I've been to several sushi places in Santiago (they really are everywhere) and this is by far the best for a delicious, casual night out. Get there before 8pm to take advantage of the happy hour and pay with cash for the 50% discount off your food. We go to the location near the Tobalaba metro and it can get quite busy on the weekends but the service has always been good. I have yet to find a spicy tuna roll in Chile but their Tuna Furay tempura roll might be the best and closest that I've found so far.

Wanted to check this place out since it was good reviews here. The sushi selection was great and very cheap if you pay cash, for some reason you get lot of discounts paying with cash. I was however expecting a restaurant and not a small sushi bar. The only had tables outside and no license to sell beer.

We ate here twice (due toTripadvisor recommendations) as a group (staying just round the corner at the Park Plaza hotel). Same feedback as others have given: tasty fresh food; quick service; decent prices. Great for a quick eat - not for a romantic meal though.

I've been to quite a few sushi restaurants in Santiago, and this is definitely one of my favorites, and for a couple reasons.
1) The price is great.
2) It offers an Ebi Cheese roll mixto, wrapped in both salmon and avocado! Yum!
3) They do gyoza right! Many other places have a weird texture to their gyoza (over cooked?), but here they're quite tasty!

I've been here quite a few times, and they're always super busy, but worth the wait!

Sushi is seemingly everywhere in Santiago these days, and for my money, NIU is by far the best value. Their menu is huge (everything from standard California rolls to a delicious ceviche roll) and with the 50% cash-debit discount, you can get a lot more sushi for your peso here than pretty much anywhere else in the city. I can only speak for the Tobalaba location, but the sushi is always fresh and well-made. I recommend sitting outside on the street if the weather is nice--it's a great atmosphere in a relatively quiet area (just a block from the Tobalaba metro station)--because the restaurant itself is adequate but pretty basic. The only downside is that service can be a little bit slow sometimes, but for the price, it's delicious!
