Was hoping for too much. Really wanted Thai food, but also wanted some sushi for an appetizer. Thought this restaurant might satisfy both cravings. Based on reviews expected sushi to be a good bet and was hoping they could do a decent job with the Thai. Had 2 appetizers.....a volcano sushi role and crab rangoon. Neither were particularly good. The... More

I came here with my family because they had so many good reviews. They did not disappoint. The waitresses and waiter were very friendly. The amount of food for the price was awesome, and I'm the kind of person that likes to be sure I am going to get enough food when I eat out. We got their lunch special... More

The family went here to get a sushi fix and they were not disappointed! Not too keen on sushi myself, I ordered the orange chicken, and it was among the best I've ever had! The chicken was cooked just right, the presentation was AMAZING, and the service was fast and friendly. If you're ever in OBX but kind of wishing... More

Maybe the title is a bit overboard but, seriously, the sushi is amazing. I try sushi everywhere I go and I always think about Sanya when I need a Sushi fix. Too bad, I live in Naples, Florida or I would be there every week. Try everything and anything but my new fav is the Bangkok Roll. My brother buys... More

While on vacation, my sister, her husband, and I ordered take-out from this restaurant. It was perhaps the best Asian take-out I've had in a while. My sister and the hubs ordered sushi (it looked great) while I opted for the Spicy Thai Snapper entree. It was fabulous and stayed crisp in the takout container. My only complaint is with... More

We ate around 5:30 PM on a Tuesday. The lack of cars in the parking lot originally made me pause, but I trusted prior reviews and went in. Boy am I happy we took the chance. The egg drop soup was very tasty. My husband substituted for wonton soup for an extra $2.00. He enjoy it and the wonton noodles... More

We got there kind of late so there wasn't too many people there. The staff was very friendly. The menu offers traditional Chinese as well as Japanese and a little Thai. All of us got something different and we were all impressed with the quality of our meals. Prices were about standard for quality Asian dinner. Would definitely recommend.

We tried many of the different sushi rolls and they were all fresh and excellent. They had a great kids menu that had more than just the usual choices on it. The staff were friendly and welcoming and it all seemed really good value.
