Spicy 9 Restaurant: Chapel Hill's Finest Sushi & Asian Cuisine

Spicy 9 Restaurant (at 140 West Franklin Street) gives you the feeling of walking into an authentic restaurant in Asia!  The atmosphere is light and engaging, and the wait staff is cheerful, polite and attentive.  Then there is the delicious menu!

The choices are amazing and range from light fare to great meals.  One favorite appetizer is takoyaki, a well-known dish of fried and battered octopus topped with chili powder and spicy mayo.

The menu is surprisingly large and available at both lunch and dinner.  It starts with appetizers and salads, and ends with desserts.  There are daily drink specials as well.   There is even a section devoted to ramen noodles.

Sushi and sashimi choices are plentiful, and the favorites might be the sushi rolls with names like Franklin Street Fire and I Believe I Can Fly.  With the rolls, each order comes with another of lesser value!

Spicy 9 is very popular, especially on the weekends. Call ahead for reservation:
