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

Excellent sushi and sushimi. Also serves very good cooked food. BYOB. Weekends are very crowded. A bit expensive. Atmosphere is adequate

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.

Everything we ate was AWESOME !!!! Loved the spicy scallop roll, eel, spicy tuna and lobster roll. Hostess was attentive and loved the hot towels offered to the guests during dinner service.

We went to Nikko on our neighbor's recommendation. They've been going to Nikko about twice a month for years. We've been to several sushi restaurants since we moved to the area and were disappointed by all of them - until now! Nikko is our definite go-to for sushi, and anything Japanese for that matter. The rolls are creative enough so... More

Nikko has great creative rolls served in a delightful atmosphere with wait staff dressed in traditional Japanese costumes. Ideal for a business lunch. The sushi is so so but the rolls are really great

We come here every week because the sushi is so good. Some of our favorite appetizers are jalapeno yellowtail, bronzini tiradito, tuna tartar, naruto, and for those who like peanut sauce, honey island. The sushi is fresh and delicious, especially the yellowtail and blue fin toro (when they have it). We're not as crazy about the plain spicy rolls here,... More
