Read some great reviews on this place and decided to give it a try. Boy oh boy I'm so glad we did. The wife and I normally indulge in specialty rolls, as basic rolls just don't do it for us anymore. Lets start with the complimentary spicy crab salad. Its spicy without any significant burn and quite tasty. I prefer... More

This was my first visit, but certainly not the last. A friend suggested going, saying to is one of her favorite Japanese restaurants. Considering its location in a strip mall, I had low expectations for it. It was such a pleasant surprise to walk in to such pleasant surroundings. I had a bento box for lunch. Everything was very good,... More

This is a comfortable restaurant tucked into the corner of a strip mall near the university. I was immediately shown to my table and attended to. I thought the pricing reasonable for what I was served and particularly enjoyed the crab salad at the beginning and the sliced orange at dinners end. The chef/owner? came by the table to see...

First, they gave me a taste of their spicy crab salad that was complimentary...and that was soooo good. The Corona roll is different and fun. If you order sashimi, they double the fish for the nigiri price. Another complementary Shrimp app. Another roll...I'm stuffed. Just really beautiful sushi and nice people!!!

We love sushi, and have eaten here the few times we have visited Wilmington. My husband and I went alone the first couple times, and then again with our three grown children. Everyone loved it. The service is great, the chef is wonderful. He kept sending food to our table, we had fun trying new things. We always say if... More

Great food. Great staff. Awesome chef. He always comes to the table to ask about your meal. Usually very few people in the restaurant, which I appreciate but can't figure out why.

My husband and I really enjoy sushi and this place served some really good sushi. We came over Christmas break with our kids and really enjoyed our dinner at Wasabi sushi. While I don't remember what we each specifically ordered, we both had a couple sushi rolls and they were all really good. Would go back in a heartbeat if... More

Had a girls lunch. I had a bowl of the tofu soup, it was really god and the portion was very large. We ordered a varied selection of sushi, the sushi was very fresh and tasted great. Will definitely eat there again.

The restaurant is located in the corner of a strip mall, yet the ambiance inside was nice. The sushi was good, and the service was excellent, but we felt the prices were higher than average.
