A nice change in our meal plan

While in Jackson, we take advantage of the steakhouses and meat we don't see on menus too often in the east. We wanted to try something a bit different one night, so went to Nikai. It's a small place, but quaint, settled in the upper level of a building. The sushi bar and options are extensive... read more

Best sushi ever - the waitstaff is amazing. Very helpful with their extensive menu. Attentive to allergy concerns - the chef came to the table to be certain which foods needed to be avoided. Beautiful décor - highly recommend.

After being turned away at an off street sushi bar recommended by local we turned up here. I explained what had happened to us and the hostess seated us immediately and gave us menus. Great sushi, great service in an unpretentious atmosphere.

The food, drinks, and staff are great! Didn't have high expectations of Sushi in this cowboy paradise but they far exceeded many of the great places I've been to in the big coastal cities. The drink menu is extensive and I taste tested all the drinks at my table. Three thumbs up if I had an extra. Top of the... More

We always eat at Nikai when we come to Jackson, which is about three times a year. We've traveled some, including coastal cities and Asian countries. Who would have guessed that some of the best sushi available is in a mountain town in Wyoming? Our service was good ~ no complaints. These are good folks serving great food in a... More

We have eaten here several times. We have never had a bad meal here. The service can be iffy but the food is always good. The drinks are great especially the Saki Sidecar. The TNT Tuna roll is amazing. The atmosphere is fun and laid back, for sure make a reservation as it is always busy!

Given the challenge of flying in fresh fish to a landlocked mountain town, you don't typically expect great sushi but Nikai tries to do it right - and sometimes even succeeds... I have found the quality to vary from very good to just OK, service is somewhat indifferent most of the time - yes, they are well trained and say... More

Our waiter warned us the sushi comes out when its completed but never would we have expected my son's chicken dish to be delivered 30 minutes before any of the sushi and then the sushi to come out individual rolls about 10 minutes between each roll---so it was a nice long drawn out dinner with great food, but the wait...

Great food. Great service. Management went above and beyond due to my oyster allergy. Unique. Make reservations.

Fish is flown in daily and made fresh at the sushi bar. Try the waygu beef from Idaho! Great selection and affordable prices.
