Lovely freshly prepared Japanese food

An early dinner here with my (late teen) kids, and we all really enjoyed the food and service. Some unusual dishes like a spicy tempura crumb filling inside a salmon nigiri - delicious! The service was quick and we will be going back there!!!

I went to Sushi Nara with very high expectations based on the reviews. While the food is good, the donburi and noodles especially, the sushi is not great. Sushi Nara is slightly avobe average compared to other japanese restaurants in the area, and even in London in general, but if you expect real traditional japanese food, this is not the... More

This is a restaurant that i visit on a regular basis and it is mine and my friend's favourite place to have a catch up. The service is excellent and the food is served very quickly so there is not much time waiting around. I have never been disappointed by the food as it always tastes amazing and the staff... More

We tried this restaurant after recently being introduced to Sushi. We were not disappointed, there were some really unusual dishes to try. The staff were very helpful with recommending dishes and we really enjoyed the meal. The restaurant was quite busy considering it being mid week, however this just shows it's popularity! We enjoyed it so much that we decided... More

Would recommend for small groups of people or couples. Unusual atmosphere for a restaurant... quite cramped downstairs but that's OK because you are quickly ushered upstairs. The food is just amazing. A friend who lived in Japan for a year said this was the most authentic sushi place outside of London and I would do a special trip from Reading... More

We are huge fans of Sushi Nara! The food is incredible each and every time we visit (which is a LOT!). The team are so lovely and we get a warm welcome each time we visit. Everything we have tried from the menu has been delicious, and we love going along with new friends and for special occasions. Looking forward... More

Since stopping city living, I've been missing Sushi. Staines is about a 30 minute drive away from high up in the Chilterns. Whilst not an upmarket, swish or zen-like atmosphere … the food here really hits the mark. I couldn't fault anything. OK, apart from they don't seem to have an alcohol license. Sashimi was all exceedingly fresh (including the... More

Staines...sushi.....a surprising place to find a truly sensational eating experience! My wife, young daughter and I visit about twice a month since we discovered it online a year ago. The staff are fantastic. The Korean lady whom I guess is the manager is lovely. She works really hard to make everyone's visit as good as possible. There's also a Malaysian... More
