Nikki’s Restaurant & Sushi Bar

Nikki’s Restaurant & Sushi Bar opened its first location on Front St. in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina in 2003. Brothers Andy and Johnny Chen opened the location after spending many years studying the art of sushi along the entire east coast, and realizing the large demand for their high quality product in the Wilmington area.
Soon after reaching success with the downtown location, the Chen’s decided to open a second in Independence Mall. The menu remains the same, including many vegetarian dishes that quickly received awards and recognition from area publications.

In 2007, the brothers decided to provide a new menu and a unique atmosphere by opening Nikki’s Hibachi Steakhouse, a hibachi restaurant located on Military Cutoff Road. Our talented chefs and dazzling cocktails offer a memorable experience perfect for all occasions.

In the fall of 2008, Nikki’s went in a new direction by building a sushi conveyor belt for a true Japanese sushi experience. Located in Racine Commons, Nikki’s @ Racine is located close to the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and offers the first full service bar out of all the restaurants. Nikki’s Sushi Bar’s diverse menu focuses on obtaining the freshest seafood and the finest seafood available. Our menus have become a favorite for Wilmington locals and tourists alike, offering traditional Japanese fare along with Mediterranean, Greek, and classical American items.

In addition to our unique entrees, Nikki’s sushi chefs are dedicated to providing the freshest fish possible for our incredible sushi dishes. Specials are created daily in fun and flavorful combinations, ranging from nigiri and sashimi to rolls wrapped in cucumber.

We invite you to visit any of our five locations in North Carolina.
