Just next to the Theatre Royal, the staff are geared for quick service before a performance. Japanese food plus a bit more of Asia. Good service and selection of wines to complement dishes. Into theatre in good time!!

I'd never had Japanese cuisine before so I was a little tentative about this place, especially as we were a large group and forced to eat off the set menu. However, my worries were completely unjustified the place was amazing. The set menu had plenty...More

Fantastic Food! We had a selection of the Otsumami which was perfect for a light lunch. Personal favourite were the sirloin steak skewers.

Description
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.
