Nishi's food and service are both amazing. Couple that perfection with the ambiance provided by the garden area and it is a must for any visitors and locals alike. The lobster bisque with lemon grass is to die for!

Without a doubt it is the place where they serve the best sushi on the island, however the place lacks atmosphere and could do with some interior improvements, especially upstairs

The food, service, ambience was great!!!! Management even came around the restaurant introducing himself and engaging the guests in conversation, making sure everyone was good and enjoying their food and their evening. Everything was just amazing! Can’t wait to go again.

The food and the service was excellent. Before we ate the manager came over and introduced himself and explained the menu. He was very knowledgeable and recommended his favourite dishes. The sushi was excellent. Best I had thus far.
