    Our server (didn’t get his name) from Washington state went above and beyond we could have expected. My guests from L.A. & Las Vegas were amazed. Mimosa wasn’t on the drinks menu but he got it for 4 of us & served it table side like it was champagne! We asked for edamame (served only at dinner) & he got it! The service at Nami Kaze is why I’m there at least once a month. The restaurant doesn’t disappoint!

    I was able to make a last minute reservation which turned out great. Took my Mom here for lunch. She had the shrimp sandwiches with fries. I had the chicken and poke lunch. The food was fresh and delicious. It was busy so we sat on the counter which was fine. We watched the prep area and just had a nice lunch.

Restrooms were also clean and nice! A little pricey but worth it for the great experience! Looking forward to returning!

    Cute restaurant with a laid back vibe. The service (especially Lauren) was outstanding. We loved the smaller plates so we could try more items, and the farm to table freshness combined with creativity will keep bringing us back here for more. Additionally, they were so accommodating for dietary restrictions. LOVE IT!

    Big fan! My colleague has been telling me to go here for years and my friend and I finally followed through. We will definitely be back! The service was lovely, the food was excellent- such great flavors! And there was really something for everyone. Both of us have some serious food allergies and we could eat seafood and have some remarkable vegetarian fare. I didn't expect to come out liking the vegetable based dishes so much! And the server and kitchen were so kind and accommodating (I am very embarrassed about and self conscious over asking people to mind my allergy.)! We started with a couple of small plates and then kept ordering more vegetables. The miso soup is also some of the best I've ever had. Also, the cocktails were wonderful. We wished we had room for desert but I guess we'll just have to come back :)

    Wonderful dining experience and definitely coming again. It was a busy and lively day so I was surprised that our hostess was able to accommodate us in a booth as my friend is still very Covid cautious. Our waiter BJ was very attentive and made great suggestions for our meal. We had the Beer Battered Fish, Honey Shrimp Waffle …and the best was the Spicy Cauliflower (I could sprinkle that topping on anything and call it a meal). But beside the great meal was BJ… He took very good care of us and our requests. Servers like him make the experience exceptional!!

    We had the Ulu tots, Bok choy, seasonal lettuces, scallops, pork belly, beef cheek and lobster pasta AND then the cheesecake and semi-freddo for dessert. I’d get everything again except for the beef cheek and cheesecake and only because I’d want to try new things! The food was absolutely excellent! Gotta get the the tots to start and our sever was right to suggest two orders for the 4 of us, they went quick!

    The food is superb. The hamachi roll with yuzu is amazing. The green beans had the right amount of spice. The corn fritters also were excellent. I don’t like the order from the app at the table service. It was not always intuitive and takes away from the overall ambiance.
