Diner Reviews
  • "My 10 year old chose Waraji for his birthday dinner - that says a lot! Our family loves the little raised rooms where you can dine on the floor in a traditional style. The food was really excellent. One of my son's favorites is gyoza, and I think that we had the best gyoza in Raleigh at Waraji. We also had sushi, sashimi, chicken teriyaki, and udon - all were great! Our waitress was perfectly attentive as well. We had great food and a great time!"

  • "Waraji never disappoints - superb sashimi and nigiri, a broad range of classic rolls, and the handful of unique gems (like the Suzuki 500) that you can't find anywhere else. I never hesitate to dine here myself or to host discerning sushi fans from the US or abroad. Waraji is also one of the few restaurants I will happily visit on consecutive nights with no fear of monotony or diminution. It's that good."

  • "My husband I decided to take my mother here for sushi when she visited from out of town. We had heard good things and were excited to try. Unfortunately, we were disappointed and couldn't understand how this place has such rave reviews. The decor is bare and lacking and while we didn't mind - there isn't a full bar which is a disappointment. We weren't that impressed with the sushi. We found it to be average and felt we have been to better. I wouldn't recommend this as I feel there are much better sushi restaurants to try with much better overall ambience."

  • "overall the restaurant was ok..the sushi wasn't bad but was not the greatest that I've had here in Raleigh. I went on a weekday night, so there was not much of a crowd, but the restaurant seemed kind of "dead". The service was very good, but the food was just ok."

  • "I am not a regular visitor and rarely eat Japanese. This is a special restaurant...the freshest of fish, great service, marvelous sake and a friendly, inviting place. So, once a year... I so value having this special experience."

  • "Went for first time at lunch and had really superior tonkatsu ramen. The Sushi Lunch special was OK but nothing special even though some reviews had praised the sushi - may be because this dish just came with the standard types of sushi rather than custom ones available at dinner. In any case, a nice Japanese place at very reasonable prices."
