Wonderful! – I've been to many sushi restaurants, but none as upscale as Nishino's. It's not the place for cheap sushi, but it's the place to go for "good eats"!
Great Japanese Food – Nishino is known for it's authentic Japanese dishes along with inspiring twists to this traditional cusine. Sushi (although exceptional) is not the main dish here.
Good Japanese style food can be had at Nishino.
Amateurs need not apply! – Nishino is not the place to go if large & cheap are your criteria for evaluating sushi. The sushi chef there are the real deal - extensively trained in Japan and unwilling to compromise on quality. The fish are flown in daily from Japan, Alaska, etc. - wherever it is the best and in season. Given that, the prices there are reasonable. Sushi of such quality in Japan costs well over $200 per person. If I Love Sushi does it for you, then no need to bother. But if you are seeking one of the best, then I highly recommend it. To Illustrate: the amaebi is alive and jumping until Tatsu-san prepares it right in front of your eyes. If this makes your mouth water, GO!
Overrated – I've heard how great this place is from numerous people. It also exudes an air of loftiness in its presentation. THis ain't a cheap sushi joint. The service was great actually...and kind of warm. The sushi was OK. A lot can be determined about a sushi place from a simple order: maguro and spicy tuna roll. THe maguro was fresh, but the portions were razor thin and see through. Typical of overpriced, "trendy" spots. The Spicy TUna Roll...Come on guys. YOu can do better than that...no effort. Looks identical to the QFC prepackaged rolls. Not fresh but pasty paste where the tuna should be. and rice. THats it. Nothing else added. So, needless to say, after being told how great this place was, I walked out realizing...this place ain't all that...Go to Chinoise up the street. NOw thats a good sushi spot!
