Waraji is still top sushi in Raleigh bar none! The boat we ordered was beautiful and yummy, we had plenty to share, and we had an excellent bottle of sake to accompany the meal

We have been here 3-4 times now. Always terrific. This time we arrived early for our reservations so we elected to get started at the sushi bar. Before we knew it our reservation time had come and gone so we stayed at the bar. Obviously we ate sushi. We started with an assortment and then started adding onto the order. I was particularly enamored with the Blue fin and the Mackerel that night. This was the best Mackerel I had ever had. I think it had to do with the preparation. This fish is often oily, bloody strong smelling and tasting. I used to fish for them years ago in NY. Its used in cat food. This was so incredibly mild, wonderful. The way it was sliced and presented was beautiful. The Blue fin was SO FRESH. It almost melted in your mouth. The Sushi chef was friendly and did some explaining while we were there. This visit I did not imbibe but they have a nice selection of Sake with flight's available. This place is a cut above the average Japanese Restaurant. It shows in the variety of items in the menu, fresh seasonal items, and outstanding sushi. Worth the effort to go out of your way for, we drive up from Sanford for this.

Great dinner as usual. Only negative point, as well as usual, is the temperature which is kept too low by a wild air conditioning.

Sushi for two was just enough. Dry sake was delicious.

I couldn't say something negative if I tried. Miso soup deeply flavorful; ginger dressing is just right; and the sushi is over the top.
