“Best sushi in Wilmington (plus some Korean dishes)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

This is hands-down our favorite place for sushi in Wilmington. CJ, wife, and staff are so kind and helpful. Very fresh fish and seafood. Sometimes they'll have items that aren't on the menu (just ask). In addition to the sushi, the other dishes I've had are good. With a varied menu, this is also a good place to go if some in your group don't like sushi. The Bibimbop is really good for those who want something Korean.

“Best sushi I've had in a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

This sushi is simply outstanding. We like rolls and everyone we tried was fantastic. Ginger salad was the best we've ever had and the spicy crab appetizer was out of this world with flavor. This place was 45m from where we are staying but we are definitely going back before we leave town. Don't miss this gem!

“Amazing what you can find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We followed Trip Advisor and tried this restaurant for dinner. I'm not too much into Sushi and that's okay because they have really good soups, salads, seafood and chicken skewers, shrimp dumplings, noodle dishes, etc. They give you a little crab salad with whatever you order and its so good! My husband loves sushi and he had crab, tuna and avocado sushi wrapped in cucumber. We also enjoyed a cucumber salad that is a Chef specialty. The food is great, the wine is adequate and the service is exceptional. This is a great place to learn about the different rolls and sushi. Its so worth giving it a try, even though the location isn't the greatest.

“You won't regret searching for this great sushi restaurant !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

Tucked away in the University Landing strip mall next to the UNCW is this bit of sushi heaven. Fantastic fish, bright and fresh decor, friendly staff. We had the "boat" for two which is quite the bargain.
