  • "the food was amazing but what impressed me was how they catered the service to each customer, as they offered brown rice substitutions for sushi or soy rice paper. "

  • "Hungry after college graduation ceremonies, and not wanting bar food or Italian, our college graduate suggested Nami. Walked in, were seated right away, and our hopes were more than met. Good craft beer on tap, helpful suggestions from the very friendly waiter, and an awesome platter of sushi came forth after a wonderful appetizer of the mango grilled shrimp entree. Highly recommended. Though expensive, you get what you pay for."

  • "I went there with a group of girls for my bday. Food was so delicious, waiter was extremely helpful, my white Sangria was amazing. We ordered many different samplings & there wasn't a morsel left! They even brought out a too die for chocolate covered moose dessert w a candle! So good! Crowded but the place is very spacious. I will definitely be back."

  • "Went there on Saturday evening with my husband and another couple for dinner. We shared sushi for our starters and split 2 dinners between the 4 of us. The sushi was fresh and delicious! Dinner was just as good as well as the martini's. We will definitely return!"

  • "Didn't have the wine that we wanted but overall the experience was good. The rolls were huge so for a party of (4) to share four rolls was plenty!"

  • "Great food, creative inventive dishes, all plated beautifully. Friendly staff, great modern decor. Definitely one of the best if not the best sushi spot in RI. Went with a group on a Saturday night and it was fairly full but not as busy as one would expect for a Saturday night. I really hope this place sticks around because the food and ambience is awesome."

  • "We had made reservations with what we thought would be plenty of time to still make our concert plans. We did not anticipate the long time it took to get to and down Atwells Ave. on a Sat nite. There is free valet parking, which is a big plus....as some restaurants charge large sums for valet parking on Atwells. When we announced our time restraints, we were told that would not be a problem, and it wasn't. If we were discussing a dish that would take too long to prepare, we were told as much. Everything came out timely, was tasty and was presented in a beautiful fashion(especially the sea urchin). Have already recommended the restaurant to my son."

  • "My GF and I went late on v-day (9:30) & we were expecting chaos, everything was smooth & as soon as we got there we sat within 10 min. We got out drinks at the bar first and the male behind the counter was very friendly. Once our table was ready we ordered 3 rolls of sushi, no apps. Our good came out prob an hour later which would have been fine if our waitress had come to our table at all to check up on us. I had to flag her down to ask where it was. I understand it's busy on a holiday but at least check in with us. Besides that we had a perfect evening. Drinks, sushi, and atmosphere were perfect, service.....just check in with your table a little more. Will recommend tho! One experience doesn't make up my mind about a restaurant."

  • "With a reduced menu and a very busy restaurant - it is difficult to provide a complete review. With that said, sushi was amazing and drinks were favorites with all parties. Presentation was great as well - very unique. In addition we ordered one entree (salmon) that was awesome... In short - definitely worth a try - we will be back when the hibachi grills are open"

  • "Sushi was great along with the staff. We used the complimentary VIP parking. Received our car a noticed a horrible smell, it reminded me of the Seinfeld episode. He also forgot to put my car in park before turning it off. Everything was nice until grabbing my car which kind of put me in a bad mood."

  • "The Sangria and Sushi are outstanding and the ambience is great for a cozy dinner. The prices are quite acceptable as the offerings are of high quality. I would definitely go there again!"

  • "The restaurant was very cold, almost uncomfortably cold. The service was just "okay" with a waitress who didn't smile and seemed to have no enthusiasm. The food was very good, and somewhat made up for the lacking friendly service. I would give it another try."

  • "Went here on a Saturday night with a party of 4. For starters, the delivery of the food was at the most awkward times. Appetizers did not come out together - one appetizer came out for one side of the table, leaving the other side empty handed. Same thing applied for the entrees, the sushi entrees were delivered about 20 minutes before the hibachi entrees on the table, leaving the sushi eaters sitting there twiddling their thumbs for the last half hour. Adding to the fact that the rice for the hibachi did not come out for an addition 15 minutes after the main dish. The check was dropped off in the middle of the salad course right in the middle of the table. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable, but like I said the timing was awful"

  • "Nami did have good food but we were the ONLY people in there at 7pm on a Saturday night. The waitress was miserable and acted like we were such a pain to wait on-even though we were her only table. Maybe this is a great lunch place but it was a bit odd how there was on one there on a busy night. The food was really good though and the drinks were spot on."

