NAKAI SUSHI & JAPANESE CUISINE

Official Visit Kinosaki Member

Welcome to Nakai

A quiet sushi shop tucked away in the back of an alleyway near the center of Toyooka. Locals sit at the counter to enjoy a good meal and a talk with the master as he stands behind the counter creating delicious sushi plates. You can hear people talking business or mutual friends having a good laugh over found memories.

Sushi and much more

The master takes great pride in using mainly locally grown vegetables, locally raised beef, and locally caught seafood. You can taste bounty of the Tajima area in the variety of dishes served which includes more than just the conventional nigiri sushi. The chefs like to mix new techniques and flavors with the local ingredients to create original dishes that are both traditionally Japanese and French cuisine. You can order what you like off of the menu or if you have no idea what to order but want to try a variety of dishes try the “omakase” course. The chef will step in and create a tailored menu just for you. Don’t worry about the price you can select a price range for your “omakase” course. For example, with the 3,000yen course you will probably get about 4 or 5 different dishes that could include a plate of sashimi with about 3 different kinds of fish, a tempura plate, chawanmushi, sushi roll or rice dish, grilled or broiled seasonal fish to name a few common dishes that tend to come with a “omakase” course. The shop likes to serve the food as fresh as possible so that you can enjoy the flavor at its maximum goodness, so your dishes may come out one at a time with the staff timing when to have the next dish made and brought out to you.
Nakai is open for both dinner and lunch the menus are similar but have some select dishes that are served only at lunch or dinner. The lunch menu has a few basic sets to choose from, if you are in a bit of rush ordering a set lunch might give you some more time.
