The sushi is awesome and the atmosphere is always lively and fun.
Cool bathroom sink 😂 Men’s and women’s bathroom sink connected
Excellent menu, great service, beautiful surroundings, good location next to theKauffman Center
My wife and I just moved here and this was hands down the best Sushi we have ever had! Servers were amazing and attentive!
We enjoyed Nara! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We had a great time on our date night and would go back again. We were able to walk to our next destination to listen to Jazz which was nice.
Pretty good sushi restaurant on Main Street in the Crossroads. It was about as I expected.
I like Nara because my GF who has food allergies can usually eat there safely. The quality is good, the atmosphere is nice, and the location is awesome. This time through there was a few hiccups. It took about 30 or so min for us to get our dinner. While I don't mind waiting for quality, it just drug on. Also we had a LARGE bachelorette party sat right behind us. We had to listen to dick whistles be blown, talk about dick, hashtag this, hashtag that, getting my chair bumped over and over by various girls getting up and milling about, hearing their noise level literally take over the whole restaurant. It was really annoying by the end of the night.
Nara is always fun but I was sad they didn’t have a better beer selection. Support local! There are several breweries close it should be an easy fix!
For the price I did not feel the food or drinks stood the value test. Service was great. Noise level was very loud - too loud for conversation.
The food is always spectacular!
My son and I had a great time. Food was great and the service matched.
Great food, live music, awesome ladies night menu and drink specials!
Great food, very fast service. It was loud, making conversation challenging, but overall very good.
Unfortunately our food wasn’t awesome and was overpriced. My salad was bag salad with no dressing. Crab Rangoon was not good. Vegas roll.. not what I have had before. Actually pretty disappointed.
Great food and good value for your money! The service was outstanding and they sat us early.
Nara for lunch was fantastic. We set the reservation ahead of time and were well taken care of during the course of our lunch.
Delicious Bento Box lunch!
My husband and I were in a group of six. We were seated at a table that was small for six people. Other than being a bit crowded, we enjoyed Nara. The lettuce wraps, the miso soup, the beef and broccoli, and the sushi were especially good. I had a mojito with sake that was outstanding.
Food is great but it’s soooo loud. Seating is very tight, not the place for a private conversation. You also seem to get run over by wait staff frequently. Great value for quality of sushi.
Service was very slow..... we got there for 6:30 and it took 10-15 minutes before a waitress came to our table. Took forever to get drinks...... we left around 8:15..... took a while for a checks to come back and for our cards to come back. I’ll still go back as the food was amazing but disappointed with the service
Great sushi! Great service! Only wished we sat on the window side.
Ladies night dinner menu is great. Good food
The meal was cute. The section we were given was cute. Natalie had a fat booty lol my wife says. Hahaha. Love ya nat. Deuces
The Mr. Lobster roll was our favorite
Food was awesome and portion sizes large!
Great sushi. Really fun place. We had a party of 6, some with food issues (gluten/dairy), and there was something for everyone. The jalapeño popper roll was amazing.
The crab cakes had more breading than I like. Out of the 3 rolls purchased 1 was good. Not sure if the description of the rolls were great because the 2 that weren't great weren't what we were expecting. Overall, it was ok. I'm not rushing to go back.
This was our second visit and Nara did not disappoint. First time at the happy hour which is outstanding. Will be back.
Nara has one of the best Happy Hours in Kansas City. Our group always enjoys meeting there.
YUKI, the server we were lucky enough to have is very good at his job. Wednesday is Ladies Night which is very busy.. But he was so professional, very energetic and made our table feel special. The food is great.. I know this BUT Yuki!!!! I'm still impressed by his service and it's been two days.
We love Nara, especially the Wednesday night ladies night specials...can't be beat! Great sangria, the veggie and Vegas rolls are favorites. Service is always good as well.
Always a great place
Came here for my husband's birthday since he loves sushi! And the food was wonderful! He loved his sushi and I couldnt get enough of my teriyaki salmon. Only issue was once we got our food, the waiter VANISHED! We watched him walk back and forth and even talk to the table next to us but we sat there for a while with our empty plates in front of us. No offer of dessert menu (which was what we were waiting for) or our check. When we did get our dessert it was a Lava cake.! Yummy! Not much lava but still so good!
We will come back because the food is just that good. We will probably dress a little better too, since it was a little more upper class vibe than we are use too.
Awesome service. Great food. Traditional Asian fusion type foods, but they add just that little bit extra to each dish creating a noticeable distinction that elevates their food above what you expect. We definitely will be adding Nara to the pool of our go-to restaurants.
Although I made this reservation several days in advance, they placed us in an overflow area at the front of the restaurant near the door. Not sure I will visit again without calling directly to specify the seating location.
This was a good place for a date night. Not blown away by the food, but a good sushi spot for being in the middle of the country. Service was pretty great as well.
Delicious sushi, great cocktails, convenient location to the Kauffman Center and other downtown locations.
We were a little disappointed. The prices for many of the items did not appear to have any real value, as the food was nothing super special. Our server was friendly and good feel to the place but the value was simply not there.
Great food, great house cocktails, and fun atmosphere.
Super great tasting sushi and half price drinks when we went on a Thursday. Service was quick.
