Really good! Cannot beat the price of the kids menu. Sushi and kitchen entrees are great! They offer 30% off during happy hour on a special sushi menu Next time plan to check that out. Will definitely return!

Every time I get sushi here I don't think it will surpass the last few visits. Boy am I wrong! How can this establishment get any better? It can't. I love this place! Why it isn't packed on a daily basis is beyond me.

Visited for happy hour specials from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Came last year as well and wasn't disappointed. Sushi was very fresh and prepped well. Definitely will visit again on my trip

Looking for good sushi is always a troublesome chore but this was an easy decision. The sushi was flavorable and made fresh. We had the soft shell crab tempura appetizer and the sesame chicken. All delicious with a plentiful portion and a reasonable price. We will be going back again next year. If you enjoy sushi and chinese food and... More

We come here all the time and it's excellent every time. We've tried so many different dishes and every one is amazing from the General Tso's to the Pad Thai. The sushi is the best you will find anywhere and I'm not talking just in Outer Banks. The staff are great too which makes it even better.

So happy to have tried this restaurant! Amazingly varied menu... guess you'd call it "Pan-Asian". The Gyozas are terrific. Also enjoyed some fantastic sushi. Can't wait to go back. Reasonably priced, as well!

My family and I were staying at the hotel next to the restaurant and we decided to walk on over when I mentioned to them you have Hibachi and Chinese cuisine as well. Our server was delightful, friendly and prompt with our meals and drinks. I ordered the Outer Bank Rolls and thoroughly enjoyed it. There was 8 pieces which... More

As a local I have past this restaurant many times but never stopped. Recently celebrated a friends birthday and this is one of his favorite places. What a surprise! The family run restaurant excels at customer service with its friendliness. Of course the food goes along with the service. We had sushi which was well presented, a large portion and... More
