Great sushi

The sushi here is amazing! I would definitely recommend this place for sushi lovers. My favorites are the rock shrimp roll and the Manhattan roll. But, I'm not a big fan of their hibachi, it's a little sweet for me. And their rice that comes with the meal has an odd taste (maybe liquid smoke or too... read more

I visited this restaurant after reading quite staggering reviews like "authentic", "best sushi in Greenville" and "the real deal". Sorry to disappoint you but this is not authentic sushi nor is it the best in Greenville (I think Wasabi 88 is better) and I don't actually expect the sushi to be authentic, I much prefer the West Coast Varieties to...

I've lived in Tokyo, and live sushi. We regularly eat sushi both here and when traveling. The sushi is high quality. Occasionally there are off days, but I've found that to be the case all over. Almost always we get a good meal here. We return often and I would recommend the food.

Been to Japan several times. This is more like real Japanese than other American Japanese restaurants I've been to, even in much larger cities. My wife liked the noodles. I prefer the seafood. Lots of sushi choices if you like that. For my part, I was glad to fine someone in Greenville that realizes that spaghetti is not an oriental... More

I really enjoyed the food. Only paid 1.99 for Bud light (per class). I've tried a few Japanese places so far and this is the best one I've had so far. The service could be a little better but the food is on point.

While attending a football game at East Carolina, my daughter and I stopped in after the game. Trusted the reviews on TripAdvisor and they did not disappoint! Unbelievable sushi. Truly edible art!

The best sushi in town. Authentic Japanese place. You'll notice a lot of orientals eat here, so that's a good indictor of the quality. I go here about every 3-4 months and every time I go it gets better. Over the past year the presentation of the plates has steadily improved. The food has always been good, but the chef... More

Hands down, the best sushi. From Fayetteville and nothing here compares. We frequent Greenville often and this is a must have when we have a sushi craving. Great value! The same mediocre sushi here would cost twice as much. Check it out!

We had a delicious dinner tonight! It was the BEST tempura I ever had! Everyone else loved their dishes. My son and husband loved their sashimi. The saki was amazing! Great service! Highly recommended!

This used to be my favorite sushi place in town. It is now under new management (as of about a year ago), the former owners opened Shogun on Arlington Blvd. It is still quite good. They have recently branched out on their specialty rolls and done some interesting new things. Most of these are a bit pricy though. Last time... More
