My family and I visited Islamorda in August 2017, and Nikai happened to be situated within our hotel, the Cheeca Lodge. Chef Molina created amazing, inventive traditional and fusion plates for the omakase (chef's choice) sushi dinners my mother and I ordered. We both have...More

Nikki has the freshest and most unique sushi i have ever had. They use the best quality fish and you can truly taste the difference. They also have an outdoor patio that overlooks the water and provides a beautiful view.

Wonderful sushi, wonderful staff! They gladly did custom rolls for us and everything we had was perfect, fresh and, for the place, not so hugely overpriced like many places. Our next visit... we're doing the sushi chef's tasting menu! We can't say enough positive things...More

but, the support staff, especially the hostess, is often unprofessional, nowhere to be found and not ready to assist seating. The chefs are impeccable; servers, also. Ideal to catch them when they're ready to seat customers.

One of 3 main restaurants at Cheeca Lodge. While the menu is not large, all dishes I tried were delicious, with excellent presentation. Restaurant has a great view.

High class, fresh fish, chef was knowledgeable, talented, but a little aloof. Prices were reasonable as well.
