Good Sushi and Japanese food

We dined on Sushi (fish only, no veggie), veggie rolls, Miso soup and some odd things I didn't know. All good and nicely presented. It was noisy and hard to hear conversations with a 5 person round table.

The sushi and sashimi is super fresh, the toro is melting sensuality. If you are on a date and you don't think you will get laid then eat the toro it will more than make up for it. The tempura is really good but could be lighter, the salmon teriyiaki was a tad over cooked. The staff are paragons of... More

Wonderful restaurant with excellent sushi. The wine pairings are really very good. The decor is really beautiful. Very good service. The star though is really the wonderful food. The fried oysters are delicious, as is the asparagus tempura roll. Highly recommend a visit.

We had a variety of appetizers, sashimi and maki rolls. Everything was delicious and well prepared. The cocktail I had was one of the best I've ever had--I am very picky when it comes to drinks. I always describe my likings to the server and rarely the drinks come spot on. This was one of the rare occasions that I... More

As this restaurant enjoys great reputation we had high expectation, but sadly I must say they didn't live up to the reputation, especially at the price they charge. We had a 6pm reservation on a Sunday and arrived on time, but there was no parking space left in the packed lot. When we made a reservation on the phone there... More

We were looking for something a bit different in the Madison Valley area when we walked into Nishino. It is not your average neighborhood sushi place, but rather an elegantly appointed restaurant with a diverse and at times innovative Japanese menu. We had some traditional sushi and were amazed at the generous cuts of hamachi, the fresh scallop and the... More

Not the best restaurant on any one parameter--food, service, presentation or decor, but wholistic ally it all worked fine, and was worth the hefty price tag. Great place to celebrate a special event, but for day to day Japanese food, the top places in the ID are my favorite.

We had spicy butte clam soup, tempura, kale salas, and a sushi combo, with a large chilled sake. Everything was perfectly executed. The service was impeccable. It was a very enjoyable dinner, as expected, as always.

I have been to Japanaese restaurantes all over the world, including Japan, so every time I try to find the best in the town I am at the moment. I chose to go to this restaurant because I had read the reviews. Well, I cannot compare it to the others in town, so the only thing I can say that... More
