This restaurant is a must when visiting Barbados. The food is excellent especially the sushi and Thai Green Shrimp is our favorite!! Tried all the top restaurants on the island during our 12 night vacation. We were so impressed we went twice!!

We found this restaurant through the local leaflets that they give to tourists. The food at our hotel was ok, but we longed for a special meal out. As we had spent ten years in Japan, the prospect of sashimi and tempura was too great a chance to miss.

We were not disappointed. The whole experience was excellent. The restaurant was very atmospheric. The staff were superb and so friendly. The owner was also on hand and spent time at each table, chatting to us about Barbados( and in our case the Japanese GP) ensuring we all felt part of a special evening.

The quality of the food was superb. The nigiri was the best we have had outside Japan. The maki rolls were a delight (crouching tiger was awesome) and the tempura delicious.

This is not a cheap place to eat, ( the miso soup was £8,!) but you get what you pay for, plus a whole lot more.

Highly recommended and we may well go back before we leave,for the UK.

After after eating here ourselves a little while ago and having a truly delicious and wonderful meal we have been recommending Nishi to several of our friends and guests travelling onward or overnighting in Barbados. Everyone has come back with great reviews and seems to have enjoyed this place as much as we did!
Do try the miso soup, it is one of the best I have had, umm my mouth is watering just thinking about it. Lots of delicate flavours and stunning presentation of the food.
The cocktails are great too, give a 'Neils Long Shot' with Hendrik's a go after dinner!

This was my first time at Nishi and i must say it was a great experience. Great atmosphere and service. It was also my first time trying sushi and the advice was greatly appreciated from the waitress. I would go again for sure.
