Nippon Kitchen (Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I have been here many times and always loved the food, atmosphere and always recommended here to many people. I have aimed to come back but then covid hit, so today I did.

Tonight’s visit was a bit of a mixed bag to be honest.

It was a busy night, and we were seated…we ordered our starters and mains and drinks.

After a wee wait our my main arrived and my friends side… starter. After our waitress noticed (she was very on the ball and very helpful) another little wait and our starters arrived. We finished our starters, and I sat and waited till my friends main arrived as since I had sushi it was already cold.

A bit of a wait later and we got an apology and my friends main arrived, they were kind enough to remove his main from the bill and explained most of the staff tonight were new….to be honest we didn’t mind as it was a busy night plus if they were new that’s cool we have all been in that position before.

Anyway yes I LOVED my meal and continue to read my thoughts.


Takoyaki (5 Pieces) £6.00
Octopus and cabbage in a soft batter with ginger and spring onion, with tonkatsu sauce and Japanese mayonnaise

I wanted to order something random and this stood out for me.

I am so glad I did as this is SO SO SO good!!!

The batter had a very slightly crisp to it, and biting in to a very soft and mega tasty inside. The full taste plus the sauce was honestly so moreish!!

I finished this starter with ease and loved every mouthful.

Highly Recommended.

Main Course :

16 Piece Moriawase Sushi £17.50
Cucumber & pickled radish, California maki, fresh salmon, tuna, king prawn, mackerel, tuna mayonnaise and salmon mayonnaise nigiri.

Every time I am here I always have to get this, as its filling and super tasty.

It tasted as good as it looks, and everything was nice and fresh.

I was mega full come the end of this as I hadn’t realised how filling my starter would be.

Highly recommended if you like sushi.

Mocktail : Amai Nojito £4.50
Pressed apple, blueberry, lime, mint, soda

I was the designated driver tonight so a mocktail was needed.

This sounded very nice, so I had to give it a shot.

Presentation was very nice, and the taste was very refreshing…my only comment would be it was 1/2 full of ice as you can see…so a bit more of the juice would have been better.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Overall :

After all the long waits and the mains coming first before starters tonight was a nice evening.

Service wise to be honest it wasn’t great, but they were kind enough enough to remove my friends main from the bill.

Food wise, as always very very nice and very moreish.

If the service was good like it was in the past, it would have been a solid 5/5 but due to that I have to take it to a 3…sorry guys
