This is a sushi bar near the UNC campus, so the prices are reasonable, the food is great, and the atmosphere is very laid back.

Sit at the conveyor belt and grab California rolls as they're set down. We go here for a quick and fulfilling sushi fix. It's not fancy or foodie, but it is inexpensive and satisfying. Good spot for kids. Nice walkable location just off Franklin Street.

Having a beautiful spring day, we decided to walk to Chapel Hill from Carrboro to find a place for lunch. Armed with a map of restaurants, we looked around and decided on a new place--for us--Kurama. My husband chose a sort of stew with rice, and I had Udon noodles in broth with Chicken Curry on top. The portions were ample--in fact, I might better have gotten the smaller size. I had never had Udon noodles before, so that was interesting. The sushi dishes travel around an area in the middle on a conveyor belt. Another time we might drive there, and save the wear and tear on old feet and knees!

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.
