An exquisite evening to celebrate our anniversary was supported by the delightful food of Nasime! The fixed price menu delights from beginning to end and is reflective of seasonal food. I loved the noodle soup with clams and duck. The broth was so flavorful. My...More

This restaurant is amazing!!! I has a minimalist menu. 5 courses. The food is prepared by the chef-owner on the spot. Friendly staff. Small and cozy.

This is the best restaurant that I've encountered in Alexandria. Truthfully, it may be the best restaurant that I've been to in the DC area, and I have been to several of the Michelin Star winners. The food is off-the-charts creative and delicious. Nasime runs...More

Three of us went there for dinner last weekend and what an absolutely sensational adventure! To start, we were served a Scallop, tuna tartare topped with ikura (salmon roe)... Exquisite! This was followed by a sashimi dish of tuna, salmon, sea bass, and mackerel topped...More

I was so looking forward to this as there are limited authentic Japanese restaurants in the area. We had a very unique 5-course menu (see photo). We had reserved the "private" room as we originally were supposed to have 6 people, but ended up with...More

My partner and I went to Nasime for dinner because we were in the area. Overall, it is very good Japanese food, but very expensive. The inside of this restaurant is very small, since there is only one chef making the food. We called on...More
