I've visited Nippon Inn more times than I can even remember with family and friends and it's perfect for everyone. When I came home from visiting Japan I ate here for a few days solid afterwards to ease me back into not being in Japan. The service is always amazing and fast too and the food is absolutely perfect.

This place was great, the service was friendly and really quick! The food was really good! Had tempura, meat skewers and maki and they were all fantastic. Will definitely come back to this place whenever we are in the area. The price was also very reasonable! :)

We came on a whim. My wife is Japanese and so often 'Japanese' restaurants in the U.K. are a let down for her. Not so with Nippon Inn. We were both really impressed with the quality of food and service. It's very reasonably priced and everything we ate was spot on. The team made a real fuss of our daughter,... More

My partner and I decided to go and eat as we had heard so much about it, and we were not disappointed. The food was absolute amazing!! The sushi was sublime and tasted very fresh, so much so that I had a four portions. Plan on heading back this month for a mini celebration and I'm really looking forward to... More

This is our local sushi restaurant and it's actually ok. The offer is a bit limited but it's quite authentic and reasonably priced. The decor is basic but the restaurant is popular with the local Japanese students so advisable to book. They offer all the usual sushi, maki rolls etc but nothing too exotic. Worth a visit.

Thank PeterCharon
