Good sushi, nice nightlife scene. I highly recommend their Monday night drag shows, and I don't really like drag that much. Parking is kind of a hassle.

Nickiemoto's has a great location. We have been with friends to try the sushi and it was good. They have a good patio. The parking isn't the best but the valet helps.

Most of the reviews I read are over a year old so I thought I would update as of April 2009. We had a very nice meal here. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The fish was very fresh and nicely prepared. Would definitely go back.

Pros: fresh fish, nice drinks, nice staff

Cons: none that come to mind

Have eaten here a couple of times and always found it to be a pretty good option from some of the more known sushi bars. Not a big a eel eater but discovered even that could be made delectable as it was here, but in general a good choice is you're an avid sushi enthusiast. Oh and the plum wine, excellent.

When I moved to Atlanta a few years back, this is one of the first restaurant's I ate at ITP. I continue to go back at least a few times a year because this is one of the best places for a chilled out dinner with friends, grabbing a bite before a concert, or just because. They have a great drag show on Monday nights that will entertain! The sushi is great and I have never ever had a problem with the food or the service. The prices are pretty reasonable, considering the area. Do try the chocolate bread pudding, it is to die for! They also offer some asian fusion type dishes which are good if there are sushi haters in your group. The wine list is good, nothing crazy over the top. The only down side is the parking. The valet is hit or miss and if you get there at the wrong time, you could end up waiting a bit for the valet. Make reservations on a Monday night or weekend.

Living around the corner, I have visited this place a few times. The food is decent. However, the service is not so good. Last visit, our order was taken and food came about 15 min served by someone out of the kitchen. Not sure, where our waiter was, because we hadn't received our drinks yet.

Tonight we arrived around 6:30 PM, there was around 8-9 tables of customers. The host seated us at the back of the restaurant behind the sushi bar when there were plenty of seats open. After about 15 min of no service, we made contact with the waiters...no order yet. The host peeked back around the corner, so we waited about 5 more minutes hoping he would find someone for us. No such luck . We finally decided after 20 minutes to leave. As we walked toward the door, the 2 hosts turned and started talking to each other and completed ignored us as we walked out the door. I have never been treated so rude.

This restaurant is a joke. Unless you are treasuring generic high-tech interiors, high attitude of personal and drag shows more then your food you should not even consider visiting. This is a good example of what trendy is and good is not.

Don't go there. The "complimentary" valet is a rip-off. After spending $100 at the restaurant, I walked across the street for about 10 minutes. When I returned, the valet guys intimidated me into paying $10 dollars before they would give me my car. They threatened to call the police if I didn't pay. They did this AFTER I had already given them their tip. What a lousy way to treat a long-term loyal customer that has given that business hundreds of dollars over the years. I will never go there again after such a miserable experience.

The restaurant is cool but he sushi is a little weird. It's like they tried too hard to jazz it up and I like more of the traditional sushi rolls. Not recommended for the sushi purist.

Nikimogo's is a really nice restaurant. It looks good and atomosphere is awsome. However, as for sushi (I dont know about other menus), the restaurant is below average. Not only the portion is ridiculously small and it is over priced, sushi at nikimoto's is not authenic. As an native japanese and someone who used to work at a sushi place, I know that sushi chefs there are not experienced at all. So, if you want to grab some americanized suhsi at a fashionable place, it is a good place to go but if you really enjoy sushi, not recommended.

The sushi is awesome. Try the dragon roll and Yami Yami roll. Those are the best. The fried rice is also great.

Fantastic! This is one of the few restaurants that has resisted the trend in jacking up the prices. There is always something going on inside, and the outdoor patio is well dressed. I love the catfish..best cooked fish in the city! The sushi is not high-end, but is still fresh and well-priced. The service is great...friendly and fun. PS...strongest drinks I've ever been served.

This is one of the only places I go where I always get the same thing. The Yami Yami Roll is my favorite sushi roll ever. The crab rangoons are excellent too. Service can be a little slow- the last 2 times I've been we waited over 10 minutes before even being greeted by our server. Although when they finally do show up service is always friendly.

On our last visit, we waited 35-40 minutes for a booth. We were offered sushi bar seats, but declined due to the noise and long waits there. We got a booth and were greeted by a rude server. Our attention soon shifted to the next booth and the SHRIEKING child occupying. The noise continued and I asked our server if the manager would mind asking the parents to be considerate of other diners. She came back, saying the manager had replied that we could 'go to the sushi bar.' I ended up with a headache and didn't enjoy my meal, which was lackluster at best. We spoke with the manager, who said she knew the couple with the child & they'd been coming for years longer than us, and stated the opinion that we had a problem, and not vice versa.

I used to come here when it first opened years ago and truly enjoyed the experience. Overtime the quality began to go down. I recently decided to give it another shot and I'm happy I did. They still have the Tuesday $1 sushi nights. The quality and presentation has gone up dramatically. Note: This isn't traditional sushi like Hashiguchi, Sushi Huku or Imari. It's what I like to call fun sushi. It is tons fresher than RuSans. The atmosphere is mixed and fun. Dress is casual to dressy casual. Good for dates & large groups. Big round booths are the most fun. Patio is nice in warm weather.

Tip - if you have an Entertainment Guide coupon book, you save big here. If you buy the book, what you save with using the coupong just for this restaurant pays for the book.

Consistent sushi and wide variety of other Asian foods, so those who like to experiment will have a good time as well as those just going for sushi. Much better for lunch - less crowded, choice of tables, and better service.

slow tuesday night for a 1st timer at this trendy joint. get a booth if you can, they are great! this place is kinda posh for a sushi restaurant...and of course it's location, both of which equal higher than normal sushi prices.

If you've never had sushi prepared by a true sushi-chef(minimum of seven years of study),then you'll probably enjoy the sushi here and anywhere else they "crank out" the food with no attention to detail,textures,or presentation. A true sushi-dining experience is a combination of atmosphere,the sushi chef engaging in conversation with you as he/she prepares your order with high quality seafood and other ingredients.

I had a veg dish w/ tofu & veggies, the tofu was about half-cooked & the veggies were limp & swimming in sauce. My sis had some sushi & some noodles both were sub-par, avoid the hype & rep this place has & treat yourself to something good.

Skip the sushi--it's mediocre at best; scary at worst-and order dumplings or something safe like tempura or one of the "pan-Asian" noodle dishes. Location is great. Patio is lovely. Why can't the sushi be as nice.

Being very familiar with true Japanese cuisine I most definitely have to say that Nickiemotos is not quite it. I have dined here a few times just because it is in my neighborhood and my first other choice for Sushi is no longer living up to that spot. The food quality is very mediocre yet not bad with its presentation, in my opinion good food can be served on paper plates for all I care. I will give it to them for trying to go for the chic trendy look even though its still not quite. A good improvement could also start with the service, no one should have to wait 15 min for a napkin! The setting is still enjoyable; for the less finicky of course.
