As was with the downtown restaurant, the sushi was incredible. Service wasn't all that great, but the food is what we go for! Looking forward to trying the Surf City location in a few weeks while on vacation!!

We used to come here on vacations about five years ago. We were eager to come back! We were not disappointed. We ate here for lunch two days in a row. The staff was so nice and accommodating to our son. Both days we got the sushi specials which we really enjoyed. Portions are generous and you can't beat the... More

This little pit stop was found as my husband and I were looking for good sushi on a Monday afternoon in downtown Wilmington. Boy, were we surprised at how good our meal was. We ordered a few rolls to split, and talked about how good/fresh they were, our whole way home. Looking forward to visiting a few more of their... More

YUMMY. Now... this is my favorite sushi place in NC; however, the recently have changed the menu. They used to serve a bento box called the roll combo box which was a great deal. It came with a salmon hand-roll, tuna rolls, California rolls, miso soup, and a small ginger salad for under ten dollars, but they recently made this... More

I went to the one at 260 Racine Drive. I love this place for their happy hour half price sushi and $3.00 appetizers. Food is very fresh and I love the appetizers.

I would only come here for sushi, they have five location in wilmington so their fish are the freshest. Although they are know for sushi but their cheeseburger are really good too. Now I am into their vegetarian bean curd pita melt with their fresh made hot chip or onion ring. So good

The happy hour deals for sushi are excellent, the best I have found in Wilmington. The downtown location almost always exceeds expectations with fresh sushi. I wish happy hour was 4-7 instead of 4-6, I often miss it.

Went to Nikki's downtown last night. The service was great. The servers pull tips which is not a bad idea if you want to make sure your guests are always taken care of. Nikki's is practically across the street from Yosake (another sushi restaurant downtown) but my husband and I usually go to Nikki's. More casual, more affordable, always good!... More
