We go here every year with high expectations and are NEVER disappointed! The fish is always fresh and they have lots of creative sushi dishes. I would order whatever the waiter recommends.

We had a pretty large group (8) for my first visit to Nick-San and we were a bit late for our reservation. And after a long wait they stuffed us in the back corner of the restaurant. So our start was not optimal and it...More

I am a tough customer when it comes to sushi. Yes this is not cheap. Do not go if you are wanting a California roll. But if you are wanting UNBELIEVABLE fresh fish creativily presented, this is your place. Fresh fish in a truffle oil...More
