We stopped at Sanya for the first time this year. We were concerned because it wasn't busy but my guess is it was the time of day. We ordered both Chinese food and sushi. We all enjoyed everything! Adding Sanya to our annual stop list.

We were a party of twelve for lunch. I'm not sure what happened on our visit since the other reviews said that their service was good, but ours was not. It was very awkward. Perhaps our waitress was new...because every time we needed something we had to get up and tell them. For example, when we were ready to order... More

You won't find many Asian restaurants in the outer banks but this is definitely the best! The service is outstanding, the value is hard to beat and the food is just delicious. Have sushi or a traditional Chinese general tsao's chicken - either way you won't be disappointed and you won't go home hungry.

The staff are so nice an honest, ask them what's good and they'll tell you! The chef is an artist! The sushi rolls not only taste amazing they are beautiful. This is my favorite OBX restaurant! The sushi is always awesome and the rolls can't be beat. Try the dragon roll with a jalapeño pepper on top!!

My son didn't feel like sushi (unusual for him), so he ordered the orange chicken on both visits. His friend had two rolls that he loved. I had the yellow tail appetizer with the jalapeño and fish roe in a light fresh sauce (I was getting some light cilantro and lime flavors). I also enjoyed the spicy tuna cocktail, which... More

This was close to our hotel so we stopped in at happy hour. They offered 30%off sushi in the afternoon. We sampled a sake that was very good and tuna sushi plus avocado/ cucumber sushi rolls The staff was pleasant. We had a great discussion with a Chinese choppy ,

Good atmosphere at this Japanese/Thai restaurant in Kitty Hawk. They have a great happy hour sushi menu that you can order off from 3:30 until 5:30. Good deals there. Overall, the food was very good and I would go again. We ate rolls, sashimi, and sushi and everything was great. Not crazy about the salad dressing, which tasted more like... More
