I am an expat from Canada and a world traveller, and in Costa Rica, this is the restaurant that offers the best overall sushi experience. The rolls are of a decent size and although they are not very adventurous, they are very well executed, providing interesting combinations of textures and flavours. Nau gets really busy so the high turnover ensures... More

Very good and fresh sushi! Nothing that will surprise (the rolls could be more elaborated) but good quality food.

Not a fan of this place at all. The service isn't very good, and its just a dull/boring place. They have no real scenery or view or even windows so it just makes for a bland experience. I've had much better food at better places here in SJ.

The restaurant itself is so cool -- straight out of Austin Powers grooviness !! You feel like you are out somewhere fun instantly. There is an excellent variety of rolls from the lighter side to yummy tempura rolls.

Nau is the sushi restaurant in the Real Intercontinental, which is where I always stay for my business trips to San Jose. The menu has a very large and good selection, but what I appreciate most is the staff, who are always attentive. If I have one complaint (and I do), it is the price of the food. Like most... More

My sister went to eat at this restaurant in the Intercontinental and got intoxicated by bad fish in her sushi. She was vomiting for 2 days and the restaurant and the hotel didn't return phone calls. The last and only thing they said was that she was probably allergic to shimp... She got her tests back and she is not... More
