The food was great. The spring rolls were some of the best of my life - this is an amazing statement considering I ordered delivery. To reiterate, the spring rolls were so perfect with my takeout order, I can't even imagine how wonderful they'd be at the restaurant. However, I ordered the BEEF Red Curry, but only 4 pieces of...

This was the perfect choice after a hot afternoon Tar Heel football game. The choice of delux sushi rolls makes it hard to choose. The average cost is 2 for $15. Our server was very attentive and was quick to refill our glasses of ice water. The restaurant can get noisy but that may have been due to the last... More

The host is what sets the tone for your dining experience in a restaurant, and the hostess that sat us was wearing a baggy sweater and looked unkept. If you want to set a nice mood for a restaurant, you should have your hostess wear a dress or at least slacks and a blouse. Besides that, we came in at... More

My family and I like this place. We come here mostly for lunch. You need to set your expectations right: if you are looking for a top of the class sushi restaurant, then this is not the place for you (not sure there is any such place in chapel hill anyway). If you are looking for a consistently good Asian... More

First time diners at this restaurant, which is part of a the collection of restaurants owned/managed by a local businessman. The hostessing station was covered with hand written signs about what to do with umbrellas, that the bathrooms were for patrons and other unwelcome instructions. We began with the appetizer sampler and realized that all 6 appetizers tasted the same.... More

Spicy Nine has a varied menu full of Asian cuisine. I had a craving for Bulgogi and my daughter had sushi because it is a BOGO. Both were very tasty and presented well. My beef was delicious and tender with onions and peppers under the meat served with Kim Chi and rice off course. She had a spider roll and... More

Our party of three ordered sushi rolls (buy one get one free). The quality was very good and the service was top notch. We had a relaxing dinner and were not rushed. We will return again the next time we are in town.

My girl and I were looking for some good sushi and voila--found it. Great value at BOGO. I live in Utah, but I'm pretty sure she'll be back again.
