“Best sushi in Nashville”

I moved from New York four years ago and missed good sushi. Friends would recommend places but all disappointed me until Ninki moved in. The sushi is drop dead awesome. Super fresh fish gorgeously presented. Creative rolls like the Butterfly Roll made with sweet scallops and smoky bonito, and the Nashville Roll with eel, avocado and strawberries (yes, i know it sounds weird. trust me it's not!) are swoon-worthy. I brought another NY transplant here, and she agreed. No other sushi place in Nashville comes close! The place is usually hopping, so others have discovered it. You won't have to wait for a table though. It's quite large. I can't say I'm a fan of the dark, neon-y sports bar decor, but who cares when the food's so good?

Ninki has all the typical things you would expect of a Japanese steakhouse. Their service is better than most and the half price sushi menu is great! If felt more family owned than the standard Japanese steakhouse chains. I will definitely go here again!

outside looks like a quick in and out, but inside it was very nice... we dropped in for lunch on a Saturday, please with the lunch special prices... had bento boxes and a noodle dish and some sushi... ALL of it was good and the service was great!

A really great Japanese restaurant that has good traditional and exciting fushion foods. The sushi was the best I've had in the States- far better than any places in NYC or LA. They changed their menu (their fois gras (flambe) was really amazing, but they took it off the menu), but kept most of my favorites. Everything I tried was really good... and I've been there about 12 times since they opened. Back in August, I had 4 meals there in two days. Every single time, they have been amazing. Their lunch, for the price, is one of the best deals in town!

From the freshest and prettiest rolls to the Hibachi & teriyaki items, Ninki's food is delicious! Also has a few Korean dishes as well as some unique asian offerings. Go at lunch for the best deals and/or take advantage of the 1/2 price sushi menu with lots of options.
