Nama Sushi Bar- Knoxville
Great food and service
This is usually my favorite Knoxville sushi restaurant, but their new pandemic menu is very very small and disappointing. The food was still good and we were able to find things to order, but I really missed the large selection of rolls...
First time visiting one of the Nama locations and it was great! Lovely sushi rolls and friendly, attentive staff.
Food is always DELICIOUS!
Great experience for a date. Service was outstanding and the food was incredible. We got the ex-girlfriend, soy joy, miso soup, edemame. Our favorite was the ex- girlfriend roll. Would definitely recommend this place!
The soy joy, ex girlfriend, and chefs special were amazing! I definitely recommend getting the chefs special it’s really fun, you let them know what you do and don’t like and they come up with a unique roll for you!
We had heard great things about Nama and weren't disappointed. We had booked a reservation for 8:15 on Saturday night and were led to our table immediately. Social distancing was in effect so the restaurant was somewhat subdued. Our server advised us if we would let her know our preferences the chef would create a few original sushi rolls for us. We were thrilled with the outcome! I highly recommend this as a chance to sample original rolls created just for your taste! We will definitely be back!
We were there over the weekend and decided to sit outside. There were way understaffed so the service was very slow. Additionally the rolls were just avergae compared to previous experiences dining here. Hope they make the right adjustments to make this a fun place to dine in the future.
Only wish they had more options of rolls! There is only one that is tuna in addition to ordering Maki. Most of the rolls they have on their menu has crab or shrimp. Limited menu but not a ton of options for fish in the rolls.
Food was impressive and service was very pleasing. The area was nice and quiet to make for a relaxing ambiance to have good food and conversation.
First sushi since quarantine. Had an amazing time, great drinks, great atmosphere, amazing service and truly incredible sushi! Went for lunch on a whim and will most definitely be back soon!
Such a great meal my wife and I went back the next night. Sat on patio and just enjoyed the food and view.
Nama Sushi was a fabulous find in the city ! With a number of creative rolls on the menu, a great value on the sushi/sashimi (# of pieces for the price), and freshness of the selections across the board, we were not disappointed. We'll definitely be back !
The restaurant was very clean and requiring customers to social distance
Great food, great atmosphere, and our waitress was very kind and personable. Will definitely be back for that soy joy!
The host was extremely rude and the waitress was slow
Food excellent. Ambience great. But Waiter inattentive and forced us to wait for lengthy period before he/she took our order. He/she delivered the wrong drink. He/she said they would correct it but never came back. Rather than bringing all our sushi at once they decided to bring it in “rounds” which has not ever been our experience at any sushi restaurant and delayed the dinner longer and not what we wanted especially when we were under a schedule. When it was time to pay, I had to search the waiter to pay.
Took my 10 year old son out for a boys’ night. The service was amazing and the food was delicious!!!
Nice place for a late Friday evening meal. The sushi is fresh and wonderful. Also recommend the Wasabi Hummus appetizer. Recommend!
Always a pleasure.
Consistently great food and service. I will definitely be back!
Great!!! Thank you
Service was terrible and usually the crunchy shrimp comes out warm but it taste like it had sat in the back all week. We still enjoyed it but it could of been better
Don't order the calamari. Overcooked and chewy. I thought this would be the place to try it but they really missed the mark.
Ordered Chef's sushi. Next time would rather pick my own.
Not sure I would go back.
I believe her name was Katie. We had a large group (15), on a busy Saturday. She completely accommodated our large group and had such a great attitude. I wish I could remember our servers name. She was super awesome also!!
great! Cheap since it was half price and good service and value as well
My girlfriend and I met in Knoxville and one of my friends recommended Nama Sushi! It was very good and we will be coming back when we are in town again!
I usually go to nana a couple times a month and it has never disappointed. It is a smaller space so it can be a little crowded and load but still very worth it.
Great food. Great service. As usual!
Service was great.
Great food, exceptional service
It was great! Great food, great service, all around great!
Excellent food and presentation. It was a little on the loud side, although we were in the center of the restaurant. I think a better spot for being able to have a nice conversation without having to speak to loud would be in a booth. It took a little longer than expected to get our drinks and food but really it wasn't that bad. I was starving and wanted food in my belly immediately. Overall, I was pleased with the experience.
Really enjoyed our sushi dinner at Nama. Easy reservation for our desired time on Open Table. Great service and outstanding chef’s choice rolls that were unique and delicious.
Christmas gift for mother in law. Nama’s is always great! The food and drinks are great. The service is spot on! I can’t wait until the next time I can go. Nama’s is my go to place in Knoxville.
Broadway Show at TN Theater / Date night!
All was great. However, they didn’t give me credit toward showing up for my reservation so the opentable app thinks I’m a no-show. If you get three these in a 12 month period your membership gets suspended. Since I was notified by the app that I was a no-show and I responded saying we did make it and I have not heard back from anyone to know if the issue had been cleared up. I sure would love to hear from someone on this. Not mad here, just trying to communicate. And I would like to have my points for using the app to book this reservation. Thank you.
Great food and service. We had 5 adults and 2 small children so we went to a 5 pm reservation. There was only 1 other table which is unheard of in this usually very busy spot.
Clean and nice experience. Great place to take a friend for his/her birthday!
