Reviewed today NEW via mobile

I thoroughly enjoyed Nippon Kitchen. I thought the sushi platter selection was good, and good value, and everything was fresh. I also ordered a noodle bowl, which, if not the greatest depth of flavour, was nice, and no MSG, unlike some other places. The service we had was good. Ambience was a bit crowded. Not best choice for kids or... More

I visited Nippon Kitchen with my partner and friends today. We were very well looked after by the staff who were really welcoming and pleasant. It was so difficult deciding what to eat as everything on the menu sounded amazing. Myself and two friends ordered bento boxes and my partner a katsu curry. We also ordered a few sides of... More

We were a party of 4 that ate here for dinner. We had a shared starter of sushi (20 pieces) which was adequate then we all had a main dish. We all enjoyed our meal and would return again.

I have been visiting this restaurant for a long time now, my favourite dish being the chicken skewers and the Katsu chicken after being advised that this was halal which tastes amazing but after eating out there with friends for a year I am now finding out from the staff at Nippon Kitchen that this isn't the case as the...

Hi, firstly please accept my sincere apologies. The waitress that you spoke to you gave you incorrect information. Our chicken is Halal and is in no way cooked with other non halal meat. This would be against our food hygiene rules. I believe that you have also posted on Facebook (Abirah?), I have privately messaged you on Facebook to discuss... More

Had a very nice lunch at Nippon Kitchen today, I would certainly visit again. Staff were very helpful and friendly. I was a little disappointed the 10 piece sushi selection from the lunch menu did not include any fish/sashimi pieces, but it was still very tasty!

The food was nice and it's generally good value for money. No problems with this at all. The service really let the place down, though. The waitress who served us was well out of order and pretty much made sure I won't be back here again.

Dear DannyGlasgow1967, firstly thank you for taking the time to write your review of Nippon Kitchen. It pleases me to read that you felt our food was nice and good value for money, however I am extremely disappointed that my business has let you down with "Dreadful Service". At Nippon Kitchen I take pride in providing an overall dinning experience... More

A great Japanese restaurant offering some excellent food dishes, with great service in nice surroundings. The building looks like an old bank inside, and have been well maintained to offer a nice atmosphere. It was busy when we visited but got seated quickly and the atmosphere was very good. The menu offer quite a lot of choices, with each dish... More

I used to go there every Sunday night with some friends. I absolutely loved the food. It was very good and mid-range price. The place is not exceptional and the service either but the food definitely worth it.

Goof food, but the service was a wee bit poor and the prices too high. I wouldn't recommend the place wholeheartedly.
