The food is always good and the staff noticed my note that it was a going away dinner for a friend and added some sweet extra touches to our meal. Fun and delicious dinner!

It was great! Have tried lots of other sushi places in the area and I will say it’s a bit pricy when you can get the same quality at other places for less, but I was very happy to spend my Valentine’s Day here. We had an amazing waiter who was really kind and offered lots of help with the menu! The “Orange Crush” roll was delicious! Overall I would recommend.

Valentines Visit. I had the chefs rolls x 2... Wow!! Some of the most creative sushi I’ve ever eaten. My bride had the filet over lobster fried rice. Fantastic, creative dishes. Great service!! We’ll be back soon.

My husband and I both got sushi. I got the dragon roll and he got the chef special. They were all amazing. The chef special was created specifically for my husband. Our server Dylan was also great and so knowledgeable. We will definitely be back.

The restaurant was clean and inviting. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the sushi and gave us good suggestions. She was very attentive. She shared servicing our table with a second waitress. The second one was excellent, too. She talked about sake and explained the attributes of the different choices. She recommended the sake flight. We’ll definitely try that on our next visit.

Second time in a row that they couldn’t get the Chef’s platter right - this time due to ingredients not available. Our server was absolutely delightful and apologetic and the manager came by and was very gracious. When they get it right, the food is exquisite. We will try again, as we enjoy Nama’s and really want to keep going there.

This is a nice place to eat and the service was good. The sushi rolls I ordered were just okay and the party I was with thought the soy sauce tasted weird. I guess I was just hoping that it would be a better experience than it was. It wasn't bad, but just not as good as I was expecting compaired to the reviews. I would probably try to eat here again and just order different rolls to see if they better than the ones I ordered last time. I only ordered them because my waiter recommended them.

Service was not that great and the table behind us got their food before we did and we ordered before they even arrived but they knew the waitress.. and she passed by us to check on them several times and we never even got waters. Sushi was alright, I’ve had better. We probably won’t be back to this location. It was dead and the drinks were not great and so expensive, not worth the money.

Teens working host stand looked like they didn’t want to be bothered with us. Took FOREVER to get our drinks and appetizer (we had to say something about the appetizer). When the food finally arrived we had to ask for utensils. Food was delicious though. Shame the service didn’t match. Won’t be back.

My boyfriend and I are no strangers to Nama. We came here for dinner on a Thursday for half priced sushi and were met with an insane wait on our sushi orders, close to 1 hour. The restaurant wasn’t packed and it was even a fairly slow night with plenty of tables open. We had to ask our server (who was visibly flustered) on updates for our sushi and when we received it, we could tell the sushi chefs were in a rush to get it out. Our server handled the situation well and offered us free dessert, which we had one of our rolls comped instead. We will be back, but it was a little frustrating as the restaurant wasn’t busy and the sushi was sub par. Im not sure if the restaurant was understaffed but hopefully Nama can bounce back for us next time!

We've eaten at Nama's before and had great meals, but this recent experience was a huge disappointment. The food took forever to get to our table (so they are definitely having kitchen timing issues) and I have to say that the brown rice sushi was TERRIBLE! It appeared cobbled together from an instant commercial rice package — I've had better in a take it grocery store section. The tonkatsu we ordered to bring back home and was dried pork rind type meat. Now, the others who ate more mainstream dishes said their meals were just okay. I felt for our waiter as he is not at fault for poor kitchen/food management. Will not be back.

Nama never fails to amaze. Our rolls were perfect and very filling. I had a smoked salmon roll that included cream cheese, you cannot miss with that. My roll meal included a marvelous seaweed salad. Server was very attentive our water glasses were always full.
