    My ranking of fair is based on 1 poor and 2 average entrees. Swordfish awful! Had a rank after taste. Served on slightly warm, mostly raw vegetables. 2 other orders were average. The sushi was great. Great location. Most of the other restaurants in the area were busy. Ru Sans was light on customers. I guess the words out. I go to Japan 10 times a year and was hopeful Ru Sans was going to be a Diamond in the stars among the Nashville restaurants. The waitress was courteous and timely. She gave me a 25% comp on the fish although I barley touched it. Never saw management. Will never be a returning customer.

    I don't eat sushi, my friends do. Ru Sans has a great variety of cooked Japanese appetizers and entrees that I've always liked. It's close to work and easy in and out.

    We waited over 1.5 hours for a Shrimp fries rice and two tuna rolls.. Hardly worth the wait. Had to use restroom and had to pass dump to go inside - just gross. Ruined our evening!

    We weng at lunch. They had lunch buffet which had a variety. If you like good quality and fresh sushi do yourself a favor and avoid. If you have to eat there stick to the cooked food. I needed Tums after eating there.

    I've had better sushi but I've also had way worse. The service was slow but I think the guy was new and he was really nice. Everyone else in my party loved their food though.

    This was my second time dining here. I love their lunch, and enjoyed the first time I went for dinner. However I don't know where the disconnect came into play after ordering my food. I was brought my entree before my appetizers, and we had to ask where our appetizer was. My partner was brought out an eel appetizer when he ordered uni. My sushi had no flavor at all. Even with being fried....nothing. The bartender was a jerk and seem to not have the time to be bothered with us. Over all I'll choose Thai Papaya next time

    Our waiter was awesome - friendly and personable and attentive. Meal was delicious and I actually likes the smaller rolls better, less sauce and easier to eat in a bite. Total bill was about $25 pp with tons of food and a large sake which is super reasonable and the free valet was great!

    Consistently good sushi. Great service. Ambience is lacking, though.

    This was my first time trying this restaurant, i was not impressed. I ordered straight from the menu, no substitutions. Shrimp fried rice and an order of dragon roll...easy enough, but the shrimp fried rice was terrible! Even the waiter had to send it back and brought me a new order!! The dragon roll however was amazing.
