Fantastic experience. The dumplings are where the apps are at. M Special sushi was also great and the mochi donuts were killer desserts.

This is probably the best restaurant I've ever been to. While the inside is quaint and unassuming, the food is the absolutely delicious. The food is absolutely incredible. We ate each bite in absolute silence because the food truly takes you somewhere you've never been before. I've just never had an experience quite like it. I wish I were a food writer so I could better describe the foods we tasted, but trust me when I say it was all so delicious and high quality. I recommend you sit at the bar so you can watch the sushi chefs prepare the food right in front of you. Our favorite foods include the scallop/lobster/truffle dumplings, ishiyaki bbq, and salmon skin buns. I highly recommend going with the nigiri omakase if you're sitting at the bar. The chef tells you exactly what they've prepared and the pieces are well-paced. I wish we lived closer to Durham so we could enjoy this incredible find allllll the time.
Covid-19 safety procedures: the sushi bar has plexiglass between each party. Every employee was masked and every patron of the restaurant diligently wore their masks when traveling about the restaurant. Temperatures were taken upon entering the restaurant.
While I felt uneasy about going out to eat during the pandemic, their precautions helped ease my worries.

This place could be very good but they focus too heavily on takeout to the detriment of the diners in the restaurant. Constantly running out of fish and not willing to serve anything a la carte. I spent $700 on the grand omakase and sake and asked for 6 pieces of nigiri at the end and they would not accommodate me. This place used to be good but they got too big for their own good, and allow greed to diminish service and the overall dining experience.

Although not cheap, the quality and service are top notch. If not the best sushi and japanese restaurant in the Triangle, definitely among the top 3. I absolutely love japanese food and sushi especially. I have not visited enough in the area as i moved here not long ago but until this place, it was a big dissapointment.
I definitely will be back.

It’s very intimate and quiet. A great place to talk to a friend or a date. It reminds me of a basement restaurant in NYC. They have the best sushi in the Triangle hands down and there beer and liquor is well paired with fish. It’s unfortunate it’s not bigger and only accommodates a smaller number of people and incredibly difficult to ever walk in and get a table. But it is well worth the wait and work to get in for such a wonderful meal and dining experience.

We have always been big fans of M Sushi. This was our first visit since the pandemic. The food was just as wonderful as always. With respect to health measures, table seating has been spaced out so that it's at every other table only, and the there are plexiglass dividers at the bar seating. All of the staff were wearing masks. We ate probably a bit faster than we normally would to minimize time inside.

M Sushi is one of our favorite restaurants. The sashimi always tastes so fresh, the chefs know what they're doing and even their rice tastes amazing. The vibe and ambiance is dark and intimate and we always request a seat at the bar to watch the chefs. Highly recommend the Lite Omakasi. The only thing we have ever been lack luster about from M is the lobster appetizer. Looks very cool, but the flavors aren't there. Can't wait to go back and try the Wagu.

M Sushi is not only my favorite sushi restaurant. It is my favorite restaurant of all time.

The food is absolutely amazing. Fresh, delicious and unlike anything you can find anywhere else.

This is my wife's favorite restaurant as well as my 14 year old son's favorite.
