If you want authentic sushi, this is the place to come. Otherwise you'll need to travel to Japan. The eel here is exceptional, and I also love the albacore.

Well, maybe I'm being a little harsh but I live in the desert and we have better sushi places. This being on the coast I expected more. That said, the food was fairly good and there was ample range of dishes. Service was friendly and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the tasting flights of sake.

Hi Eugene G! Thank you for your review. Man, desert sushi! That is saying a lot! I am sorry that we could not meet your standards for sushi in this location. I would love to know exactly what it was about what you had that was not up to par. Chef Danny has standards that has gotten him recognition, all... More

Our first visit, but I wish I lived near- this is the best Sushi I have ever had. The Udon Noodles were outstanding. Everything here is made in house and there is NO sliding over into other parts of Asia-It's all Japanese and it's got to be one of the "BEST Restaurant in the South" I cannot wait to go... More

Finally made it here twice. First thing you notice is the friendliness of the staff. They seem to personally know many of the people who come into the restaurant, indicating to me that they are frequent customers. All food is fresh and prepared to order. The sushi is very fresh and delicious. I plan to return and order just sushi... More

Fantastic lunch owner operated by wife Lana and husband Chef Danny. The fact that this is their own business and they pour their heart into it makes me want to frequent It instead of other sushi places. You can tell they are passionate about their food. They make their own dressings and even their own soy sauce! The icing on... More

Why have I not been here before now? Why is it freaking good? Why am I not eating there right now? Best sushi I have had in a long time. The tuna just melts away in your mouth like butter. Not one negative thing to say.

We're from California, and frankly didn't expect much from a sushi joint in Wilmington, NC. Not that Wilmington isn't a nice place, but we've been eating sushi for a really long time, and with California's huge Asian population, we have had the benefit of variety as well as quantity. Well, we were brought down a peg by Genki Sushi. There... More
