This sushi restaurant was sophisticated but reasonably priced. We enjoyed the expertise of the waiter, who recommended the "sexy mama roll" as the chef's specialty. It was delicious.

I am a former resident of San Francisco and San Diego, so the quality of sushi I’ve grown accustomed to is really hard to find in the Midwest. Nara has phenomenal sushi! The sashimi and the staff were both impeccable! I was completely blown away.

Great service and atmosphere. Excellent food. Salad and dressings are always fresh and flavorful. Grilled Salmon melted in my mouth! Partner had shrimp bowl. Awesome. Nice portions. Good small plates to share. Good beer, wine and drink menu. Always a pleasant experience.
