While touring universities with my son we stayed in Menlo Park. After reading various reviews, I looked in the windows at Naomi before deciding to "risk" it.

Our family has been a patron of Naomi sushi for over 10 years. We have enjoyed the food, amiance and the charm and expertise of Iwa-San. Last night we were very disappointed in the experience. We aren't sure what change in policy has taken place but no longer were we able to place our orders directly with the sushiya-San. Instead... More

I was negatively astounded by the poor sushi at Naomi today. Long term customer and I eat sushi around the world and frequently. I take my staff regularly.The Mugoro & , hamachi were stale and fishy,and I ordered a special lobster tempura roll. It was neither lobster nor tempura as a roll The service was as good as always, but... More

This restaurant boasts an incredible variety of fresh sushi and sashimi. In addition the selection of rolls is fantastic and creative. You can order flights of sake to complement the delicious fare.

Naomi has a ten seat sushi bar but is not a super large restaurant. Sato san and the owner personally go to the morning fish market and select the fish. Sato san, back from another stint in Hawaii, was once voted second best sushi chef in the bay area. Sato san keeps the uni wrapped and away from light. It... More

I have been to Naomi a few times a year most of this millenium -- Ewa the owner/chef is a master of his craft with Sushi, and knows a lot about Sake. He does Sake tastings/pairings that are very popular a few times per year. But our most pleasant and repeatable times are sitting at the sushi bar and ordering... More

My local is Akasake, down the street, a humble, less expensive place with less authenticity and panache, but great value and great staff. I ventured out to Naomi, one night, and was impressed by the superior atmosphere, Sushi specials (bluefin sashimi highly recommended) and the tempura was terrific too. Huge sake selection with great samplers.

I don't get how anyone can say this is average! wow. They made a mistake sitting at a table I guess, which I have never done. Sit at the bar and let the owner and chef just run wild with his imagination. I've never had such amazing, inventive, gorgeous and delicious sushi in all my life. I had no idea... More
