Good food. Good atmosphere. Drink service was a little slow, but not horrible. Server was good at assisting with food choices and understanding our wants and needs. Overall very enjoyable.

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!

Server was a bit too attentive, taking our plates away before we were finished. I guess I should have mentioned special occasion in addition to putting it on reservation, no clue...they moved us along to turn table. In and out. Food delicious.
