“Our family favorite sushi place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

Tropical Thunder Roll is what I always get although there are lots of good ones. Always good food and fresh made to order!

“Good sushi in a low key area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

I have eaten here twice. The service is a little slow unless you sit at the sushi bar. The tuna is local and rivals some of the best sushi bars in the country. The rolls are all good. The Nags Head roll impressed my family. The tab was significantly less than I was expecting. There is an 18% gratuity for parties of 6 or more.

“Not too shabby”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

I love sushi but am not an expert- that being said I found the menu to be kind of limiting because I avoid eel and imitation crab as much as possible and alot of there rolls had this in it. The quality was good but not great, service was a tad bit slow, prices was appropriate. The rolls I did get were tasty (Honolulu roll, KDH roll, Tuna sashimi). There are better places on this beach to grab sushi in my opinion but this is one of the few that does sushi everday all day.

“Yummy Sushi!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

We were vacationing in Nags Head and found this restaurant in a strip mall. Once we tried the spring rolls we couldn't wait for the sushi! We order 4 rolls (Honolulu roll, shrimp tempura, Philly roll, Yame roll) we would recommend them all!!!!
