Haru Sushi Open in Glenwood Village

I dropped by the new Haru Sushi in Glenwood Village yesterday for a little — OK, a lot — of take-out sushi, and I’m very pleased to have this new place in my neighborhood. Haru is owned by sushi chef Fang Yongxing, and he’s obviously committed to bringing a high-end selection of fish to his clientele, featuring several types of “fatty” toro selections, including tuna, salmon and yellowtail. Haru Sushi has a number of creative rolls, too, and frankly, this was some of the freshest, best tasting fish we’ve had in the area. Plus, the ginger they serve with their sushi is fantastic: fresh, with amazingly clean flavor. This stuff is white and slightly more pungent than most of the overly sweet pink and yellow ginger served at most places these days. The restaurant is very small, with much of the room taken up by the sushi bar (featuring some gorgeous granite countertops), so Haru is a great alternative to the hustle and bustle of some of the larger places in Raleigh.

Haru only has two sushi chefs, so if you’re in a hurry, this may not be the place for you. But if you want a quiet evening with the freshest fish in town, head to Haru Sushi.

    Varmint, glad to see this post. We love this place. Great fresh sushi, great ginger. I love that it is small and has booths (great for kid containment).

  3. The take-out was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the riceless cucumber-style maki rolls as well as the Cracked Pepper sashimi. Also they have some really nice unfiltered sake there.

    Even on the bad day, Waraji still the BEST in NC. I am from SoCal and have been eating sushi for 20 years. Not only it is way too expensive, but taste is like regular sushi you purchase in the groceries stores. You can go try, but you will regret it. It is not as crowded, but man…..not good. We will never go back again.
