Nikkei Bar and Restaurant
Every dish was well presented and delicious..the combination of Peruvian and Japanese flavours is amazing. The service was great, and I totally recommend to try the ceviche and chicha morada cocktail 💛
2nd visit and counting! Excellent service and the food & drinks menus speak for themselves. Special mention goes to the kingfish ceviche - hands down my favourite one in Sydney!
Delicious food leaning more towards the peruvian persuasion with japanese flavour accents, attentive and helpful service
Great food, particularly the mushroom dish that we were recommended. Cocktails are great too.
Brilliant. Outstanding. We make a point of going there every time we are in Sydney
Great vibe inside. Beautiful decor. Cool drink list. Friendly service. Peruvian food is amazing and this restaurant does the best job I've seen yet, of doing justice to the flavours and dishes. Definitely would recommend.
Loved it. Service was great, so was food, lots of non-meat options too.
Loved having dinner here for my partner's birthday. The food, drinks and service was great. Cocktails were not strong but had great, unique flavors, highly recommend the papaya even if you're not a gin lover. The food was all delicious with a great mix of different cultures - we had the kingfish ceviche, papas rellenas (like a chicken croquette) with japanese curry sauce, pork sausage with kale, beef short ribs (flavorsome, very flavorsome and might've done better with some rice on the side), and sweet and chilli corn, and dessert was a dulce de leche pudding (definitely highlight of the night!). It did take 2 hours to finish the dinner however as each dish took a while to come out and the tables were all really close to each other - hard to get out of the inside spot and makes it hard for an intimate evening, however, overall great dining experience.
Unique and well thought through Peruvian inspired food. Relaxed space and friendly service.
Came on a Wednesday night. Busy but not crowded. The food was outstanding especially the ceviches. Service was great from knowledgeable and attentive staff.
One of my favourite restaurants in australia right now. Peruvian fusion with japanese which is spot on. Great service.
What a find, absolutely stunning fit out, great service and mind blowing food.
Great restaurant with delicious food and outstanding service.
Waiter was very intuitive re: choice of wine
The service was outstanding, the team couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome and ensure we had a great dinner. From catering to dietary requirements to offering different wine options.
I was there three times within 8 days - that tells it all :-)
Great atmosphere and interesting new dishes combining the best of Japanese and Peruvian!
A delicious dinner with inventive cocktails. The only downside to the whole experience was the noise level as we were sitting next to the bar. I’d happily go back to try different dishes but would ask for a table in the main dining room.
Brilliant food. I have to say every dish is so good. I’ve taken so many people here. Totally recommend it. The noise level is very high that’s the only thing but not unbearable.
The food is so fresh, on point, interesting...chilli, sexy...DELICIOUS!!
Wait staff friendly, helpful. Always around, always delivering service.
Everything you want in a dining experience...
Beautiful food, sevi e was excellent. Our waiter was excellent, very knowledgeable on food and wine, attentive but never intrusive. Only small downside a bit noisy, but definitely going back.
This was our second visit. Everything was delicious. That ceviche is to die for, and I was tempted to lick the plate after we'd finished the beef ribs. That sauce! We will definitely be back.
Fantastic food and great value. Place is kind of noisy with kitchen next to tables.
Excellent customer service. Not a fan of some of the seafood with banana-mango mixed in but that was personal taste. Great concept well done!
This is a great restaurant. The food origins in japanese immigrants to peru and south america, produce really interesting and distinct flavor and texture combinations. great cocktails and an interesting (in a good way), wine list. have only been once, but on this experience it’s definitely worth a visit.
Great mix of flavours, delicious Peruvian cocktails and attentive service.
very attentive service, food was very nice, portion is on the small side though.
Love! The service, food, vibe, venue! 2 of us had the set menu. Every course was delicious and we had to stop ourselves from licking the plate. The Ajiro cocktail was a winner too. Looking forward to coming back.
Amazing food and cocktails!
Great menu- everything we ordered was delicious. The staff were very friendly and informative. Great fusion!
A great experience
Food was amazing
Service was brilliant
Unfortunately we were sat in front of a big group which made it really hard to have a conversation on our table, but you can’t win em all
Great Service and food was different with Peruvian and Japanese infusion
There’s a lot to like about this Nikkei Restaurant, and the team look committed to making it a lasting success.
Still bedding down and applying finishing touches, we’ll be back to check on progress!
Outstanding food, friendly & professional service with great music and atmosphere!
Great new restaurant in Surry Hills offering a delicious combo of flavours from Peruvian and Japanese cuisine. Staff were really friendly and attentive, music and ambiance was perfect and the pisco cocktails were amazing! Will definitely be back.
