-you never know when it will be a nice dinner

It seems that or I am not good customer :-) or this restaurant is not for me. As I said before the decoration is very nice, the prices getting better and the food is like the weather, you never know what you are gonna eat. During my last visit it was fantastic but yesterday I was dissapointed... read more

If you are a Shusi lover and willing to pay something extra for quality, there's no better choice than nippon restaurant. Inspiring menu with different combinations, excellent service in a lounge, semi casual, environment.

We visited Nippon with my wife and it was the best experience we ever had. Everything was fantastic, the service, the atmosphere and the food. The quality and the presentation of the food is exceptional. The owner and the staff they are doing what they do with passion. We finally found our favorite restaurant in Cyprus!!!

Great improvement from my last visit. With the excemption of maki (sushi) it seems that the hot plates are very nice. Better quality salads in terms of portion, perfect duck with noodles, very nice Nippon prawns, very nice salmon tartar, very nice Suzuki tokyoto and for sweet mochi.

New location. Certainly much more appealing. Food is top notch. Very fresh sushi. Tasto and imaginative makimonos. Tataki is simply outstanding. Not cheap fpr sure. Remains among the top restaurants in Cyprus.

This was our first visit to NIPPON at it's new venue in Larnaca. Gil has done it again. The overall decor, ambiance, staff and food are exemplary. The menu is extensive and after struggling to decide what to eat on our first visit we asked Gil to design a menu for us the second time. It was superb. So many... More

This is not just Japanese at its best, TV master chef 'Gilly' has invented a new genre - his own fusion of Japanese and European tastes. One of the very few restaurants where every course is worth waiting for. Forget the menu - it's too complicated for non-aficionados.I recommend that you leave the choice to the ever- present Gilly himself.... More
