THis place is great! Food is fresh and well presented. They give you a bowl of mussels free before your entree. On'y drawback is it's a small place and no reservations. Might have to wait! Oh and it's BYOB!!!!

Being a frequent customer I must say Nizi is one of the best Sushi restaurant in the area. With a large selection and great quality of their food, they have achieved to become another great restaurant in Rutherford. And yes the place is small and crowded but it is worth it!

I really like their lunch bento box options. It's a great value for the amount of food.They are BYOB and it's very small inside so it gets crowded very quickly. The staff is super accommodating and always friendly. It's a good option for lunch or dinner when you're in the mood for Japanese.

For your typical Americanized sushi experience this place will not disappoint. If you dine in they'll typically offer you a free small bowl of mussels. For birthdays the staff seems to enjoy having a bit of fun too. It's BYOB and there is a store across the street that sells beer, liquor and wine. I generally get takeout but on... More

This is my favorite place to eat japanese food. It is small, clean, good food and excellent service! The outside appearance can be misleading, you must go in and eat. Very busy = Fresh food. plan ahead.

This place is a tiny hole in the wall in Rutherford, and it has the best sushi! The people who work there are also super friendly and my friend and I go there about once a week. They also deliver! The only bad thing is that they're closed from 3-5pm everyday and closed on Monday.

You have to arrive early to get a table so you don't have to wait over 1 hour to get in! We come here frequently. They bring you steamed muscle appetizer that is no charge. If you want to watch your carbs try the Nizi cucumber roll with no crab and the hand roll with no rice. I also like... More
