“Really good for the price....but without the price...”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Kurama's seems really good for college students. Entirely affordable sushi. That's a good thing. But for those of us with a bit larger wallet and more discerning taste, it's just all right. I go there with my kid who really likes it.

“Just OK”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

Nothing special. Avoid.
Seems to be run by UNC students. They don't really even have a sushi chef, just some student making sushi.

“I love this little place!”
Reviewed 1 December 2010

I've enjoyed many meals here with my daughter during her 4 years at UNC-Chapel Hill; I'm sad these days will end when she graduates in the spring. Kurama is a great little college town eatery, very casual, and always full of college students chatting and enjoying sushi, rice bowls, and yummy green tea ice cream, etc. Everything on their menu I've tried is very good, and also inexpensive; perfect for college students and those of us who enjoy sushi, but hate to pay out the nose at fancier, upscale establishments. The sushi chefs know their stuff and the sushi is always fresh. The restaurant also has a number of yummy authentic menu items found in Japan, but rarely found in Japanese restaurants in the U.S.
This little place beats about every Japanese/sushi place we've tried in and around Charlotte, NC.....sure wish it was closer to home.
