Solid little sushi place. Great service, really good food and very clean. A bit on the small side and a couple of the chairs were a little wobbly but I would definitely go back again.

I've been to Nara many times while in Va Beach. I have to say it is one of the best places for sushi. The cold pineapple sake is wonderful. The staff are friendly and very accommodating. You can't go wrong with any choices on the menu. It's truly outstanding.
