I originally picked this place because I was in the mood for sushi. Well, there was no sushi...but there was a good selection of cooked Japanese specialties. I had a grilled mackerel, which was very good, and a side of edamame. The portions are surprisingly large for a Japanese restaurant, so you definitely won't go hungry!

I always rely in TA when traveling, but when we pulled in to the parking lot and saw this nondescript restaurant in the middle of nowhere, North of Merced, I thought TA had finally blown it. Wrong!! Nagame has first rate Japanese food and decent sashimi, served by a very friendly and genuine waitress, at a modest price. We had... More

This has been my grandma's favorite for many years so when she visits I like to take her and the food has always been spot on.

Most consistent food ever always wonderful best Japanese food ever!!! Teriyaki Chicken is the best, and I've tried a lot all over the world.

Hours can be weird, but worth the minor inconvenience. Very popular with the locals.

We have been eating at Nagames for at least 15 years. The food is consistently fresh, well prepared and delicious! The staff is friendly too. The restaurant is very neat and clean but not at all luxurious... clean matters more than luxury to us. We highly recommend Nagame's.

My go to place in Merced for Japanese food. A little out of the way (on the outskirts of town, tucked under the freeway) but that only means they have easy parking. The food is consistently good, fresh and flavorful. The service efficient and friendly. The menu is not over the top with every option under the sun but covers... More

Another must eat in Merced. Their lunch specials start with a shredded cabbage salad, miso soup and then the main dish comes with pan fried veggies and rice. The Sesame chicken is breaded and fried, then has a light drizzle of their teriyaki sauce. It sounds heavey, but it is actually heavenly - light and crispy goodness. Ask for some... More
