Satisfy your Sushi Craving

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 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

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.

Ate here tonight under the recommendation of my brother who loves sushi. We sat down at 6:30 and did not receive our sushi until 7:30. We were told they only had one sushi chef. (on a very busy Saturday night) The service, to be honest, was awful. One of our servers had zero personality and acted as if everything was... More

Have eaten lunch here a number of times, and the food has always been fresh and tasty. Can get crowded at lunch time, so one feels some pressure to eat and move along. But I guess that's the price of success.

Was announced as the best sushi restaurant in the area and this was confirmed ... Excellent sashimi and some interesting specialty sushi. Japanese beer and saké selection.
