Overall good, delicious food but a bit pricey for Costarican standards. The decor of the restaurant is very thought through. Great choice for a “fancier” night out!

Always predictably good food and service. Cold beer. Teriyaki chicken and sushi are great. Their rice and side veggies are wonderful too.

Weordered take out a soup and 2 rolls. The vegan roll was falling apart, and the flavor was awful, the soup had no broth and the fish roll had a strong smell.

the place looks nice located in the area of North Santa Teresa. Service is friendly but incompetent. Food is average and by far not worth what you have to pay for it. Miso soup is served in such a small cup the spoon hardly fits...in.More

Having tried both Nami & Satori Terrace in Santa Teresa due to their 5 star reviews, I can honestly say, I don't know how people can compare the two? Nami is in a different league to Satori. Satori's menu is average, the sushi portions were...tiny and the rice was hard ... the complete opposite of Nami where the menu had so many options I wanted to try, the size of the sushi served was plentiful and delicious and the rice was cooked to perfection. There is only one sushi spot in town for me, and it's Nami by a country mile.More

I ordered a Nami poke and one cold sake for delivery. I asked ‘not spicy’. When it arrived, there was no sake - the poke had no sauce and was mostly rice. Costed me 20 USD, really not worth it!!!

One of the best places in ST. I've been there many times and have always been very pleased. Always my first stop when I'm back in town.

Restaurant hours were posted to close at 10pm. We showed up at 830 and were told because of Covid restrictions the service hours was until 9p, understood. We were not able to be seated, but were allowed to place a take out order. The servers...were very unfriendly as if we were causing them an inconvenience. We placed a to go order and were told it would take 25 minutes Ti make the order. We were not allowed to sit while we waited which when we left would have been before 9pm, within the Covid restriction hours. It seemed they didn’t want to have to wipe down another table, again making it feel as if we were an inconvenience to their night. Inside of my two sons abs I could have a drink while we waited, they only would serve us water. Very unfriendly services. Felt as if we were not wanted. No pura vida. I suggest trying the other sushi joint in town.More

Delicious sushi, great service! Was not very crowded the night we ate in, but this sushi is the best in SantaTeresa. Tried Satori sushi down the road, funny smell outside and not as good. We had two rolls and 2 appetizers... it was plenty of...food for two people, probably too much food for us. Looking forward to eating again at Nami.More
