Good food, a little pricey

Good Japanese food. Service can be slow. Prices are steep and portions are small. Dark inside. Still good food. Next to a Bingo Hall, so don't go on Friday or Saturday nights.

The shrimp was great. Steak lacked flavor. Scallops were so thick that they did not cook well. Soup/broth was surprisingly ok. Presentation and cooking seemed rushed. He did not do all of the "performances" that I have seen at other places. Great place to try once but it is expensive ($20 and up).

Heading there next for lunch week with my girlfriends for some very good Oriental food. We love sitting around the grills and watching them cook our food. There is always plenty and the cooks are entertaining. You can either order off the menu or watch them grill your food. Either way its all very good and if you like sushi... More

My baseline is dedicated sushi/sashimi restaurants in Corpus Christi, not exactly an Asian hotspot as far as Texas goes... Nami is dark, with no apparent traditional sushi bar. Perhaps it was the lighting... Sashimi was good, with raw fish devoid of underlying rice, in contrast to what may be a more widespread approach to presentation seen in Texas. But good!... More

This place is a decent place to go for lunch, but not worth the price and certainly not good service. We go there for a business meeting monthly, and we have decided that, as a group, it is not worth us going there anymore

We had a group of 10 people and no one said anything detrimental about their food or service. I had the steak and shrimp which was a little overcooked but still good. I will eat here again but it is not my favorite place to eat.

Our family always loves dining at Nami! The service is excellent, and the food is outstanding. Tip: Nami in Belton is soooo much better than the Nami in Temple!

I had "Longhorn Roll" the first time I visited the restaurant. It was different and tasty. The atmosphere is not very relaxing as Hibachi tables are very close to the regular tables and making lots of noise during cooking. Plus do not go there with totally clean clothes and newly bathed! You will end up smelling like a steak when... More

Ate here with 3 others on a Saturday night, reservations at one of the hibachi tables. The restaurant is large, with around 6 hibachi tables, a long bar, and open seating in between. It was smoky in the restaurant, and our clothes smelled like grease when we left. Ordered sushi as appetizer, didn't arrive until after the soup and salad.... More
