Great Sushi, they cancelled my Open Table reservation but served us any ways, didn't get my points, which I thought was weird. There was some funny things happening with large table, hard to explain, and I won't bother going into detail but I figured it...More

Staff is friendly but the food is average. I have definitely paid less for better sushi but the atmosphere is what you are paying for, You can have a great time with friends and there is a dance floor there.

I LOVE THE FOOD, they have the best sushi. The owner seems nice, but appears to only mingle with certain guest.

I was brought here by friends on a visit to town. The crunchy roll (I believe that's what it's called) was outstanding. I loved the atmosphere and scene. Would definitely return here. It's worth it!

My husband and I have been here several times. While we enjoy the atmosphere, the sushi can be hit or miss. The first time we came it was incredibly delicious, but the following time it was not our favorite. We will try again for sure,...More

Nikko Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar has a high energy atmosphere with a contemporary style. We are known for inventive, excellent, award winning sushi as well as the finest modern Japanese cuisine. Nikko has the feel of a upscale New York city restaurant with the promise to be hot and sexy. We have an assortment of over 300 bottles of fine wines as well as a full service bar. We feature a large private dining room with a full projection screen for company events or any other special occasion. Joannas welcoming personality with feather boa and trademark cowboy hat with tambourine overwhelms guests with "Sushi Love" when sake bombs are requested.
