Today I needed my Nippon Kitchen fix, as I had just been to the Blythswood Square Gin Festival and was hungry.

I always find I am very relaxed here, and enjoy the atmosphere and more so the food which is why I keep coming back. I did enquire if Nippon Kitchen has a Twitter account, but at the time of writing this they still don’t but you can find them on Facebook.

I am going to shock you all, well the ones that are regular readers of my blog…..I had 3 different dishes…..hope you were sitting down reading that part.

Starter :

Yasai Korokee (V) : £4.50
Sweet potato cakes deep fried in panic breadcrumbs, served with Japanese fruity sauce and mayonnaise.


This was very light, and had a nice flavour. The sauce was really good, and boosted the flavour that little more.

Portion size it was perfect for a starter.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 3.5

Main :

10 Piece Special Maki Sushi : £11.00
Crispy soft shell crab and tempura king prawns rolled with cucumber and mayonnaise topped with fresh king prawn and sesame seeds.


Can you really go wrong with sushi? yes you can but anytime I have had it here its been perfect.

This was a smaller size for me, and also a different style of sushi than I normally have.

I really like this, the flavour was really good and the tempura king prawns added a really nice taste and texture to each bite. The rice was perfect as it didn’t fall apart, which I have found a few places in Glasgow this happens.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Drink :

Coconut Juice


I decided to try this knowing nothing about it, apart from it should taste like Coconut.

I was very surprised with this, as the flavour was not overpowering and it was very thirst quenching. As you can see by the photo there are little bits at the bottom of the glass, these are actual coconut pieces.

I can’t remember the cost but it was under £5, when I return I will remember to take note.

Overall :

Overall another very satisfied visit to Nippon Kitchen, the service etc were all very good today and I am glad I tried a few new different dishes.

Nippon is still my current favourite in Glasgow for Japanese and Sushi.

First Impressions :

This is not my first time at Nippon Kitchen, probably more like my 10th time this year.

When I started going to Nippon Kitchen, any time I went there was always a table available but more recently its very very busy (which is good). Every time I have been the staff have always been very pleasant and very helpful, the restaurant has always been very clean and tidy.

For me Nippon Kitchen has become a favourite for when I want ribs and Sushi, as well I will save this part for the next section.

The Food :

For some reason every time I am here I always get the same, but for me nothing else beats it as I love what I order and could easily have it daily.

I have also had a few cocktails from here and beers, do give them a shot as they are nice and work well with a lot of the dishes.



For my starter I always have the ribs, they are full of flavour and also the meat just slides off the bone. Not much really to say about these apart from what has already been said and they are so good….wish I had them right now as my mouth is watering

Main :


For my second course, I jump between the 16 and the 20 piece Sushi platter (just depends on how hungry I am on the day).

This is always a winner for me, the flavours and textures of the fish and the rice etc its just really good. I know other restaurants that charge prices close to this but they only do a very small amount, this you get a lot and its good value for money.

It might not look very filling, but trust me once you get close to the last few pieces you will be very full.

Overall :

As I said at the start this is one of my favourite places to go, every time is excellent service and the food is always good. If you like Sushi or Japanese food, try Nippon Kitchen I promise you that you will have a great time and nice food.
