Most excellant!

I can not fathom the fact that every time I drive by this place that it is not packed. Been wanting to go here for years and finally did. And I am one happy camper. I got the spicy tuna roll and spicy salmon roll. All I can say is...incredible! The menu is huge and they have everything you could... read more

What a relief. A quiet restaurant. Soft, gentle lighting. Extremely gracious and polite staff. No hurrying waitstaff running into each other and no loud crowds. Just a pleasant oasis of food and drink. Best sushi on the beach. We were greeted with a Welcome to SANYA! A very polite gentleman guided us to a table for 8. We went on... More

I always stop in and have sushi on my OBX visits. My brother (who is local) loves this place and so do I. It is our annual birthday celebration. The sushi is fresh and presentation is fantastic. The portions are large, prices are good, and service is wonderful. Try the specials and try happy hour for great prices. I have... More

Visited again this year with 12 of us. All agreed we were looking forward to returning and hoping it will be as great as always. Bottom line, we all walked out very happy with the experience. Great goyoza, house rolls, etc. Solid service. Highly recommended.

I love this place, I really do. But their sushi rolls are too stuffed with "crunchies" and it feels like a rip off. Also, their chicken entrees are all uniform, cubed, fried pieces that is a change if you are not used to it. Soups, salads, and other food is good.

One of the good Asian restraurant. Very friendly staff. Lots of food in one order also delicious. I recommend fried rice instead of regular.

Don't mind the negative reviews, we were on the fence based on those reviews and decided to give it a chance, glad we did!! Went at 3 pm on Tuesday, had to order a drink to get happy hour pricing but it can be a soda, doesn't need to be alcohol. Very reasonably priced sushi rolls on happy hour menu.... More
