Mura at North Hills Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
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.
I enjoy Mura very much - my husband and I have ate there several times and the service and food are always excellent. I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu the last time we went and was happily surprised by how creative the selections were. Highly recommend!
Restaurant week 2018: excellent choices of menus. Good value. Looked at their regular menus too and they all looked good. Food, service, and atmosphere definitely makes this restaurant one of my favorite japanese place in triangle. Will definitely come back!
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.
