The entire meal was fantastic. Service was polite, helpful, and quick. I recommend ordering many of the small plates for the table, than adding a larger dish per person or a sushi roll into the mix. We went once and made plans to go back the next day. It's worth the reservation that is almost required by it's popularity.

This place lives up to the hype I encountered every time I mentioned this place. We only worked off of the small plates menu, but everything we order there was phenomenal. You need a reservation. This not a place you can just pop in and pick up a place at the bar. Believe me, I have tried this half a dozen times. But it's worth the extra effort.

Great sushi but pricey. You are paying for the ambiance. Great service. Make a reservation if you want to go on a Friday or Saturday or you will wait. Parking is around the corner. The resturant is located in a alley, near the Durham Hotel.

Every bit worth the reservation and the price. The fish was fresh and flavorful, and I believe that was the best quality salmon I've ever had. Thank you for an amazing birthday meal!

Overall my girlfriend and I were unimpressed with our experience here. Perhaps we had our expectations set to high, but we felt like we could have had a better dining experience for the money elsewhere. The atmosphere is perhaps the best part of this restaurant, the food was well prepared, but lacking any real creativity or impressive flavor profiles... in other words we were left wanting/expecting more with each bite.
The waitstaff were very nice, well trained and very knowledgeable on the menu. Our only complaint was the quality of food for the money.

This is the place you go to in the triangle if you want excellent sushi. I've never been disappointed here. If your enjoy sushi and haven't been here yet, you ought to plan a trip. Don't forget to make a reservation if you don't want a long wait because people in the area know how good it is!

Those dimly-lit underground sushi vibes I'm always craving. M Sushi is the perfect date night or friendship treat-yo-self outing for anytime you want to feel a little more upscale. Always good to make a reservation, and then try out their spider roll or M special roll.

Had a wonderful experience ordering the Grand Omakase. It was 8 generously sized courses spanning a wide range of styles. It took about 1.5 hours to eat, left me perfectly full and not grossly stuffed. It was less food than you could get ordering sushi rolls for the same price, but a much more interesting meal. I thought the hand roll course was fun, since you get to wrap it yourself. I probably won't splurge on it again immediately, but it will stay at option for a future special occasion.

Fantastic flavors in an intimate and fun, casual setting, paired with some wonderful sake... Makes me a happy man! Great attentive service as well. Very busy, so I'm guessing the food keeps bringing everyone back. I know i will definitely be returning! Mango roll had a wonderful blend of slightly sweet with a nice spicy kick.

I may have reviewed this place before, but no harm in another. Consistently great food. Good atmosphere. I'd say it could use a few more tables because it's difficult to get a larger group here, but that would take away from the excellent service. I think I've been here 3 times and each time I've been impressed. It's one of the only places I hate myself afterward due to simply eating too much, I don't know when to quit.

Great atmosphere, awesome sushi, very friendly stuff. I'll definitely will be back. Reservation is recommended because they seem to be always busy.

My wife and I love M Sushi. The service is warm and friendly, and the food is second to none. If you want extraordinary sushi definitely give M Sushi a try!

We had a really great time her. Somehow we managed to get a last minute 7:00 PM reservation on a Friday night. The service was prompt and the waitress was able to easily answer our questions. We crushed the Rainbow Roll, M-Special, Tuna Special, Futomaki, Twisted-Mango, Dumplings, and seaweed salad. Everything was amazing.

Best sushi I've ever had, anywhere, period. So fresh you'd think the ocean is out back. Bold and inventive menu items. Great atmosphere.

This is the best Sushi in town. It might be the best sushi in the southeast. I can't prove that but I'm not going to spend a lot of time trying to disprove it. So here's what you do. Book a reservation at the bar, not a table. You're going to want to see this. Order one of the omakase. These people know better than you. Don't be a hero. Regret ever eating fish anywhere else.

The food is authentic, ingredients are 5 star quality, the staff is friendly, and the atmospheres (especially the bar area) is super good. I am always too lazy to leave reviews, but I do think the food here needs to be acknowledged! I ordered the Grand Omakase, a nine courses set, and I got to say I am so impressed that not only with the taste is delicious but the aesthetic is amazing. Very satisfied experience with M sushi.

Amazing small plates and sushi. You can definitely tell a difference in the quality of ingredients and the expert workmanship put into creating the exquisite dishes they serve here. Would highly recommend for a special occasion!

Best sushi in Durham! Make reservations in advance and you won’t be disappointed. Wait staff is on point. Great wine selection. Excellent fresh sushi. Worth the price. Great date night! We’ll be back!

Been five times. Really well presented and always solid. The best sushi in the triangle if you want actual sushi and not crazy American rolls with sauces like most every other place seems to offer.
