Hidden away location. The restaurant has an interesting look and architecture. Service was outstanding. Way to many menu items with some duplication causing confusion. However, the food was excellent. One thing to note is that the bar can't prepare mixed drinks. Stick to Sake, beer and wine.

my wife and I were in the area on vacation and wanted to go to a sushi restaurant near where we were staying so I relied on tripadvisor reviews. Although it was the second rated sushi restaurant in South Portland we chose this over the other ( the top is actually in the Maine Mall and only has 4 reviews)... More

We eat here probably once a month and love it! The atmosphere is not as posh as some of the other sushi restaurants but the food is consistently delicious.

I've gone here often over the past few years and I still consider this to be one of the best sushi places I've been to. It's a fairly small place and they do offer a menu of choices outside of just sushi but sushi is all I ever eat here and all I want to have. I've been here at... More

My first time here. The Food was good, although I didn't get alot of food for $10.50. I ordered spicy scallops. I got 8 scallops wrapped in rice and spicy sauce. No rice side dish unless you order separately. My wife had spicy chicken which she liked and got a good portion. My grandaughter had beef Teriyaki. She loved it.... More

I frequently eat at Nara Sushi. The food is always made with the freshest ingredients which makes this sushi restaurant stand out as better than many others. The next part that makes Nara stand out is value. The price you pay is very reasonable.

My wife and I have been a big fan of Nara Sushi over the past few years, but found our most recent experience on a Friday night to be our last. I'm not sure if there has been a change in management or staffing, but the entrees we ordered were far below par in terms of preparation and overall palatability,... More

Stopped here for Lunch with my sister and her family. The place has the atmosphere of a family owned restaurant, which I always like. The atmosphere was a bit mundane, but the food was very good,.The complimentary appetizers were interesting and the service was nice, thought nothing out of the ordinary. One nice thing was the very wide menu, featuring... More

Stopped in for a late lunch on the recommendation of our daughter. Just about all the other dining in this neck of the woods is national chains. Was a bit nervous when we realized we were the only folks there, but the waitperson was friendly and knew her stuff on the menu, making some excellent recommendations. They start you off... More

Nara is our go to sushi place around the Portland area. The location is more accessible for us than the Old Port area and they have parking right in front.They welcome you with smiles and very friendly and prompt service. We find the variety, which they add to frequently, to be great for both the raw sushi lover and the... More
