We had such a great time at Nunu! The aesthetic is fun and sexy. The food is delicious and in perfect portion. The drinks are great and the people are better :) Would come back a million times!

Eggplant curry rice bowl had almost no salt and the rice of the rolls was warm. It was quite disapointing, specially because I had a very good experience at Cheu, which is Nunu sister restaurant.

Nice for a light bite. The tuna sashimi was the best of our menu item choices. Super fun spot for a date night.

My husband and I came here for date night and we loved the food and ambiance! Great service too! Also had quite a few vegetarian options which was nice. This is an excellent spot and we can’t wait to come again.

This was a suprising gem to us that I'm sad we found on our last day in the city. Our waitress was awesome, and recommended different sakes to try along with the apps. We went during happy hour, so they had a great deal on traditional yakatori and some different things (try the matza ball scapple!). Great selection of sake and beer, the citywide special is awesome here.

They also are partnered with the Chinese style restaurant next door, so do both if you're hanging out in Fishtown.

Amazing service and ambiance, food was a little overpriced in my opinion but go during happy hour to get your money's worth!

Unfortunately this place has already reached its peak and is going downhill. I’ve been five or six times since it opened and this time it was much worse. Poorer menu and impolite servers.

The bar is great for happy hour. The only real disappointment was the menu. They took off a few great dishes (ramen and impossible burger) that we were coming there for, but overall it’s still worth checking out.

Great food and a really fun design throughout but they were WAY too aggressive with the air conditioner (it was cloudy and 65 degrees outside) love them and Cheu but please don't literally freeze out your customers.

Cheu, next door has better food options and flavors. We honestly tried a handful of items from their happy hour menu and they were very overpriced. Also had the coctail of the day and wasn’t a fan. This place isn’t terrible but it’s mediocre at best and not worth the hype.

Everything was great, the grilled beet salad is a must as are the scallops on a skewer and the brisket sandwich. I can't wait to try the Sake list. Great music too a nice blend of classic Alternative Hip Hop Like ATCQ and some psychedelic and alternative rock.
