I have been here twice both times on a Thursday night. The sushi is excellent. Both times I ordered the Samurai Roll. I swear I could eat this several times a week. The little plate items are just that small but really tasty. Their menu is online and includes the prices. They also have steaks and fish. I would eat... More

Sister and I had edamame, tiger roll and heaven roll and we were not disappointed with the service or food. Excellent!

This is definitely my favorite place to get Sushi, not just in Anderson but other places I have been to. I always get the Samurai roll. There is a great selection of cooked and raw Sushi. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

I write a lot of these reviews. I am more excited about this one than any I have ever written. The food here is absolutely outstanding. We tried a number of items and everything was delicious. One word of caution before I continue: We went on a Saturday evening. If you go on the weekend, you likely need a reservation.... More

My husband and I went to Nami's for our Valentine Dinner. It was fabulous! We were seated by the window so that we could see the view of Lake Hartwell. We had delicious appetizers, sushi rolls, and tempura. The sushi chef's presentation of the Dragon Roll was the best ever! I eat a lot of sushi rolls, even in Japan.... More

The sushi rolls were delicious and fresh as always. I didn't like the lettuce in the spider roll, but the other rolls were great. Some of the entrees were a little underseasoned. Our server was courteous and helpful. We don't get out to Nami often, but we always have a wonderful experience.

If you like seafood, sushi & tempura, this is the best restaurant in Anderson. Beef entrees ss well. Food & service is consistently excellent. On Hartwell Lake with outdoor dining when warm.

When several people (you don't know) tell you a restaurant is good, you have to try it. My husband and I are not big sushi fans but took some friends visiting to check it out. Not only was it fun but it was delicious! There is something on the menu for everyone. You don't have to be a sushi fan... More

Went during first week of December and had an excellent meal! We were with two other couples and the service was outstanding. The sushi was amazing; very fresh and tastefully assembled. Great presentation as well. All six of us said the same thing..."best sushi we've had in SC"! One of the couples was new to the area (coming from Anchorage)... More

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
