High quality sushi!

Naked fish is known around South Lake Tahoe for having the best quality fish for its sushi and that was true when I last visited. The happy hour specials (before and after the dinner rush, sun-thurs) really increase the value. The staff wasn't very responsive or helpful but it was a delicious meal.

You have to sit at the sushi bar to get the full effect. Gilbert and Caesar are the best combo of sushi chefs around, providing plenty of entertainment while you eat the wide variety of delectables! From the miso soup to California rolls to Nigiri to Unagi to the grand finale, if it is your birthday (or not)!! A cake-type... More

Thank GOD my son chose the Naked Fish for our first dinner in Tahoe. Everything we had was simply amazing, from the miso soup, to the Hot n Wild, to the Pork Belly, to the California Roll, to the Sierra Powder Roll. I was impressed with the presentation, and the freshness of each dish. Our Green Tea Tempura Ice Cream... More

Few weeks ago stopped and ate at Naked Fish in South Lake Tahoe. It was so good, I enjoyed everything we ate. I recommend you try one of the chefs specials. Shane was our sushi chef, good guy, good atmosphere , all around good experience.

Like many US eateries, and in common with most SLT places, the ambience is 'Diner'. The food is excellent - so don't be put of by the poor service or lack of any attempt to make it feel like anything better than a take-away at home. It was our first visit, and yes we would certainly go back, but only... More

We've eaten sushi all over the world and this remains our fav in the US......we always incorporate NF into our trips to SLT. Creative food, interactive chefs, wait staff attentive without being obsequious combined in a relaxed authentic small town feel. Skip all the restaurants in the area and eat here every night ..... We have a meeting in SB... More

Went on a Sunday night and they were not seating anyone even though there were several empty tables as their kitchen was backed-up. Finally got seated and were told by our server that we probably should order an appetizer as their kitchen was backed-up. Seemed that the appetizer should be on the house under those circumstances as an apology. Regardless,... More

We tried several sushi places in south lake, but no longer frequent any but Naked Fish. All our friends we bring also agree this place rocks. LOVE the Peruvian scallops, the bbq albacore and fresh catch menu for sashimi. Naked Fish has a line waiting on fri and sat nights for a reason. I will say if there is a... More
