Valentine's Day dinner. I don't eat sushi often, but I'll go with my husband on an annual sushi meal. Server told us what he did and didn't like on the drink menu and dinner menu. Recommendations were spot on. I'll go back again, it was that good.

Good food. Interior space is nice and appropriate for the area. Great location just adjacent to the power and light district and parking was pretty easy. It was a little busy but it seems it was a "first Friday" and that's normal bit it wasn't crazy. For Sushi in the Midwest I am happy!

sushi is good, one of the best in town. Not the best wine list, but bottles priced very high compared to restaurants in the similar price range. Our waiter was horrible, had no idea about nenu

Best sushi in KC area! Fresh fresh ingredients from the vegetables to the tuna and eel. Prepared beautifully. New twists to old standards. Their Nara Roll is unique and great. The atmosphere is hip yet children were welcomed and unobtrusive. The bar looked great and the drinks were very good. Service was impeccable, especially Marcus. Will definitely go again.

Fresh ingredients, large servings and great prices are all good reasons to check out Nara...also, the limited time offering of the Kobe burger is the best burger I've ever had...tired of KC BBQ, give Nara a try...

Good service. Sushi is average. They have a pretty large selection. Our party of 10 ordered about 15 different kinds of sushi and everyone agreed that it was just ok. A friend ordered the alligator and said it was chewy and not very good. Everyone agreed the best was the jalapeño sushi. I did not like the vegetable roll. It... More

Wonderful variety of Sushi and the sides are perfect complement. The Bartender(s) are a talented group also. The location is in a fun part of KC, close to Sprint Center and the Crossroads District.

Visited about 7p on Friday evening and were able to be seated immediately with four in our party. The ambience of Nara is trendy and modern. Very neat environment! My husband ordered an entree - the three meat combo and said it was very good and hearty. Our friends and I split 6 different sushi rolls and all were yummy!... More
