    bailed out of Groupon before it expired…cost me an hour of wasted time and gas. Probably reflected in how much care they leave out with their food prep. Restaurant gave lame excuse blaming Groupon. Common courtesy is to accept coupons that have not expired. Osaka , Carytown Sushi, and Akida to choose from. You lost a good customer for very little money. I order Sashimi probably about 70 dollars worth and you worry about a coupon that had not expired. Customer loses here..Please get more professional and you lost more than just me. PS I own a restaurant and never treat folks like this…

    Fresh & delicious! It doesn’t look like much from the outside but I definitely recommend going. We went for an early dinner (5pm) on a Wednesday & it wasn’t busy at all, but by the time we left people were starting to file in. Not sure about later in the evening. We got 3 specialty rolls and all 3 were amazing. The bar area of the restaurant is now the sushi bar… very cool.

    Went last night after an event. We live an hour away and we’re pretty hungry. This little place is really cute. I have read some of the reviews and I don’t know what they expect from a small family restaurant..white table cloths or something? But, we love these little out of the way places. It was getting late but the waitress was still bubbly and assisted my husband with a special request. My husband thought his filet and shrimp was really good and came with rice, soup and salad. We have been to Hibachi chain restaurants that charge exorbitant prices all so you can have a non-Asian chef perform the same stupid onion stack volcano and to have pieces of food thrown at you. No thanks. We don’t eat sushi, so I cannot comment on that, but I also had the tofu that had a smoky flavor with a thin tempura batter and a dipping sauce. My vegetables were fresh crunchy onions, broccoli, and zucchini. I found everything very tasty and will definitely hit this place again!

    I ordered this food on grubhub and omg was it good! It was nice and hot. Steak was tender and well seasoned. Chicken was delicious. Plenty of vegetables. Everything was absolutely great. Even that soup and I normally just throw that in the trash! I’m sure that if I were sick or needed a broth to drink, this would be it!

    I ordered takeout from Nami on my way back from the airport after a long trip. I got the hibachi chicken, and it was delicious! The chicken and fried rice are really top notch. Also, it’s one of those little details that makes you feel silly, but the to-go container was really high quality and I felt a little bit fancy.

    the flavor is good and the sushi is decently fresh. The portion is surprisingly small, and I’m someone who frequently has leftovers. I don’t always remember feeling like it was this small, so maybe it’s a new thing. Otherwise pretty good. I would rather it have been a couple dollars more expensive and satisfying than small portion size.

    We are from California and came to Virginia for a karate competition My son wanted sushi so we stopped in to check it out I didn’t want to get my hopes up about this place but I have to say the sushi was delicious The rice had a buttery taste to it that made it even more better I’ve never had sushi like that before.

    If your a Richmond native, then you’ll know this place is located in the old 3rd Street Diner spot. Sad that 3rd street is gone, but this is a great new addition to this location. We very much enjoyed the layout of the place. Lots of anime pictures and most Japanese versions. They had a number of TV’s playing anime shows and 1 was playing a miniature food cooking show. Staff was very friendly. Got to pick our own seat. Our waitress seemed a little forgetful, would ask us a question and then forget to get what she asked about, but she was super peppy and nice. We got a few specially rolls. Spider, Tokyo and Dragon. My daughter liked the Spider the beat, but all were good. It was her birthday, so they gave her a nice sized fried ice cream, on the house. Thanks! They have a decent sized bar area. We enjoyed it very much and would go again. Don’t know if it’s normal, but got a bunch of stickers with the bill, which was cool.

    I ordered a poke salad and was disappointed with the portion for $10.99. Flavor wise, it was on point, but I was expecting more fish nonetheless; I suggested they add lettuce since it was listed under salads. My husband ordered the chicken katsu don and that was a hit! I also ordered takoyaki for the first time and was pleased with the portion and price. Poke lovers beware—I suggest you get poke elsewhere; lots of other places to get more bang for your hard earned bucks!

    Definitively the best sushi in Richmond. Having tried 10+ other local spots, only one comes close to the quality you will get at Nami.

    The sushi chef has exquisite knife skills and perfectly blends craftsmanship and flavor with their fresh fish. The sushi at Nami is not just sushi, it’s an experience. It’s not cheap, but you get more than what you pay for. It’s a roller coaster of umami pleasure — a thrill with every bite.

    Want to introduce someone to sushi? Go to Nami. Want a transformative dining experience? Go to Nami. Want to taste the millimeter difference in how fish is precisely cut? Go to Nami.

    I have never ordered from their kitchen. Only the sushi bar. And that will never change because the sushi here is heavenly.

    One of the best sushi chefs amongst visits over 200+ sushi restaurants globally from $$ to $$$$$+$

    P.S. The plating is also gorgeous, but by the time I remember to take pictures, it’s usually all gone.

