The Best Sushi EVER

I ve been several times to nicksan and i did enjoy the tasting menu very much, the salmon wontongs are outstanding but my last exeriance was a big deception. We ordered the famous wontongs tostadas as a starter and then the lobster with curry. We waited about 40 minutes to get this raw fish and then guess what?! They bring... More

We went back to Nicksan and were not dissapointed, this time the waiter suggested the "serranito" sashimi and it was delicious as the rest of our meal. All staff is friendly and they want you to be pleased.

Went to Nicksan last week. We have a place in PV, have for years. Go there regularly. Never had worse service than this place! Have you ever gone to a restaurant where whenever the waiter knows you want him, meets your eye,mother quickly looks away then walks the other direction. This is that place. Every server in the house, and... More

The server was a bit stiff. Did not explain the long list of items from which we were to order with our promotional coupon. When prompted to do so, he knew each one but was a bit sing song with his descriptions. He was not a bad server but never connected with us. Bottom line, we can eat this meal... More

Excellent service and outstanding quality of food. Everyone is so accommodating and creative with anything you might need or fancy. My family and I visit this restaurant as often as possible and it never disappoints! Looking at the menu is unnecessary as all waiters provide great suggestions that you never regret!

The food was good, but overpriced. We ate outside by the fountain as the inside looked plain. The waiter was friendly and courteous. If you are in the hotel, it's good sushi close by. I wouldn't drive there from PV again.

The food we had was delicious -- but I was still hungry at the end of the meal! We ate inside where there were no tablecloths and more of a sports bar atmosphere than outside by the fountain. Service was terrific -- but, folks, this is Mexico --so $92US for two appetizers, two "main course" dishes (without any rice, bread... More

Very good food but very pricy for Mexico. If you are used to high prices then this won't bother you. I think our bill for a modest meal for two with Saki was $75.00 USD. The ambience there was the among the best we have had in Mexico. Great for a special dinner.
