Service started a little slow, order not accurate but food was good.
Great lunch date, the food was amazing, and the service was perfect!
The tuna and yellow tail were good but the rolls we had were rather dry without alot of flavor. The meal overall was still good. Our server was very good and was always around to make sure our beverages were full and we had everything we needed. She was also very personable. I liked the atmosphere and while we did not use it, the bar area looked like a cool place for groups to hang out. Also, kind of a random find for a sushi restaurant but they had really good coffee!
I am doing the Whole30 diet and had a special request for my dinner. the server was so pleasant and said it would be no problem! My dinner not only looked amazing but the flavors were amazing!! I really appreciated the restaurant and kitchen being so accommodating!
NARA is always at the top of my list for sushi. Fresh, imaginative and delicious!
Love NARA! Food is always good. Tried the lettuce wraps for the first time and they were best I’ve ever had. This night was a very busy night so service was a little slow, but certainly not bad. Will definitely visit again!!
I have been to Nara several times and never a bad experience.
Great place for some sushi and red sangria!
Great food but your beer menu could use an overhaul! Catch the wave of the craft beer craze. Service was great as well!
We had not been to Nara for several years and I left asking myself, "why not". The food and sake were excellent. Great service and ambiance. I want to go back again. Lots of great items to choose from. Highly recommended!
Loved the live music. He was great. Server was courteous and quick. Food came out very quickly.
Will always be a favorite restaurant of mine. Love the atmosphere.
Chef Koji is the best!
Our server was like a ray of sunshine and everything tasted great :).
the very best sushi in kansas city. I think I've been to all and this was the best service, the best sushi, the best value, and the most accommodating staff.
Great food and service!
Food was good! Drinks were good! I really enjoyed the Sexy Momma Roll. The Mango Tango roll was odd with the jelly like sauce on top. The service was BAD. Our waiter forgot to put in our food order and came back an hour later and retook our order. He brought us another round of drinks which he stated was on him. This was great, except he didn't ask if we wanted more drinks and we weren't in the mood for more drinks so we wasted two perfectly good drinks. I felt is was very unprofessional that we never saw a manager. We arrived at 7:30 and didn't leave until 9:30 due to terrible service. A manger never came to apologize.
Use to be so good. Had not visited in some time... unfortunately... nothing was very good. Nothing seemed fresh... just not good. Will be going else where for my next sushi craving.
Overall very good. Food was out fast, almost too fast. Kind of felt rushed.
Sat at the bar - the bartender was very friendly
Great time for Happy Hour! We were having a late lunch and didn't realize it was Happy Hour at 3 p.m. Sushi was amazing and we had dessert too. The Lava Cake and Rumchata cheesecake bites are wonderful.
The environment was pleasant, however, the tall ceiling and open design made for higher ambient noise level. The service was great and wait staff were very accommodating and professional. The food was absolutely excellent, good portions of fresh sushi with great presentation! This is my third visit and each time has been superb. Ideal place to dine prior to attending events at the Performing Arts Center or other downtown venues.
We had a selection of rolls and everyone was excellent. The service was very friendly and really made for an enjoyable evening. Highly recommended.
It was amazing as always!
This is the second time we have eaten at Nara. We thought we’d give it another try as we’ve been told it’s really good by so many people. Not really sure but I would say this is my 5th or 6th favorite sushi place in town and it’s mostly cause the building is so cool. The food is just ok and they are very proud of it. The options on rolls is nothing special. The wine list is a joke and the cocktails are all sugar bombs. Try it if you must but there are better sushi opinions in the area.
Great sushi, fun atmosphere. Also really enjoyed the crab Rangoon and fried pickles.
So much to choose from. The crispy spring rolls were great. Spicy beef and broccoli was SPICY, but good. My Manhattan was great.
Great girls dinner at Nara! The restaurant is such a cool place with a great drink menu! I wish that the sushi menu was more extensive, completely understand it is tough to have so many options but some others would be nice.
First time at Nara. Pleasantly surprised with large Array of sushi and hot items. Drinks were amazing. Would go again.
Our watress was almost non-existent the entire night. It took 30minutrs to get a drink and there was only 4 other tables there. She kept leaving and wouldn’t take our order and didn’t check up on us. We noticed that all the other servers were on their phone and non-attentive. The sushi came out cold (I ordered Tempura- should have been at least warm) and the watress never brought us soy suace. I had To get up and get it from the surrounding tables. I’m
Leaving this 1star- will never recommend it and will not be back.
We came for a New Years Date and made reservations during the happy hour. We were seated in the back by the window in what seemed to be a VIP lounge that was AMAZING and quiet! Definitely would suggest asking to sit there. The food was perfect and I would suggest getting the miso soup as a starter, Delicious.
The sushi was good. It was not blow your mind sushi...but we are foodies who love eating exotic things. All in all, this is a great spot especially for people who are introducing others to sushi and want a sure win.
The food at Nara is ALWAYS exceptional! This trip I had the Singapore noodles which I would not recommend. If you eat them much these were not as much curry, super oily, and just not very flavorful. I WOULD recommend any of the sushi or the kung paos! The service and value are always great and this is one of my staple spots as I know the good will be good for the most part.
Great food.... my family and I love it here!!! Will definitely recommend
By far some of the best sushi in kc, their regular Asian menu is also stellar. I’d eat there every week if I could.
It was great
Bento box is the perfect lunch!
Good sushi, great service and cocktails. Definitely recommend.
Sat at a high top in the bar area for happy hour. The waiter was friendly and generous. It was bustling and noisy but still able to hear my date easily. Food was delicious as always. A local favorite.
