Great food and wine choices and wonderful teppanyaki skills displayed by the local chefs. Can't beat the sashimi here! Service is amazing - worth a visit!

Daikoku has to be the best Japanese restaurants in Fiji if not the South Pacific. It offers great food (both A La Carte and Tepanyaki). The meals are very well done and delicious! This restaurant also rates well on the consistency front. The service is always prompt and with a smile. While the restaurant is not cheap, it is certainly... More

Sick of dalo? The sushi at Daikoku is super fresh and reasonably priced, but expensive if you're on a backpackers budget. I think it was worth the splurge though. You will definitely see the upper class of locals around the hibachi tables so make a reservation to claim your seat for yummy treat.

I didn't expect to find yummy Japanese food in Nadi so this was a nice surprise. It was recommended to us by the manager of a cruise company in Denarau. Tasty saki, miso soup, a great salad, yakatori, wasabi beef and chicken teriyaki. The staff was very kind and helpful. A great place to grab dinner.

Delicious food! A little pricey for the portion sizes but a great place to splurge for one night after spending 2 weeks eating on a budget. Super friendly and smiling staff.

The staff is very friendly. However this does not help a lot if the raw fish is being kept at high temperatures for hours, cleaning towels are being used for all kinds of purposes in the kitchen. The carpet which was once red (which you can still see under the artificial flower pots if somebody moves them a bit) is... More

Thank you very much for dining at Daikoku Restaurant. And we regret that we could not satisfy you. We appreciate for your comment, but I am afraid that we disagree to what you wrote about handling raw fish, and kitchen towel. We would like to correct your misunderstanding. First of all, we didn't have any suspicious raw fish which may... More

We were recommend to this restaurant by the owner of the Island resort which we stayed in while in Fiji. What a surprise when we walked upstairs to find it was teppanyaki. We enjoyed a lovely complementary salad for starters as the waitress was concerned with the time we had been waiting. This surprised us both as we didn't even... More

The food might seem expensive when you compare to the places around you, but just compare to the prices in the US, it's super cheap, without suffering in quality. The owners are Japanese which doesn't guarantee authenticity but doesn't hurt. Overall hightly recommended.

We were recommended to try this place by our taxi driver from the airport and after a couple of nights of overpriced and underwhelming resort dinners, we wished we had tried it sooner! They were apparently fully booked but they fitted us in as were just opening for the night. Atmosphere was incredibly tranquil, service impeccable and food was sensational.... More

Thank you very much for choosing Daikoku Restaurant. We continuously suffer from flow of trained employee, therefore I can not deny the lack of practical experience of our cook. However, all our Teppan-Yaki cooks took our Teppan-Yaki training program. Especially current team has a good understanding of being modest and patient on work and good team work mind, their hands...

I came here a few months ago and was pleasantly surprised by the food here. They have a good range of menu options and if you come with a group of people it's easy to try quite a few different dishes. It is a little more expensive than some of the other restaurants in the area, but the food is... More
