Hardly ANYTHING was open Dec 25th. This place, thankfully, opened... even though they aren't normally open on Sunday, let alone Xmas day. Super smart business decision! Not only that, the food was really tasty. Asian (smiling, friendly) staff all wearing Santa hats, which was too adorable. We were more than grateful. Will be back, holiday or not.

We got a bunch of different things from the happy hour menu and the apps, rolls, and drinks were all quite good. Our server was very nice and attentive even though we came in during his time to eat. Their happy hour specials can't be beat for sushi prices and I loved the spicy tuna.

The chef accommodated our needs perfectly. Such friendly staff and the food was delicious! I got an assortment of sushi rolls and my husband got the Pad Thai. Very pleased! Will definitely return.

We always stop in here for habachi but especially the sushi. Have had many of the different rolls. Even the peppered tuna is great off-season. I love it here. Didn't get to see Yuki today so will have to return tomorrow!

Perhaps things weren't quite up to par during the Christmas holidays, but the sushi was not particularly attractive or fresh, the "orange beef" was too greasy to eat and the meat itself very fatty, the green tea ice-cream seemed a little past its prime, and our other entrees, while tasty, were not particularly inspired. Service was average. We've only been... More

I was in the mood for sushi so my wife and I went out to Sanya. She won’t eat the stuff so the menu needed to have other cooked entrées. I had the tuna sushi the yellow fin sushi and the salmon roll; all three were delicious and very fresh. As an entrée I had the red snapper with Thai... More

We wanted to try some sushi, as my son loves his sushi. We found this place, and are so very glad we did. We have tried sushi in many states from California to Chicago to New Jersey.

My husband and I came here to eat on our last night of our obx vacation. We should have come by sooner! The food was delicious and the service was gentle and unobtrusive. My favorite was the deep fried sushi. My husband loved all the sushi we ordered but was facinated by the Japanese strawberry soda. I would go back... More
