    Amazing food, per usual, and the server was excellent. Only issue is sometimes the seating; we are often seated in very loud and/or uncomfortable seats. However, they are usually amenable to moving you if you ask, but I still always feel bad...even when there are wide open tables in the back.

    Excellent food and service. The booth couches were worn down and showing a lot of age which is why I took a star off the review. The two seats for our table both had worn out color spots and were on the verge of tearing open. A little dark inside for my tastes but overall a good place for food in the area.

    Some of the food was excellent, scallops, prawns in particular Some was good, but clearly not the best quality, such as yellow fin tuna However the vegetables tasted like they cam from a mixed bag of froen vegetables from the supermarket and were boiled to death before serving Seating in the establishment was very old and worn However, staff were very friendly, which was a bonus Given the price of the bill, I am disappointed and will not return I do give them credit for free car parking though

    Great food and great atmosphere on Federal Hill. Food was a bit pricey, but it is on a main attractive strip in Providence. Definitely worth the the trip to try this place, would recommend it to others and also go back.

    First time here and we only tried the sushi and it was amazing. Server was very nice and attentive, sashimi and rolls were delicious. About $20 per roll, wasn’t cheap but they were great. They were also big, almost hard to fit in your mouth so if you like smaller rolls maybe get something simple. Overall good i would come again.

    We stopped at Nani for a quick meal before catching a train. We let our server know about our schedule issue and he was super accommodating in getting our food out quickly. The food was great. The ambiance was good. I think the seats that are further from the bar have better ambiance. Food was great.

    Phenomenal… have to say that I have not had such a great experience in a long time. Attentive staff, great food and drinks. And from a freshness standpoint the sushi was amazing. I have not had such quality sushi in a long time. Our waiter was on it the entire time will be requesting him again in the future. We definitely will be back.

    Had a reservation at 8, with request to not sit in the bar area. Didn’t get seated until 8:30, and was put in the bar area. Asked to be moved, only to be moved to another spot in the bar area. Service was super slow. Asked for the sake menu, which she had to go ask the bartender (no big deal) until what I got was completely opposite of what I asked for only to be told after they don’t have any. Ordered sushi and wasn’t given chop sticks or anything sushi related for that manner. Had to ask for it and have to wait 10 mins to get chopsticks and soy sauce while I stare at my food. Food was ok at best, Lost my appetite by the time our dinner order came out ..... this was my 2nd time here and I had the same experience the first time, so gave it another shot only to confirm I’m not coming back ....I’m all set with this place 🤷🏻‍♂️✌🏽

    Scheduled a reservation at Nami for my birthday dinner, but the restaurant was closed when we arrived. We had had some bad weather come the day before, so I’m assuming this is why, but the restaurant did not even contact me to cancel the reservation.
