Nhinja Sushi and Wok: A Sushi Restaurant You Can Bring Your Kids To

By Elisha Neubauer

Have you ever taken small children out for sushi or fine dining? If you said yes, then you know exactly how Kang and Mary Nhin felt when they tried to enjoy a meal out with their two young boys, who were four and five years old. As their children became rambunctious in the very adult setting, they realized that they weren't alone; other families must have the same experience. It was then that Nhinja Sushi & Wok was conceived.

Mary Nhin, owner of Nhinja Sushi & Wok, says, "We wanted to help others enjoy sushi and fresh food without sacrificing quality, family time, and great service." The Nhins wanted to create an environment where families could enjoy a well-balanced, nutritious meal without having to worry about their children acting like, well, children. "Nhinja Sushi & Wok strives to be fast, fun, and fresh just like our sons- Mikey, Kobe, and JoJo," explained Nhin.

Nhin explains that good sushi is all about quality and simplicity. "Nhinja doesn't sacrifice on quality. We truly believe that the cornerstone to our success is the high-quality seafood and ingredients that make up our sushi. We also believe that to produce sushi freshly made as you order, it must be simple." She thinks the key to pleasing the whole family is minimalism. "You won't find complex rolls with a lot of different names, fancy sauces, or tons of layers. In fact, it's all about getting back to basics with sashimi, nigiri, and simple, almost boring, but undoubtedly healthy rolls," she declares.

Nhinja Sushi & Wok is aesthetically pleasing to both adults and children. While the simple, white furniture shouts simplicity and sophistication, the colored lights and photographs of children adorning the walls will make your children feel right at home. A clear favorite within the community, it has been well-rated on several online review sites, such as Yelp!, TripAdvisor, and UrbanSpoon.

Reviewers regard the place as, "Trendy, simple, and delicious." "I love supporting locally-owned businesses..." says one online reviewer. "I love it even more when a message on the wall states the owners mission is nutritious, healthy food served quickly, and reference their three young sons as their inspiration... This mother's heart melted!"

Nhinja Sushi & Wok goes out of its way to make dining a great experience- with friendly service, great music, and family-friendly sushi and wok options. Don't worry, kids- there's something for you too. If you're looking for a restaurant that will gladly host your entire family without costing you an arm and a leg, give Nhinja a try. Don't forget to mention that you're dining local- they offer a 10% discount for those who "Keep it Local."
