Great customer service and the best food in town! The service seems to be over and beyond every time we visit An's Cuisine. The food melts in your mouth and you will want more! Thanks a wonderful experience to all the staff
best buffet I've ever had
they should do it more often; not just mothers day
We celebrated our 26th anniversary here. Service is always far superior to anywhere in Raleigh. We were slightly disappointed in both the change in dressing for the Asian Salad and in the Thai Wings, which were overdone. The bar is always a pleasure and the wine list is extensive.

Delicious food and exceptional service. The cookies are a MUST!
We love to dine at "an" as it is always great! Joe was once again our waiter and love him to pieces! He remembered our daughter in laws name and she has only been there on one other occasion... he recommended two dished that I had and wonderful decision. Can't wait to go again. Thanks for the great evening.
Not what it used to be...
First time here in a couple of years and boy have things slipped. From unique and flavorful dishes to bland fish just a step or two above what you'd expect at Applebees. Presentation was spectacular and service was expert, but the current cuisine is far from inspired. For the prices you pay it needs to be a unique and memorable experience. Instead one just leaves feeling like what could have been. They were only 10 days into their new spring menu, so *maybe* they get a pass on that... The "opentable" online booking wouldn't allow bookings at anything but 5 or 7:30, so we chose 5. The place was literally empty until 6:30, only us, so I'm really annoyed that they didn't allow booking at 5:30 or 6, obviously they need to hold some seats, but *all*? I guess this former gem is not long for this world, maybe that's inevitable with places like these.

Solid as always! Get the SAS roll ...
So, to preface, I am a frequent guest at AN. However, there are times when things go above and beyond any expectations. Our last visit was one of those times. Say what you want about the pricing, the portion size, the value, etc. For my tastes and my budget, these are a non issue. I continue to return to this excellent place because of the incredible staff. Half of a restaurant visit is the staff and the level of service and at AN, their staff makes it a world class experience. Thank you again to the lovely Jessica who takes pride and joy in remembering the regulars and makes sure that you feel as if you are welcomed into her home. Laura, the resident wine expert created a fun and interesting experience when it came to our wine. We especially loved the guessing games. Alisson, one of our excellent servers was always on hand for anything that we needed. Of course, special thanks to our Chef de Cuisine, Josh Hughes, for creating such a special menu for us. Lastly, of course, I want to thank Brandon for putting this all together. Brandon is one of the longest tenured staff at AN and over the years has always ensured that the overall experience is top notch. Through all f our visits, he has remembered our preferences and tastes which makes it such an easy and relaxed dining experience. This great team of professionals are why we continue to return time and time again. Thank you AN for making us feel so special.

Best sushi coming from a former new yorker
Amazing service and incredible food!
Everyone is so kind and treats you well. Food is fantastic and atmosphere is nice. If one or two guests I recommend sitting at the sushi bar. Sushi is great, waiter's wine pair suggestion was on point. Snapper was delicious. 5-Stars all around!
It's amazing to me how they take the scraps of meat, that most people wouldn't eat, make a fancy sauce to go on it and then sell it like its a delicacy! Since when did a pork skin & fatback become a delicacy???????
Every aspect of the dinner were beyond expectations. The quality of food and service was exceptional. In addition they overheard us speaking of an anniversary and gave us free dessert without our prompting. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Very special meal
We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, reservations are highly recommended. Very pretty restaurant, modern and classy. He ordered the Rainbow Roll sushi, and I ordered the Vegetable Mango sushi roll. Both were delicious, his with large, fresh pieces of seafood. I then ordered the Chicken & Waffles (wrapped in bacon!), which was very tasty. He ordered the Ahi Tuna, a gorgeous cut of meat, very generous portion. They brought fresh cookies at the end for his birthday, also very good. Would definitely go back for another special occasion.
Had a great time, food is consistently great, the two of enjoyed ourselves very much. Seafood is always fresh and delicious. It is always difficult to decide what to order!
What a wonderful find!
Wonderful food, every mouthful a new taste sensation. Some of the best food we have ever experienced - every dish exceeded expectations. Service was unobtrusive, yet attentive, picking up that we were both going to share everything, and delivering the food split into individual portions without needing to even ask for extra plates. Highly recommended to foodies and everyone else. Delicious!
I was excited about the dining experience at an, as this was my first time at the restaurant, but was underwhelmed. The restaurant is beautiful, great ambiance and service, but the food left much to be desired. The sushi was excellent, but we also ordered the Thai Wings and Chicken and Waffles and felt the flavors were very bland. The presentation was impressive, but the flavors uninspiring.
We had two servers yet it took 30 minutes to take a drink order and over an hour to place our food order, and we had to flag down a waitress to get that in.. It wasn't even busy. The food was good, but I do not plan to go back because the service was so weak, and there are too many other places with comparable sushi with better service.
my favorite restaurant.
the only thing better than the food is the service
Impressed the BF
How wonderful to find such an unusual menu - foie gras was absolutely to die for. I couldn't get enough of the Uni. Was my third visit, my boyfriend's first. Really Wow-ed him! Coming back soon!

