Dined in Nishi whilst on the island. Food was excellent as was the service. Paul, one of the owners, came to talk to us and was very charming. Lovely place to eat and lovely people.

Went there with my two teenage sons. The food was really good - maybe the best we had on our trip. Excellent service in a very nice courtyard setting.

Stopped by here last week (September 2017) for dinner. Very good sushi but I ended up getting the Lionfish of all things. Let me say, they made a difficult fish into an amazing meal. My wife got the sushi and it was also very tasty!...More

Amazing food and attentive service. Sushi to die for and the Pie and Chips just gorgeous. Paul (the boss) is a cracking guy with many stories to tell of his wide and varied travels. A thoroughly excellent night out!

Upstairs is busiest and caters for all, including families. It's air conditioned & you can watch the sushi chefs prepare the dishes. Downstairs room is a bit more cosy and isn't always used if there's still room upstairs... More
