Family in Arizona suggested we vist Nakama for dinner, waited 20 minutes on a Friday evening, which isn't bad, and well worth the wait. The menu covers many types of Cusine in addition to the Sushi. The Sushi selection for a dessert location is second to none. Look forward to my next visit.

We have been coming to Nakama for the last 4 years and I have to say we have found the food to be consistently good and the service always pleasant and helpful. What it might lack in the 'wow' factor is more than compensated for in the quality of the food. We always appreciate the fact that I can eat... More

First time to Nakama...and the verdict is in ....will not be returning. The restaurant has a great location and has a nice layout....but we had a horrible table....because there was suppose to be a huge party arriving, that never appeared to show up for the 2 hrs we were there. The yakisoba was average....the chicken was dry...and the Viagra roll... More

I have been going to this place for a few years now, and I have to say every single time I go I get such great service and the food is always to die for! Most of the staff actually remembers me and thats a plus. So friendly and well priced.

Had great sushi here (Marilyn Mon roll and Seattle Roll). Great service as well! The fried Gyoza was really excellent as well… The Gyoza sauce was a little bit salty though.

For those in the area here is a spot with solid sushi, nice mix of rolls and reasonable prices. Decor is plain vanilla, service average. If you are in the mood for sushi go here.

We looked for some new places to eat - this place looked lovely. We arrived at the heart of dinner rush and were offered out door seating. It's a cool time of year so the owner got the heat lamps going for us. We had a lovely waitress who endured we got everything we asked for - and was served... More

ThebSingapore noodle dish is excellent. The noodles are very fine but do not be fooled as you will get full quickly. It is a little spicy and tasty. The environment is stylish and quiet.
