"Waraji is always a wonderful experience. It is one of my favorites in Raleigh, and after my daughter took me to dinner for my birthday, it is one of her favorites too!
The food is always fresh and authentic. I try something new every time and it never disappoints. If you are looking for a truly genuine Japanese menu, you should definitely find Waraji!

"If you want excellent sushi, this is a must. The pieces were huge, three times as big as the average sushi house. The soup was delicious. Excellent beer and wine choice. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I cant remember the exact name, maybe the crazy jerry roll was three rolls in one and fabulous. Everything was great. My new favorite sushi place in the Raleigh area. We all loved it."

"As most Japanese restaurants in the area, Waraji is OK, but not great. The only restaurant in Raleigh that is better than average that I have found for sushi/sashimi is Cowfish."

"Made a reservation for 1pm and arrived 10 minutes before. Waited at the Hostess stand until 1:15 and never even had anyone make eye contact with us. Finally stepped in front of one the many wait staff running around us and told them that we have a 1pm reservation. He pointed to table and told us to go over there. We sat down and waited another 15 minutes and no one every came to the table. Worst service that I have ever had in a restauant. Have told many friends of the experience now. Such a shame, I am sure that the food would have been good. Guess that they didnt need the revenue from 6 people that love sushi and were very excited."

"The wait staff while efficient was NOT up to the mandatory Gratuity charged. There would be only an 8-10% tip on the service that was offered. There was NO recommendations, they was NO let me see if the chef can do a Yakasoba dish, our group wanted. Our first visit (afternoon) we had many suggestions, and her suggestions were mentioned to the evening staff, and it was Oh yea that is good."
