    After being seated at the end of the bar closest to the door with the accompanying cold draft and waiting 10 minutes for a server to greet us, we almost decided to leave. While the service improved, it was not comparable to the attentiveness the couple next to us at the bar received. The dumplings were disappointingly tasteless, but the nigiri and rolls were delicious. I'd recommend M Sushi but lunch may provide a better experience.

    M Sushi is a hidden jewel in Durham’s continuing expansion into varied and fascinating cuisines. You are transported into another world that is Michael’s magic creation. An unexpected delight, and an easy ticket into another world.

    Everything was FANTASTIC. Seriously blown away. It was our first time here after wanting to try it for 5+ years. The dumplings and Donburi were out of this world. Even if you’re not vegan try the vegan ratatouille and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. :)

    First of all, i never leave a review but wanted to address this as i was very frustrated and upset about my experience here. I Heard a lot of good things about M sushi, Durham and wanted to give it a try with my husband. We had a 730 reservation for 2, and we got there around 715 ish. We did not get seated till 755-8pm when other groups (who checked in later than us) were seated already when there reservation was later than our timeline. ( i would be okay if it was just 1-2groups, but Im talking about 4-5 different groups!!!) Found out that the groups had table rezy vs bar rezy (which was ours).It would have been nice if they told us sooner about the situation or gave me an option about table availability but no updates whatsoever. We finally got seated around 755-8pm & obviously ended up having a later dinner than what we planned to. I was very unhappy with the situation as i was getting HANGRY. The management didn’t apologize at all but wanted to compensate “apology” through complementary edamame. I wish they came up to us and apologized about inconvenience rather than $6 edamame i could have ordered instead. Other than that, quality of nigiri was pretty good & service was fantastic. Terrible start and fairly good end i guess. Note : you might have to wait for another 30min even with your reservation so make sure to book an “earlier” rsvp time if you are going to be hangry like me.

    First and foremost, the food was fantastic, especially the specialty rolls. We also had a good table, the atmosphere was nice, and service was excellent. Unfortunately, our table was not ready for our reservation time, but other than that, we had a fantastic evening.

    The fish was fresh and top quality. The service was unfortunately the worst part. Our waiter was impatient and rude when we asked questions, right after he asked us if we had any questions. He rolled his eyes when we asked for a side of rice and avocado. I worked at a sushi bar for over 6 years and I would have never treated any customer in such a way. I wouldn’t someone to represent my resturant if they were unwilling to be patient and kind.

    Two of us were celebrating a birthday before going to a show at DPAC. After reading the reviews of others who had dined at M Sushi, we were excited to try a new place for sushi. It was awesome! We started with Sake and the 6 piece nigiri - both great! We had the Futomaki and rainbow roll along with several scallop sashimi. Wow. Even a regular roll was special, fresh, and delicious. We were sitting at the sushi bar, I and mentioned to one of the chefs named Rookie that we were celebrating a birthday. He said he was working on a special dessert that was not yet on the menu. He brought it out, and it was perfectly delicious. Our simple dinner before a show turned into a delightful celebration. We highly recommend M Sushi and will be back.

    As many times as I've eaten here it continues to astound. Service is time and again pleasant, attentive and helpful, this time recommending a dessert that had not made it to the menu (and one that was stellar!). Dishes I've had before, like the table smoked cod, continue to amaze with their quality. Management stopped by to ask how we were doing and was most helpful with suggestions for our next visit. With all this praise, I worry it'll be all booked up next time we try and return, but they deserve it.

    Tried the Grand Omakase and was blow away with the creativity and pairings of food that we would have never imagined would go together but we are still talking about the next day. M sushi is an incredible experience and I’d recommend the omakase to anyone looking for a curated meal for a special occasion.

    I had a hard time find the restaurant, as it was down an alley, but it certainly was worth the trouble! I drove 4 hours to try this restaurant and would do it again. The food was so good that I wanted to keep on ordering but my stomach eventually stopped me. It is expensive but I did not mind at all because it was worth it. I can't wait to go again and to also try their affiliates.

    We had a 9:45pm reservation for 6, they told us they were waiting for a table to leave. Turns out is was two tables that needed to leave so they could push two tables together. We were sat at 10:05 and told the kitchen closed at 10:15. 4 of the items we ordered were “out for the night”. We would easily have spent double our check if they had been better organized and not been moping up and basically ushering us out.
