The sushi chef presides over this restaurant - he's from Japan, and his English is very good, but he's not a talker. He's paying attention to the sushi. All of the usual items, plus the usual Japanese other items - bento box, but they don't call it that. A number of noodle and soup dishes. The wait staff is very... More

When you step into the Sushi Tsune, you feel like being in Japan. There is a tatami room, too! I went there with my family for dinner. We had made a reservation by phone a day before, but there was no record. However, we went early, around 5:30 pm, so it wasn't a problem. (After 6:30 pm, the restaurant was... More

My nephew recommended this restaurant saying "it's the best in town". He was so right. We had the lunch special. I enjoyed the Avacoda roll and tuna roll. Both were very fresh and delicious. He had the Salmon roll and shrimp roll. For the price and quality this can't be beat! I'll definitely be back.

If you are expecting Americanized Japanese food here, forget it. Having been to Japan several times, the food is authentic and FRESH. I always judge a place by it's tako (octopus) and Sushi Tsune (translate - Always Sushi) has the best in the area. Simple, straight forward Japanese food. Cold soba noodles for summer were also the best I have... More

Can you believe that one of the waitress traced after me to parking lot and ask me for more tips!!!! She provided an average service but ask me for paying 20% tips for my lunch. I of course refused her request. And she hold on my car and verbally abused me.

This place isn't fancy, but IT IS GOOD! It is certainly worth the time and the prices are wonderful too. The 700 roll and the NC State roll are both delicious. Close to NCSU and PNC arena. Great for a pre game or pre concert meal.

Our family visits Sushi Tsune pretty frequently considering we live 20+ miles away; we probably go every other month. It is our favorite for always fresh sushi, delicious Bento boxes and the remarkable Udon Nakatori soup, served in a volcanically hot clay pot. And although the food never disappoints, the best thing about Sushi Tsune is the warm, welcoming staff.... More

I have been to Sushi Tsune many times over the last 15 years. Having been to Japan several times, it is the most authentic Japanese food restaurant in Raleigh. The quality of the seafood is excellent, and I particularly like the sashimi. If you want a real taste of authentic Japan, try this little place. Fresh is the key to... More
