Best restaurant in Costa Rica so far! Got here Saturday and already have been there twice with the family. The restaurant is beautiful and The waiter and bartender, Santiago and Kennett are top notch! Loved our food each time, from the sushi rolls to the...steak. Oh and the octopus dish is awesome! Hope we can visit one more time before we leave on Saturday.More

A stylish, contemporary Japanese/Peruvian restaurant in the heart of Cape Town. Eveything about it is world class from the decor, to the service, to the ambience, to the exceptional food. A must try restaurant.

The ambiance, excellent service and magical food is what sets the place apart. We had the sushi Sundays, and it’s the best I’ve ever tasted. And I’m definitely hooked on the complimentary starter!! We will be back for the chefs set menu for dinner soon!

One of my top 5 restaurants in cape Town. No pictures needed. The services attention to detail food and flavors were all amazing. And cost wise definitely worth it compared to some more pricier venues.

An outstanding blend of flavours with high quality ingredients and outstanding service which resulted in an unforgettable meal. Highlights were the seared tuna, seared wagyu ribeye and crispy lobster banana sushi - which sounds like it shouldn’t work but absolutely does. Expect big flavours combining...the best of Japanese and Peruvian cooking, with plenty of spice available for those who enjoy it. Finally a big thank you to Zac for his outstanding service and recommendation all eveningMore

I have received rave reviews from friends who visited Nikkei Japanese Peruvian and I finally has the opportunity to dine there in March. My experience was certainly beyond my expectations. I chose the 9 course meal and I can honestly say that I was delighted...by every dish presented. From the presentation of the meals, the body of knowledge of each meal that the waiter possessed and then, finally to the tantalizing sensations that each meal provided to my palette, encompassed a truly superior dining experience.More

What an extraordinary experience! Definitely a restaurant to add to your bucket list. The food was out of this world. It was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. The waitresses were also super friendly and helpful. What impressed me further was that they knew the menu...and were able to give a detailed explanation of each and every dish. The restaurant is beautifully and uniquely furnished. We loved everything about it.More

Excellent! Honestly, for what you pay it's pretty ridiculous how great the food, service, creativity, venue, and ambience is. I've been 4 times in the last 3 months for various occasions, business and personal, and it's been excellent every time.
