    Wonderful variety of flavors. I prefer a berry salad and nigiri sushi. Chef's selection is always interesting varied and a mix between subtle and profound flavors. Foodies should enjoy themselves here. I also find the food incredibly healthy and alive. Can't recommend it enough.

    Easily the best and most inventive food I’ve had in a very long time. Lobster salad roll with seared salmon was amazing! And the shrimp toast Benedict was like nothing I’ve ever had. The sous vide eggs as a dipping sauce!!! So excited to go back already as there are so many interesting things to try. The system of ordering and paying on your phone is really clever. We didn’t split our check, but if you come with a group this is a great way to split up the tab in whatever way you wish. And you can order additional items anytime you want. Don’t have to wait for someone to come by. That said, the staff were so attentive and helpful that if you did need to ask about something or needed help with an order you wouldn’t have to wait. And they seem genuinely interested in your feedback. Great experience!!

    Excellent on all levels! We were hungry for both a traditional Japanese breakfast and hotcakes! Well, we even got some sushi too! Their menu, ordering and payment process allowed us to order and eat at our pace and to leave when we were done without the wait. It’s a familiar, yet, innovative process that will become common practice throughout the industry. We will return, often.

    First time to Nami Kaze and the experience was great. The food was excellent, staff very friendly and the space was simply but elegantly decorated. We saw lots of people having business mtgs/lunches but it is a great place for anyone who appreciates good food and quick service. Will be back!

    I enjoyed the meal with my friends. The food was very good. I ate the Ahi Tsukune Loco Moco, we shared the Hauula Tomato salad, and the Thai Crunch Roll. I look forward to going back and trying some of their other dishes. I like ordering with the toasttab website. It makes it very easy.

    This is a definite must try. The ambiance and the service was top notch. The server was very helpful and their ordering service is fully digital. The food came out in a timely manner. We had the spicy sushi roll, the shrimp waffle, and the chicken platter. The shrimp waffle had a nice twist to it. The syrup has a blend of sweet and sour. They are still working on their liquor license which they said that they should have by October at the latest. I would give it a 10 out of 10 for the service. A 9 out 10 for the overall vibe. I will definitely go back.

    Nami Kaze never disappoints and has become one of our favorite spots to bring guests to “try something new.” The food has been consistently delicious, utilizing familiar flavors in unique and innovate ways. Staff is always friendly, informed, and helpful. We really appreciated them going above and beyond at our most recent visit to accommodate our party with a baby. Not to mention for the quality and amount of food received, prices are more than reasonable. Anyone looking to try something they can’t get anywhere else should definitely give Nami Kaze a try!

    top favorite dishes were the watercress salad, fish and chips and the Lucky Cat dessert. But don't get me wrong, we also ordered the Walnut shrimp waffles, eggs Benedict, ginger chicken and spicy califlower. They were all good, but we had our favorites. Atmosphere is great, staff is awesome. Free parking is a plus. Can't wait till they are full speed breakfast, lunch and dinner. This is the place to go. Congrats to all. Great job!

    Amazing offerings that are well thought out and delicious. Their take on Benedict is delicious. The acidic side salad cuts the richness of the hollandaise and eggs making you want to go back for more. Service is excellent. Suggestions are spot on and extremely helpful. Even with a full dining room they make you feel like you are the only one there. The decor is beautiful yet comfortable and welcoming. Can't wait for them to open for dinner.

Our server BJ was so patient with us technically challenged kupunas! I’m almost afraid of telling too many people about this great place that I wouldn’t get a reservation for myself next time lol
