Dimitrov, who has added Andre Agassi to his coaching team in an attempt to regain his form, let 4-1 in the second set but was unable to see it out and take the match to a decider.
Instead, it was Nishikori who now progresses to the semi-finals.
There, he will meet Frenchman Jeremy Chardy after he qualifier Yasutaka Uchiyama of Japan 6-4 3-6 7-6.
