Still the Best Sushi in OBX

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... read 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

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
