The menu features plenty of sushi and Japanese entrees, such as spicy hamachi hand rolls packed with yellowtail, scallops, and chili sauce ($5.50), ramen dotted with sliced beef and vegetables ($12.25), and seared wasabi salmon topped with garlic guacamole ($13.75).
Traditional meets contemporary at Nishiki Sushi: Chefs concoct classic sashimi and nigiri from fresh seafood, such as yellowtail, scallops, and freshwater eel, and they’ve also whipped up more than three dozen innovative specialty rolls. For instance, the Buddha roll has soft-shell-crab tempura wrapped into a tight spool and drizzled with a duet of homemade sauces. The Treasure roll adds a Southern twist—it has barbecue sauce splashed across scallops and comes served on top of a William Faulkner novel. The kitchen team also prepares what they call "Japanese comfort food"—entrees such as ramen noodles, chicken teriyaki, and unagi don, a barbecued freshwater-eel dish.
The service and the servers are great … the chefs always have something new up their sleeves that's not on the menu.Leena N., Yelp, 4/17/11

“Ask the server for recommendations. We had great rolls because we ordered what she recommended. Edamame is better sauteed.”
