Reviews for Niwa Restaurant

I celebrated my graduation earlier this evening in this delicious restaurant. happy to tell that we enjoyed a delightful evening and the restaurant was surely the reason for this successful meeting. The stuff helped in a graceful manner, the cooking was tasty and my buddies were so pleased. We shall no dout visit again for more events. thanks very much.

They seem very nice here but this is far from authentic sushi. They hand you a Chinese food menu in addition to the short and very basic sushi menu. I was hopeful because the reviews online were good but they only had one bottle of sake and either there's something wrong with that particular bottle or it's just a terrible sake. I could not drink any of it. Sho Chiku Bai isn't great, but generally it isn't undrinkable. The appetizer they gave me had so much mayonnaise on the full review
I agree with Michael C's review 14 days ago...Niwa is potentially the best sushi restaurant in the Bay Area. While I've tried many, I keep coming back to Orinda. The meal starts with a free cucumber and crab salad. The sushi is always fresh and well prepared. The specialties, named after repeat patrons, are delicious. I'm particularly fond of Jacob's roll and the Dragon roll. The service is always attentive and my tea cup and water glass are kept full full review
