I have been eating at M Sushi for years and it is always a amazing! The food is delicious, the nigiri is the most fresh in the Durham and Raleigh area, and the location is great. The Lobster Shabu Shabu is a delicious starter, as well as the hamachi Kama (so yumm), and the table smoked black cod. We always get the omakase so that we can enjoy a little of everything, and we are never disappointed!

Hard to get reservation at M. Book 2+ weeks in advance! Sushi is some of the best in the area, especially the tuna+octopus on crispy rice appetizer. The environment is dimly lit and great for date night. I don’t recommend bringing children here.

Didn't know Durham had nice spot for sushi!
The spot can be a bit difficult to find, since there is no signage on the front. Ambiance is dark with low ceilings.
We were a group of 5. We had a reservation, so we were sat immediately. It is hard to sit a group of 5 here...ended up just adding a chair to the end.
We ordered a Lite Omakase per person. We added a few extra rolls to share too. Fish was fresh and tasty.
Staff was friendly and attentive.
Limited parking in the adjacent lot. May need to park a block or two away.
Definitely come here for some good sushi!

After finally coming to M Sushi I realized why it can be so difficult to get a reservation here and I can say.... it's worth the planning and wait! Food was mind blowing and the quality of the fish was top tier. It's a cozy place like many of the other M family restaurants that is perfect for date nights or special occasions.
Highly recommend one of the omakase menus - let them take care of you, you won't regret it. One of my top spots in Durham.

Our waitress was incredible. She gave solid recommendations and was full of vibrant energy. M Sushi always delivers great food. Thanks for an incredible experience!

The food was delicious, probably the best sushi you’ll get in the Triangle and the high prices definitely reflect that. The waiters were knowledgeable about the food/drinks which is a plus if you have dietary needs. It’s a small space so it can get crowded, I would opt for a table rather than the bar area.

The Nigiri Omekase was great, most fish choices were excellent with only 2/15 that weren't really for my pallet and some very good stand outs like the seared salmon belly. The wasabi in the Nigiri was a little strong for my wife, but I appreciated the traditional bit under each piece.
Sake recommendations were well thought out and service was friendly and attentive.
The tuna on crispy rice was very tasty but the fish did take a bit of a back seat there but it has some pretty wide appeal that way I'd imagine.
Deserts were good, yuzu semifredo was great, and the chocolate mouse cake was I'd say fairly standard.

M Sushi is an incredible restaurant, perfect for any date night or celebration. While on the pricier side, you can expect to have the an incredible sushi experience. I typically order the nigiri omakase which is phenomenal. If seated at the bar, the chef will present the nigiri in rounds, whereas at a table it typically all comes out at once. I've also had their hand rolls and chirashi bowl which I highly recommend. While their sushi is incredible, their appetizers are equally impressive. The smoked cod is buttery and perfectly balanced. The tuna appetizer is creative. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The only downfall of their menu is their cocktails -- not a highlight of this restaurant, but they more than compensate for it with the food.

This restaurant is considered the best sushi in Durham! I ordered the Nigiri omakase set menu at 65 per person. Sushi is good but on the pricier end. The restaurant is always busy, so I’d be sure to make a reservation ahead of time!

Went to here right after my proposal and was given complementary champagne. The Uni was silky and rich. Salmon roe is always a must. I just love going to all the m restaurants the quality of service is unmatched which is why I will always be back!

Excellent sushi! Omakase is amazing, you get a lot of food, and the experience is 10/10. This will definitely become a new staple for me in Durham

Just as good as their Cary location! They have a really nice upscale dining experience. The freshest sushi around. They have a limited roll selection so they can focus on quality, and they definitely deliver. I had the otoro and seared salmon nigiri which were exceptional. I had the seared salmon roll and it was jam packed with flavor. So much going on in the roll and it all paired so nicely. Side note: they have Fever Tree Ginger Beer, which is just about the best you can get, in my opinion; so crisp. Highly recommend for any sushi lover

M Sushi is a popular spot. Nice grungy but sophisticated and clean restaurant. Reservations for the bar are available if you can watch the sushi chefs, but the tables are nicer and more roomie and private. Bathrooms are also clean. The staff are polite, knowledgeable, respectful, and timely. The sushi was ok. We got the M special, the Futomaki, and Rainbow. The fish and ingredients were fresh, presentation clean, but instead of spicy, every roll was excessively sweet for me, even the ones that I don't believe were supposed to be. The fresh hot soybeans were awesome with large salt grains. Wouldn't come back for the price, but worth a try.

Best sushi experience EVER!!! Everything was fresh and tasted wonderful. The bluefin tuna, the M Special, Futomaki, and Twisted Mango were awesome. The dumplings were superb.

My boyfriend and I came in for dinner tonight for his birthday. I like sushi but have only really had spicy tuna roles and was a bit intimidated by the menu. Dyuna our waitress was AMAZING. She suggested things for me to try and everything was super delicious. The crispy rice appetizer was out of this world and we will definitely be back soon!

Stumbled upon M Sushi. We got there at 4:40pm and there was a line so we knew it must be good. Luckily we were able to grab a seat, but had a time limit since we didn't have a reservation. That was ok with us since we were short on time. The food was amazing. We tried quite a few things and everything was absolutely wonderful.
