Very nice food for all of us with special mention to the Bento Box.
Service was friendly but a bit hit and miss with regard to timeliness.
Owner was a bit over bearing as he asked how we were 3 times in addition to our waitress asking 3 times as well.
Place is popular and very busy so book to avoid disappointment.
Cocktails not the best.

Excellent experience, location in Holetown is easily accessible, atmosphere of the restaurant is very good. Service was prompt and efficient but with plenty of smiles and genuine desire to please. Food was of a very high standard, the best we experienced in an 8 night stay in Barbados and dining out every evening. Wide choice of menu items with wine list not over priced. Will definitely return in 2019. Mark and Sally

For our 58th wedding anniversary, of course we returned to Nishi, One final special evening, before we say a last goodbye. Thank you for years of happy memories, great dining, in a lovely atmosphere. We will miss dining here on special occasions, it's always been our "Go to" place, and has never disappointed.
Paul and the staff have always looked after us, nothing was ever too much trouble, and the food is always delicious, beautifully prepared and presented.
We dined here with our son last week too, who raved over the Anjou pear and rocket starter, saying it was the best appetizer he'd ever tasted!
So THANK YOU Nishi -- you've given us so many happy memories of lovely dinners out --- we will Miss you Greatly.

We have been before & loved it so I booked for the first night. No disappointed.
We sat upstairs which is nicely air conditioned. I choose the mixed Dimsum & shrimp Thai curry. Wow absolutely loved both dishes. The flavours of the starters were amazing each one different &’the curry was full of big shrimps. We don’t usually do pudding so can’t comment.
The owner wonders around making sure all is good and service runs well. At the end of the week I think this was probably my best meal

Lovely, tastefully decorated restaurant with an eclectic menu. Owner introduced himself and told us about his previous employment with cruise ships. He brought his broad assortment of culinary delights to his restaurant. If you can’t find something on this menu that appeals to you, than you simply must not like food. Service was excellent, prices were well worth the quality and the excellent preparation. My #1 restaurant suggestion if you’re staying in the Holetown area. Reason I deducted a star in rating was we were a little put off by the hostess when we told her we had no reservation. This was at 6p on a Wednesday evening and the restaurant was anything but crowded.
