Meet Chef Wol Kim and Chef Matt Lowery

Mura has been winning awards for its food for almost a decade. Our North Raleigh sushi and Japanese restaurant was recently given the “Best Sushi” MetroBrave Award by Metro Magazine, as well as the “Best Take-Out Food” and “Best Place to Impress a Date” Diamond Awards by Midtown Magazine.

Chef Wol Kim has played a vital part in our restaurant’s success over the years, crafting and perfecting a menu of specialty sushi and creative Japanese dishes that has made Mura one of the most popular spots at North Hills.  Matt Lowery has become a key addition to the Mura team. His contributions have helped maintain a fresh and creative menu.

Chef Lowery is a North Carolina native. Growing up on his family’s small farm ignited his passion for food – being around it his entire life took the guessing game out of his career path. Matt loved taking beach fishing trips with his family and really enjoyed learning how to clean and cook the fish from such an early age. Though his first job wasn’t in the restaurant industry, in the back of his head he knew the kitchen was home. At age 18, Matt took his first restaurant gig, but soon after headed to The Art Institute of Durham for a culinary degree. During his tenor at The Art Institute, Matt worked at several mom-and-pop restaurants until he landed here.  Though Matt is the chef in the ‘hot’ kitchen, he’s no stranger to rolling sushi. In fact, you may have had his sushi before, as it’s been featured on our menu.  Outside of Mura, Matt truly loves to relax. Often times, you’ll find him exploring Raleigh’s incredible culinary scene for research and inspiration, and red wine.
