Mura at North Hills Ratings and Reviews
Always a pleasant place to dine, but disappointed in dinner menu, this time around...While the food was well prepared and presented and the roasted garlic fried rice has amazing flavor and meats were perfectly cooked, there are few pricey choices, ...used to serve a tempura meal...now just an appetizer at dinner. Wish they continued to offer some of their lunch entrees after 4pm. The sushi menu, however, is delightful, if you're hungering for that.
Every thing was great. The only problem I had that the floor was wet near the hostess desk and I slipped and caught on to a bar table and my friend as not to fall. The hostess was very unconcerned and said that, “Yes, it’s wet due to the rain”. I suggested a wet floor sign and she more or less shrugged it off. I told our waiter and he said he would take care of it and he did.
This was our second visit. Started with calamari. It was a nice sized shareable portion, and contained the more desirable "rings" and none of the "leggy" pieces. Companion had Ribeye Teppanyaki, and I had the short ribs. Overall, both meals were delicious. The ribeye was tender and juicy, but appeared smaller than its purported 12 oz. size paired with generous portions of vegetables. The short ribs were placed atop a heaping pile of purple mashed potatoes and drizzled with a demi glace sauce. A side of sauteed brussels sprouts accompanied the dish. The charring of the ribs seemed intentional in adding the smoky flavor to the dish, but it went slightly beyond to create almost a slightly burnt taste. Still quite tasty. Only other negative on this dish was presentation. The entire plate was black and dark and completely unappetizing in appearance. Flavors did blend beautifully. Overall a pleasant dining experience.
My date and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. She was very taken with the style and ambience of the restaurant. She also commented multiple ties about how delicious her ribeye steak was. I had been there several times before, and fully enjoyed our experience.
Mura is one of our favorite spots for sushi in the Triangle. The ambiance is better than most, and there are plenty of different seating options offered, including private rooms with traditional Japanese service. This occasion was my birthday, and Mura was on point as usual. The sushi was fresh, beautifully presented, and delicious. Both server and GM were friendly and attentive. Screaming O rocks!
I must say this was my second time eating at Mura. Once for lunch and once for dinner. The service was impeccable! I, nor my wife needed to ask for anything unless it was not common. The waiter was always there to top off our drink and ask if we needed anything else. It's a shame I cannot remember his name. Needless to say his tip was well deserved. I will definitely be going back in the near future.
My husband and I took our son for sushi. His request for his NCSU Parent's Weekend dinner.
I found the restaurant using Open Table based on its high customer ratings. Those high ratings are very well deserved and the food was just amazingly delicious. So, so good. The service was also superb and the subdued atmosphere made our evening extra special.
Lots of interesting and unique sushi rolls on the menu. We tried four different ones as recommended by the waitress and all were outstanding. It was a nice evening so we were able to sit outside on the patio. Would definitely return next time we are in Raleigh.
This was our first visit to Mura. We ordered the Volcano Shrimp to start, and it was a tasty choice. Very similar to Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish. Atmosphere is more upscale than average. Sushi antd sake choices are extensive. We opted for Teppanyaki preparation of chicken and shrimp, $25 and $23 respectively. This seemed a bit pricey, but portions were large and both meals were delicious. We would return.
We had a group of four at dinner last Friday evening. Mura had just rolled out a new cocktail menu, and we were excited to try it, but didn't have the best experience with the mixed drinks. The pear vodka/elderflower concoction was not pleasing by any stretch, and the moscow mules (not on special, but a good go-to) were completely overwhelmed by lime juice. The rose wine they recommended was great! The sushi was good like always, although our favorite dish was the pork belly sliders appetizer - by far. Our server was a bit green. He clearly forgot to put in our orders for blue marlin and striped marlin nigiri, which we reminded him of toward the end of the meal. We said he could cancel it, but he insisted it was on its way, and it was served...after the check. I usually am very forgiving with reviews but Mura has been around long enough and there are so many good sushi options around for the same price or less. We expected better.
We are frequent, but not super regular diners at Mura. We enjoy the fresh sushi and sashimi, the convenience, the ambiance and the staff. The choice of outside dining or inside appeals to us, as do the private dining rooms for family events. Mura is not cheap, but we feel we get good values for the bucks.
Really good selection of sushi, but offered alternatives for less enthusiastic sushi folks. Had outdoor seating. Easy very good food and served in an appetizing style. Offered private rooms with rice paper doors and traditional Japanese floor/pillow seating which was very interesting. The interior, in general, was a little too much of a mishmash of black lacquer and mirrors - cliche and little lower quality. While our server was very friendly, she lacked knowledge and was over rehearsed with a script.
My wife and I went here on our date night (without the kids) and had a wonderful time. It was quiet, the service and ambience we're fantastic. Our waitress, Marie, took wonderful care of us. We can't wait to come back. The food was more than just good, it was an experience.
