Sector 29 boasts of being home to a wide variety of restaurants and pubs churning out some kickass grub. New in line is a Japanese eatery called Nagai located away from the main market near Lime Tree Hotel.
The restaurant is all about delicious and healthy Japanese dishes offering a huge variety to choose from. Apart from the regular menu, they also have a Set Business Lunch that is actually a good deal for those who like to indulge and we couldn’t wait to dive in!
Get in early and grab the best spot in the house. It’s a beautiful long table by the window with a geisha backdrop, lovely view of the fountain outside and comfortable floor seating with a space to drop your legs in. So cosy!

Your first choice of order at a Japanese restaurant should be their Chicken Gyoza. I am completely in love with these pot stickers that are slightly crispy at the bottom. The flavour of the chicken filling is beautiful. If you are a vegetarian, the Tofu & Mushroom Gyoza is your best choice.
From the sushi selection, I tried the Crispy Avocado roll and the Spicy double mushroom roll. Both dishes had been prepared immaculately with all vegetarian ingredients. Sushi lovers are bound to be wooed by these delicacies. I am still new to sushi and helping my palate develop to the taste but I’ve come a long way now. I really enjoyed the California roll which has fried prawn in the centre with rice outside that is a great choice for beginners.
I really wanted to give the noodles a try and went in for the Vegetable Yaki Udon. Accentuated with Japanese spices and vegetables, the dish is perfect to eat by itself or a great accompaniment to the Teppenyaki chicken. Another traditional Japanese style of preparation, the grilled chicken is cooked well and tossed in a light sauce with broccoli and babycorn.
When at the restaurant, do order the Tempura King Prawn, it’s amazing. This is another star dish on the menu with absolutely fresh seafood. Don’t forget to try it with the dipping sauce as it is an essential ingredient to impart flavour to the tempura fry.
The Salmon teriyaki is one dish we would come back for again and again. The generously portioned fillet of salmon is cooked perfectly to say the least. The teriyaki sauce imparts a beautiful flavour to it and making it a great dish. It’s specially perfect if you are on a diet or watching your weight…it couldn’t get healthier than this!
From the dessert selection we tried the Dark Chocolate & Cinnamon Semifrodo and Apple & Cinnamon Millefeuille. We preferred the latter with crispy flaky pastry covered in a sweet sauce, served with vanilla ice cream.
