I almost don't want to post this since Haru is small but the sushi is so good and the people are so nice, they deserve the praise.

Haru is the sort of super fresh, almost silky sushi we haven't had since we came to NC from California 20 years ago. We found at least 5 different kinds of tuna, imagine that, including maguro, toro, white tuna, spicy tuna, tuna tataki and bonita. Salmon is fatty and flavorful Norwegian Salmon, and I even saw fresh Spanish Mackeral the other day. Tomago has always been fresh. Quality of everything has been first rate. You have to ask if you want wasabi on your sushi, but they'll gladly do it.

Sushi master is proud of his rolls and the one he made with shrimp tempura looked wonderful but we are purists and prefer our sushi straight, or sashimi or even chirashi which isn't served traditionally in a large bowl atop sushi rice but was more like sushi with rice along side.

I am delighted we found Haru. Address is 2603 Glelnwood in Glenwod Village. And I hope we can still get a seat at the sushi bar next time we go.