The An Ramen, and Garlic Thai Prawns were delicious and the cookies for dessert were amazing as well!
I remember better from this restaurant
It's been a while since we have been to An. Beautiful restaurant, pleasant staff, but not outstanding. The coconut parsnip soup was fabulous, but also the highlight of our meal. The 2 sushi rolls we ordered were nice, but did not stand out at all compared to any other Asian restaurant. Past visits to An had been a unique experience, innovative dishes, this not so much. An seems to have gone too far on the minimalist approach and the food is suffering- the dish that was supposed to have 5 elements, including a duck spring roll were so tiny you could not taste anything but pastry, one of the other elements was covered in what tasted like soggy frozen puff pastry. Here's hoping An returns to its former glory.
Taste can't make up for small servings
I ate at An for a special occasion with my fiancé. While our service was substandard, the food itself was delicious. Unfortunately, the price of the food and the small portions overshadowed the taste of the food. We order 3 sushi rolls to split at $15+ per roll and were disappointed to see how little sushi $50 got us. Ambiance was nice even in a small two person table along the wall.

An is always a top meal! Ask for Brandon, who is an exceptional waiter, and always has great suggestions for any diners taste. Warm cookies at the end of the meal is a must.
Phenomal Lunch thanks to our server, Brandon Kelly
My wife and I have been visiting An for quite some time. We always have some high expectations of our visits to AN, and to date, there has yet to be any negative experience. Our visit for lunch on Friday 04 March was by far our best and most enjoyable experience to date. Our server, Brandon, has taken care of us before, but this trip he truly outdid himself. We left our lunch choices in his hands and let him guide us through an impeccable and unforgettable menu, as well as wonderful wine pairings. It was truly impressive that he has been able to remember, and incorporate all of our specific tastes and preferences. All of our seafood dishes were perfect and left us eagerly awaiting the next bit of goodness to come. Our meal included fresh shucked oysters, extremely fresh and tasty sashimi, wonderful flounder, some out of this world Pad Thai noodles, and of course, some decadent desserts. Per usual, the atmosphere was cozy and romantic, even during the mad lunch rushes. My wife and I like to linger and dine, which is often not the preferred M.O during busy lunches, however, at no time did we feel rushed or uncomfortable. In fact, we were continuously reassured and encouraged to take as much time as we wanted. While An is certainly not the cheapest place, the ambiance, the food, and of course, most importantly, the service of Brandon and the rest of the staff make every penny worth it. My wife and I will certainly return again, and of course, will request Brandon as our host each and every time. He is a true professional and represents An with integrity and dedication. The food continues to shine and really showcases the Asian Fusion talents of the cooking staff. Don't forget to order the chocolate macadamia nut cookies before you leave!!
The food was exceptional, the service was consistently better than good, and the environment was a breath of fresh air.
Great fusion food
Came here on my own got terrific service. Wines by the glass are decent. Really loved the food delicate but flavorful. Poker with the bloood orange glaze was delicious and not cloying. Parsnip soup with lobster was simply delicious
Top 10 in the World

An is always a sure thing, whether it is for a special occasion dinner or for a business dinner. The staff is impeccably trained and the flavors intense. You won't get 5lbs. of food on your plate, but you will get a plate of just enough.
First rate responsive service and sushi to die for
I advised An in the form of assistant manager, Michael Golder, that we were else rating my wife's birthday, that she loved sushi, and that she recently discovered that she needed to eat gluten free. Mr. Golder could not have been more gracious and responsive, advising those options of sushi that were gluten free and those that could be modified to comply. When we arrived the waiter, Joe, was aware of the situation and told us he had been informed and had already perused the menu for items he could suggest. WOW. In addition to all this, the food and the service were impeccable. Best sushi in the area by far. Go if you are in doubt.
Corporate Dinner Event
Food and Service were excellent. Noise level left much to be desired. A table of 8 could not hear each other due to the noise level of other diners.
Phenomenal dining experience
Wait staff friendly and professional ; food presentation and taste incredible; ambiance relaxing and pleasant; a definite repeatable experience... again and again and again.
Service is usally better!
I have been to AN many times before and the food and service is usually very good. I have been to AN with a very large party and the service was much better, they gave me a cracked tea cup or my tea! They were not busy at all, because of the ice storm there where a lot of cancelation, you would think the service would be better because they had very few people dinning this night. food took along time, to come, didn't give us, plates for appetizers until we asked for them. The Pork & Buns was very good!
Amazing, decedent food. Worth every penny.
Amazing atmosphere and food. From presentation to taste, everything was spot on. Did the 5 course chef tasting for valentine's day and had an amazing time. The service was exceptional and the employees were extremely knowledgeable about each dish the chef prepared. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to have a world class meal.
Great place to eat, although a bit pricey.
The food here was tasty. Service was good. The only complaint I have is that if you are coming here for just sushi, there are other sushi places in the area which taste just as good but are significantly cheaper.
