I've been going to Nakashima for a few years. I've always found it a pleasant place to go. The food has remained good yet arguably expensive. I ate there tonight though and the restaurant, which has challenges drawing customers mid-week, put in place a new...More

I ordered a sushi and sashimi combination. Very nice variety of fishes, great to share if you are not a complete sushi fanatic like me. Good value for money and service despite of a very humble decoration. Hi

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends of our son. It was great for lunch. We both had bento boxes-mine was pork and my wife's was chicken teriyaki. They were tasty as were the accompaniments-the miso soup, salmon sushi, rice etc. great value, especially...More

I first stumbled on this place about 5 years ago and introduced many friends to it. They all loved it - cheap as chips, fresh, simple and hidden. In the past 2 visits things have deteriorated. Last visit was stringy sashimi that was barely chewable....More
