Great place if you are hungry for a variety of Sushi and Japanese food. The price is reasonable and they keep filling the plates. Very casual and good food!

I would eat here 2 or 3 times a week. Mr. Kim and the other 2 chefs always made me feel welcome at the sushi bar. Mr. Kim would give me not only the usual sushi staples, but many unusual items I had never heard of before. I was never disappointed.

I have been a regular here for the las 4 years. Their lunch buffet for 12.95 is awesome. It has something for everyone on the sushi spectrum. The buffet includes raw, cooked and a variety of creative rolls. There is a light non-sushi bar as well. After you are done with the sushi, try one of the fried plantains. Just the right amount of sweet to top off the meal.

Lunch, Great! Dinner- read someone else's review...

Niko Japanese Restaurant is a Korean owned Sushi restaurant that churns out an excellent lunch buffet.

As an employee of a Japanese company with numerous trips to Japan, I know my Sushi. Traditional Japanese sushi, while very high in quality, is very blase' for most Round-eyes.

Niko is a great place to satisfy your Sushi Joneses! Plenty of food, high quality, extremely large variety, raw, cooked, vegetarian maki. There rolls are very creative and include your basic missionary rolls and the exotic rolls with all sorts of sauces, like a dragon roll, dynamite roll, all the designer stuff. They also include small pieces nigiri sushi for the traditionalist that are easy to pop into your mouth.

Included in the buffet is a small hot food bar with bulgogi, pot stickers, chicken wings, tempura vegtables and a tiny salad bar. Oddly enough, there is not a big spread of Kimchi, which I love.

I can see the 4 meatballs ratings but based upon the $12.95 price, it rates a 5 with me!

More Wasabi!!!

This is a good restaurant. What I love about Niko is that the food is tasty, the prices are good, the staff is friendly, and it has a very nice atmosphere.

It's not an extremely fancy place, the style is more mid-level and is perfect for an enjoyable relaxing night out. Recommended highly!
