My husband and I visited Nishi Restaurant over the Easter weekend. We were initially impressed by the ambience and hospitality of the owner. The quality of the japanese menu items was also excellent. However, we had the displeasure of being served by a waitress who repeatedly questioned our menu choices. My husband and I ordered 2 sushi rolls, a shrimp... More

With such an eclectic menu and range of diners this restaurant is a must. We were welcomed by the same waitress as last year and it wasn't long before the owner came to say 'hello'. We chose the courtyard to dine which has a nice ambience and is very prettily decorated. Great food and good service.

We dined upstairs in the sushi bar which was great as it had air-conditioning. The staff were very friendly and attentive, I cannot fault the service. As we have not eaten sushi before the owner Paul was very helpful in explaining the menu to us and recommending various dishes. The food was absolutely awesome, this has got to be one... More

We visited nishi twice on our visit and on the second time we listened to the live music on a Friday night. I can't recommend this place highly enough, the maki rolls are incredible!!!
