Okay

The food we found lacking. The poor server looked nervous. The food was just okay, we would not go back. But we sat outside, which was nice.

We had the special with unlimited cocktails and three course meal that was offered just for the fashion show night. We had the cucumber salad, shrimp and rice sushi and... More

Travelling to Nuevo for the last 16 years and Nicksan is a must every time for my family since it's opening a few years back. We usually have an early dinner with kids here at least 2 times during our stay. Absolutely love the teriyaki chicken, the soup is to die for. All around a great eating experience.

My only regret about Nicksan was that we only discovered it on the last day of our holiday. The food was absolutely superb and infact rates as some of the best sushi I have had. Like most Sushi restaurants the decor is a little "cold" but the food more than makes up for it.

If you love sushi, you will love Nicksan. Everything was fresh and delicious. Some interesting dishes on the menu that you don't see at other sushi restaurants. The service was also excellent. We wished we had another day during our trip to go back. We didn't make reservations and were seated at the sushi bar. The chefs were friendly and... More

The menu does not describe the rolls at all just names and when asked for a description they really dont have a good description of the roll so its a blind guess as to what your getting. Welcome to Mexico I guess. That said, we all loved our rolls and they were all very good. Then came the price tag............Ouch

Highly recommend all sushi lovers getting their dose here. Craving the great sushi in Vancouver for 4 months, I finally ate at Nicksan. Very pleasantly surprised. The tuna tostada was delicious along with the sashimi salad, gyoza's and a roll (not sure which one). The fish is very fresh and the dishes are well prepared. Pricing was decent and you... More

The food and service in Nicksan were outstanding. We ordered several dishes and every single one was delicious. The best items were the lobster roll and tuna tostada. Just absolutely delicious. I also really enjoyed their cold premium sake. I live in San Francisco and we have many good Japanese restaurants here but Nicksan was so much better than any... More
