The restaurant we were hoping to go to was full, so we thought we would try something very different for us and went to Oki-Nami. We were not disappointed. Being no expert in Japanese food, the menu seemed to have a really good variety. We...More

I love Japanese foods, so I expected a delicious dinner with my friends. I ordered spicy teriyaki chicken, but they gave me normal one rather than spicy one. I told them it's wrong, but they didn't even know what I ordered. They just put spicy...More

it is so hard to find good Japanese food and this is it at its best and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and happy to help. Outside seating in the sun and able to watch 'fringe Brighton' whilst eating.

Maybe this is a Brighton thing but bar service here was almost unbelievably slow - to the point that food arrived before our drinks!! Aside from this, quite a cool place, decent food (tho a bit over priced) and average cocktails - all told, okay...More

Very small upstairs cocktail bar with eye-watering prices, but the drinks were fab (espresso martini in particular) and service really friendly. Went on a Saturday and unsurprisingly very busy, but seemingly there's a happy hour during weekdays with cocktails at a fiver each, sounds like...More

This classically kooky, Tokyo-esque Japanese restaurant and delicatessen on the New Road in Brighton is the brainchild of acclaimed chef Mike Dodd and DJ Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim. With a minimialist, contemporary interior featuring handmade oak furniture, caliigraphy clad lanterns and an exclusive soundtrack tailor made by Cook, Oki-Nami has become a hit with local sushi connoisseurs, hipsters and Japanophiles. Located near the Theatre Royal opposite the Pavillion Gardens, Oki-Nami restaurant is renowned for its award-winning sushi; Japanese tapas; main courses such as the Suzuki Saffron sea bass served with a citrus sauce; desserts including the restaurant's famous green tea ice cream; and east-meets-west cocktails such as the Japanese Cherry Blossom Margarita.
