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.

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.

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
