We ordered Super Protein Bomb, and Tempura Dinner (Shrimp, Tilapia, Crabstick and Mixed Veggies) - we loved our choices. Nikki, our server was very attentive.

My boyfriend and I frequent Ru San's because of their amazing Udon, and their usually prompt and nice staff. I have never eaten the sushi, as I don't like sushi, but my boyfriend seems to enjoy it quite a bit. Their sweet potato tempura is...More

Having not had Sushi for a while the Buffet advertising on the window intrigued me. These were different items, but the Sushi quality was typical of All You Can Eat restaurants. In the end I was disappointed as I remembered what really good Sushi is...More

I enjoyed a very nice cocktail, California roll, and calamari. Everything was delicious. Everyone at our table cleared their plates. The service was wonderful as well. I hear the lunch special is amazing. I will be back!

Everything on the table was subpar. Service was marginal. Just don't subject yourself...sashimi pieces had extremely strange taste and texture and appetizer of chicken on a stick was burnt and basically had been sitting for a while... it's too bad, used to be decent.
