Attended with the family on Friday night. Expensive meal but worth it. Had the wagu beef which was exceptional. Will go again

We had visited this restaurant some 2 years ago & decided that a return visit was essential after all of this time. The lunch crowd was was staring to build up putting some pressure on the kitchen & the staff, but this was not to be.
The service at all times was very attentive right from the beginning, the issuing of the menus, water being poured & the taking of our drink order.
our entree of 6 tempura prawns was share between the both of us, served in individual wooden boxes of 2 prawns in each box.
These large fresh prawns were a delight to consume with the addition of a dipping sauce & the crisp tempura batter.
The Benito box of Tempura prawns, Teriyki chicken, Gyoza, Sashimi, Edam beans, rice & salad was an udder delight of fresh ingredients, the salmon & Kingfish Sashimi a standout.
For the main i selected the chilli pork Ramen that consisted of noddles in pork broth, floating onto of the broth was the 16 hour cooked Chashu pork, bean sprouts, shallots, black garlic oil & half an egg, served with a bowl of chilli paste.
The first mouth full of this Ramen was absolutely fabulous, the flavours of this dish were incredible, the pork was so tender & the pork broth a delight to consume.
our wine service was almost faultless, our glasses were topped up on a regular basis together with our water glass, something that does not happen often in most restaurants.
For dessert we chose the Yozu sorbet, a native fruit of Japan was served in a traditional wooden box, was excellent.
the Miso caramel ice cream had wonderful flavour of the caramel that was a standout.
to finish the meal we were served traditonal Japanese tea

My wife and I visited Nagisa for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was exemplary, and the staff very attentive. The cost, for what we ate and drank was very reasonable. Would easily recommend this restaurant to any lover of Japanese cuisine!

This is a little gem, surrounded by overpriced hotels/restaurants. The service was a little slow at times, but they were helpful when needed. Started with sushi, very well prepped, very fresh produce. We had the lamb and fish, absolutely amazing. Followed by some Japanese whiskey, what’s to complain about. Highly recommend.
