Wilmington visitors can enjoy a full taste of Asia without ever leaving the downtown region with a stop at the Sunny Sushi & Lounge. Located along Front Street next to a collection of cool bars, shops and destinations, this cozy lounge is a fine spot to relax, enjoy a drink, and dive into a wealth of traditional Japanese and Thai cuisine.

The interior is small but relaxed, with a line of cozy tables and booths, and a long bar that offers ample room for larger parties. The menu is just as eye-catching, with a host of Happy Hour specials, rolls, Japanese entrees, Thai specialties, Sushi / Sahami dinners, combination specials, and enticing Super Baked fusion combos. The “baked” rolls are a unique place to start, with options like the Blue Heaven with spicy crab mix, cream cheese, asparagus, sweet potato, and avocado topped with slow baked blue crab mix, cream sauce and sweet glaze. Traditionalists, however, will want to stick with the entrees, like the teriyaki or hibachi dinners which can include proteins like NY strip, shrimp and scallops, or fresh veggies. A little elevated and always inviting for a long meal with friends, Sunny Sushi & Lounge is a popular spot for stylish vacationers to enjoy a creative spin on Asian fare.
