BEST SUSHI AROUND!

Best Sushi around! Awesome head chef, and wonderful management. The view of the lake is spectacular and offers a causal yet sophisticated environment. Great place for a causal dinner or large party. Or even business meeting! I love Nami Asian Bistro!

Nami's has great service and a beautiful outdoor porch for you to enjoy the sunset. The sushi is very fresh and there are lots of choices on the menu. The wait staff are friendly and efficient. It is a nice place to go to enjoy happy hour and a relaxed dinner. You can also come by boat!

We love going to Nami for sushi. The rolls and sashimi never disappoint. Service is professional and friendly. Would recommend making reservations, especially on weekends in the summer.

Drove from Anderson and not worth the 20 minutes really... Small sushi menu and wasn't anything special. Waiter got order wrong. Food was fine but not earth shattering. Won't make the drive again... Have had better elsewhere.

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. (the one thing they lack is more choices for sushi combination dinners).... 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
