Beautifully prepared, fresh, large servings of carefully presented Japanese food. The dragon rolls are fresh and large. Restaurant is fairly large and tables are well spaced. Service is friendly and attentive.

Ordered take-out and the amount of sashimi in 1 piece is nearly 1/2 a butter fish! Amazingly fresh and delicious too!

It’s getting harder and harder to find great service in Halifax. But our last visit to Sushi Nami Royal proved otherwise. Lory was a highly professional, outgoing and friendly server who was not too pushy or incessant, she was able to advice on the menu...and make it easy for me (me - being far from an Asian food expert). We, also, were celebrating a birthday and again Lory was great at surprising us with a great ice cream treat. I really hope the restaurant management appreciates employees like her, jut like customers do. Thanks a lot, can’t wait to be back.More

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese food place, then Sushi Nami Royale is the place to be. At the entrance of the restaurant, the waiter at the reception warmly welcomed us. Trendy minimalist concrete interior design sets things up. The place is comfy,...nice and with a modern look. Spacious enough and with good arrangement to accommodate large groups. They have a large menu selection ranging from sushi, teriyaki, noodles and vegetarian options. The food is excellent starting from the fascinating array of appetizers such as dumplings, main course meals to desserts. The Wasabi crispy Shrimp is the perfect appetizer. The crust was flavourful, chewy and with the right crisp. I had the salmon tatami while my friend had spicy Tuna roll as the main meal. Tatami is a perfect definition of Japanese fusion art. The presentation, the flavours and the consistency lived up to my expectations of a tatami. The tuna was one of the freshest blue fin tuna. Although the tuna was a little cold. Very attentive server willingly warmed the tuna. Fairly big portions which are filling and with decent prices ranging from $17 for a plate. The green tea ice cream as the dessert was a perfect finish for our lunch. However, the restaurant does not take reservations thus it is hard to make plans to visit the restaurant if you are not physically available. There are several Japanese restaurants around Halifax; however, if you want to an authentic Japanese experience then Sushi Nami Royale is the place. True artisanship, true quality and affordable price range. Great value for your money. Try it. You will not be disappointed!More

I tried all sushi bars and restaurants in Halifax and definitely can say Sushi Nami are the best in any place, not exactly on Queen st. High quality, tasty, fresh. Great service and very careful cook. My daughter has allergies for shrimps and soy, so...every time cooks make special order for her. Thank you very much.More

Centrally located. Parking is on the street which can be a pain if there is construction. The food was very good - splendid vegetable rolls - much more creative than most. High quality fish. The ramen was good as well. Overall a great meal. The...only complaint is that the restaurant is full of hard surfaces so it gets very loud. (Most of the seating is wooden tables and wood benches...). If that is not a bother, highly recommend.More

We have been to the Bayer's Lake location for a wonderful Sushi Nami Royale lunch. Truly excellent sushi quality and great service - at a very decent price.

This was my first visit to Sushi Nami Royale. It was stylish and the food was great. I had the Vegetable Dragon Roll which was delicious! It was reasonably priced and the portion size was good. Service was polite and efficient. Would definitely return.

This is a very good place to get really good Japanese food at a reasonable price. The tempura, gyoza and sushi were all highlights.

I always order salmon sashimi from the clayton park location because the portion size is always bigger than the other locations and I find it always fresh. I ordered 3 orders last night that may have turned me off of sashimi for good, they cut...it from the tail. It was chewy and disgusting. I'm not sure if I have it in me to go back. Cutting sashimi from the tail of the salmon is just being cheap, they didn't even remove the bloodline. I'm getting grossed out just thinking about it.More
