Some family members recommended MC to us and we were very happy with the recommendation. We tried a bunch of different appetizers and sushi rolls. It's a noisy dining room, but other than that everything was excellent. We will go back for sure!

My wife and I have been twice in last month. We live in downtown Raleigh area, this restaurant is as good or better than any of the blue chips inside the beltline. Our new favorite place.

Went for filet mignon, hoping for the best. It was delicious, tender with a tasty Asian-influenced sauce. The squash flower appetizer stuffed with spinach and goat cheese was a winner. Will return.

Lovely cuisine. Fusion flavor. Same terrific quality as his former and now daughter's restaurant (Elements) in Chapel Hill.
The multiple small rooms kept the dining area blissfully quiet so that we could enjoy the dinner.

Fabulous meal on the covered porch. We Started with the fried avocado with charred corn salsa, Peking duck tacos, both amazing, two sushi rolls which were yummy but not memorable, and the the Chilean Sea Bass entree which was one of the best things we have ever eaten. The menu does change every Thursday, and then they had additional daily specials. Highly recommend trying it out, was a great evening!

My husband and I went here for his birthday. It was a great choice. We sat outside under a beautiful tree and absolutely loved the food. Not only was everything delicious but the waitstaff was fantastic. My water glass was never empty (and I drink a lot of water). Overall, the experience was fantastic. We will definitely return in the future!

Food and service were fantastic. We opted for the Omakase, which is listed on the online menu but not on their printed. First course was a variety of fresh sashimi including Toro. Second course was flash fried soft shell crab in a Szechuan peanut sauce. Third was lemon grass lamb chops which may have been the most tender lamb we've ever had. And the fourth course were two different desserts - pot de creme and a strawberry dish.
Everyone from the manager and our waiter were great. Definitely on our list of must-tries and we'll-be-back.

MC never disappoints. Fantastic food every time. Fusion cuisine at its best.

MC really is a gem of downtown Cary. Took the wife here for her birthday last night. She had the crispy duck and it was divine. I had MCs version of the Anthony Bourdaine lauded dish - Bun cha Hanoi. If it is still on the menu next time, I'll be getting it again.

Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to MC.

My mother and father-in-law were visiting on their way to their summer home. I decided to make a reservation weeks in advance at this restaurant because of the good reviews and the great location across from the fountain. The food was delicious the service was great. The weather was nice. We sat outside by the fence nearest Academy Street, but we did not realize that the fountain was undergoing some maintenance and was shut down. However, I realize that is not the restaurant’s fault.

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are prepared to spend $36 on an entrée.

The sushi rolls were just as filling and half the price as an entrée so I recommend trying those first. But the lemongrass shrimp with tortellini was delicious. And the land and sea sushi roll was also really good.

My pomegranate Mojito hit the spot and was presented well with a striped orange and white paper straw.

My wife and I would like to come back just for drinks at the bar sometime. The ambience is first class.
