By: Hellobali |

The latest Japanese restaurant offers the freshest quality of ingredients in a super casual atmosphere.

Opened in early May of this year, Nagisa is a casual Japanese dining destination located at Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa. Using a simple izakaya dining and drinking concept, Nagisa offers authentic Japanese cuisine created by its native Japanese born and trained Head Chef, Katsumi Goda. With more than 44 years of experience, Chef Katsumi Goda has committed to source as much locally sourced ingredients as possible, to the observance of omotenashi, the Japanese unique principle of sincere and wholehearted service, Nagisa combines Japanese cultures with Balinese-found ingredients and natural elements.

The menu at Nagisa encompasses the staples of Japanese cuisine with Robatayaki, Teppanyaki and Sushi rolls being the highlights. True to Japanese traditions, the seafood and much of the ingredients are freshly bought daily by Chef Goda at the fish market. Robatayaki method of grilling worships pristine ingredients, and Nagisa makes use of the freshest local ingredients available.

The beverage list carries a carefully curated selection of sake, shochu, Japanese whiskey, and beer. From the traditional Gekkeikan sake to boutique brewers, to Indonesian craft beers, Nagisa is set to serve up an insightful night of laid back ambiance with meaningful discoveries of Japanese culture.

Sitting at an area of 400 sqm, the interior of Nagisa was designed by Pakumala Joehana, a graduate of Tokyo Designer Gakuin College. The whole of Nagisa is an endeavor to display many Japanese architectural elements and traditions such as the use of wagara as embellishment (Japanese pattern art), a Japanese garden corner, as well as a proper little chashitsu (Japanese tea house) for daily tea ceremony lessons, hosted by Chef Goda himself (advance booking required).

Nagisa is open Tuesday - Sunday, from 5 pm till 11 pm. For more information and reservation, contact Nagisa at Hotel Nikko Bali Benoa Beach by phone at (+62 361) 773 577 ext. 809 or email at
