The same popular all-you-can-eat concept common in barbecue restaurants has also been adopted by some Japanese restaurants, including Nik Sushi. It is great for those days when you just want to stuff yourself silly without spending a fortune. Often the selection on the all-you-can-eat menu is limited, but Nik Sushi offers a better than average selection and doesn’t skimp on quality. Choose from a variety of fresh tuna, salmon, octopus, and white fish sashimi and unusual sushi rolls, like salmon with teriyaki sauce, white fish with thin slices of lime, or lightly grilled tuna and salmon with miso. Hot dishes include sautéed mushrooms, yakisoba noodles, tempura, gyoza dumplings, robata skewers, miso soup, and more. Of course you may also order from the a la carte menu, but the rodizio offers a much better value and allows you to try a greater variety of dishes. On weekends, arrive by 8:30pm to avoid long lines.
