“Sushi!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

I had their tuna sashimi and dagwood roll and they just melted in my mouth! No kidding! The tuna slices were so fresh and grainless. The combination of shrimp tempura, avocado, blue crab, tuna, sweet soy sauce, sesame seeds and nori was ohhhh soooo gooood!
If you ever go to the Florida Keys, you have to come to Nikai Sushi!

“Best sushi in the Keys”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

This is the best sushi I have found over the entirety of the Keys. The ingredients are insanely fresh and quality is an absolute obsession for the chefs Cy and Dana. Great variety of rolls with flavor combinations you will not find anywhere else. Sauces are made in-house and there is a gluten-free version of just about (if not all) of the dishes. Everything I've ever tried from these guys is just ridiculously good. They ruined me for average sushi.

Go, sit at the bar, and let them make you an amazing meal. Go for the omakase- you will not regret it.

“Absolutely Amazing Sushi!”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We absolutely love the sushi and the service at Nikai. We are locals, and recently took our out of town guests to Cheeca to treat them to the amazing sushi and service at Nikai. It was by far the best meal I have ever had in the Keys! The sushi was fresh, the presentation was delightfully artistic, and the service was fantastic. We let the Chef select for us his favorite sushi rolls and sashimi, and let me tell you, we were not disappointed! We now have a new favorite place to dine in the Keys!
