“Good price. Good times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

Love Nishiki on 16th.

Rools are great. Amazing happyhour. Sunday half off rolls are very good. Love the oysters, corvette roll (the best), cajun roll (add tuna on top for more meaty taste)... Nothing is bad here. Great staff. Great cocktails and sake. Definitely do a sakebomb.

This is the perfect place to start a night off!!

“Good Sushi Bar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Nishiki Sushi is located in the mid-town area of Sacramento where there are many choices for restaurants. We go to a lot of Japanese eateries and have sampled a lot of sushi. The rolls here are well made and tasty, but a bit higher than you can pay for similar or better rolls in the same general area. Service was okay, but not very attentive. We were a Groupon customer too so maybe that had something to do with it. However, there appeared to be only 2 servers working the floor so a bit short staffed. Had to ask another server for a to go box. Check was plunked on the table but the server retreated so fast we couldn't ask for anything. Interior isn't that appealing, modern but definitely a bar atmosphere with several large screen TV's on the walls. For the price there are several Japanese restaurants in the area providing similar food at better prices in a nicer atmosphere and with better service. Skip this one unless you have one of the Groupons or special discounts to bring the price down to a more reasonable rate to reflect the ambiance and service.

“They Couldn't Care Less”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The service in this restaurant completely overshadows everything, including the food which is decent, but really, for 10+ dollar fancy sushi rolls - wouldn't you appreciate a smile and someone who actually asks if you need anything? I guess having a Groupon means you get to be treated like an annoyance and although the manager tried in a half-hearted way to help, the fault lies squarely with him. Guess its more of a drinking bar type joint that caters to regulars from what I can read but go elsewhere if you want a pleasant lunch experience. Bad 80s music and dark exterior made me even more depressed. Its THAT bad.

“Average food and ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

This use to be one of our favorite places, but over the years, the quality has decreased. The restaurant does not appear to be as clean as well.
