Normally the sushi is extra wonderful but twice I've been there and the shrimp was not cleaned, so here I am ordered 3 rolls all I could see was shrimp turd staring me in the face an at that point I decided as much as I love the taste of nationals I will be now joining the bandwagon for Kim...

Our usual place to go for sushi in Carson City. It is always fresh and well prepared. Not a lot of atmosphere but is clean. The staff are friendly. It would be nice if they offered a noodle dish for those that don't like rice or sushi. If you go try the fried ice cream, it is really good.

My college age son brought us to this 'sad on the outside' looking place. And its not fine dining. But the taste and quality of the food is amazing. These cooks have experience and the food reflects that. Only one restaurant in Carson City, Kei Sushi on Hwy 50 is better and 'prettier'.

Nationals has by far the best Sushi in the Carson City, Carson Valley and is better then any of the Sushi places we have eaten at in Reno or Tahoe. Mario has been making great sushi for years and it only gets better. Highly recommend if you are looking for sushi in Northern Nevada
