Nikkei Bar and Restaurant
Nikkei are people from Japan and their descendants that live in a foreign country. It also specifically refers to the cuisine of the Japanese-Peruvians which started more than a century ago when the first Japanese immigrated to Peru in the late 1890s, combining Japanese techniques and flavours with Peruvian produce.
We look forward to sharing Nikkei with you.

I let them know I have allergy to Garlic and Onions. My choices turned very slim. The food I could it was tasty however I'd look elsewhere if you have NoGO intolerances.
Great combinations of flavour and excellent service.
We love this place: the complex flavours of the food, the wine matched to exactly what you like and above all the fantastic service!
We had counter seats, looking into the kitchen. The service was excellent, the wines were exquisite, and the food was prepared with care and attention.
The scallops were divine.
Fresh ingredients, beautiful presentation, creative dishes, good service. I would love to go back to taste their new menu.
very interesting, explosive flavours and intelligent sommelier recommendations to go with it. Would highly recommend.
I highly recommend this restaurant for Peruvian food with a Japanese twist. I am Peruvian and I can definitely say it is absolutely amazing!! Have visited twice and it does not disappoint. We tried their spring menu and their summer menu. Cannot wait to try their autumn menu next time. You leave feeling satisfied. The flavours are all there. The oysters- OMG. And the Pisco is a must. The wait time between dishes is very good and gives you time to really enjoy each dish. They can also cater to dietary requirements. Have highly recommended it to family and friends and has not disappointed them either.
Service was great, food was lovely. Nice vibe, would definitely recommend.
Nikkei's set menu is such value for money! At only $80pp, the food felt endless and by the end of the meal everyone was extremely satisfied. Cocktails were super tasty as well
One of the things that I loved about the meal was the abundance of Persian spices and flavours throughout every single dish! Would come back when their seasonal menu rotates!
Nice, modern atmosphere, where you can actually carry on a conversation. The service is excellent. Being a Peruvian myself I had to try this fusion, knowing that it was not going to be anything like the Peruvian traditional food that I crave even in my dreams. I even prepared myself for another disappointment. However, it was such a nice surprise! The resemblance might be slim, but oh boy! the flavours are there and the creativity of the chef to mix them with the Japanese influence can only be praised. This is a fusion that works. It's food that makes you think, but you lick your fingers afterwards. The prawns in the "chupe" were extraordinary. Every single dish was a discovery expedition. Kudos to the chef, the manager (super simpático) and the waiting staff.
Such wonderful food and service yet again. I love this restaurant. I will be back.
Food was very good. The wine list is great as well with a focused selection from South America. And the service as amazing. Very warm and awesome vibe of a restaurant serving Peruvian cuisine. Amazing work. Should be hatted (but currently isn't).
Loved it! Especially the prawns and wagyu skewers, highly recommend
Unique and amazing food. Chef and team are very personable. Service is great even though it was a very busy night.
Nikkei is a fabulous restaurant! Don't be turned off by the idea of Japanese and Peruvian fusion. The reality is that there was a Japanese diaspora to South America over 100 years ago and the resulting cuisine is a perfect match. Everything on the set menu was fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The service was helpful and efficient. I'm going back to Nikkei.
Great food! It was quite generous and were already full by the time last dish came. I enjoyed it more when it was a la carte, they used to have an amazing ceviche. Oysters were to die for
Flavours will blow your mind!
Thank you Marco for bringing Peru to the plate 🥇 see u soon!
Epic set menu. Great staff & service.
Most amazing, fresh, tasty, delicious food and exceptional service. A fabulous night out. 10/10

Where should I start! Love Love Love this place!!! From the setting ; ambiance to the exquisite food. Of course the hospitality they deliver here ! So I’m already planing the next visiting while I was having dinner on the night ! Do yourself a favor and try it out !
Great value and really big servings for a set menu. I was so full at the end! Great presentation and interesting flavours.
A fantastic dining experience. Exceptional mix of flavours and well thought-out menu. Amazing drinks menu with friendly and professional staff! Can't recommend enough!
Great food and service. Will be recommending these to all friends and family
The appetisers are delicious, the main is beautiful but not filling. The dessert is nothing special, it was overwhelmed by the level of goodness of appetiser
Amazing restaurant - possible one of the best I have ever tried. The flavours were incredible and the service was perfect.
Nikkei serves ambitious yet relatable cuisine - so that your tastebuds are always happily surprised and tantalized but never shocked.
Great wine and cocktail menu to complement the modern, light and zingy flavours.
Service is of a very high level- gracious, considerate and discreet.
You’re in for a very fine experience if you book at Nikkei!
Definitely worth the visit and experience.
The food was delicious and interesting. Service was attentive. Great atmosphere.
Amazing food and vibes thanks to the Nikkei Team, we look forward to coming back
We had a fab dinner at Nikkei. What a beautiful experience, great GF substitutes which can be very hard to come by, fantastic staff, exquisite food and cocktails!
Ventilation was leaking. Needs to be fixed. Waiter moved us a bit to be out of the way and that was nice. It would
have been nicer to get a free drink or some sort of compensation
Extremely accommodating with our dietary restrictions. Wonderful, friendly service. High recommend!
Blown away - everything about our dining experience was magical. This is not a fusion restaurant, this is a menu that pays homage to the well established and historical slippage between Japanese and Peruvian cuisine. It was an incredible experience. The sommelier was particularly knowledgable and generous, the wine list matches the menu very well and the food is really special and memorable. Already recommended to many and plan on coming again :)
Lovely service, amazing food! Highly recommend!!
Dessert slightly below in terms of quality compared to other courses.
Very cool ambiance but food was nothing special. Not a lot of flavour and a lot of the dishes could be cooked at home. The corn cob with seasoning was by far the best dish in our set menu to paint a picture. Unfortunately did neither cuisine in the fusion justice on this particular occasion.
What a great place. Delicious food and drinks as well as wonderful staff. We enjoyed the set menu and can’t wait to come back again.
great place, nice and interesting food.
