Great for sushi in a hurry and very affordable. Great location if you're walking around campus. Sushi is not out of the world but it hits the spot. The staff is helpful. We think it is one of the decent sushi places around here considering the difference in food between the more fancy Sushi places and this one is not that much but the price is.

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.

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'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.
