Nikai Sushi - Awesome

Nikai is the best Sushi and Japanese food you will get in JH - I tried them all and this is my "expert" opinion. The rolls and Sashimi are clean, the presentation is wonderful, and the taste is second to none. Try the Escolar with Jalapeño, but the real badge of honor is their selections of Sake... read more

We've eaten at this small, upstairs sushi and grill restaurant every year for the past 6 or 7 - so I think we know what we like. The menu is divided between 2 kitchens - and while sometimes that can result in odd timing events (things ordered first arriving last), it's not generally a challenge. This year, as we'd done...

We ordered five different types of sushi including the special. All of it was fabulous. The Big Kahuna is my favorite. The kitchen had sold out of the pork belly but will definitely try next time we are in town. We always eat here at least one time on our trips.

My wife, daughter, and I have been to Nikai several times on our prior trips to Jackson, and the restaurant has gotten to know us such that when we made a reservation they knew our name from our phone number. We had a 6:30pm reservation tonight, and when we arrived we were shown to one of two elevated tables with... More

This is some of the best sushi I've ever had. The service is attentive and excellent. I'd recommend making a reservation in advance, even on a night you don't think it'll be busy. Their coconut margarita, luxe roll and philly roll were my favorites. Everything I saw being served looked delicious. I don't think you can go wrong here.

The atmosphere was lively. We sat at the bar and the service and food was very good. The quality of sushi was excellent. Nice selection of beers and wine. Also, the saki was plentiful.This sushi restaurant is worth a try!

First class sashimi. The ahi tuna was excellent. I also had California rolls and a type of vegetable roll. My wife doesn't do sushi, and she ordered bison sliders which she said was excellent also. 5 Stars!!!

This was an unexpected find in Jackson. The decor is fabulous and so is the food. If you go, you must try the miso roasted black cod. It is one of the best dishes I have had
