“Nishi with Asian flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Nice upstairs open plan restaurant with attentive staff and conversational manager. The food was well presented with good flavours with a twist of the far east. This was good value and they were able to accomodate a group of seven of us as walk-ins without a reservation. A pleasant open air outdoor seating area for pre-dinner drinks before our table was quickly prepared and efficiently served.

“Nice but pricey for sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

Firstly the food is excellent however its not a low cost venue.

What shocked us was the price of the sashimi - 5 pieces for 45 barbados dollars or $22 usd or £15.

We had their summer special menu which was really nice but it still ended up costing about 270 bds or $180 usd.

“Best restaurant in Holetown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is quite simply the best restaurant in Holetown. It's probably the most expensive as well, but with food (and drinks) this good, you have to dish out a bit.

“Best meal by far in Holetown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Wow!! Fantastic service and amazing food. The blend of flavours were just perfect, size portions spot on. Busy but the staff were very attentive. Slightly more expensive than the others we have dined at so far BUT well worth the extra.
