Nami Sushi is an All-You-Can-Eat sushi restaurant located in East Davis. It's a made to order style where you order rolls and nigiri. If you've ever been to Raku sushi in West Sacramento, the menu selections is rather similar. Nami sushi offers your standard variety of nigiri. They also include some hot appetizers like miso soup, gyoza, fried mussels, etc. Their dessert selection includes donuts, sesame balls, and fried bananas. Nami Sushi takes over the old place of Nobu Hiro.
Surprisingly, Nami Sushi has 3-4 rolls of sushi for vegetarians which are filled with ingredients like seaweed salad, so vegetarians can enjoy a little sushi too.
They do split checks.
2014-09-03 17:47:54 In addition to the description, personal experience warns that sitting at a bar and telling the sushi chef order directly will sometimes result in orders being forgotten, because they don't write the order down. Service is also a little slow despite the restaurant not being fully packed, so I would be a little wary if the situation ever occurs. Sushi chef was pretty friendly, and the waitress did make sure out waters were filled. A lot of the rolls are just variations of each other with a few ingredients changed here and there so they tend to taste the same after eating a few. Check it out anyways, it's AYCE sushi. —DanTran
2014-10-23 10:11:58 Best AYCE sushi restaurant in town, IMO. Nami Sushi is great because all rolls are made to order and the plating of the dishes is always flawless. For an AYCE restaurant, the sushi fish to rice ratio is pretty good. The only drawback is that they do not serve sashimi, but you can order nigiri to your heart's content. I highly recommend their Spicy Scallop roll!
For those who are looking for something lighter or don't like sushi, they do have a separate menu with bento boxes. Sushi chefs and waitresses are all very friendly, and I have never had issues with forgotten orders (but I tend to go during non-peak hours). They have several sushi chefs and my personal favorite is the larger, taller gentleman with glasses. I have been several times since they've opened, and I suggest sitting at the bar for ease of ordering. If you're looking for an AYCE sushi restaurant, I highly recommend Nami Sushi! —MargaretWong

2017-02-07 17:03:44 Jusco has always been my go-to sushi place, but it often is impossible to find parking nearby (I use a cane). I was perusing restaurants, preferably outside the core, and happened to find a new place. I had not realized there was a replacement to Nobu, and Nami had actually been there for over two years! So, really wanting sushi, and not wanting to deal with the core, I headed for Nami. And was duly impressed. Everything tasted fresh, was delivered quickly, staff was mindful. Great array of selection, AYCE and then some... No sashimi, but as someone else noted, the fish to rice ratio is pretty good. They even have fried oyster appetizers, and a Deep-fried Davis Roll (with jalapeno)! If I'm downtown, and craving sushi, I'll still head for Jusco, but if there's no parking, I now know I can just head for Nami's and be just as pleased! —barbararuhmann
