We walked in a bit late on a Sunday night (kind of a jerk move, I know) but were seated and waited on immediately. For the restaurant to be as empty and close to closing as it was, I didn't expect the food quality to be as great as it was. That plus our server, Calvin who was very kind and attentive to our needs make this a wonderful restaurant. The food was fresh, the miso soup was killer (so good!) and the sushi quality was top notch.

Wide range of oriental foods, including sushi. The hot and sour soup was tasty and a good moderate sized starter. The yellow curry was creamy and very tasty served with chicken and brown rice. My vegetarian colleagues had massaman curry and pronounced it delicious. The servers were pleasant and attentive without hovering.

Amazing sushi!! And excellent service. On Tuesdays after 5pm their rolls are not buy one get one, but also half off!

They will provide you some definitely-bad-turned-under-summer-weather, possibly-10-plus-hour-earlier-cooked, literately-smell-like-someone's-feet brown rice to you, and when you ask about that, they will tell you "that's the way rice smells!" Totally nonsense and unacceptable. I will report this to some agency like FDA. No one deserves this rotten rice with disgusting smell and you can't treat people like this.

First time there. Really enjoyed their sake selection. Husband and I each had a delicious sushi roll. And Calvin gave great service. Wonderful all around.

Really enjoyed my meal. Sushi was good and their selection of Thai food was solid as well. The Thai tea was great as well. I will return.

I enjoy Sake Bomb and have been for more than 5 years. Everything I have tried on the menu I have been pleased with. The sushi is great also!!! They do the buy one get one free on sushi rolls also.

Sticky floor, awful food, and no opportunity to ask for something else: My curry was insanely sugary. Not the hint of sweetness you might expect in a "sweet and spicy" entree. No joking, it tasted like melted coconut ice cream with some chili in it. I've had Penang curry in multiple restaurants and it's never been anywhere near that sweet. The chicken was overcooked and tough and the green beans were... not fresh. The floor around our table was sticky, as though someone had spilled a bowl of honey on it. it was so sticky I could hear the sound of my shoes sticking and coming unstuck with every step, even over the noise of a Saturday night crowd. Responding to the owner's "response" to my review: I would've asked for a replacement dish, but the server didn't come back until my friend was done eating and I didn't want to make her wait. I told him that I was disappointed and couldn't eat the meal, and I just got a "too bad. You should've gotten the yellow curry."

The sushi here is "the bomb", no joke. Everything tasted fresh, and the sake selection is overwhelming. Wait staff is very friendly and accommodating. We had a humongous sampling of sushi rolls on a weekday night, and it came out very quickly. It is the best tasting sushi I've had in Durham or Cary, hands down!

Wesley Fitzgerald Ford, our server last night, made the experience worth coming back for. The food was as expected but the service was phenomenal. We were well attended to... his recommendations were spot on... he was full of wit, charm, and creativity. I would come back just to sit in his section and have that experience again. 10/10 we want Wesley again.

I love this place! Great sushi, hibachi, and drinks(hot sake especially). The service is always extra friendly and the establishment is never dirty. One of my favorite places to go

We go here all of the time and I always recommend it to my friends. The staff are so friendly and the food is great! My favorites are shrimp massaman curry and angry dragon rolls. You can't beat their buy 1 get 1 sushi!
