This is an old school Japanese place with great décor and impeccable service. The sushi was fine, but nothing to get crazy about. Clearly it was fresh and cleanly prepared. The grill is pretty cool with the cook to order option. One knock is the restaurant is very slow, we were there for 3 hours or something on a business... More

My colleague and I were simply walking from one appointment to the next hoping to find a great lunch location. We did at Nami. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere nice and clean and the staff and service terrific.

Often we crave a comfort experience, where the staff are understatedly gracious and the sushi chef anticipates our preference, and in the order we enjoy. No, this is not your mother serving sushi. However, it is as close as you can get to that. The fish is perennially fresh, replenished almost daily. The robata bar has superb fish offerings, although... More

A colleague treated me to dinner here. It was during Winterlicious, and it was busy! The service and food were both of very high quality. I loved the decor. Everything was very clean, and it was obvious that this establishment is very well run. The beef sashimi was outstanding. I will absolutely dine here again and would highly recommend it.... More

Used to be very good. But has gone downhill. At one time the food was very good. There are so many other better places in Toronto for sushi

Terrific quality here at Nami. I sat at the sushi bar and observed the chefs at work, what a pleasure! They carefully sharpened their knives before every customer, working with speed and precision. From the quality of the fish, to the beautiful cuts, to the perfect flavouring of the rice, this was a memorable dinner and I'm sure to be... More

My boyfriend and I went for a late dinner last night. We ordered a seafood salad and kaiso salad to start, the premium sushi dinner, the black cod, tuna tataki and an a la carte order of tamago. Before our meal came, I was just looking around when I saw one of the sushi chefs drop a decorative carrot piece... More

From the moment you come in you know this will be good. The authentic Japanese dresses and the lighting set the scene. The booths are great if available and the menu is very complete. The rolls are extra special and beautifully presented. When the bill arrives you will be pleasantly surprised as you would expect to pay more for. Highly... More
