Japanese
"Pacha Nikkei will introduce the unique flavors, philosophy and techniques of Nikkei cuisine to Houston. In doing so, it pays tribute to a successful integration of cultures that goes back 124 years in Peru, and that has significantly contributed to the gastronomic wealth of the country. Pacha in the Quechua language of Peru means “world” and Nikkei is a Japanese word, widely used in Peru to refer to Japanese-Peruvian people. The encounter between these rich cultures has given rise to a delicious culinary expression that we would like to share with the world."

    They said I could watch the soccer game, then they call me at the last moment to tell me no.

    The food arrived hot and fresh, and the service was very good. I gave it a lower rating though because there was a certain smell when I entered, which seemed like a faint sewer smell. I went to the bathroom, and there was the same smell. I couldn't enjoy the food when I am thinking and smelling sewer.

    Bento box with ceviche was excellent. Udon noodle dish with beef was bland as the meat held no flavor. Tender, but needed to be marinated to bring out more excitement.

    Delicious spot for a nice lunch. Absolute must for dessert - cream filled churros - one of the tastiest desserts I have had the pleasure of eating in a long time!

    Best sushi I’ve ever had. I’m usually apprehensive about trying things with fruit in them (mangos etc) but this was dishes were heavenly. I was pleasantly surprised by the layers of flavor in each bite. The king crab was fresh and delectable, the beef and chicken skewers were grilled to perfection and all the sauces used were one of a kind. I usually need soy sauce on my sushi to add flavor and moisture but I didn’t need it this time at all. The cocktails were sweet and refreshing. Highly recommend this tasty fusion restaurant!

    Stunning! The food was simply stunning. My first visit, and certainly not my last. I can't say enough about the quality, the creativity, and the presentation of the meal. This was a business lunch, and we asked for recommendations, and enjoyed a feast, tapas-style, of sushi rolls, dumplings, paella, and some appetizers that were simply incredible. The staff was very helpful and attentive, and the owner/chef was delightful. Go and give this restaurant some love!

    The food was very delicious, from the appetizers, main meal, and cocktails. The service was impeccable. My water glass was always filled and I never had to ask for a refill. Our server was highly knowledgeable about the food and provided excellent recommendations. I’ll definitely be back.

    Everything was delicious. We particularly loved the Ceviche Clasico, the Pacha Maki, and the Lomo Saltado. Friendly and attentive service. Can't wait to go back.

    Nice decor and live music on Sundays. Lomo Saltado was on the pricier side for what it was. Ramen was a bit oily. Not sure how fresh seafood was on Sunday since dining mates said shrimp did not seem too fresh and one of them thinks they may have gotten stomach upset from the ceviche.

    Excellent ceviches and incredibly good black rise but it's a shame their wine list is so poor (e.g., no good cava). Needs work on that

    Pacha Nikkei easily became my wife and I’s favorite restaurant in Houston. The food quality was excellent, everything we had was incredible. Their maki rolls were delightful, the lomo saltado was delicious, and their dessert lucuma cheesecake left me wanting seconds! The service was very attentive. Will definitely be going again!

    Food was flavorful and great, but prizes way too expensive for what it really is and for the small portion sizes!! The place is very nice, but a little too noisy, it was hard to keep up a conversation.

    We came to try out the Houston Restaurant Weeks menu, and have been looking forward to the concept of Japanese/Peruvian fusion. The quality of the food is quite good, but hewed close enough to the Japanese concept that it became difficult not to judge it as Japanese food. Sushi without sushi rice felt oddly out of place due to the texture, but I could tell there was a lot of care in the cooking and composition of the individual components. I wish there were more Peruvian elements in the HRW menu, and maybe we will be back in the future to sample those.
