Been here many times and never disappointed. Love to sit in the tatami room. Sushi is fresh and delicious. And great non-fish options too, for my daughters.

Freshest Seafood in the Morris County area. I have been coming to Nikko's for over 10 years. Their fish is the freshest and ask for Eddie at the Sushi Bar to make a suggestion and you will be served delights that are not on the menu. The service and fish are the best along with the price. Once you go... More

After traveling for the las 17 years several times to Japan I cab detect what is traditional or originally Japanese or what is a massive consumable offering. This is like being in Tokyo, Sapporo, or Kyoto. Same ingredients, same hospitality, same attention to the details. A real Japanese restaurant in NJ. Try it!

Lunch today. Giant clam, ocean trout, uni, live scallop, and a spicy yellowtail hand roll. What could be better? Great cold saki does the trick! Have found nowhere better in NYC.

Came here with a colleague for lunch. We were very happy. I have worked in the area for eight years and driven by this establishment many many times and it never occurred to me that I should go in and enjoy a meal. I was in the mood of trying some sukiyaki today and found out this restaurant serves that.... More

I went here for a dinner as it's close to the hotel I'm staying in. The place is run by Chinese, not Japanese. I ordered sushi/sashimi combo. The quality was ok, not top s well as the variety and size if the cuts. Overall ok, but not top...

Dined here for an anniversary lunch with the hubby. This place just celebrated their 25th year in business and that is no surprise! We sit at the sushi bar and watch the magic. Plus get a few small extras there. Fresh and always delicious! Plus creative presentation tops it off!

This place is awesome, always fresh seafood! Usually Chinese run Japanese restaurant is just not as authentic or good as one that is run by Japanese owner/chef, but this place is really an exception to the rule!

We went to Nikko Japanese Restaurant for a special occasion. We went in with good spirits but our dinner was ruined by the waitress who served us. It all started when the waitress took our order for drinks. We all requested for water and she was obviously was not happy with that. We figure that she was unhappy because she... More
