Recently visited here while exploring the west coast. After reading other reviews on here we instantly became excited to get it booked and go for a meal ! I would recommend booking in advance and requesting the courtyard but the air conditioned inner seating is as eloquent and special ! The owner is very helpful and came around to introduce... More

On Steve's recommendation we had the sashimi and he was right - it was stunningly fresh and excellently presented. Really top quality. My wife had the excellent thai prawn curry to follow... More

We booked this after reading such great things on trip advisor and it was one of the best meals we had on our trip. The staff were super organised and we met the love owner - I think it was Simon - who could not do enough for us - we would have returned but we ran out of time... More

This was my first visit to Nishi, but it will not be my last. I always thought it only served sushi,how wrong I was. The service and food was excellent, from Steve one of the owners welcoming you to the waitress service. The food was delicious, even had pies.

No sea views but nice decore and comfortable seating. Separate cocktail bar serving full strength cocktails unlike some places in Holetown. Owner on site to meet and greet. Sushi of a good standard on an interesting menu. Good table service. Food tasted fresh and well cooked if slightly expensive. Recommend
