First Take: Mama Jee Delivers Sushi and Thai for W. Raleigh and NC State
Mama Jee in Raleigh – NC Triangle DiningHillsborough Street in Raleigh is one of the busier streets in the area but given its proximity to a college, it’s food offerings are usually somewhat mixed. You get the usual burgers, pizza, subs and Chinese food here but it’s usually a case of quantity over quality. But over the years, it’s had its fair share of decent restaurants. Good dining options include H Street Kitchen, Gonza Tacos y Tequila and now the new Mama Jee. Billed as a Thai and Sushi Bar, Mama Jee sits on the intersection of Hillsborough and Dixie Trail Road in an area rife with construction. But I decided to drop in for lunch and see what this new restaurant was bringing to the neighborhood!

Super modern, clean and impressive design all around their interior, where do you start? From the lovely polished wood bar complete with leather high-top
