We had a very good meal and a bottle of wine. The price was reasonable with 50% off the food in January. However, I would never pay the full price; $5 per oyster is a bit rich for the quality of service and the surroundings.

I dined here on the recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed. This restaurant accepts bookings. Service was prompt and the food good without being overly expensive. I would definitely go back.

Beautiful restaurant in tree lined Double Bay. Sit outside on a cool night under the heaters and the fairy lights. Incredible food, great wine list, exceptional service. Will be recommending.

Niji used to be amazing before new chinese owners took over. Menu is very small now and food is what you get at any ordinary Japanese restaurant.

I came here when it first opened a few years back and the atmosphere was amazing. The cocktails, the dishes, the music. It all made for a great night out. Do not make the mistake of ordering sushi or baby rolls or anything after school...More
