We went because it was Wilmington's top rated restaurant. I do not know why. The place is mediocre. We had a sashimi platter. Most of the pieces in the selection lacked a distinctive taste. The restaurant was crowded and noisy. I will not return.More

We are Wilmington locals and eat here almost every month. The experience is consistently good. The food always is fresh and seems to be very authentic. The staff is always friendly. I usually get the lobster roll on pink soy paper. I highly recommend!

Upbeat atmosphere with fun waiters and waitresses. Tucked in a strip mind, this place is a true gem. Ask for Jonah or Chloe. Best service team. at any Sushi restaurant in the country. Friendly, informative and attentive. Ask for the Edamame. Extraordinarily different.

This sushi is absolutely amazing. Everything is fresh and handmade. It is a transcendent experience. Go to savor the food and the simplistic environment. And the desserts are not to be missed! Truly a gem in the port city.
