An invitation from friends brought us to Nisen Sushi, a beautiful venue, with delicious food and wonderful service. Located in a non-descript shopping area, our expectations were not high. Based on our experience I have to say that one should not “judge a book by its cover.” There are several handicapped parking spaces throughout the paved lot, one of which is close to the street-level, single door entrance. A small entryway and another single door got us to the hostess desk.
We were wonderfully surprised by the beautiful interior, lighting and design. Tile floor, a full-height bar/lounge area, full-height sushi bar, the main dining area with booths and tables, plus some “private booths,” make for an interesting and intimate layout. Ample space between tables makes navigation easy. Our friends had made reservations and we had the good fortune to be seated in one of the priate booths – so nice! Nisen has been here tor nearly twenty years. Their website says that they, “specialize in unique dishes, special presentations and first-rate service.” We can attest to all of those. Our rolls were delicious, the presentation of all of our dishes was photo worthy, and the service impeccable. We could not have had a better experience anywhere!
If you are going to the restroom area, take note of the slight “lip” to enter the area. It is a bit difficult to notice because of the lighting. There are two, large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms with tile floors and a wheelchair accessible sink and mirror, something not found in many restrooms.
I almost forgot, there are a few outdoor tables in an area the restaurant has set up. The area is surrounded by bushes to shut out the parking lot.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.nisensushi.com, to “know before you go,”