    Arrived at 8:15pm (they closed at 9:30 that night) and wanted to get something quick and hoped to be out before 9, as we had tickets to an event next door. There were two other tables with couples in the restaurant at the time, so they weren’t slammed busy. We figured we could get something relatively simple and quick; seaweed salad and a few simpler sushi rolls. It was 8:55 before we even got the seaweed salad, which is usually pre-made, and literally just gets plopped in a bowl. As we watched the time tick on, we debated whether to just leave or stick it out, and I wish we had left. The seaweed salad had a weird almost spicy taste to it that I’d never had before, and the sushi was incredibly mediocre, not to mention so loosely rolled that it was difficult to eat. We got our rolls finally at 9:05 and we were out by 9:15, which was unfortunately too late for us to make it to our plans literally next door. The prices weren’t exorbitant, but they were higher than most other casual sushi restaurants I’ve been to, and with the quality of the service combined with the really mediocre food, I certainly wouldn’t return and can’t recommend this restaurant.

    Service was very good but the sushi wasn’t anything special. Sashimi I got was oddly cut, and one piece had something fibrous that couldn’t be chewed. I haven’t been impressed with any sushi I’ve had in Richmond, but I expected something better here, especially for the price.

    Arguably the best sushi in town I’ve tried A LOT of sushi in RVA and this is one of the few solid places to get it and the hibachi is also very good. The service on the sushi rolls was a bit slow but otherwise the staff was friendly and attentive. All around a good experience I would recommend for anyone looking for this style of food.

    Walked to get late night sushi last night since their hours were listed they were open until 11:30 on in their website, google, and Apple Maps. We show up at 9pm to an abrasive staff telling us the kitchen is closed but we could still get sushi. We said that was fine and went to the bar. I also mentioned their listed hours and they claimed they didn’t know..? Employees start hovering around us, one with a baby in her arms specifically, who is telling us to do a to-go order. It was incredibly uncomfortable and overall weird vibe. We didn’t order anything and left. I’m an understanding person when it comes to the service industry but we were treated like pests by this place, completely unprofessional. Won’t be going back.

  44. A S 2023/03

    i just called and tried to place an order to -go and the girl who answered was extremely rude. before calling i attempted to order online but it wasn’t working right so i called and the girl told me i could order online and i told her it wasn’t working and then she said “oh bye” and i said am i able to place an order and she said “uh no you can call back bye” i was baffled and said what kind of service is that and she just hung up… i own restaurants so i know what it’s like to be busy and short staffed, especially, these days so your customer service skills have to be on 10 in order to still provide the customer with a pleasant experience even if there are longer wait times. all she had to say is that “apologies, but we’re not excepting take out orders right now. you can try again later if you’d like” and i would’ve simply said okay and went about my day but i’m so good off this place now. i was looking forward to trying them out but i’m completely turned off and will not be giving them my business.

    Oh where to begin.

    My wife and I went on a date there, it was dead the whole time. Normally that’s not a bad thing, but it was eerily quiet so conversation was a little awkward.

    The waitress comes back with drinks, we order the takoyaki because it’s cold out, and a hot appetizer sounds lovely. Then we wait. And wait. And wait.

    Eventually the waitress comes back and asks what we’d like to eat. I order the Spicy Kani roll (i would have gone with the chef special crab roll but I don’t like avocado) & the Spicy Salmon roll. My wife orders her roll with “a side of seaweed salad”.

    Notice at this point I haven’t said we received the takoyaki. We just kinda assumed the order was never placed and were happy to just not have it at this point, but more on that later.

    As soon as the waitress leaves with our order, she returns with just the seaweed salad. No rolls, just the seaweed. It was so quick there’s no way that salad isn’t pre-made ahead of time, and my wife was very clear that she wanted it with her sushi, but whatever. We laughed it off.

    Then the rolls came. My Kani roll, despite the menu not mentioning it, was half avocado. Meanwhile, the Spicy Salmon roll (which does list the roll as having “crunch”) was mostly crunch on the inside. It was like someone took tempura breading and blended it with the smallest amount of Salmon and aoli. I realize these are cheaper rolls than the chefs special, but for the same price I could have gone to whole foods and gotten something better out of their refrigerator. But fine. I’m determined to have a good night. I won’t let this bother me.

    What happened next is what made me leave this review.

    After both entrees, our appetizer arrived. The Takoyaki was visibly burnt, and the waitress apologized “for the wait”. OK, maybe they were still tasty, so I tried one.

    It was still so searingly hot on the inside when it reached our table that my eyes teared with pain. And even though it was burnt on the outside, it was still incredibly underdone in the middle. A soft, gooey dough like texture.

    I’ve realized since that the only way that could have happened is if the Chef realized he never cooked the order, cranked up the heat, dipped them in the fryer until they started to burn, assumed they were cooked, and immediately sent them out, resulting in a burnt but undercooked and painfully hot takoyaki. It was dangerous in many ways.

    If you want sushi, there’s so many great places in Richmond.
    Dont go here.

    Fairly new sushi/ Asian cuisine. This is the old 3rd street diner however the renovation has created a new atmosphere for this restaurant.

    Parking was easy and successful. Primarily street parking.

    Service was quick and efficient. I sat at the bar. The atmosphere is very quiet which is a plus for date night.

    I order (1) California roll & (1) Salmon roll. Both of the rolls had (6) pieces a each. This is where (1) star was decreased. The rolls lacked flavor. I did not receive the hmm hmm feeling.

