Great Variety, Great Food

This place offers casual atmosphere but an up-scale quality food and is one of my favorite Sushi restaurants ever. Great variety of menu items for non-sushi eaters and excellent nigiri-sushi or sashimi for those who like it raw. Very reasonable prices for both specialty and regular sushi rolls... read more

Nami is an elegant restaurant that serves a wide variety of Asian specialities, including lobster roll sushi that is the best I have ever eaten. In addition, their steaks are the best in the area. Wait staff is well trained and attentive. The lake views are beautiful.

This is one of the finest resturants in the Upstate. The food is always exceptional, the servers are well trained, and the evening is a great success. While Nami's is in our "back yard", it is a favorite. If Clemson has a game on, better get reservations. My favorite is the Samari roll. No one has anything to touch it.... More

We had valentines dinner here and really enjoyed it. My wife's steak was perfectly cooked. My salmon was very good. The salads were not the best, but the entrees more than compensated for them. We will definitely be back!

Just started eating sushi, so if you want good service, good choices, you will enjoy eating here. They have excellent specials if you do not like sushi, it is worth the drive. A tad pricey, but you will leave with left overs.

Excellent Sushi, service, and location (especially if you have a boat on Hartwell.) This place rivals any in the state - as far as I know... certainly as good as you can get in Atlanta. Prices were great. Service was great. Food was great. Atmosphere is OK, but hey, it's on a lake! We met the manager Pam McCraken. Nice... More

Great place to visit. Off the beaten path. Plenty of parking or drive your boat to the marina. Fabulous menu and wine list. Very friendly staff however not very educated in the wine area but super nice! You will not be disappointed.

The freshest and most tasty sushi and sashimi, get the assortment. The steak was delicious and the desert was wonderful. I normally don't but it was big enough to share with my wife!! You need to make a reservation; it is usually very busy...

The senior chef of Nami is Mr. Fukahari-san; a Japan trained sushi chef that brings superior traditional sushi, sashimi, and rolls to the citizens of the world. Located on beautiful Lake Hartwell this slightly remote restaurant is worth the drive to experience. I have heard the restaurant serves great cooked steaks and seafood, but my family and friends have always... More
