What can you say when you have been eating and loving sushi for 35+ years and you find some of the best ever in the middle of cowboy country where the bison herds roam free??!! Seriously, I live about 1 1/2 miles from the California coast and I have never had sushi like this! Super creative, tasty, unique rolls and... More

Terrible experience, worse Managent and trip busting dinner. The details are to numerous to list. Suffice it say... In for a early 6pm rezo after 80 minutes and virtually no food (and watching everyone around us continually served) the hunt for the manager began. 15 minutes later and nothing but excuses that didn't add up (like "sorry the new chef...

Trendy, family-friendly sushi restaurant within walking distance of town-center. Very fresh tasty sushi. Even my teen said it was some of the best sushi ever. The menu had a lot of interesting rolls -- too many choices! You can take away or eat in at tables or the bar. Staff was very friendly and service was quick.

This was a great place with a warm casual atmosphere. The staff was very polite and attentive. Great menu for both food and drinks. A little pricey but well worth it. Make reservations for a good table.

We didn't expect to find a sushi restaurant in Jackson, much less a sushi restaurant as outstanding as Nikai! Every bite of sushi was fresh and succulent! The Exotic Veggie Roll is a must! Our entire meal was truly scrumptious!

Who would guess that there is amazing sushi in Wyoming?! We enjoyed fresh, clean shrimp, salmon, crab, scallop, hamachi, maguro, and Kobe beef (a unique sushi experience!) with delicious sauces. Our waiter was somewhat absent and of little help with the sizable wine list, but other friendly servers stopped frequently and were very attentive. Great location with modern zen decor.... More

Who would have thought that you could get fresh and flavorful sushi and grilled Asian dishes in Jackson Hole Wyoming?? What a concept-- very tasty, presented in a beautiful, relaxed setting, with eager servers and a nice variety of dishes on the menu. When we were there several people were celebrating birthdays, and there was a festive atmosphere. We had... More

A unique sushi experience in the middle if Wyoming? Who knew? We are long term sushi lovers but Nikai led us into uncharted territory. We depended on our server Coop's excellent advice. Starting with scallop shooters and finishing with a Bonzai roll, our dining experience was superb. We love "different" and were happily rewarded at Nikai.

Nikai is fairly small, so I recommend getting there early or making reservations in the high season. The first time I tried to go, was near Christmas, we went in at 6:00pm and we're told the earliest opening was 9:00 pm. Luckily I was able to come back just after the holidays and enjoy a wonderful meal. We started with... More
