Description: This classically kooky, Tokyo-esque Japanese restaurant and delicatessen on the New Road in Brighton is the brainchild of acclaimed chef Mike Dodd and DJ Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim. With a minimialist, contemporary interior featuring handmade oak furniture, caliigraphy clad lanterns and an exclusive soundtrack tailor made by Cook, Oki-Nami has become a hit with local sushi connoisseurs, hipsters and Japanophiles. Located near the Theatre Royal opposite the Pavillion Gardens, Oki-Nami restaurant is renowned for its award-winning sushi; Japanese tapas; main courses such as the Suzuki Saffron sea bass served with a citrus sauce; desserts including the restaurant's famous green tea ice cream; and east-meets-west cocktails such as the Japanese Cherry Blossom Margarita.

Always reliably good. Fresh sashimi and crispy tempura
Brilliant for pre theatre as right next door to Theatre Royal.

Visited for lunch. Incredible sushi - some of the best I've had in the UK. Desserts were something special too.
10/10 would recommend.

Do not worry if you get there and the place is not packed. Just seat there, and look at the menu while drinking a little glass of sake'. You will soon be delivered of your anxieties, and relax. The food is attentively cooked and really good. One of my prefered restaurants in town!

Just next to the Theatre Royal, the staff are geared for quick service before a performance. Japanese food plus a bit more of Asia. Good service and selection of wines to complement dishes. Into theatre in good time!!
