A word from Sushi One
We serve the best grade of tuna, salmon, yellow tail, octopus, scallops, and much more seafood! This seafood is served at its prime and you’ll find it will literally melt in your mouth. You'll taste the freshness and sweetness with every bite! For those who are less adventurous, we also serve cooked cuisines from various parts of the Far East, from Chinese to Singaporean! For the freshest seafood this side of the Atlantic, and for the finest Oriental culinary art, you don't need to go to Japan or the Far East; it's right here in the heart of North Raleigh!

    My wife ordered sushi and was pleased with the amount, presentation and taste. I ordered a drink from the menu and it turned out unavailable. My second drink order took 15 minutes to arrive. My food order of shrimp tempura was not even close to correct (I received a plate of sushi) and we had to wait for my correct food. When it finally arrived it was very good. As Sushi One is the closest sushi restaurant to our house we may try it again, but won't rush to do so.

    Sushi One has outstanding food with several specials which keeps the total bill well within reason. On a Friday night they offered buy one get one free sushi roll and had $6 drink specials - a great bargin. Everyone completely enjoyed their meal. Food service was quick and our waiter did a great job keeping drinks full. I highly recommend Sushi One. We noticed many people sitting outside (it was a nice evening) and inside was very, very quiet.

    This place is great no matter what you're looking for. My fiancé always gets the sushi. It is fresh and beautiful in appearance. Extremely tasty… Her favorite spot in Raleigh. I normally get a combination of chicken, rice and/or noodles. All of them are great. You know how some Asian restaurants' chicken doesn't quite look like chicken (mystery shredded meat)? Not here. It's clearly high quality, white breast meat served in chunks so you can tell that it's actually chicken and its tender and wonderful. I can't say enough about this place. We drive-by four or five other sushi places to get here at least once a month and enjoy it every time. Check it out if you haven't!!

    The name says it all.. The sushi was perfect.... The hibachi style dishes were out of this world. I highly recommend the filet mignon... Medium rare of course.

    went here for my girlfriend's birthday. We were unaware it was BOGO on sushi rolls, which is the best kind of surprise to get. The food was magnificent, I almost wanted to order more. Our server (I don't recall his name, but he was a middle-aged asian gentleman) hadn't been there long but was attentive, polite, and friendly. Highly recommended and will be back again for sure.

    Their rolls had SO MUCH rice that it was hard to find the fish. The sushi is buy one, get one free, so if you'd like to pay half price for half quality food, eat here, you'll be amazed! The place was practically dead at 8pm on a Sunday except for a few tables of adolescent girls using Groupons. The odd waiter offered a box for the large pieces of nori-wrapped rice I'd picked my fish out of. At least he refilled my water constantly.

    My wife and I dine often at the Lafayette Village restaurants some are better than others but we hadn’t experienced Sushi One until early January. Since then we’re been back twice, with friends our last visit, to share this jewel of a restaurant. Whether you’re a pure sushi lover or enjoy nigiri Sushi One has excellent choices and interesting combinations. We combine their 2 for 1 sushi rolls as a starter and share a main entrée, my wife is fond of Salmon Lover, as a combination they make a complete evening meal. Quality is equal to Mura’s at North Hills and prices might be a bit lower and since Sushi One is only 3 miles from our house it’s now our ATF.

    The service was not the greatest and we had to ask multiple times for the same item. Also, it took quite a to our food out to us even though the restaurant was not full. I would come back again simply to sit outside as Lafayette village is really cute.

    We had a group of about 16 people and Sush One and staff were able to accommodate us very well. The food was awesome, the staff was friendly, courteous, and timely. Overall a great experience. I do and will be going back. Some of the better sushi in the area. the Pad Tai is one of my favorites also.

    My GF is sort of a sushi aficionado and this place has some of the best around. Always well done and friendly people. I enjoy the chicken and the fried rice is really really good (I know it's a small thing but it is noticeably better than most). We have also enjoyed the chicken lettuce wraps (again, the best we have bad) and the crab Rangoon. Depending on what you get it can be a little pricier than your standard Asian food takeout but if you are at the point in your life where QUALITY beats quantity go here. Highly recommended.

    We had an outstanding experience at Sushi One. The prices were (in my opinion) lower than what we are accustomed to for the level of service and food quality. We enjoyed a couple of the chef's specialties, spring rolls as an appetizer and wine and beer. The atmosphere was relaxing and quiet on a Saturday night, and our waiter was outstanding. I have been there before for lunch and the sushi is very fresh and delicious. Great hidden gem in North Raleigh.
