“We had a table of 6...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2010

We had a table of 6 and each ordered 1 or 2 plates each. It was a ball! Great food and good drinks. I had the key lime mohito- wonderful!

“This Is Not Real Sushi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2010

We ate there last week and were extremely disappointed. First of all they did not use the proper rice for sushi. They used long grain rice, instead of short grain. It is imperative to use short grain rice because it sticks together better. Second error, they did not season the rice with the all important rice vinegar. (I was dining at Nikai with a professional chef who loves sushi and pointed out these two deficiencies to me).

The presentation was decent. The service was good. The atmosphere OK. But this was not sushi.

I should have realized that something was awry when we were seated. There was not one Japanese person working there.

I can't explain how this restaurant has gotten such good scores from fellow Trip Advisor reviewers. However, if you love real sushi, this is NOT the place for you.

“AMAZING FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

We ate here a week ago and I am still thinking of our meal. You can get the run of the mill sushi and also experiment ( octopus dumplings). The spare ribs were out of this world. A bit expensive--- but worth it. Go now!!!

“Great sushi in Jackson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2010

Fun, crowded, very hip sushi place in a non-descript location in Jackson, WY. Definitely worth a visit!
