Boom! You found one of my top 5 favorite spots in CLT. I rarely give out 5 stars to a place but they have consistently proven themselves on every visit I've had. I've been coming here since they opened and have literally tried every item on the menu. I have so many pictures from this place that google maps won't let me post them all! I've done them a disservice as it has taken me so long to post up a review. But they deliver on freshness, flavor, customer service and overall experience! Everything you would expect for a good time. Drinks are tasty and hit the spot too. You can dine inside in the main area, bar area, or even outside. Parking can be tight but there is literally a parking deck under the building that is free. Most people don't realize it. Give them a try and you'll find yourself walking out smiling and rubbing your belly.
One of our favorite sushi places. All of their roles are very fresh and delicious. Theyre definitely generous with their fish. Dynamite shrimp and crispy rice appetizers are a must.
Reminds me of the OLD Nikkos before they moved into their huge, loud, crowded location. Small Japanese Sushi and Teppanyaki restaurant in Dilworth on East Blvd. Great drinks, reasonably priced. $3 Mimosas Weekends. Sushi, Sashimi, Ramen and Tempura. Coming from Los Angeles it's hard to find a good Sushi restaurant. Every item was excellent. Our waiter was Gede from Bali and was great. Free parking inside the building. Worth it. Quiet vibe. Nice people. We had the Northern Roll / Lobster Claw, and the Sleeping Beauty / Strawberry Tuna Roll (?), Gyoza, Fried Brussel Sprouts. Would go for some more basic rolls the next time, but they were good and reasonably priced for the amount of food they served. The Tempura Veg was crispy and hot asparagus, broccoli, onion, eggplant, sweet potato. It's hard to please my husband sometimes, and we usually go to Musashi in Pineville because we like smaller places with less noise. This place has more selection-- a REALLY big menu actually.
The Dilworth area has a relatively new Asian fusion spot! The service was top notch and the food was awesome! Big pieces of fish in the Sushi, and the portions are big! Bring your wallet though, its not cheap.

It was okay. Just lots of stuff going on. The nigiri was warm which was odd. The rolls were overly spicy. Out of items. Very pricy over $175 for 5 rolls and 6 pieces of nigiri. The uni was good. Just wasn't worth the price nor was any single roll or nigiri really spectacular. I think its trying to get there but just maybe didnt hit the mark today.
