi was very fresh. The server we had kept forgetting to bring our drinks and other things we had to keep after him. Great place will be back."

  • "Yes, they have creative rolls but many common ingredients, cream cheese, tempura this or that....really need to rethink the variety of their rolls."

  • "Service was good however only saw waitress a handful of times"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "My wife and I chose Mura for our anniversary dinner because the specialty Sushi rolls are hands down the best in Raleigh. This visit was no exception and the food continued to exceed our expectations. The staff went out of their way to make our night special. I would highly recommend Mura for anyone looking for a romantic and delicious dining experience."

  • "Excellent choice of rolls - some standard and some very unique - shared 6 different rolls with friends and enjoyed them all. Would definitely recommend - Tuesdays are Buy One get one Half Off, making it a little more reasonable."

  • "We had the firecracker shrimp as a starter and it was delicious. Sweet and mildly spicy flavors. The sushi was fresh and beautifully presented."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Very very slow server, and service this time Took nearly 50 minutes to get our food. This is not typically the norm for this restaurant, so I can't help but think most of it was the server..... Great that they allow well behaved dogs on the patio."

  • "Went to Mura after a hard day at work to unwind and enjoy some food, drinks and conversation. Something was going on at the sushi bar so it took awhile for us to receive our sushi. Luckily, we ordered appetizers and drinks. The drinks were amazing. And once we got our sushi it was amazing also. I sat outside and my one issue is they allowed individuals to have their pets sitting in the chairs and near the table. I don't mind the animals being there but next time on the ground."

  • "We were impressed with the sushi. Definitely the best sushi we have had in North Carolina. The sashimi melted in your mouth and the sushi rolls were spectacular - flavorful and fresh. Delicious cocktails."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Hadn't been here for awhile! Food was top notch but the service was lacking as our server disappeared for long periods of time when we needed him. Interior was nice as I see they have updated the table and chairs but they forgot to update the light fixtures (ugly)! Overall good experience."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The food is a little on the pricey side, but still worth the trip. There are 30 or so specialty rolls plus a full menu. The beer / wine / mixed drink list is pretty good as we'll."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Mura never disappoints. My fiance and I went Saturday the 15th to celebrate Valentine's and had an excellent experience. My fiance who is a newbie to sushi loves Mura's specialty rolls. Even the main course items that are not specifically sushi are delicious at Mura, which is a detail that is sometimes overlooked at other Japanese restaurants."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I attended the day after Valentines Day. The atmosphere is dimly-lit and very cozy. The tables in the middle are a little close to each other in my opinion. If you want a little privacy ask to be seated in a booth area, however, that seating is limited so make that known in your reservation. Other than that the food is great, and the server was good. This was our 2nd time there."

  • "Overall everything was nice and the food was good. Way too pricey for what we got, though. I have been to many sushi places with the same great quality food, for a fraction of the price."

  • "Mura is a great place to dine. There is always a great crowd and their service is always spectacular."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I dined at this restaurant during restaurant week and found the experience to be distasteful, no pun intended! First, I waited at the host station for an inordinate length of time and the host walked up without apologizing. Second, I waited to be serviced by a somewhat snooty waitress; however, the waiter seemed to be very pleasant to his patrons and me. Neither the food, nor ambience would suggest the host and waitress have a reason for their pompous attitudes. The soup was a beef broth at best, the triangle roll was actually pretty good, but the desert (poached pear) was uninspiring and required ice cream or a whipped cream. I wouldn't return to this restaurant."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The restaurant had a great feel which started with a nice bar/lounge area in the front, some raised tables on the left side, and a warm back area. We went specifically for Triangle Restaurant Week to try some of the cuts of sashimi and they large, flavorful, and outstanding. Perfect fare for a lunch, and we ventured off the set menu for some really good mackerel, blue marlin, and some extra salmon pieces. The cuts were much larger/wider than several places in the area, which gave the pieces a definitely (different but) better taste than other pieces I've had in the past. Absolutely will go again, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great sushi experience."

  • "Although I don't live in NC, I do come to Mura whenever I am in town..the sashimi is great and the services is generally great as well. I was celebrating birthdays with a friend, and we ordered sake bomb... the beer was not a japanese beer...? and the reason we were told is because " the bartender didn't want to waste a bottle of sapporo....." i don't think we were supposed to know that... because we did pay a price that probably cost more than a bottle of sapporo for one sake bomb... I will go back for the sashimi and sit at the sushi bar... but probably will not want anything that bartender has to make.."

  • "My wife loves sushi and I was looking for someplace special to go for her birthday. I don't have a lot of experience with sushi but we were going to be in the area and Mura seemed like someplace she would like. I loved the food and my wife, an experienced sushi connoisseur, said it was incredible! The staff was helpful, polite, and friendly: they even worked us in earlier than our reservation. The overall ambiance was perfect for a romantic evening out without the kids. Only the high prices would prevent us from returning regularly. I found Mura to be a little expensive; however, it is not unreasonable for the outstanding food, service, and experience. If you show more restraint than we did it is not too bad and definitely worth the money."

    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "We were in the mood for some sushi so chose Muri. Had our 1 yr old granddaughter with us and they were accommodating. Had the spider and rainbow rolls, and some salmon sashimi. Rolls were excellent, attractively presented and generous size. Salmon was very fresh tasting with ample amount of fat in the salmon. Only negative was the bowl of brown rice which was rather dry. Server was reasonably attentive and responsive to our requests."

  • "My lovely fiancee' and I,gathering for my birthday along with in-laws and out-laws, had a short wait just past our reservation time so no problem there. We liked that patrons are not seated so close to each others tables just to maximize profit as so many establishments are doing these days. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and even recommended items that were not on said menu. The food was well presented, very colorful, and extremely fresh. The sake was abundant and very tasty, nice variety of cold. I had a wonderful bday and even got a candle in my desert...nice touch."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "I had some of the best sushi in North Carolina here. The server was spot on and made sure I wanted for nothing. One of the few places in the country that serves real wasabi and it took an act of deep conviction not to order more rolls. The sushi was so fresh and the rolls I ordered were not overdone."

  • "Went on a Friday night for my boyfriend's birthday. He had never been to Mura, so I was excited to bring him there. I had made a reservation and we were seated right away in a nice booth that was good for private conversation. The atmosphere and ambiance were ideal for a romantic date night. The waitress was very friendly and attentive, and the drinks/apps/sushi came out very quickly after we ordered. The food as always was outstanding, the freshest and highest quality sushi around. At one point during the meal what I assumed to be the manager came and asked us how we were doing and how we liked everything. I had also told the waitress that we were celebrating a birthday and she let us pick out something from the dessert menu."

  • "We stopped in for lunch before taking the kids to a play. Not sure what to expect with kids but it was nicer than we thought. The lunch Bento box was huge and very tasty. Although no kids portion items my older daughter loved the strip steak!"
