Charlotte’s Best Sushi 2014

Recently, we hopped over to Park Road to have sushi at Ru Sans. Ru Sans was recently named Charlotte’s best sushi by Creative Loafing. It was buzzing with couples and even families when we arrived and the bar was almost packed.

While I’m not usually big on strip mall restaurants, Ru Sans is delicious and the experience is fabulous (I love anywhere with good + quick service!).

We started with spicy edamame, figuring the twist on the traditional appetizer would be exciting. It was good but nothing mind-blowing. Regular edamame would have been fine.

We decided to split three rolls (our usual amount) and selected a mix of salmon, shrimp and spicy tuna roles, including the Tuna Bomb. IMG_5938

We were both astonished at how quickly the sushi came out to the table. The rolls were slightly larger than most rolls I’ve encountered. That being said, they were packed full of avocado and cucumber and shrimp/fish. The flavor was delicious.

I did love that they had several local beers on tap and a variety of wine and sake options – all for relatively cheap. Our entire meal was around $40.

I’m not sure I would classify it as the best sushi I’ve had, but it’s good. Especially if you’re looking for a quick meal and a no-fuss place. If you’re going for a fancier date night, I would consider Nikko over Ru Sans. Either way, it’s definitely worth checking out.
