We booked our table via email mail from the UK. Nishi responded quickly, booking was seamless. The owner Paul initially greeted us in the bar and then took time to visit our table to chat and take a real interest. The food was magnificent. I had the volcano roll and it was one of the best meals I've eaten.......ever. if... More

We ate for the first time at Nishi, having heard good things about the place. Barbados is blessed with some really great restaurants, and we'll be adding Nishi to our favourites. The bar area seems to be something of a 'see and be seen' gathering place for the bling-meisters that clog up the island during the Christmas / New Year... More

Amazing sushi!! The lobster roll is my favourite. Bisho has a beautiful zen atmosphere, and the service is amazing. You will most likely be greeted by the owner, Paul, he is so kind :)

Very friendly venue. Food very good, particularly the sashimi. A fun venue in the heart of Holetown. Service could have been a little better but a very good evening and well worth a visit. We will be going back.

Words cannot describe my enjoyment and passion for this resteraunt. We arrived into this small boutique styled resteraunt hidden away from the main road. This is opened aired and had a great sense of Japanese tranquility. The owner made time to come around and to introduce himself to each table, a lovely man and expressed his enjoyment on meeting others... More
