I used to go to Nikki's at least 2 times a week if not more. Their happy hour is so affordable and my boyfriend and I loved it. All of my sushi loving girlfriends loved it as well. Their Spicy Salmon Avocado roll is amazing. Good quality sushi for a great price.

The service was fast, the food was fantastic (I had the seaweed salad, octopus salad and the sushi sampler, my wife had the Summer of Love roll). Prices are very reasonable, and the location is terrific.

Went here to enjoy dinner with family while at Wrightsville Beach. This location was off of Military Cutoff Road. The hibachi chef at the table was very entertaining and the food was delicious! Will go back for sure when in the area!

My boyfriend and I stopped to get a late lunch. It was very good sushi and fast service but nothing over the top.

I go to Wilmington once or twice a year for 12 years and I always make time to go to Nikki's. They have some of the best sushi I've ever had and my favorite miso soup. Service is always friendly and quick. Quiet and cozy, perfect for date night or socializing with friends.

I had two great meals there. Although, the sushi menu is what makes them shine, they cater to the less "adventurous", shall we say. Their sushi and Japanese offerings were fresh, well-prepared and delicious. They also proffer Tex-Mex items and American items. It was conveniently located, the restaurant was well lit, highly recommended by locals, and the waitstaff was professional,... More

Great fresh ingredients with some exceptional combinations too. Be sure and try the crab salad along with the super crunch roll. Although wouldn't normally ever order they offered us dessert to try - wow! It was awesome. The food presentation was also amazing.

There are several Nikki's restaurants available in Wilmington. The sushi is fresh and there are many interesting rolls to order. It also accommodates families where some people would just like a sandwich and other "cooked" food. I love the Bento boxes. Fried Cheesecake is worth the calorie splurge

If you go for lunch most likely you will get a salad free with your meal and Miso soup that is so warming that we have gotten it just te feel better when someone had a cold. It is a great place to mix it up and share but I would so recommend the Sesame chicken with the salad and... More
