My husband and I ate here for the first time today and just loved it! The Wafu salad was divine and the miso soup was very good. For the grill we got the sweet butter corn, the seafood papillote (pouch), and an assortment of meats...More

I have been to NIWA a few times and every time it has been excellent. The service is good, the self serve barbeque is fun and the food is top notch. The cocktails are pretty good too.

For Japanese BBQ that is close to authentic, this is a great choice. We had an array of beef and vegetable dishes, and all were very good cuts and quality. Only feedback for improvement may be to keep the seasonings (on the meats) simple -...More
