My husband and I enjoyed our experience at Nami. The service was great! The sushi and sashimi was EXCELLENT! This is our new favorite sushi place in Rhode Island! Can't wait to venture back!
I do have to say there was an incredibly loud and obnoxious guy at the bar, who should have been told to simmer down, even our waitress commented to us how "annoying" he was. Other than that, EXCELLENT. I would highly recommend NAMI to my friends.

Sushi on Federal Hill!
Nami has beautiful decor. It was quiet on a Saturday evening @ 6. A basket of multigrain bread with 2 sauces arrived first, which seemed out of place at a Japanese restaurant. We shared the vegetable tempura appetizer, which was standard in terms of quality, taste, and size. We split a bottle of flavored saki, which was not worth the cost. We ordered several classic rolls, which were all very well made. The proportion and freshness of the ingredients was perfect. I would certainly go back if in the area and craving good sushi!

Friendly Japanese fine dining
The service was very prompt and friendly. Our waitress gave good, genuine advice and paid great attention to us even though we were the only ones outside. The beef negimaki looked like it was alive but the first initial bites were juicy with teriyaki sauce. It was good but we'll try something new next time. My King's Throne roll was very good. I've never had sushi topped with chunks of lobster before. And her teriyaki chicken was very tender and juicy.

Impressive Great Attn to Details
Made a last min res. for 4 ppl on a busy Friday night, had no idea what to expect. As soon as we opened the door, it was clear we had made a great choice. The ambiance was great, service a 10, and the details were so well thought out. Next time we come back, it will be with more people to hit up the hibachi!

A great night
We visited Nami for a second time to celebrate my son's birthday. Our hostess, Wendy, went out of her way to make us all feel so special and to make sure our night was remarkable. It was our first time at the Hibachi table, which was both entertaining and delicious! We will recommend Nami to all of our friends and will be regulars there ourselves!

Myself and my husband visited this restaurant on a Friday evening and it was fabulous. I was nervous because it is located on Federal Hill, which can be a bit hectic. However, once we got there it was really nice and fairly quiet. We made reservations for 6PM, so I cannot say how busy it would become if you waited until later in the evening, but 6 was nice enough to really enjoy our time. The wine was great, the food was delicious, and we will definitely be back again!

Naomi is a very good resturant in a very vibrant neighborhood in Providence. The sushi is very good and the service is excellent. The restaurant is spacious and has a nice hibachi cooking section as well. We enjoyed our family time at Nami and would go back again for a future event.

Great food and service!
It was my idea to go to this restaurant with 5 of my friends, from going once before with coworkers. They loved it, loved the food and service. "Good choice, Emi!"

This was my first time at Nami. The staff was very friendly from the moment we walked in. The atmosphere was great! We were seated at a booth next to the sushi bar. Although we didn't choose the hibachi seating, it looked really fun! The sushi was awesome (I'm really picky when it comes to sushi). I will definitely be back!

Yummy sushi and nice atmosphere
It was a beautiful night so we sat outside. Inside was elegant, but we wanted to take advantage of the lovely summer evening. The sushi was fresh, yummy and creative. The best part was that they were able to make it with brown rice for a much healthier version!

Everything from the lemon meringue martini to the sushi to the main entrees were delectable! The best meal I have had in a long time! Absolutely worth the money!

Sushi bento and platters beautifull
Sushi bento and platters beautifully presented. Refreshing salad though hidden cheese did not meet my dietary nor palate tastes. Extremely and attentive server.

Great sushi, too cheap prices.
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.

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

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!

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!

From beginning to end the service was top notch, the food was delicious and the presentation was great. I will definitely return soon.

Awesome Sushi, Great Bar
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.

Bread w/ Sushi?
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.

Great sushi/sashimi platter
Great sushi/sashimi platter for 2 and great surf and turf. Complimentary valet parking. Not crowded.

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.

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.

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.
