Review of Nuka

Reviewed 13 August 2014

Nuka is a great place for a light dinner after a day in the sun. The food menu is varied, and the drinks menu has a good variety of Sake and Shochu options. The maki list shows creativity, while still offering the stand-by original rolls.

The volume level is a bit high for a romantic dinner, but it is the perfect place to gather with a group.

Make sure to reserve, or plan to wait. The place filled up a few minutes after sunset, so plan ahead.

i recently went for my birthday with some friends......it gets packed about 6pm.....go early or go late....the sushi was ok.....not special......the butterfish misoyaki was very good a large serving ....the softshell crab was crisp and tasty......but ....i was not happy that you had to order a bowl of rice and pay for it.....this is the only place i ever paid for a bowl of white rice when the entres were rather expensive....... the big surprize was the rootbeer mochi ice cream.....i loved it.....lol

We can't say too many good things about this place. The fish is so fresh and the professional staff take so much pride in their work, we thought we were actually in Japan. It really is an incredible experience!!

Can't complain about what we ordered..shrimp tempura donburi and baked dynamite, a mix of scallops, mushrooms, and zucchini with a Parmesan topping. Delicious. Next time we'll try the sushi. The green tea ice cream, 2 scoops, was excellent.
However, restaurant is very noisy and one has to really speak loudly to be heard in conversation.
Not intimate or romantic, more of a fun night out.
