Poor, slow service with only 2 tables in the restaurant at 5:30. Server forgot an appetizer we ordered. Never checked back for drink refills. Specialty rolls were cut so big you couldn't fit a single piece in your mouth. Discounts for happy hour were only $1-2 off. Overall very disappointing experience, we will try other sushi places in town next... More

The Naked Fish is a spot we always stop at on our trips to South Lake Tahoe. Our go-to appetizer is the Enoki Mushrooms but everything is great here so you can't go wrong. Our most recent trip we ordered the Chef's Sashimi selection which was amazing but what really blew us away was the Surf and Turf roll. We... More

Was treated very well at the sushi bar by Chip, our sushi chef. Sampled a lot of the restaurant's specialities including the Maui Wowy (good but overwrought), the horse mackerel with bone cracker (awesome), Korean barbecue albacore chunks (very good), hamachi ribs (awesome)and some good simple hamachi sashimi (simple perfection). Great price, great service, great fish. Wish there had been... More

Went with my family during a visit to Tahoe. So glad we came across this spot! We've had sushi from all over, and this goes down among some of the most creative and delicious. Plus the server was helpful and sweet.

Even though my husband and I read all the negative reviews we decided to try it out and make our own decision. We were pleasantly surprised. My husband and I both ordered two rolls each. He loved the Red Tiger roll so much that he ordered a second after we had already received our check. We also had the Rainbow,... More

Food is really good. Ordered three rolls, got two and finished them before the third arrived. Doesn't seem they have enough wait staff for the size of the place. Guy tending bar was also our waiter. Waited forever for bill and then twice as long for receipt. Will still go again because of the good sushi, but don't go expecting... More

This place is with out a doubt the best sushi in Tahoe. We have hit the other up here butt they don't compare. I highly recommend the BBQ albacore and the Maui Wowie! Both are to die for. We also enjoy Hot and Wild as well as the Tuna Sliders.

It is unimpressive from the outside, and a bit cramped inside. But what a surprising find. This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've experienced, and a great value! I wouldn't expect to find great sushi at a mountain lake resort, but here it is. The staff were excellent, and very patient with my large family. Be sure to... More
