Great food, drinks, and experience.
Such a fun experience!! Food was delicious!
Very fun experience!
The food quality was exceptional, vibes/energy were warm and inviting, and the drinks were amazing. Our server was lovely as well! Great experience, will be back!!
Always great experience at Niwa! Jason is the absolute best!
Steven, our server, was phenomenal from the greeting to delivering the bill. Knowledgeable, friendly, and offering suggestions that did not disappoint. He was attentive, and the other servers made it a point to pick up empty plates to make the dining experience enjoyable. There were a couple of things we wanted that were not available since we had a late reservation, but the suggestions to try instead were great. Portions were filling and fresh. Will definitely come back!!
Always a great experience! The pork belly and jowel are a go to! I tried the Heaven & Earth cocktail and I will be ordering this everytime I go now!!
great restaurant. food is clean and well presented. waiter was very professional. atmosphere was nice. the host was the only bad experience. maybe a new hire or just there to make a buck. doesn't really care about the job.
Jason was our waiter. He gave us great service and super attentive and polite.
Wife and I visited for the first time. Everything about the experience from the service to the food far exceeded our expectations, and was more than worth the ticket. Cooking was much easier than expected. Very well might be our favorite plate in Dallas now and will definitely be returning.
Great experience. Just would suggest planning better so customers don’t have to wait 25 min past their reserved time to get a table. Thanks
We came for NYE and it was fantastic. We initially thought when the first two apps came out there was not going to be enough food, but we were sooo wrong! It was a great deal for a preset menu. Our waitress was fantastic and the manager was able to accommodate to our needs!
Came in for the New Year’s Eve 5 course meal. The ambiance was nice. We had a reservation and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table. Food was ok. They gave us way too much meat for 5 courses. The ribeye was the best meat, followed by the wagyu a5. The others were way to salty. Overall, probably not going to try it again.
Service was amazing and the food was great.
Love this place.
I love this place! The service is always amazing, our waiter last night was Steven, he was attentive and knowledgeable he definitely made our Girl’s Night out an enjoyable one..
Delicious and a half. Will not disappoint!
Definitely not a 100$ a person restaurant!
Took my chopsticks before I was finished with my meal!
Fun, but way better places to spend that kind of $
Really great place for fun dining. Food was excellent and service was top notch
Great treasure in Deep Ellum! Fantastic meal for families to share and have fun making memories.
My date and I loved the experience. It was nothing we had done before. Everyone was so courteous and patient while showing us how we should enjoy our time there. Everyone answered our questions and tended to our needs. We will definitely be back.
The experience of cooking your meat is definitely a welcome change from most dining experiences. The happy hour prices on Tuesday’s are wonderful!
Great food! Staff explained how to cook the food. Will be coming back
The food was so bland, definitely NOT worth the price AT ALL. I changed our reservation from 7:15 to 7:30 I arrived at 7:29 my table wasn’t ready I waited about 20 minutes. We ordered drinks at the bar while we waited but the bartender took a long time to get our drinks done we were just standing waiting on drinks and a table. The alcohol drinks we’re not good. The waiter was very nice and polite. The food portion is extremely small for the price and the taste- the food has no taste! And for the price they charge it’s honestly, ridiculous. Price is not an issue- however, I do mind paying a price for food that doesn’t have any flavor. We had the coffee parfait- that was amazing!
I would not recommend this place.
Niwa is hands down my favorite Japanase BBQ spot in Dallas. I love their Tuesday Happy Hour!
Food was amazing. Great interior. Loved the robot that brings your food!
Best Yakiniku BBQ in town for sure, better than Mampuku and Gyukaku. You may not want to miss Gyoza (potsticker) with hand-made skins - limited availability.
Food is amazing . Staff are super attentive
Niwa is one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas. The food is always stellar and consistent, service is some of the highest possible (especially Cecelia) and the atmosphere is just so alive, you can't help but love it.
Went here for my moms birthday and it was so fun. It was very lit on a Monday night with music playing and a big crowd. Took us a few minutes after our reservation to get our seats and then took a while to get our order put in. It is pretty loud inside but had a blast making the food and eating. The drinks were also very delicious and a good pour. Overall, I’d come here for a third time!
A friend suggested Niwa for my husband’s birthday get together. Not only was service great, but ALL the food was phenomenal, a great value and fun to make! We look forward to coming back soon!
We had a wonderful first time experience. Our waitress was so helpful in explaining the menu and making recommendations. We enjoyed the cooking experience, and the meat and vegetables were very tasty. The sauces were very good, as well. We will definitely be back.
Food was beyond delicious, and service was impeccable.
Amazing food and service! I should know, I work here ;3
I went here for my bday with my family.
It was nice and my kiddos loved it. The food was good.
It was a nice experience!! The service was slow but staff was friendly.
Absolutely, delicious! Will definitely be going there again.
I had a great time I always enjoy my dinner at Niwa it is delicious and just an all around great experience. My servers are always on it even though the restaurant gets super busy.
Very impressive array of bbq
Third visit and plan to come back every time we are in Dallas. We want to try everything on the menu and we are getting there! Everything is delicious, drinks tasty, great service and reasonable. Plus the dining experience is fun!
Food was delicious. Meats are good quality. Ambiance is awesome. It was a little cold in the restaurant. The two Japanese Wagyu meats were not good at all. Too chewy. The domestic Wagyu was very good though! Ribeye cap was delicious. And the SMOKED FILET MIGNON WAS THE BEST.
