“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Lunch times are "value menu" times in most good restaurants - and Nara is no exception. Great entrees for less than $10, along with a chance to take a good look at their current art exhibit and a venue generally quiet enough for a good chat. As a native mid-westerner, I can sometimes be sea food adverse so it is good to know that there are many other menu choices. I mean, I have even seen someone get a hamburger - and it looked good. Me, I like the build-your-own bento box. Good food and you feel as if you have done something healthy for yourself.

“Sushi is good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The squid salad is my favorite. My kids love their octopus rolls. Nara is not my favorite sushi in Kansas City; but it is consistently good. It's location in the Crossroads has been a good one.

“Trendy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I have eaten here several times. It is a very trendy and is a convienent place to eat before heading to Power and Light. The lettuce wraps are a great appetizer. On Friday nights after about 7pm they do body sushi which is very interesting

“Best Sushi in KC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went here on a saturday night a few weeks ago. We called ahead to see if there was a wait, and for two they fit us in. The waitress was very friendly. The food was amazing, the best sushi I have had in kansas city so far. We will be back again, although it was a little on the expensive side.
