Nikkei Bar and Restaurant
The team from Tokyo Bird in Surry Hills are excited to bring Nikkei to Sydney this year, around the corner from us on Commonwealth Street in the space that was most recently Argentinean tapas bar Bodega. It’s a serendipitous coming together of our Japanese approach with Bodega’s Latin American legacy.
Nikkei will feature Japanese-Peruvian styled share plates alongside a 40-strong wine list and Peruvian and Japanese-inspired cocktails.
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.
