“Finally a sushi restaurant that's all about the food!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We went to Nikko on our neighbor's recommendation. They've been going to Nikko about twice a month for years. We've been to several sushi restaurants since we moved to the area and were disappointed by all of them - until now! Nikko is our definite go-to for sushi, and anything Japanese for that matter. The rolls are creative enough so that they actually work. Other sushi restaurants overkill their rolls with too many ingredients, or the rolls are just uninteresting. Nikko has a nice variety of rolls, and they were very fresh and enjoyable. We also tried a tempura appetizer and gyoza, and both were perfectly done and tasty. The sashimi was very fresh and nicely presented, without getting overly fancy. They also have a full bar, although we like NJ's BYOB concept. Even so, the cost was not high at all. Overall, it was a solid meal. We will be back, probably often.

“A taste of japan in NJ”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nikko has great creative rolls served in a delightful atmosphere with wait staff dressed in traditional Japanese costumes. Ideal for a business lunch. The sushi is so so but the rolls are really great

“Terrific sushi and recommendations from weekly visitors”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We come here every week because the sushi is so good. Some of our favorite appetizers are jalapeno yellowtail, bronzini tiradito, tuna tartar, naruto, and for those who like peanut sauce, honey island. The sushi is fresh and delicious, especially the yellowtail and blue fin toro (when they have it). We're not as crazy about the plain spicy rolls here, like spicy tuna and spicy yellowtail, but spicy fish combination rolls are amazing -- I think they may use a different kind of spicy sauce in these -- like the mango roll (spicy salmon with mango), volcano roll, and momichi (spicy tuna with lotus root on top). We never order the cooked dishes so I can't comment on them.

Noise level ranges from quiet to noisy, depending on the day. The space is not large so one loud group can set the tone. Service goes along with how crowded it is, ranging from quick to slow. There can be a wait for a table on weekend evenings. The decor is casual but attractive (I'm not sure which restaurant is in the trip advisor picture, but not this one).
