We eat a lot of sushi and Thai food. We had been told Sake Bomb was not to be missed. We were very disappointed. Compared to Vine or to Thai Cafe, the food tasted like it was made with much poorer quality ingredients. The edamame tasted old and had very little flavor.

Ordered the beef tataki, it was too chewy and not sliced perfectly. I enjoyed the mackerel and the white tuna was pleasantly good, melted in my mouth....... I would try this place again.

Ok when's the last time you had a wonton that was so fresh tasting that you actually tasted wonton crispy and no taste oil taste. They were outstanding. The sushi is reasonably priced and the sushi chefs are very talented. We enjoyed six rolls and walked out stuffed. We will be back next time in Durham.

Because of its good reviews I really wanted to try this place, unfortunately it did not meet my expectations!!! I'm guessing people like their buy one get one free "special" everyday, all the time and that's probably why they give those reviews. Sushi is not for everyone, it's supposed to be an art, a delicacy...when it's fresh and simple it... More

This has been our go to spot for sushi on date nights for the past 3 years. Always fresh and well made, cocktails are good as well. Fast service, never crowded like some other nearby sushi spots and you get either bogo or 50% off all rolls anytime any day (can't remember which it is but it's good value for... More

We eat here a lot when we visit our son at school. He always gets sushi, we usually get hibachi or other dish. The sushi menu is extensive and delicious.
