Description

Nippon, a quaint Japanese restaurant on a pleasant, tree-lined part of lower Montrose, has been a low-key gem and a favorite of Houston’s Japanese expats since 1985. The sushi bar, separated from the main dining room and done in light wood, is the preferred destination for many patrons; it manages to be a soothing setting even on a busy weekend night. The restaurant has long enjoyed a reputation for excellent sushi—the owner, a master chef from Japan, usually can be seen tending to the fish. Other offerings include donburi, ramen, soba, and udon, all served by a friendly, solicitous staff.
