If you have a "yen" (pun intended) to spend a lot of money for a little bit of very good food, I highly recommend you go to Nama's. It has been two hours since I finished my $30 dinner at Nama's and I'm hungry again....More

Waited on our food for 45 minutes with only drinks having been served. Sushi was just "ok". Pretty bland compared to other restaurants in town. Management needs to re-evalutate service load and jump in when there are more than can be served by one person.

Great sushi spot. Often nice wine specials. Can be crowded so we often go late. We enjoy the chill ambience but the food and the solid service are what bring us back. The Big orange roll is my fav. Though not a roll at all.

The crab drip is absolutely wonderful. The sushi is great. The service can be questionable but also great and attentive. It just depends on the day, the time of day, and the server. Overall, usually pleasant experience.
