Best sushi in town!

This little sushi bar is nestled in one of the many Ensenada residential areas, it is not big in size but it is big in flavor and pretty popular. The sushis offered are creations of their chef, that make it a unique experience.

I must say I am a repetative customer at Nigori's, I just keep finding new items on the menu. There are also items not on the menu, whether it be their great sushi, sashimi or anything from the flat-top grill. One of my favorite sushi dishes is a japanese sailing ship presentation of 3 different sushi's absolutley delicious. There is... More

Just got back from Nigori and had to sit down right away and write this review. I've never been to Japan as some reviewers? But I've had a lot of sushi, and considered it quite good. This was the best I've ever had. Huge portions of fresh ingredients, great service. Cleanest restaurant I was in while in Mexico...including the restrooms.... More

If you are looking for good sushi look no more, great selection and prices are ok. Have been there several times, service has range from A one to need some help. But over all will go again

Mr. César Cruz owns, at least, two restaurants in Ensenada (to my knowledge). One of them is Ktana Sushi (a word play from the word "Katana"). The other one is Nigori. Nigori seems to have a larger variety or rolls than Ktana. Have been going there several times since 2013 and have had some not-so-good experiences, but they are the... More

Until Nigori came along several years ago, I thought I would have to "make do" with merely okay sushi while living in Mexico. Then came Nigori with its exquisitely fresh seafood, including sea urchins, and very creative combinations on sushi rolls. Also, you can ask the chef to surprise you with something not on the menu. You will be very... More

I liked the food, the atmosphere and the service. This is Ensenada, Mexico folks, not Nagoya, but quite satisfactory. Fresh, tasty choices, in a pleasant room, with good service. Would definitely revisit.

Been to Nigori five times and that's enough. The first four times we ordered off of the menu and it was good, at the time, probably the closest thing you could find to real sushi in Ensenada. Pricing was fair, sushi is not cheap anywhere. The last time my husband wanted a roll and the chef suggested his roll that... More

The portions are enormous, though the ambiance is decent, the music contrasting the tv n the center of the room is quite un tasteful and distracting, and the service is just plain awful, the close the doors before the actual closing time and the hostess won't even bother to move in order to open it for customers who are about...

The best sushi I have ever had was Zenbu in La Jolla (the owner has his own fishing fleet and the quality is out of this world) or Sushi Ota in Pacific Beach. But for Ensenada this is good. Hard to get to. Close to UABC in Valle Dorado. But clean and authentic. Good sushi and other dishes as well.... More
