“Average sushi but excellent service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The sushi was mediocre. However the service attentive, genuinely pleasant and prompt. They did try to cater to a gluten free diet.

“Great sushi, a little slow on a Sat night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Much better location than Wasabi. We had to wait a little longer than usual because we ordered right after a group I four frat boys. There was only one guy making the sushi. The non-sushi menu sounded food, but we only had rolls. The service was excellent and so was the hot green tea. Probably not the best if you are in hurry, but we were not and the wait didn't bother us. Try it.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This little restaurant, tucked in a strip mall across from Target on the commercial stretch of Market Street, is light, clean, and super value. The food- which goes well beyond sushi- is made with care and the service is quick and cheerful. The tempura is superb- crisp, impossibly light, grease free- and you can taste what's underneath. The nigri sushi was perfectly made, spanking fresh and delicious. My non-sushi dining partner loved the chicken teriyaki- flavorful pieces of light and dark meat that is more marinated than sauced. The soups were good examples of familiar soups. Really delighted to find this down to earth, conveniently located little bistro.

“Terrific find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic sushi. Rare find!
Loved the quaint & cozy feel of this little gem. Make sure to try the sparkling sake, hand made by the chef. Service was fantastic also & everything was super fresh.
Folks, go in & try it.

“Fresh and fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

On vacation in Wilmington and based on other reviews decided to stop by. We were warmly welcomed when we entered and had a choice of seats as it was a little early and not very full yet (that changed by the time we left). We opted to sit front and center at the sushi bar to watch the owner at work. The couple who own the restaurant are so cute we wanted to take them home with us, or be adopted. We like to try a variety of different things so we ordered 4 rolls and each had a completely different flavor but all excellent. The owner offered us a complimentary shot of homemade saki. I've only tried saki once before and didn't care for it but vacation is an adventure so tried it. It was smooth and not overpowering, perfect for sipping with the sushi and beer. We splurged and ended with green tea ice cream and the walnut cake. The walnut cake was awesome but ice cream was good too. The server brought us a tray of homemade caramels to sample with the check. Terrific! The decor is simple, but we are never impressed by fancy places, it's the food that matters. Great fun, fresh food, made and served by people who love the same.
