Difficult to find at night but a very nice meal. The ingredients tasted fresh. There were a fair amount of items on the menu from which to choose.

We were seated right away. They were semi busy. But then waited 10-15 minutes for menus, as we watched the waitress seat the people who showed up after us and get there drinks for them. We finally asked for menus and she apologized about forgetting us. I don't know how you could beings there are only like 10 tables in... More

For years I have driven by this place. My intuition told me to try it, but my eyes told me not to stop. Find ally my girlfriend chose that as a lunch spot. Driving up, the building is in an odd location and looks rundown. When you walk in, however, you feel like you have walked into a totally magical... More

I chose this place off a recommendation from a local but sadly it didn't pan out. I didn't get to experience the atmosphere, as I had takeout. The food was pretty good, but smaller serving sizes, and for what you get, the prices are a little high. Service wasn't very good either. When I called in to make my order,... More

We have been eating sushi at the NaRa for many years, and are never disappointed. Our particular favorite is the Timmy's Roll Spicy Tuna. Having eaten sushi in several cities around the US, we feel that the NaRa sushi is some of the best!

I personally love family owned, smaller businesses. The owner is a great guy that is more than willing to adjust rolls to the dietary needs of his customers.I started coming to NaRa at the suggestion of a friend, little did I know that I would become an addict. The size of the rolls are insane, at least twice the size... More
