Second time I've eaten here. Dingy and humid atmosphere. This time the waiter kept sighing impatiently as we ordered and then was very slow and inefficient in return. The sushi portions are supposed to be generous but the unagi wan't very impressive and promptly fell apart as I lifted it from the plate. The chirashi bowl lacked the typical garnish one expects; the rice was overcooked and poorly seasoned. I ordered an extra bowl of rice and it was soggy and overcooked. Strikes me that they use the cheapest rice possible, and then care little how it is prepared There really are better places for Japanese food and sushi in San Antonio. The people that think this place is 5 star quality need to try some other sushi joints. Don't go to Niki's Tokyo Inn, it is a terrible terrible place. I wish I could rate it less than one star.

I usually never write reviews, because I feel places (people) deserve a second chance, but after my first, and surely, last visit to this place, I have decided that they DON'T deserve a second chance. After our order, we waited for 57 minutes for our sushi, and seemingly the place was not packed. When the sushi arrived, the rice was over boiled, and the fish lukewarm, which means that it (the fish) was out for a while. Furthermore, instead of using the normal Japanese rice, they used the cheapest possible rice, which is not suitable for sushi. Our other dish was tempura, which came cold, and that was unacceptable. On top of that, we were sitting on the floor, Japanese style, and surely got bitten several times by insects resembling FLEAS! We ended up paying $80, leaving very unsatisfied, and frustrated. This was supposed to be a great experience, considering how many people rave about this place. My advice - save your money, and go elsewhere.

Sushi is quite good. The picture that you see in Google+ page is their Sushi Dinner plate. 5 really big Ngiri pieces plus sides for $19. You can also ask them to cut each piece into 2. I am not a big fan of hand-rolls but they also have a similar hand-roll dinner: 5 giant hand rolls for $19.

BEST IN S.A. I have to eat here at least once a week. Freshest seafood you can find in San Antonio (I have looked) I have lived near the ocean my whole life and fresh seafood has always been part of my diet. After numerious failed attempts to find good seafood in town I stumbled upon Niki's. Ive been forced to eat at other sushi places her in town and non compare. I can even order my favorite delicacy (Abalone). I can eat a five course meal with Tea, Saki, and Beer for half the price of any of the commercialized places. Pat's customer service is second to none and he makes my ol'lady and I feel like part of the family. She doesn't eat fish AT ALL but they are able to cusomize vegitarian dishes just for her taste. This allows me to partake any time I feel the urge with no guilt about satisfying my other half. I feel obligated to recommend this place any chance I get.
