Sushi | Durham, Durham

My siblings and I went out to celebrate our oldest sisters birthday. We were seated at a table across from the sushi bar, Ben was our server for the evening. Water was brought over and a round of drinks ordered. They came quickly and we placed an order for four small plates. Once we received our first plate of food which was the edamame we ordered four rolls of sushi. Our first roll arrived with our dumplings (phenomenal) and our scallops (crudo? it was delicious also) the roll was tasty, we devoured it. Our octopus small plate was the last two arrive followed by two more rolls. At this point our server said that we had received everything. My siblings and I all counted the food and thought we were missing something. Ben came to the table with another plate in hand and said he was mistaken and that our soft shell crab roll was the last of our order. So we ordered more. Another round of drinks as well. But the soft shell crab roll was amazing, so we got two. We finished dinner with one of all the desserts, a chocolate mousse cake, green tea tiramisu, and a pudding. These were all also delectable. We had a wonderful dinner, Ben was great. We will all be back and bringing friends. More

We enjoyed our meal. It would be nice to have some more vegetarian options and a vegetarian special. The menu is the same thing every time, which makes us not want to go as often. Food was good. More
