Generally good but not very COVID safe since parties were sitting at the bar tables with no separator between where they make sushi and the diners.

The chirashi bowl is the best lunch, at the best price, in town. I love it!

M Sushi was great again. We're lucky to have this place in Durham. Would be a top spot even in a much bigger city!

Amazing dinner experience.

The sushi is always the best. They have a great wine list - including a Sancerre that was phenomenal.

Try the Tuna Appetizer. It's one of the best items on the menu.

And the Coconut Sorbet for dessert.

Truly terrific meal. We got the nigiri omakase which was delicious and prepared beautifully. Someone forgot to mention their allergy and the staff took it back to fix the dish even though it was really our fault we didn’t mention it. Will definitely be back again and again and again

It was great to celebrate a special occasion with a friend at M Sushi. I was so happy they served Sho Chiku Bai sake, it was my 47th anniversary of becoming a Nichiren Buddhist, and this was the sake I remembered drinking in my youth. Our waiter was very helpful with suggestions and we ended up having the perfect meal. I'm already planning a second visit.

Best nigiri I’ve ever had. We decided to make a reservation at M Sushi on a whim because my wife wanted to go get taiyaki at Sugar Koi a few minutes away, so we had no idea what to expect. The fish was so fresh and all of them melted in your mouth. The sea bass nigiri was insane, and I even really liked the horse mackerel which I usually can’t stand. My wife’s maki was very good as well, loved the salmon and pointed out how good their nori was. Real wasabi was a huge plus. The futomaki was good, but not a standout. The nigiri is what shined most for me!

We normally get the chirashi, but went with the nigiri. I don't think there is any way to go wrong at M. I can't wait for a special occasion to splurge with an omakase.

The food was simply out of this world!! Everything was at the appropriate temperature and even the white rice tasted so good. It was very pricey but I would compare it to going to Disney. Disney is expensive but you get what you pay for. The waitress was awesome and explained what to do with food that we had to either dip or cook. A great experience.

We had a 7:30pm reservation and were taken to our seats immediately upon arrival. Ron was our server and was great in every way, from suggestions to service! The sushi chefs are so skilled and the food was exquisite! We were treated like we were the only folks in the restaurant! Highly recommended!

Hands down one of the best meals of my life. M Sushi is my absolute favorite restaurant in the Triangle, and one of my favorite of all time. Everything about the meal was perfect - the food was incredible and impeccable, the service was outstanding, and the staff (including the hosts, servers, and food runners) were kind and welcoming. If I could give the work that this team does 10 stars, I would.

No one should miss out on the extraordinary experience of dining at M Sushi.

An evening at M Sushi is like participating in an episode of Chef’s Table. Every detail is perfect, every element of the meal like its own work of art. The Ishiyaki Bbq, Wagyu beef delivered to the table personally by owner and chef Michael Lee and cooked at our table on a hot Japanese river stone and dipped in chimichurri, was possibly one of the best things we have ever eaten. This was supplemented by an incredible chef’s sashimi selection and the M special and Futomaki rolls. Our server Audrey was super knowledgeable about the menu, made excellent suggestions (the Nikka Pure Malt Whiskey was incredible!), and patient with our occasional indecision. Coronavirus precautions were appropriate and included plexiglass shields between every two seats at the bar and well spaced tables in the dining room. Thank you M sushi for staying open and providing such and excellent meal and experience!

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.
