Elizabeth City is a small town, but this place had fresh and well done sushi. Prices were pretty good and the food was excellent.

I have lived in Elizabeth city all of my life and going there to this day is a treat. I can't say this place is exactly cheap because I am in high school but I make sure to save my money for this. The food...is fresh, the people are kind and It is a nice atmosphere. I am pretty positive it is also family-owned so go and support. If you can't afford Japan, go to Toyama!More

Walk in and greeted by owner or sushi chef etc., as a regular i get my Sapporo with a menu and edamame . Great service and the food is fantastic, so comfortable in the environment and relaxed then WOW ,sitting on my table is the...fine display and colors the chefs prepared. Not some super fancy resort with coy fish etc., just a hidden gem in a town you wouldn't expect to find this level of cuisine .Never had a bad meal here, or complaint ,its hit or miss at all the other chain places or locally owned ,been going here over 15 years .P.S, Sara is so cool ,she also works at a local grocery store and says hi every time we meet .All the ladies are nice and owners 2 sons work when they can, very good teenagers ,great manners etc.More

Recently moving back to ENC after living in SoCal for a few years, we decided to try sushi. It was good. My pictures do not do the chicken or the “pot stickers” justice. The service was very quick and the bussing as well. Before we...knew it our food was on the table with the previous plates cleared. My attitude in some things might be tough having come from a food Mecca, with expensive tastes, but I feel for a small town like Elizabeth City that the food was delicious and upon traveling here again we would try additional specialty rolls.More

Wherever we go, we look for Japanese food. This place did not disappoint. Due to COVID19 we did takeout. The sushi was fresh and tasted great. The Miso soup was also good. There is no parking lot, its just street parking as far as I...could tell, but we found a close spot to park to quickly get the food. They had a plastic window with a slot to try to minimize contact, so I would say the restaurant is taking all reasonable COVID19 precautions.More

We started our meal with a decent salad and some very good edmame. I had the soba (thin versus thick) noodle bowl with lots of tofu, veggies, and a tasty broth. My wife had about the same but with a few shrimp. Both were very...good.More

We have lived in the area for a while but it was not until today we made it to this restaurant. We are so upset we waited so long to try it. Everything was so delicious. We will be adding this to our favorite restaurant...list for sure.More

We have gone to this restaurant several times over the past few years and always enjoyed the Sushin and have written good review on TA. On our visit yesterday, wife ordered sushi off the lunch special menu and wanting something different I ordered the chicken...Terriyaki. Sushi was really nice and flavorful as always but I was taken aback by the presentation and content of the the terriyaki dish which consisted of rice, two tiny pieces of barely steamed broccoli florets and strips of chicken breast lying in a pool of sauce. Sauce was VERY good but the chicken was unflavored strips of chicken.........nothing else on the plate and the chicken was relatively dry and bland. Frankly, I have seen better presentations of chicken terriyaki from frozen meals. To reiterate the title of this review, stick with the sushiMore

My niece and I have visited Toyama several times over the last year when we have been in Elizabeth City. We always get the same dish, steak teriyaki. I can't even begin to describe how delicious this dish is. This is a small place, also...specializing in sushi. The staff is very courteous and helpful. I highly recommend this establishment.More
