The drive from my hotel started to seem a little weird. But then I found the unassuming NAMI sushi place on the shores of a scenic lake. The menu had some creative choices and all was AMAZING! Best sushi I've had in a long time. And literally, at the end of a dead end road. Fresh, creative, and tasty. And... More

Visited Nami with family in the days after a family wedding. Food was superb, and atmosphere was relaxing and peaceful. Wonderful setting and really nice staff who seemed to want to make you feel comfortable and for you to enjoy your meal!

The Nami Asian Bistro is for connesours of Japanese food and for all others who do not care for sashimi. Having a variety of options, the most demanding tastes can be satisfied. Being in the nice settings of the lake Harwell marina (see the picture) you may choose outdoor or indoor sittings, and watch the sunset. And the food is... More

Took family from Scotland for visit while staying with us. Food and service was great. Went early evening and was seated in corner bar area with no view. Disappointing since restaurant clearly wasn't busy the entire time we were there. Enjoyed nonetheless.

I love sushi but my wife does not so she gets the steak. All of the food is great. Beautiful setting overlooking the lake too. Save room for desserts. You will be glad you did. You can also go by boat of your on the lake.

We have been settling for the Galley for 15 years because we don't eat sushi. Little did we know there are plenty of delicious alternatives on the menu. Now we go all of the time! They have amazing filets. You must ask for the off menu Filet with ponzu butter sauce. It is by far the best steak I have... More

We have dined at Nami many times in the past and have been quite happy with both the food and the service. Tonight was different. The restaurant was busy, as it often is on a Friday night. Quite understandably, the sushi bar was backed up in filling orders, and when it arrived, the food tasted very good. The service was... More

Nami is a nice little eatery on the lake that specializes in sushi but also has steaks of the quality that you might not expect from a sushi restaurant. You should definitely make reservations to avoid a long wait, as with any restaurant. The servers look like ninjas and do a great job as well.

I know this restaurant is known for sushi however I don't like sushi. We tried the scallop au gratin and it was delicious! I wished they offer this as a meal!! The appetizer is one of the best I have tried anywhere. However, the filet mignon was extremely tough and very difficult to even cut with a knife. My husband... More
