Such a unique dining experience-- loved watching the sushi being made in front of us. We ate here twice during our relatively short stay because it was so good!

The food was very good. Couldn't find many reviews. So we didn't know what to expect. This is a sushi bar only restaurant where as many chairs as possible are crowded around the bar. I had read that this was a chef experience type of setting. It was anything but. The chef barely looked up and seemed stressed and upset the entire time. He did look up once and ask how the couple to my left were doing. He also gave us extra portions of sashimi when he ran out of one type of fish. It was an overall tense and uncomfortable situation. Might go back someday.

We stayed at Cheeca Lodge and had the sushi of Nikai Sushi at the bar of the hotel. This way the kids could have pizza. The sushi really was excellent. It melted on your tongue. I have eaten a lot of this stuff, but this was great. Special thanks to Emily from Peru. She made the evening special with her great service. Thanks.
