implausible place! The validity of this place is really up to par with other places. The food is fresh and well prepared, a hearty meal is what I go here for.

Great food

I always bring my family to this spot. Food is always great. It's packed on weekends.

I agree. If it smells like fish, don't eat it. I have been here a million times and it has NEVER SMELLED LIKE FISH.

My sister-in-law who is from Japan recommended this place. My husband and I are often the only non-Japanese people in the whole place when we go.

If you are looking for a trendy place like RA... don't come here. The place is very low key and NOT a see-and-be-scene place. My husband and I tried Oishii after reading rave reviews and it was NASTY. Terrible. We tried Sushi King and it was decent. But nothing, and I mean NOTHING compares to Nippon. Get the Crazy, Naoki and Cajun rolls. SOOOOOOO good. Everyone we have taken there says it's the best sushi they've ever had hands down.

My sister-in-law eats from the traditional Japanese dinner menu and loves it, but I've never had it. The only cons I can think of is parking (you've got to be good in tight places or park across the street) and lack of a wine list. As in, if you want a red wine- your only choice is Kendall Jackson Merlot.



Walked into Nippon's last Mond...

Walked into Nippon's last Monday evening (10/31/2011) with a client heading towards the sushi bar and the old adage saying sprang to mind, "IF IT SMELLS FISHY DON'T EAT IT!!!", plus the fact that not one wait person or sushi chef approached us until we were on our way out the door. My client told me later that he put his hand on the glass ice box where the raw fish is displayed and it was NOT even cold! I also noticed that some of the fish in there looked very questionable, almost slimy, YUK!!!

Great prices Great Sushi Great Service

We love this tiny little sushi restaurant on Montrose. If you go at a time when there is not wait you'll be in sushi heaven. The staff is very friendly and the prices are great. I have tried several menu items and everything has been tasty and fresh.

Great place to go after an art show at 4411

Full of Euros, cultured clientele, good service, low lighting, and quaint.

I've been here at night and during the day. The sushi is always a B+. The environment is the plus with the low indoor lighting, natural sunlight, and shade on the patio. The lanterns at night are also festive.

Authentic and delicious

I've eaten at least 300 times at Nippon, and love their bento boxes and their crab puffs. The sushi is good and so is the hot sake. For the kids, there is a child plate that pairs 2 large shrimp with teriayaki chicken. Also popular with the kids is green tea or red bean ice cream or mochi (little balls of ice cream covered in a sweet rice covering). The staff and owner are kind to children.

Avoid Nippon-Service Stinks

Nippon had the worst service ever of any restaurant I have ever been to. I have never been waived off by a waitress and been told I will not come serve you when I have been waiting 15 minutes. It took 30 minutes just to get water. The only thing I had to eat was leftover food from friends who had to wait over an hour just to get their food and some orders were even forgotten. If you like to wait long periods of time and maybe even being ignored by your server, then this is the place for you
