Took my 17 year old for an early Sunday dinner. I had the shrimp tempura with udon noodles and hot sake. Portions are huge and all the ingredients are fresh. Absolutely love the broth! This is my second visit but I will definitely be back again so I can try something else. This restaurant is small but the service and... More

This was the first restaurant we ate at in Houston way back in 2007. After moving to Houston we would frequent Nippon almost weekly when in town. After an absence from Houston of more than fours years we returned to Houston for a four day visit and ate there twice. The food was as good as ever and the service... More

it was one of our favorite places to eat, however the tempura was not cut up and what I got were enormous hunks of vegetables without much batter and very hard to eat with chop sticks or fit into sauce. the tofu soup was similarly huge chunks of tofu covered with a sauce which used to be delicious, this time...

It was my second visit at Nippon and did not disappoint. All dishes (nigiri and rolls) we have had were fresh and tasty. Service friendly and nice atmosphere. A definite place to stop for sushi lovers. A 4.5 among Houston's sushi places.

Best Japanese restaurant I've found in Houston. Good menu, staff all seem to be Japanese, as are many of the diners.

We've eaten sushi all over the world, including Japan, and this rates right up there. Great atmosphere. Decent prices. Loved it and will return!

I love a good Bento Box! At Nippon, I had the lunch Bento Box with sushi and grilled salmon. The sushi was delicious; the salmon was a little dry. Our service was good, and we sat outside on the patio, which was lovely.

I'm kind of a sushi freak, and I consider myself pretty picky when it comes to Japanese cuisine. So, after eating at Nippon, I can honestly say that I'm highly impressed! All of my fish tasted fresh, my waitress was polite and my dishes were brought out in a timely manner. Some recommendations: the Naoki roll is absolutely delicious. Chopped... More

We have eaten more than 100 Japanese restaurants worldwide (including many famous restaurants such as Iron Chef Morimoto, etc). Of all restaurants outside Japan, Nippon was one of our top 5 restaurants. We have eaten at Nippon more than any other Japanese restaurants, almost once every week or two since 1999, estimated more than 500 visits so far, literally. Yoshida... More
