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. The atmosphere is relaxed and everyone seems happy to work there a very friendly. The sushi is great and Santiago and Geneva are super friendly and make the rolls exactly as we request. They... More

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.

We try and make happy hour for the best pricing on food and drinks. So many memorable sushi offerings, no disappointment on selection. Friends and I try to go a couple times a month.

This place features a combination of traditional oriental fare along with a contemporary sushi bar and modern atmostphere. We visited during happy hour and were pleasantly suprised with the prices. We tried everything except desert. The sushi isn't the very best I've had, but the selection, quality, portions, and prices are all very good. The entrees are fairly priced and... More

We've eaten dinner here twice and both times were terrific. The service is fast and friendly. They are helpful when asked questions about the different types of sushi. Good variety of drinks & plenty for the non sushi eaters. I had the tempura vegetables as an appetizer and thought they were cooked just right, I wish there were more! We... More
