Excellent variety of food choices that really make for a fusion experience. Bar is very good as well with imaginative cocktails. Ambiance is very good with authentic looking private rooms providing a bit of intrigue.

The food was wonderful. Our server was also quite good: attentive but not intrusive. My rating is low because there were several hostesses, and they were not very knowledgeable. When we, party of 4, got there all the booths were empty, and the hostess wanted to seat us at a very little table. I asked if we could sit in a booth, and she had to go back and check to see if we could. The answer was no because the booths were reserved for later times, which was fine, totally understandable. Because it took forever for our food to come, I had plenty of time to watch other people come in. On 2 separate occasions, 2 different parties of 2 came in, and 2 other different hostesses tried to sit them at tables for 2. Each party asked if they could sit at one of the many open booths, and both hostesses let them sit at booths. Meanwhile, we were cramped at the little table. Lesson: reserve a booth when making a reservation and be prepared to wait a long time for your food.

Food was great! Sushi was great! Service was trash; I made reservations, I was seated then waited another 10 minutes to even get water, waited another 15 before someone asked us if we had been helped finally got helped. Rushed to order all our food for fear that it’d be another 20 minutes before someone came to help us. Took forever to get our checks

This was our first time visiting Mura. We had a reservation and were sat when we arrived. I saw a booth open beside the table she was leading us to and requested to sit there; I was told no, I have to place that request when I make the reservation. We sat and were greeted by a waitress after about 2-3min; everything was good until we actually ordered. We waited approx 50min (restaurant moderately busy) and watched multiple tables who were sat after us receive their meals before us. We were not provided any updates from the wait staff. We did not order anything complicated. My husband ordered sushi only and I ordered udon noodles with shrimp. When the food finally arrived, he said that they had made my noodles wrong and had to remake them. The food was decent but definitely not worth an almost hour wait. We may or may not return for a second visit to see if this is their norm or a fluke.

It had been a while since we had dined at Mura and all 4 of us were very pleased with our dinners. It felt like a quieter and delicious antidote to the the many crowded restaurants in the North Hills area. Loved the damages with truffle oil. We shall certainly return!

I took my daughter to Mura for her sweet sixteen birthday dinner. She ordered the chicken breast and when the dish came out, it was just two bland, overcooked, tiny pieces of meat. They were on a bed of unseasoned rice with nothing else on the plate. I forget the exact price, but it was in the mid-$20 range. We sent it back and my daughter was so disappointed that we ended up getting Chinese take-out from another restaurant later on in the evening.

That said, the staff at Mura was wonderful and accommodating and I commend them for how they handled us sending the food back. Also, the sushi, dessert, and drinks were all very good. I just wouldn't get the chicken breast dish, nor can I believe it ever left the kitchen in the condition it was in and for the price it cost. I'm a food writer, and in the past, I included Mura on a top 30 list of Triangle restaurants, but I would not include them on another list in the future, unfortunately.

Loved our waiter, Jake. He was very attentive. The sushi rolls were delicious as always! The only disappointment was that the specialty February roll did not come to table in shape of heart like it did a previous time this month for us.

We were so disappointed by our visit last Saturday night, 2/10/18. Mura is one of our very favorite restaurants, but it did not measure up during this visit. Upon entering the dining room, we were struck by the very strong smell of bleach. I went to the restroom, only to be greeted by an almost-intolerable smell of bleach and a very big mess. The mess on the floor just had a "Wet Floor" sign over it, rather then having been cleaned up. Our food was good, but did not meet our expectations from previous visits. The servings were much smaller and the quality was not worth the cost this time. We were sorely disappointed.

Menu is a bit limited if you don’t want raw sushi at lunch. Would like multiple soup (non dairy) options with cooked sushi or meat/rice combinations. Loved dessert options during restaurant week.
Waiter was a bit anxious to get our order started, but slow to refill drinks and give us our bill. Overall very good experience and we will be coming back!

Arrived 5:45pm
Ordered 6:01
First appetizer arrived @ 6:30
Next two appetizers arrive @ 6:45
Entrees @ 7:05
My entree served cold!!!
We couldn't wait any longer by this point.
We must have been asked 50 times by our server if there was anything else she could bring us.
The food as per my rating was very good.
However what we had to go through to get it was inexcusable.
IF we ever go back it would be for lunch, to see if our experience was a dinner service problem.

The person who seated us was unnecessarily rude and definitely needed an attitude adjustment! However, our server and the food MORE than made up for the rocky start. It would be in a diner's best interest to request a BOOTH, rather than the small tables that are otherwise available.
