Had a really lovely experience. The staff were friendly, the food was delicious and fresh and I would definitely recommend it.
I can see what all the other reviewers are on about; this is a gorgeous place. Proper sushi. We went on New Year's Day when everywhere was shut, and all the fresh fish was in, nothing on the menu was off limits. A few more places like this and North Finchley will be the next Islington!
Delicious food, fast friendly service, will definatley be going back!! Everything was very authentic, refreshing and full of flavour!
We always enjoy Nippon Izakaya for authentic Japanese food at a reasonable price.
This is a fairly homie/ small ish restaurant but don’t let that put you down. The food is great and service even better. highly recommended
I’ve been a few times and also had take out. But this was the first time for my friend who was very impressed and said she’d definitely be returning.
I've been to Nippon Izakaya several times now and I can only think of one occassion where I had a less than outstanding food experience. Their service is strong, they don't over crowd you but when you need them they are there. The food on the menu is VERY extensive. I doubt there is someone who couldn't find several dishes they wanted to eat on the book long menu. The quality of the food itself is very good. I have never thought on all the occasions I've been that they are using sub-standard ingredients. I also absolutely love how they greet you when you enter the restaurant like a typical place of eat in Japan. It just shows the attention to detail. If you would like to see pictures of the food I ate (namely, pumpkin croquettes, duck sushi, tofu steak, and so on) have a look at my gallery on instagram @soeggcited
My fourth visit at this local restaurant. As before really enjoy the occasion. I am sure we will be back again soon..
Good food as usual but service wasn't the best this time as it was Saturday night and the bill machine broke down. Had to wait 45 mins for the bill with no explanation until I asked twice.
Really great, fresh sushi and other Japanese food here. Very extensive menu. Staff are lovely and knowledgeable and checked ingredients each time/each dish to ensure our friend with allergies was OK. Probably one of the best Japanese restaurants I have eaten in in London.
As always - vibrant ambiance, well prepared quality food, and really good value. An unexpected find that rapidly becomes a firm favourite!
I went with a different friend so we tried some new things which were all excellent, of the high quality expected from this local gem of a restaurant! Service was very attentive as usual even though they were busy on this Friday night. Highly recommend.
Freshest, most delicious sushi and great service. If you don’t like one of the fish in a dish for example, they’ll potentially swap it out for you. Some interesting dishes. Hot food also very very good.Beautifully presented. Fruit at end nice touch too. Has become my favourite local sushi house by far. Not extortionate. Really helpful staff who are not overbearing. Nice for date night as pleasant grown up ambience.Thank you for a great night as always.
I'd selfishly rather keep this North Finchley gem a secret!
Our new found treasure. We love this local restaurant....
High standard of food and service as always, the staff welcoming and friendly, great food at very reasonable prices! Highly recommend
Another good evening at Nippon I. Tasty food as always
A great local restaurant. Quality, well prepared food and really good value. Sashimi was excellent, flavoursome and thick, and beautifully presented. Prawn Gyoza and Chicken Gyoza both delicious. Scallops especially good. Don’t be fooled by the exterior; the dining here is first class.
Amazing local gem, I come here regularly and it never disappoints!
I am a regular here and adore this neighbourhood gem. The staff are attentive, the food outstanding and the value amazingly good given the quality. Highly recommend!
Excellent Japanese food. Menu not too easy to follow for English.
Wonderfu service, delicious food—highly recommend!
This really is a stunning restaurant; food is outstanding and service friendly and helpful. The true quality of a Japanese restaurant is the number of Japanese dining there, and this clearly passes the test. Authentic food and a lively but relaxed atmosphere, with attentive, knowledgeable staff. This goes to the straight to the top of our Japanese dining charts.
We’ve been there twice in 2 weeks and we love it, lovely food and service. Will def go back x
Second time dining at Nippon Izakaya, and another lovely meal! Staff are very friendly and attentive, food is fresh, amazingly presented, and great value for money. They have a great selection of maki rolls, our fave is the dragon roll. Would highly recommend for a local Japanese meal.
I have been a regular at Nippon Izakaya in North Finchley for as long as they have been in business. I have introduces and taken so many people to Nippon Izakaya, they have all had a wonderful experience, along with enjoying their tasty food too. I was told by the owner last week that their will be new additions to the menu this coming August.....I am looking forward to trying these! Honestly, I rate Nippon Izakaya very highly, it is one of my favourite restaurants. Give it a try and enjoy the great menu on offer. I am just about to book again to introduce someone New!
See you very soon
2nd time to this restaurant. Once again good food all around. The broth of our ramen was delicious. A great local restaurant. Will go again soon....
This was the second time I've eaten here, the food is amazing. It feels like you are eating in central London but being local. Fully recommended.
Lovely local restaurant. Good food fairly priced
Brilliant brilliant food, wonderfully prepared and super tasty. Can't wait to go back!
One word - AWESOME! But apparently I must write at least 50 characters, so I'll say it again: AWESOME!!!
Cosy place for 3/4 people for a friendly dining. The food is fabulous, highly recommend the volcano roll and the bento has a good selection of choices. The sushi is a little bit over price.
Amazing as always!
As always, the team looked after us wonderfully well and the food was exquisite. The atmosphere was perfect and all with an extremely reasonable bill at the end!
Second time here and the food was excellent again. Good service cheap prices. Excellent Ramen
We love this place. Good food, nice service at a nice price.
Authentic and good quality are the keys words to the this little gem. The combo set was very well present and with good quality fresh ingredient that you can taste the difference. Although the restaurant is small but the deco is attractive and comfy enough for a simple night out with good food.
I absolutely love this place. I have been almost more times than I can count and it never disappoints! The staff are wonderful and always look after us very well. Will be returning - again and again!
Delicious food and great service
