I m spending my vacation in Mexico with my boy friend We aren't a big fans of Mexican cuisine so we decided to spend our last meal of the year in this Japanese restaurant. Most of the review sounded good so we decided to get in. It was a fixed menu( I do understand for New Year's Eve) and it... More

I have two experiences with Nikkori. The first, we ate there and ordered both some sushi and some fried noodles. The noodles were undistinguishable from ramen noodle packets, and the sushi was less than average. They also didn't provide any wasabi? The service was terrible. We actually had to walk over to the server to get his attention, and even... More

The food was different than that we asked for...I mean it wasn't that the manu said...the taste of the sushi was regular...but honestly the service was terrible, employees hanging around they don't care about us and also they make a mistake and charge more than the actual amount...

I usually give out very detailed reviews but I won't even spend time on this one. The food tasted terrible. I had 10-12 nigiri sushi and the rice was cold... the salmon was almost yellow and I could tell it was frozen... the tuna was also frozen and was tasteless... The maki sushi tasted bland... I could not tell the... More

We were greeted by blank stares of the staff when we entered. Our drinks & miso soup took at least 15 min to come out. We ordered 5 different types of rolls, which were 10 rolls per plate and nothing special. One server was drinking beer behind the counter and another was on her phone for at least 10 min.... More

Went here last night with friends. Food was average. Poor service and unattentive waiters. Asked for a drink of vodka and soda and was told there was no bartender. They were able to pour 3 glasses of wine. Will not go back here.

Used to love Nikkori, but the place has taken a dive. Not sure if they have new management or a new chef, but something has gone bad. Not a smile in the place. Completely miserable people. No welcome. No recommendations. Many of the items on the menu, they dont have. Including the horrible kids meal options. Had the fish -... More

I've never had sushi in Mexico and did not have high expectations when I found Nikkori on Google Maps. All I wanted was something "decent" and when I received the two rolls I ordered, I was very pleasantly surprised. First, the portion sizes surprised me. I was expecting something smaller (which I was totally fine with) but received enough food... More
