We have dined at Nisen Sushi before, always having a wonderful meal and great service. Nisen has been here for nearly 20 years. Their website says that they “specialize in unique dishes, special presentations and first-rate service.” We can attest to that. This was our first visit after restaurants reopened during Covid. Although indoor dining was available, and Nisen has a beautiful interior, we are not comfortable doing that yet. We knew that Nisen has always had outdoor seating and so made a reservation for outside.
There are several handicapped spaces throughout the large, paved lot, with one close to the street-level, single door entrance. There is a small entryway and another single door to the hostess area. Since we had a table outside, there was no need to enter. Tables out here, as well as inside, have been well-spaced. Inside, the sushi bar is closed, tables are far apart and there are a number of private booths, which provide natural distancing between diners.
We were happy to see that plates, utensils and napkins came wrapped in plastic. The entire staff wore masks and gloves. Hand-sanitizer was readily available. These things were much appreciated and allowed us to enjoy our wonderful meal with less stress. Everything we ordered was delicious as always. The service was attentive and professional. Everything we had come to enjoy and expect at Nisen made for another delightful experience. I never want my dinner there to end!
If you are going to the restroom area, take note of the slight “lip” to enter the area. It can be a bit difficult to notice due to the lighting. There are two, large, handicapped-accessible, single-occupancy restrooms with tile floors, wheelchair accessible sink and mirror, something not found in many restrooms.
As always, we advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.nisensushi.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
