Tasty!

Very small restaurant, really great menu. Lots of Japanese choices and some dishes, new to us. Six of us eating, all thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I have been here yearly with my martial arts club as our annual dinner party and the last 4 years have been amazing. The food is great, I had a beef dinner set and the portions were weirdly enough, despite it may looks small but there is a bit of everything so you do become full-and I'm a big eater.... More

I love this place and I come every time I visit the city. The food here is really authentic and simply superb. The staff always make me feel welcome and I can relax and enjoy the delicious food on offer. Tonight I tried the Black Cod starter and the Sashimi main course with midori cocktails. Fabulous !!

This is a good restaurant if you don't expect it to be authentic Japanese, to be fair. They improvised the food a lot. And I should say the quality of their sashimi is excellent. The reason I gave 3 out of 5 is really on authenticity. The soy sauce was very sweet. The sushi was shaped in a very unique... More

I live in a student house just round the corner from here and would never have noticed it if I hadn't be searching through trip advisor. It's usually way out of my price range to consider going but mine & my girl friend's birthdays are a week apart so for our in the week after our 21st's we decided to... More

Having been a regular visitor in the past, I stopped going to Higoi due to a bad experience. I decided to pay a visit recently and I was pleasantly surprised by the improvements made since my last visit. I would now highly recommend Higoi as a worthy Japanese restaurant to visit. It now serves a good and wide choice of... More

We arrived on a midweek evening without booking but they happily offered us a table and the staff were delightful. We shared a Sashimi main, a sushi main and tempura vegetables. They were all amazingly good and I am now completely hooked on Japanese food. I was sorry to be driving and unable to try the sake and japanese whiskeys... More

It's a small restaurant but has plenty of atmosphere and the staff are very friendly and accommodating The food was lovely and well presented but the portions are small and very expensive, I tried the Japanese beer and it was outstanding. The mood... More

Have been there a couple of times and they are surely the best Japanese restaurant in Nottingham. Sushi is great and so is other. And the staff is very polite. A bit expensive though.

Authentic Japanese restaurant with high quality sushi. Although it was expensive, it was worth every penny. Did not expect to find this small gem in Nottingham.
