I went here with a small group of friends for my first Japanese tasting experience. I had a Bento box which gave me a varied selection and I absolutely loved it. It was nice to try something different. The surface was very polite though a bit formal ...I guess what you might expect in a Japanese restaurant.

Every time I go to Nara I find the same consistent high quality food and friendly staff. I love their Sashimi Platter and Tempura Prawns, and their Seaweed Salad is YUMM! They tell me their fish comes daily from the Portsmouth fish market and I believe them, the quality shines through and through.

I visited Nara Sushi for lunch, the bento boxes are good value and a large portion. The food tasted as though it had been freshly made and it was nicely presented. The service was friendly and attentive, although the restaurant was quiet so I would expect to be well looked after. The only real negatives about the restaurant were that... More

We are now firm regulars to Nara! Think wagamama but better! Think to sushi but better! Friendly staff, brilliant food freshly made, even the noodles! If recommend the hot pot to anyone, with unlimited home made sushi!

Decided to try this place having finally been told about this, being a sushi lover and was impressed. Having never been to japan and experiences of sushi in America, London and yo sushi My experience is limited, however I have been back here several times and will continue to do so. It is much better than yo sushi and cheaper... More

I'm a regular as I love Japanese food. Whilst not perfect it never disappoints. I like the quiet atmosphere and attentive service.

Sorry to say but it was opened by a Japanese owner originally now it seems run by either Korean or Chinese people. Presentation is good but selection is poor although staff are always nice & helpful.

We have just had a sushi feast from Nara, this time to celebrate Christmas Eve. It was absolutely delicious, as usual, and we plan to continue this tradition each year because it was so good!

This is an amazing restaurant, if you love Japanese food! It's located opposite Tesco in Albert Road. The restaurant is normally half empty, with a quiet atmosphere, this is possibly due to its location, because its not in the hub of Albert Road. From the outside of the restaurant you can't really see into it that well, as there are... More

I have been here on several occasions and usually order the mixed bento box. This is one of the best choices on the menu as it has a variety of food items in one box. The selection is good and the food is delicious. The decor is nice but the atmosphere is quiet. We have also ordered take away delivery... More