  • "The food was fabulous and a very nice atmosphere, though if you're seated near the bar it's quite noisy. The only disappointment was they failed twice to be able to find the wine I wanted. though I'm sure that was an abberation."

  • "An all around nice restaurant. Service was friendly and attentive and the food was very good. They have a good selection of rolls, hibachi meals and noodles. Looking forward to eating their again."

  • "The bar tender was very loud. There were some people at the bar shouting as if it is a sports bar"

    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We thought they had hibachi tables but they don't anymore. But you can still order hibachi entrees. They aren't as good when you just order them off the menu without the experience. Other people in my party said their non-seafood entrees were just OK. But everyone agreed, the sushi and other raw seafood was very very good. I would recommend this restaurant for sushi and drinks. The service was incredible. Our waitress was extremely nice and attentive."

  • "I have visited Nami and few times. I enjoy the atmophere and the food. The presentation is very much to my liking and the sushi is great."

  • "I loved the food. I think this is now one of my favorite sushi places in providence. The service was pretty poor. Next time I'll probably eat at the bar."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "The service was wonderful. Performance was great. Did not have to wait for the food. Everything was delicious and the portions are big: we ended up taking home a lot."

  • "Great sushi/sashimi platter for 2 and great surf and turf. Complimentary valet parking. Not crowded."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "The sushi was very good. The avocado was ripe and very good in the spring rolls and on the salad. Although the music was un-necessarily loud, the atmosphere was modern and fun. But.... bread? Really? One does not expect Italian bread to be served with Japanese food. Weird. And, although the dipping sauces were creative, neither yogurt or green curry sauce is Japanese."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "We went there after working a trade show, looking forward to a hibachi dinner. They told us they didn't have a chef for hibachi but could make it in the kitchen. Ok so we ordered our meals, finally came out a long time later and the food was all cold. a party of 8. we accepted the food cold because we didn't want to wait any longer. you would think they would have given us something like meals off the bill and around of drinks. It took arguing with the manager to get 10% off the bill. Never going back."

  • "This was the most bizarre dinner my business partner and I have ever experienced. We are both experienced sushi eaters. Based on the Open Table reviews, this seemed like the logical place in Providence. It seemed to start ok, as we were seated in a booth next to the bar. Between the bread basket served on the table, and the loud patrons at the bar, we probably should have seen the red flags everywhere. When our meal came, the server could not identify the sushi - not a good sign. The final straw was the bar fight that occurred during our meal, when on patron decked another, leaving him on the floor bleeding from his face. Police interviews and medics followed. The wait staff disappeared, and took forever for the check. Enough said?"

  • "We've been frequent visitors of Nami since it first opened. The sushi here is great, and the bar scene is pretty good also. Great for a romantic night out of dinner or to have a few drinks and relax."

  • "This was our second visit to Nami and similar to our first visit the food was outstanding! The menu has a lot of choices for sushi lovers like my husband and non-sushi lovers (like me); and surprisingly they do both VERY well. The service was also top notch. Our server, Amanda was attentive and our drink glasses remained full throughout the night. We highly recommend Nami, definitely a Providence gem!"

  • "Nami has a wide variety of sushi items and other foods that I wouldn't normally eat. However, they have an EXCELLENT fried rice dish that can be made with chicken, shrimp, or pork. For a simple side of $8 fried rice, one wouldn't expect it to be something to rave about, but it is truly delicious!"

  • "Sushi was fresh and delicious. Prices were reasonable. The music wasn't desirable but it's manageable."

  • "Nami is a beautifully appointed rest that offers valet. The menu had plenty of options to choose from for all types of eaters & while their wine list had some good, affordable selections it was far from "the finest selection of wines on Federal Hill!" as exclaimed on their website. The quality of the fish was outstanding. The rolls where huge and very creative, if overly so. They would be better if they had less "stuff" so the quality of the fish could shine through. My big take away from Nami was that is was ridiculously cheap. The rolls were enormous and all around $14. Two pieces of sashimi were about $3. I don't know how they're going to stay in business with that type of pricing structure so I'd go now before the place goes under."
