Very nice service. Traditional Japanese tables

The service was very nice and started with a nice warm towel for your hands. The ladies wore a traditional kimono and were very pleasant. The rolls were fresher and with some variety. I had the Santa Fe roll that had sun dried tomato - never had it before. The traditional room only had four... read more

Nikko has the best rolls in my opinion in the Livingston/Whippany area. The service is not overwhelming and yet attentive. However, the place can get a bit cramped and noisy during peak hours.

This is my favorite Japanese food in my area. Nice environment and friendly service. I always enjoy the hot towel prior to the meal. It is a bit difficult being a vegetarian. But the avocado roll is great and the tempura is also great. I just use soy sauce though I miss the tempura sauce :) For meat eaters, this... More

I mostly eat chicken, but since japanese restaurants always have chicken, I happily skipped over here. My best friend who does eat sushi liked their ratings so we looked forward to eating here. My chicken was great! I loved my chicken katsu! But who cares about chicken. My best friend enjoyed her sushi. The service was great, our server was... More

My parents came to this place a lot even before I was born, and we still come here to get reliably good Japanese food. There's a reason why this place has been open for so long: it has some of the best Japanese food you'll find anywhere. The chirachi is fresh and delicious, the sushi is very good, the fried... More

Everything is good. Only beware when ordering a cocktail - sometimes the waitress doesn't understand your order and when your served the wrong drink she gets a bit huffy.

My first time at Nikko impressed me for the great sushi/sashimi selection and nice atmosphere. Soup selections are limited. A little pricey. BYOB. Service was excellent although a little slow (the restaurant was not full when we got there). They take orders for end of year parties. It seems popular in the area for this purpose.

This by far the best sushi in the area. Since I started tuna fishing years ago I have become a sushi "snob" The sushi here is almost as if I caught the fish myself.

I have been coming to this place for years. Having had both lunches and dinners - I can vouch for consistency and quality of the fish. Sometimes it is a bit of a delay, depending on the crowd - but it is worth the wait. Great customer service and they remember their regulars a which is a plus!

A surprisingly authentic Japanese restaurant in NJ with an extensive menu. Excellent service and really fine food. Not to be missed.
