The staff at Nishi made a special birthday celebration even more special with their excellent and friendly service.

The food was delicious and very well presented.

This is a great place for an intimate dinner for two or a group outing.

This restaurant is a definite must and should repeatedly be put on your to-do list.

Returning to Barbados after being absent for almost four years, we found Nishi on top of their game. We saw some reviews in the interim indicating that the owner Paul had left things to a partner for awhile, and with some very mixed results. But Paul is back on station, he is a "can do" kind of guy, and he "did." I am a sashimi fan, and it does not get better than at Nishi.

Paul Edwards is back at Nishi and you can tell. Lured by the summer menu special, we decided to try the new Nishi. Please note that you might have to ask for the summer special menu. The good news is that this latest reinvention takes the restaurant right back to where it was back a couple years ago when Paul was at the helm. And that is a very good thing! We all opted for the Asian menu and enjoyed excellent dim sum and superb sushi. There is also a Caribbean menu featuring a wide selection of dishes. Dessert was included and the apple crisp and chocolate terrine we tried were both nicely presented and very tasty. A half bottle of wine per person is included in the extremely reasonable cost of the summer special. Service was noticeably pleasant and professional (obvious that staff has been trained). Nishi comes highly recommended by our party of 6.

ART + FOOD = NISHI. The first thing that i loved were the colours Gold and orange cushions & chairs downstairs, set intricately between REAL bamboo plants to add to that "aisian" flair. The atmosphere is so cozy, like a big DEN. Thinking that it was just below, we were then ushered upstairs by a lovely young lady. EVERYTHING is art at NISHI.....the "open air" sushi kitchen, The way they set the cutlery (((Asian style))),the well mannered,soft spoken staff....EVEYTHING!
We drank red wine and dinned on the BEST SUSHI i ever tasted. And they have a pickle ginger that they bring to you as a side.....DELISH. Thanks for making ourgirls night wonderful. xoxo

After hearing such great reviews about this restaurant, we decided to make a reservation to celebrate our 12th Anniversary.
From the first contact, booking the reservation with Paul (the owner), I was suitably impressed at the high level of customer service and attention to detail. We waited in anticipation to see whether we would be suitably impressed on the night and.......we were far from disappointed!
Paul and Steve have managed to create an amazing restaurant with all the right ingredients that makes it - in our opinion - one of the best places to dine on the island. I say this because.....
-The staff are amazing - friendly, polite, knowledgeable, excellent customer service provided.
- The restaurant is amazing - the decor, ambiance, music choices, options of dining areas - perfect!
- The food menu (what can I say.....) The options of dishes provided are varied to suit those foodies who lean towards Eurasian preferences, but still wish to combine with European and Caribbean. The fact that you are able to choose from different sections of the menu takes the dining experience up several notches. We opted for the current Re-discover Barbados menu and were pleasantly surprised at the quantity and quality of the options on offer.
- Re-Discover Barbados menu options - amazing planning, preparation, attention to detail, presentation! I cannot praise the skills of the Chef/s that created our dishes. Absolutely wonderful.
- The barman that served us knew his stuff and we were wowed by a variety of cocktails made to perfection.
There is absolutely nothing I can say negative about Nishi Restaurant - apart from the fact that we wish we owned shares, so we could eat there every night! lol.
Paul and Steve, you truly have done a fantastic job. Thank you for making our anniversary night one that we will always remember as being perfect! Please say thank you so much to your staff. Keep up the good work and see you very soon again. Olivia & Dawid.
