“Good Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

My girlfriend and I were road tripping across the country. It had been a long time since I had sushi, deciding not to trust it in most of the middle of the country. But it had been a while so we read reviews and tried Nikai, it wasn't the best I've ever had, but was very good. I would say for being in the middle of the mountains in Wyoming it was great, certainly better then a lot of posh places I've had it in Miami and New England. If you are a sushi fan this is worth a try, and the prices are on par or a little high for the area.

“Friendly to people with seafood allergies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I was cautious about going to Nikai because I have a serious allergy to seafood and had had a too close of a call at another sushi restaurant. But- I asked the waiter if they could accommodate such and he replied they could, it would just take a bit longer for our food because the kitchen needed to clean the board on which my food would be prepared. It seemed to take no extra time at all and our food was served beautifully. Presentation was great; the Seaweed Salad, Sashimi Flower and New England roll were delicious, and the amount of attention from the waiter was perfect. I'll definitely enjoy going back! It's nice to have $6 rolls during our "off season."

“Don't miss out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Our last night in Jackson Hole we dined at Nikai Sushi, based on a local's recommendation. The place was packed and we were lucky to get a table in the beautifully decorated 2nd floor dining room. We started out with a Coconut Margarita which was really, really good - but filling. The sushi, side dishes and Kobe beef sliders were hands down excellent. The only disappointment was the Asian Street Ribs never made it to our table -- wonder if someone else enjoyed them. Service is a bit disjointed as dishes came out in no specific order -- and we didn't appreciate the questionable look the waiter gave us when he was asked to remove the charge for the ribs from the bill. During our next trip to Jackson we'll visit again and hope for better service.

“Serendipitous Shelter from the Storm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Randomly dashed in to escape a major thunderstorm - knew nothing about the place - only to find one of the best Japanese restaurants we have experienced. Sublime sushi. Great service. Later, the locals confirmed our "choice" among the many great restaurants in Jackson. And Nikai made the rain go away.
