Brighton’s original Japanese restaurant


Japanese Restaurant & Cocktail Bar

Welcome to Oki-Nami, Brighton’s original Japanese restaurant.

We offer authentic Japanese cuisine using only the finest and freshest of ingredients, served in elegant and contemporary surroundings.

Visit us to enjoy delicious Japanese classics and new dishes with a twist − from sushi to sashimi, and noodles to soups.

Located in the heart of Brighton next to the Theatre Royal, Oki-Nami is owned by leading Japanese chef Mike Dodd and Brighton DJ Norman Cook.

Open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, we also have a fabulous cocktail bar and a very popular takeaway service. And if that wasn’t enough, we host regular sushi workshops to help you get your maki on.
