Very Good Rolls at a Happy Hour Prices

We went here for the first time this week for happy hour with friends. We shared the stuffed jalapeno and "monkey brains" appetizer. They were both very good and the happy hour prices were great. We also had a couple of the rolls both of which were well prepared and presented. They have a... read more

I come here often and every time it is a great experience. This last visit I must call out our waiter Ruben, we was working the entire floor by himself for awhile and he did an exceptional job with keeping everyone happy. Thanks for the service. The food is great no matter what you get. If you get over there... More

We've been here over 20 times and the service is friendly, prompt and accommodating. The sushi is fresh and presented well. Love the neighborhood feel to the place. It's become the "go to" place. The happy hour prices are great.

We have been there on 3 occasions. All three times we were there during Happy Hour. The food was great as was the service. Price was very reasonable and I highly suggest eating here.

The local review of this restaurant is somehow over rated from reception to food quality. Tried to call in advance for table booking which was apparently not required only to find out that there was no sit available and had to wait to be seated. The sushi was not too fresh and California rolls were too creamy with mayonnaise. Not... More

The atmosphere is nice which is probably the best thing I can say for Nakama (and why I won't go back). The service is pretty terrible, the food is pricey but tastes okay although they almost never had what I wanted so I would have to put my order in only to have the server come back and say "sorry...

My husband and I move to West side and looked for our new sushi hang out. We went to several sushi restaurants and finally ended here.

Love this place! I'm a local here in the west valley and have tried several sushi restaurants and this by far is my favorite. The Jalapeno roll and the gila monster roll are our favorites! Service can be slow at times, but always come here when we want good sushi!

The food was mediocre. The service also. Taste like fast food sushi. Frys sushi is better. The manager has no customer service skills. We were seated quick but after waited 40 mins for our food. The longest wait I've experienced for sushi. The prices are not that great even at happy hour, 3 for a Cali roll, 7 for a... More

I'm going to preface this by mentioning the fact that our bartender notified me that a customer, after being sat at a table, got up and walked across the restaurant to order two adult beverages from her directly. She kindly explained that she would need to see both ID's, to which he replied "You're not going to make this easy... More

Nakama has become our favorite local spot whenever we are in the mood for sushi. Sometimes we eat there in their great Asian decor and other times we do take out.