    Overall, I will definitely return to try other menu items. Definitely a chill place for date night, and solo outings.

    I saw this sushi restaurant just recently opened in the area, so I was excited to give it a try. It was a lovely place! We ordered the Sashimi Regular and the Volcano Roll. The sashimi was some of the best I’ve had in Richmond, but the pieces were smaller than what you’d typically get from other restaurants. The tradeoff is worth it to me though. The fish was very fresh with a delicious flavor. The volcano roll was also very tasty, though I was expecting it to be more spicy and bold. It doesn’t lose any points though because I still really enjoyed it. The service was quick and our waitress was very sweet and polite. The ambiance was super relaxed and calm, I could have taken a nap in there. That may have been because there weren’t many people when we went. Overall, I really enjoyed the food and the experience. I would definitely return for the sashimi and to try their other specialty rolls!

    I have never eaten so delicious sushi before. It tastes like I ate in Japan before. I can’t wait to come again. If you miss sushi, it is surely a good choice. By the way, the environment of the restaurant is really nice. And the waitress is friendly.

    My daughter and I were very hungry and waiting for another bus to visit my home town of Philadelphia since our first one got canceled. We walked to the corner of the street and saw this place. They were so inviting and so friendly that they let us in after hrs. They told us that it was their first day open. Even though we did not make it Philadelphia that night due to the bus we booked, this place made our evening more positive and we had something to smile about. We look forward to going back for more Godzilla rolls, miso soup and spring rolls and even hot wings were delectable! Can’t wait to try more things on the menu, the customer service was exceptional! I will be going here as often as I can as I am a sushi lover!!!

    Food is great, atmosphere needs some sprucing up.

    I know they’re fighting an uphill battle trying to revitilize 3rd Street Diner, but the pics are a little misleading making it seem fresh and bright inside when really it’s a bit dark and musty. It’s on the verge of being a recommended spot, as the fish was fresh and tasty, but little things like the rice being skimped on, the avocado on one roll browning, ect.

    I have faith you guys will impress me next time, just needs some focused improvements.

    It was honestly average. When I went there I only seen one chief but he was working as fast as he could with other orders there. Ordered the yellow tail jalapeño was really fresh, well enjoyed. Love boat came out next was very good all fresh fish. Only one problem was the waiter, firstly she bought use out an extra plate of avocado salad, maybe a miscommunication. Lastly we ordered sashimi and it came out as nigiri. Overall the food was good everything was fresh and was fairly priced.

    So we went for my boyfriends birthday dinner and we were super excited to have a sushi place so close to our apartment. We’ve been following the status of this place since we saw the sign before it opened. Not too busy on a Wednesday night but there was definitely some good foot traffic through there.
    The food was perfect in my mind. Good, quality sushi rolls as well as crunchy tempura and gyoza and a pretty good ginger house salad. And not to mention there’s a lot of variety in terms of sushi rolls. Plus you can’t beat that price! The staff were all really friendly and attentive and our food never sat for too long. I can’t wait to go back because we will most definitely go and try their kitchen options next! Definitely give this place a try, it’s worth it!

VERY UNPROFESSIONAL ‼️

    Sushi was delicious!! We got the Flaming Dragon roll, the Alaska roll, the cucumber roll, the sweet potato roll, and the pork gyoza. Everything tasted extremely fresh seafood and vegetable wise and the sweet potato roll was top notch!! Very fast attentive service as well!! Will be coming back for certain!!

    Ordered the fried oysters. Tried to stomach one. I had my sister take a small bite, to make sure it wasn’t just me. It wasn’t. In addition, it was served with duck sauce.

    The oysters definitely not fresh. I told the waitress. When I received my bill, manager credited $2.59 out of $9.99. If I had eaten them, I would understand.

    Also, had egg rolls, they were ok. Served with soy sauce. I don’t get that.

    My sister got the Shrimp Tempura platter. She said tasted like frozen shrimp, nothing special. She did state the dumplings were good.

    Very disappointed, based on the reviews.

The gyoza and nigiri sampler were very good and came out in a timely manner. The specialty roles were okay. I probably wouldn’t order them again. All in all, it’s an okay sushi place.

    My husband loves sushi and we decided to try someplace new for Father’s Day and Nami did not disappoint!! Hot & crunchy takoyaki, fresh sushi with some different ingredients we’ve never thought to try before (like mango! Yum!!), excellent service!! Even our 5 year old loved it (but definitely only recommend for “adventurous” kids! This is a true sushi restaurant, don’t expect a kids menu!) We will definitely be back!

  116. Olivia Surface 2022/02

    This was our second time at Nami, we came when they first opened and like most super new restaurants— service was a little slow but food was good. This time around, everything was spectacular! Our waitress, Sabrina, was super friendly and suggested the Kami role, definitely our new favorite. We were in and out so fast and for 4 roles, 2 appetizers, and a drink the total was under $60. Can’t wait to come back!

I had a dragon roll, takoyaki, a beer and one other roll that I can’t remember and it was all delicious. If I had more room in my stomach and more money in my wallet (not that it was expensive, I’d say average cost for sushi if not less) I would have definitely gotten more!
