Excellent food, excellent service!

The staff at this restaurant were so lovely and helpful, they really went out of their way to make our meal enjoyable. The food was amazing and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The portions were very big and none of us managed to finish our food. The atmosphere was lovely too. Hidden gem in Lenton!

In an unlikely position, amongst shops in Lenton, this little place is amazing. The staff were brilliant, guiding us through the menu, and the food really was amazing. The presentation and flavours really were first class.

The place is small and I think it's only open 4 nights a week but the food is really nice. I'm a big sushi fan and whereas Higoi lacks the style of other places, even in Nottingham, it more than makes up for it with fresh, tasty and interesting dishes. My girlfriend had something that came in a teapot which... More

Nice atmosphere being small & cosy. Interesting menu but a little over priced for what you got. Good to experience Japanese food though.

One of authentic japanese restaurant in Nottingham. Food is really delicious and staff is really friendly. I would recommend you to reserve the table before you go there. It has a limited seat which is often fully booked.

So I'm quite the fan of Japanese food but rarely have the chance or the money to go for it. Treated myself as my family was in town and I have to say we were all disappointed. Food took ages to arrive and when it did tasted bland. Over half of everything was deep fried with no sauces or spices,... More

Refreshing to find such an authentic restaurant in Lenton. I was surprised at how expensive dishes were for their size (4 scallops for £17), but this was largely justified by the outstanding quality of the food - the best Japanese I've had in England. Service could have been better.

we have been there before and this little charm does not disappoint. Great Japanese food sushi sashimi noodle dishes. I can only recommend Higoi Restaurant. Just make sure to make a reservation it has very limited seating. Very pleasant owner and waitress.

On the outside this restaurant is slightly oddly placed but on the inside it was simply decorated and when we ordered the food we were pleasantly surprised by the quality. The sushi and sashimi set menu was good value for money and there was enough there to fill you up. The quality of fish is much higher than your average... More

Food was good. BUT, they FORGOT to serve us dessert as they didn't realize it was a part of our meal. Even after reminding and waiting for over half an hour they were not bothered to serve it. The excuse given was shortage off staff. It took almost 30 minutes for the staff to process our payment and WE had... More
