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

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

Lunch is busy, get there early and savor it. We shared the sunshine roll, spicy salmon and peppered tuna in wasabi sauce. Also the saki selection is great! Highly recommend for lunch.

Our service was extremely slow... took 45 minutes to get our rolls... Also the waitress did not look happy to service us. It was an extremely disappointing experience and we will not go back.

I have Nikko once a week for lunch. Sushi is always fresh. Lunch specials are great (smaller portion of dinner menu). Staff is well trained and courteous. They have been in a competitive restaurant area for 30+ years, so you know they are doing it right. If you are looking for Japanese food, this is the place to go.
