I lived in Japan for years and am always so happy to eat at Nami Nami. It is a real Japanese restaurant. Unassuming, friendly, and authentic. Japanese expats in Silicon Valley often frequent Nami Nami to get a taste of home while they live in the area. Japanese visitors and locals alike all know Nami Nami as the best Japanese... More

This is a great Japanese restaurant. The menu is very different from the typical "American-Japanese" restaurant, lots of authentic Japanese dishes. Everything is delicious, service is impeccable.

Was here today for dinner to celebrate Father's Day. The menu was extensive with wide selection of seafood and some vegetarian too. Food was very light with good portion size, but brought authentic Japanese flavors on your plate. The avocado and dried plum rolls were melt in the mouth. Had a second serving of these Maki rolls. Seaweed salad was... More

This is my regular lunch place. I love their set lunch. They offer varieties of japanese food, ie. sushi, beef, noodle, pork chop... You name it, they have it. The service is pretty good as well. Dinner menu is more complete with some tapas. It is a great plane for family as well as for friends to hang out.

The first time we went we were unable to make a reservation by phone but got there early enough on a saturday evening to get one of the last available tables. The service was attentive but at a restaurant of that level I would welcome a hot towel. We ordered a variety of small dishes to share and everything was... More

I lived in Mountain View for 7+ years so will finally write some reviews for our go to spots. This is not a sushi restaurant. Although sushi is available (which is great), the menu has many types of different Japanese dishes. I have never been disappointed in any meal I have had here. If you are a sushi "connoisseur" who...

If you like sushi and sashimi, this is your place. However if you also want authentic Japanese (and teriyaki doesn't count), you will discover a whole new world to tantalize your palette. The sea weed is a must-have starter. After that, it is advisable to order different dishes (the portions are small). We had the prawn tempura, duck mango and... More

My husband and i went in this unassuming restaurant three years ago and has been hooked. The fish are fresh, the cooking is authentic. The ambiance is relaxed and the price is reasonable. My husband loves their grilled black bass with miso, i had the sashimi salad, equally good. The deep fried chicken and calamari are also very good. My... More

We went on a Friday night the place is packed. We ordered the chef special sushi and the fish was wonderfully delicious and delightfully presented. The service is very good. It is one of the best restaurant for sushi.

This is a great place for business lunch or dinner for 2-4 people. Firstly, the tables are spread out comfortably, and the ambiance is rather calm and upscale. Next, they have a great menu of unique Kyoto style specialty dishes. Food is delicious and lots of good sake selections. All add up to a fabulous, not your usual bustling Japanese... More
