“Good standby sushi joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

We often order from here. It is reliably good and consistent. The kids like it. Not much innovative but for a place close to our house that is not too expensive it is good. You have to pay extra like many places to get the wild salmon rather than farmed salmon that is causing so many environmental problems (see biologist Alexandra Morton's blog). Also the markup for brown rice is too much. I like getting the trays for a family, we just bring our Tupperware down.

“gone downhill”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

I used to order delivery from here pretty regularly. Their Nabayaki Udon was always my favourite and the prices were reasonable. Unfortunately, the last two times I ordered from Nikkyu the sushi was less than fresh and unusually fishy smelling. Sadly, if they are sending out obviously funky fish, I lose my faith in the freshness of their other items.

Will eat there if desperate for food and delivery. Otherwise eat raw fish somewhere else!
