Good Japanese food

There are Japanese restos and there's Nonki. I love that they serve authentic Japanese food with real Japanese taste (they use original imported ingredients). The prices are not bad either.

The sashimi was not great, the beef teppanyaki was not good, fat, greasy. The tempura looked and tasted like straight from the micro wave. It was not fresh, disappointing.

Fresh and sumptuous jap food. They are not on the limelight but you will be surprised on the number of people that dine here each night. Word of mouth indeed. No need for social media. Sucks that i have only tried it just recently. How we went to Chaya just try their matcha ice cream! Lol! They have it here... More

I'm still quite upset with myself over how I've first tried out this restaurant just yesterday. Was badly craving for Jap food - sashimi, maki and tempura, to be exact - and we were happy to find that they offered a set meal good for 2 containing all those mentioned. The set also included Beef Teppanyaki, steamed rice, and fresh... More

This place has become our cantine for lunch. Among the best fresh sashimi in town for very great value. The sushi-tempura set is a killer deal, too much food actually. The noddle or soup are great and also very fresh. Service is just fine, nothing special to report. A good place for either a business meal, couple meal... Definitely a... More

I ordered two sashimi dishes (salmon and tuna) and one sushi dish (unagi maki topped with ripe mango). I have to say, all 3 were excellent dishes. My other entree was the soft-shell crab tempura, i think it was a generous serving of 8 delicious pieces. I'll definitely be back at Nonki when i visit Davao again.

This is not a typical restaurant that shouts Japanese phrases or whatever. The staff are very polite, the environment is relaxing and the food set-up is exquisite.

There are a few japanese resto here so comparing them to the others are limited. For the price for the LUNCH BOX set. and Im only giving it 5 star because of the lunch set menu. 250 to 400 you can actually feed 2 people with the amount of food they give you. The rest of the menu is a... More

Loved everything I had here.. From the different sashimi, chirashi & bentos.. Definitely eat here again. Plus it's one of the few places in Davao that has a legal smoking area!!
