We had a birthday celebration at Nagisa and could not have been happier. It is a popular Japanese restaurant out on the Newcastle boardwalk with a broad range of options even for those who don't like the raw stuff. Special mention must go to their Japanese beer selection too...pretty impressive. Love it, highly recommend it for a great night out... More

We managed to get a table, as we walked past. The tasting menu was superb. Everything was presented beautifully and flavours were superb. Cocktails are fantastic!

Had dinner here during our stay in Newcastle. Booked our table last minute at the teppanyaki bar. Delicious and quick food. We had the beef selection and scallops for entree. Highly recommend!

Simply oustanding food, presentation and service of as authentic a Japanese experience as you will get in Newcastle. The staff make you feel at home and no request goes unsatisfied. The last 2 times I've been there we've had their tasting menu with matching wines and sakes. The seafood is all exceptional quality and freshness and the dishes are as... More

I've eaten here a few times and had food from udon and eel to fusion lamb cutlets. It has all been great, and it's great to back every now and again just to have something different. So far I haven't tried the teppanyaki....

Great cocktails. Amazing selection of beers. Best agedashi tofu we've ever had! The kara age was delicious and the sashimi very fresh. Service very professional and helpful.

We wanted a quick lunch so that our parking meter would not expire. The service was quick with Japanese beer as well. The bento box servings was large and delicious. Definitely a recommended place to eat if you are around the area.

Great food but the service is absolutely terrible. Made us wait for a table that was free and gave us the excuse the table wasn't ready. They did nothing else to the table.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your Nagisa experience. We're very sorry the explanation provided to you for waiting was not clear. Nagisa has a small kitchen, and as such we must be vigilant on the numbers of diners that we can accommodate efficiently. Although tables may appear available, they can be reserved or they... More

Service was pretty substandard here and the food was very disappointing. My 'udon' noodles weren't udon at all and they were all stuck together in clumps. Beer was ok but kind of overpriced.

Thank RoadToErudition
gkp2202, Public Relations Manager at Nagisa, responded to this review

Hello. Thank you for your feedback. We are a little puzzled though, we do not offer udon noodles on our current menu and haven't done so for some time. Perhaps you were referring to our 'ramen' noodles? These do have a tendency to stick together if not mixed properly. We invite all our customers to inform us of any issues... More
