Certainly one of the best Japanese restaurant in Santiago. Don’t be deceived by the head waiter friendly welcome with a drug dealer dress sense which unfortunately, does not reflect the delicious food and attentive service.
I order online using WhatsApp +56 9 5471 2849 in April 2021, when Santiago was under quarantine. The delivery was fast and the food arrived warm in eco-friendly containers. The Nasu Dengaku (eggplant sliced in half, scored and brushed with a sweet and savory miso...glaze) was truly the original recipe I tasted in Japan. The Wakame Salad was fresh and equally tasty as is in Japan. Katsu Don (PORK CUTLET AND EGG RICE BOWL) was crunchy and sour-sweet as is in Japan. On the Chilean mad twist, I order the Gyosas de Cochayuyo (A tipical Chilean seaweed) and Papaya (s a melon-like fruit, having Chile in the north of the country the sweetest and smallest version of the multiples papaya trees). The combination of these Gyozas with the explosion of Ponzu sauce is simply a must. Everyone should try this!More
I went twice and I love it! I would classify this restaurant as fusion Japanese cuisine: however, the recipes are exquisite with fresh good quality products. I would recommend it without hesitation and I believe the price it totally worth it! A must!
We have had sushi all over the world (Lima, San Francisco, Honolulu, etc.) and truly appreciate freshness, as well as inventiveness. This was on a whole new level. My husband is definitely the more adventuresome eater of the two of us, and he said, "just...about every piece I had, I would have said at any other restaurant, that it was the best piece of sushi I'd had all night". He had omakase, while I ordered a few favorite pieces, and we were both in heaven. We had never had unagi with foie gras and we were just blown away by the decadence of it. Apparently, in Santiago, it's "common" to have foie gras with sushi, but it's definitely not in the US. Service was fantastic, being friendly, fast and accurate.More
Best Japanese in town ! Fantastic food , various options, some are fusion food as the chef is half Chilean half Japanese ! I would recommend to sit at the bar to have the opportunity to discuss the menu with team while they are preparing...it ! Very fresh and no cheese cream ( which is a bad habit here in Santiago ) although a bit pricey ...! Waitress is not very friendly , would even say not smiley and bossy ! As this is one of the best in town ... always fully packed ! Make sure to book in advance !More
I haven't had a single bite of cream cheese both of the times that I've eaten at Naoki. Amazing sushi, and sashimi. Their miso soup is good and they have lots of fun appetizer and sake options. Great for a date night.
