Wow. You need to try Sushi Guru! We have attempted to go here many times. Weather or miscommunication with friends had stopped us 3-4 times. After finally making it last night I was very happy we finally had. Calamari, fried tofu and squid salad were all excellent! "D" Commonwealth roll with the flamed Tuna is my new official favorite sushi role ever. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. The service was also fantastic. Very attentive, polite and all around seemed to really enjoy his job. I really wish I could remember his name for a shout out! Younger Male with a goatee. Thank you for a great first experience. We will certainly be returning!
The food here was very good. Some of the best sushi and cocktails in charlotte. Ordered the smoked squid salad and that was very delicious. The sushi was great and it came out on fire which was cool. Service was a bit slow. The kitchen looks to be tiny and we were a party of 15. They kept coming out and asking whether everyone had received their appetizers... their staff should be keeping track of what has come out, not us. Couple of people didnt get their appetizers. I definitely recommend the food here and may check out their south park location next time.
Our waitress was very charming and polite. We got the nigiri platter which was phenomenal. The pieces were very generous. Delicious cuts of meat presented very well. I will be back to explore more of the menu for sure!
The food here is very good and also reasonably priced!! Also the drinks are very good and also well priced. However the service was not so good. We had the bartender for the entire restaurant waiting on us and he wasn't super helpful because he was busy most of the night. Also the seating is kind of awkward inside. We we're jammed into a walkway that people were going back and forth through all night. All in all if you don't mind bad service and mistakes with your order for the good food then come here. Otherwise stay away.
I recently dined at the new Plaza Midwood location for my girlfriend's birthday dinner. The cocktails are delicious and unique, and you definitely get your money's worth. The sushi is very good, and I would put Sushi Guru at the top of my list for best sushi in Charlotte. Our server was very knowledgeable and patient, and she made us feel very welcome. We dined on the first floor patio, and we had a good time enjoying our drinks and watching cars and people pass the restaurant. Parking is very accommodating with a complementary valet. We will definitely be returning!
