The food at this restaurant has deteriorated yearly to the point that, after many consecutive years, we have eaten our last holiday team lunch at this venue. There are two teriyaki dishes – chicken and salmon. They used to have a beef teriyaki dish but...that was removed from the menu. They used to have bento boxes on their menu for lunch, but those were removed. This year I ordered Salmon teriyaki for $25 and it was a tiny piece of overcooked salmon with 2 asparagus spears and a couple of potato wedges. The meal came with a sad little ice-berg lettuce salad and a bowl of miso soup that was the most ridiculously salty miso soup that I have ever tasted. I was hungry at the end of that meal. Of the 10 people at our table, 2 were happy with their food. Those aren’t good odds for a restaurant. The bill was astronomical for poor food and not enough of it. Shameful, Nami, you have become greedy at the expense of quality.More

This was a belated father's day meal from my daughter having flown to Toronto for a holiday. We went on a Tuesday night which was the Raptors first home game of the season which accounted for a fairly empty restaurant. However, that did not prevent...us from having an excellent meal, being guided by Kyutaro. We went for the Sushi Moriawase & Premium Sushi and could not have eaten fresher more flavoursome meals if we had tried, with plenty of variety on both plates. Both dishes were very well presented and would definitely recommend Nami.More

I have been going here for year! Its hands down the best bang for your buck! All the wait staff is dressed in traditional japanese kimono's. Their sake menu is quite extensive, and their sushi and sashimi quality is amazing. All the chefs are Japanese...and they even have a BBQ grill to grill fresh fish and vegetables right in front of you. Things to try, sushi pizza, sushi spring roll, grilled black cod, and their japanese uni is to die for!More

I was very pleased with my sushi dinner at Nami and will definitely go back. While it is true that the prices are a bit on the high side (eg, $5/oyster; $34 for 3 pieces of fatty tuna), you can be selective and still get...very high quality sushi for prices that are comparable to most places. If you're on a tight budget you shouldn't go here, but then again you shouldn't be eating sushi then. Nami is well appointed and you have a choice of either sitting at the sushi or Robata bar or a dinner table in a private room or the public area of the restaurant. But on the other hand if you want to try very rare sushi (eg, Uni from Hokkaido), this is the place. Only suggestion is that they can use a bit more training in the timing of dishes served. For example, I got my salad first (check), then I was served my sashimi (??), then the tofu appetizer (??), then my oyster appetizer (??), and finally the sushi.More

Ambiance is very casual, rather old school. Service is good. Food is SUPERB. Every single piece of sushi I had, including meat sushi, was melting in my mouth. Texture, freshness, taste were all at its peak. Loved it.

This place is the gold standard of sushi in TO. Fresh, Fresh, Fresh. The fish is soft as butter, creative and off the charts good. Sake choices are large. Love this place

We stopped in here while in Toronto. The food was delicious. We had the Sashimi, all tempura shrimp, sushi more, the chicken teriyaki, katsuo tatami. Portions were on the small side. Dessert selection was limited. Our meal came with ice cream and we had the...sesame and the green tea ice cream. Really think they should carry chocolate and vanilla too. The offer Sapporo and tap and this was served ice cold just the way I like it. I would recommend going here. Biggest draw back is the price. Our meal came out to $150.50 and the same meal in West Michigan would have cost half as much.More

I don’t know where to start. It was soooo disappointing to say the least. Basic sushi and basic sashimi for 10 times the price anywhere else. Don’t waste your time. SushiQ quality at harbor 60 prices.

Lunch time at Nami is very busy so if you don't have a reservation be sure to arrive early. The lunchtime Robata specials are a good deal - you get your choice of grilled fish (five options) and grilled meat plus a salad, miso soup...and rice for $27 (fish and meat) of $22 (fish only). Service is quick, the food very good and the setting comfortable.More
