I came here with 3 friends on a recommendation and we all absolutely loved the place. 2 of them went for the normal menu (Thai Green Curry) and me and one other had the sushi (I had the Godzilla) and all the dishes were amazing....More

This was our first time in Barbados and we are a family of foodies, so looking forward to some wonderful culinary experiences. We found many restaurants along the West coast had similar menus. Expensive and lacking much imagination, although all of good quality. Nishi is...More

The restaurant has a nice setting. However when we arrived the staff just looked at us and walked passed. When we were eventually seated the waiter didn't come over, we had to wave. The sushi is nice but very expensive.

I have given this a lot of thought and have left a 4 star review rather than 5, purely down to value for money. The food is great, as is the service. So there is no doubt it’s top quality. Some of the food (the...More

Great food, sushi was first class and menu catered for all tastes. Not cheap but worth it. Thanks to Chris and his team for looking after us so well.

My wife and daughter loved this restaurant and the food, while I felt more reserved about it. The atmosphere in the courtyard was ok, though the colour scheme is a little uninviting. My daughter loved all 3 of her courses and my wife 2 out...More
