Our family of three visited here for dinner. We had perfect service from the moment we came in the door. I would say this was the best dinner experience while we visited the Outer Banks. The food and drinks were presented beautifully and tasted just as great. Atmosphere was nice and clean. If you like Japanese or Chinese please try... More

We kept passing this place on 158, love sushi and maki rolls, so we decided to give it a try after reading the reviews. We got three Boston Rolls (w/soy wrap) to go and they were really fresh and delicious. We live an hour south of Chicago and we can get fantastic sushi/mali rolls there and the maki rolls we... More

Here is another great gem on the OBX. The wait staff is fast and friendly. The place is very clean and comfortable with soft Asian music playing in the background. We order three different rolls and a seaweed salad to start. The seaweed salad was outstanding in taste and presentation, plus the inclusion of fresh thinly sliced cucumber. The Volcano... More

We were originally planning to go to Black Pelican but the wait was 45 minutes. Just started driving and this place caught our eye! We were seated right away and the feasting began!!!! The food selection was varied and sampled the best of Chinese, Japanese, Thai and some others. Lumpia was amazing and very authentic flavored. Thai green curry was... More

We went here for lunch. They had a good variety of sushi that was reasonably priced. The sweet potato roll is worth trying out.

We went to this restaurant. The food was so good. We ordered chicken sesame, hibachi chicken, and shrimp with broccoli. The foods were delicious. I think this restaurant will become our favorite restaurant.
