The Sushi Review:
18 Asian and Sushi Bar
9935 Rea Rd Charlotte, NC 28277
The location of this sushi spot is ideal for those living in or around South
Charlotte. Located at 9935 Rea Rd. near the Blakeney area, it is in the
perfect place for an early dinner or an after-shopping unwind. The décor
is very attractive and the staff is friendly. My main divochka and I sat at
the bar because it looked very inviting and cozy in a display of
contemporary style. It is also typically the best way to get faster
service for 1 to 3 people and ask any questions about the menu to get
an immediate answer.
We ordered several different varieties of
Maki rolls, including the infamous "Soundboy Roll" (ask for the Philly
roll - tempura) and they were all above average. The tempura was done in
the crispy-crumble style as opposed to the overly-rich batter fried
style, which is healthier I'm sure. The negative reviews that I read
about their sushi prior to my visit were about the rice being "mushy".
These were from people who were probably used to dried-out rolls or
pieces with under-cooked rice. However, that is how some people actually
enjoy their sushi and I say to each his/her own. Much of the material we
(especially as writers) share about our experiences is subjective.
Opinions will of course vary from one individual to the next, so it's
best to identify with the author as much as possible.
selection was good and the house Sake was great - when it was hot, so
don't fool around and let it cool off too much. The big can of Sapporo
can split 2 ways and chases the Sake with ease. My recommendations are
the "Green Monster Roll" if you are an avocado fan, or play it safe with
the spider roll and the shrimp tempura. Overall the sushi was good and
the atmosphere was very inviting. The ambient music was not bad, but a
great soundtrack could really turn this spot into a "must try". The
prices are slightly above average compared to some other places in the
area but that is a reflection of the area itself. Compared to Uptown,
Midtown or SouthPark however, the prices are very reasonable. Overall, I
