Having fun and making people feel at home is the intent of Sushi 101 Noodle and Sushi Bar. Sushi 101 owner Hank Lim opened Sushi 101 , Says Lim, "I had been thinking about opening this concept in Charlotte for four years. I used to come up to Charlotte from Atlanta to visit friends in Pineville. Charlotte has the pace for this type of restaurant while Atlanta is too big and there is already too much competition."Lim moved to Charlotte in order to order Sushi 101, but he is not a stranger to the world of restaurants. He grew up in his parents' Chinese restaurant in Atlanta. After the family sold that restaurant seven years ago, Lim worked in other Atlanta area restaurants learning the front of the house at Bones and Checkers Bar and Grill. He then worked as a sushi chef in an Atlanta area Japanese restaurant for six years. Lim designed the 80-seat Sushi 101 with fun in mind. The long narrow space is dominated by a long, 30-seat sushi bar. Seafood abounds in this unique dining experience.

SUSHI 101- Your Guide To a Pleasant - Affordable Dining

So your friend failed to convince you that sushi was the most delicious thing in the world. But at the same time, you don't want to be out of the loop and would like to broaden your cosmopolitan sense of enlightenment (if that makes any sense). Here are some tips for you, sushi virgins, on how to approach this ambrosia from the Orient.

Somehow you were tricked, bribed, or coerced into going to Sushi 101 and ended up sitting at a table. You can start easing your nerves with a comfort appetizer such as Vegetable or Shrimp Tempura and wash down with a calming bowl of Miso Soup.

After this, I know you are tempted to go directly for the Teriyaki dishes, but today will be different. When it comes to sushi, let’s start off with the basics: California Roll. Almost everyone can enjoy crabmeat, cucumber, and avocado wrapped in nori and rice, but if you are vegetarian, the Avocado, Plants, or the Cucumber Roll seem to be the logical choices.

Sushi 101 is my favorite sushi place after one restaurant which is way more expensive.
The sushi here is delicious, and the list of rolls is really long. I have been going here for about 4 years now and I can say that I have been satisfied everytime I went.
