ru san's

boy, do i have a lot to catch up on! so many places i've eaten at, so little time to review! i'll try to write at least 1 review per day. well here goes...

apparently this restaurant has about 8-9 locations around georgia area (?). correct me if i'm wrong. the only location i've gone to a few times is "the tower place", which is located in buckhead. it's right down the street from lenox mall. the price ranges for their food is not even "upper scale" prices for a restaurant in the buckhead area. it's actually cheap compared to its neighbor restaurants. the interior decors are kinda modernized. the music is definitely not japanese at all! they play r&b, hip hop, and pop. moving on to the food. lemme give you a fair warning tho. whatever you order that day....will never be the same. the food here is very inconsistent. i'm not sure if its due to the variety of chefs? also, their ratings are 2 out of 5 stars anyways. 3 stars in certain areas. but anyways...bryant & i love yakiudon (jap stir-fried noodles). the very 1st time we went to ru san's..we ordered exactly that. we had gone with a big group so we kinda ordered lots of dishes just to share with the table. out of the diff. fried rices we ordered, appetizers, & such...we still favored the yakiudon the most. so many months pass by & we decided to go back for more. IT TASTED TOTALLY DIFFERENT! not even close to similar either!

here are the pics &; my ratings (5 star scale - 5 being the highest, 3 being average):
spicy yakiudon (it wasn't spicy at all!) also, you can choose your meat
due to the inconsistancy, 4 stars for the the times they really did try
assorted nigiri &; california roll    ★★★
cucumber salad &; seaweed salad    ★★
was kinda salty =/
rice ball ★★★
can't rmb'er what sauce they poured on top, but it was decent
seafood fried rice
not dry like other restaurants, but yet still lacked some flavor
chicken fried rice
same as the fried rice above, the chicken was nothing special
tiger beef   ★★★
i've had better, but points for the beef.

was medium rare so it came out soft, also the ponzu sauce might be a bit strong
eel roll; &; (?) can't rmb'er...sorry :(   ★★★
typical..the unagi sauce is just what makes it good
scallop roll   ★
scallops are raw, the scallop is about a dime size;

also, it just tastes awful!
spider roll; &; (?)    ★
not even close to decent tempura
nigiri platter - eel, tuna, salmon, california roll (clockwise)
typical sushi, wouldn't say it's the freshest seafood
p.s. good quality sashimi pieces are s'posed to melt in your mouth~
teriyaki beef [did not eat - no rating]
katsu pork [did not eat - no rating]
