Came to Nama as it was a 10 min walk from my hotel. The service was quick and the food was average but tasty. I had the nigiri tako and saba, with a Craig roll. The roll was tasty but lose and not well constructed....More

I've been a few times, and enjoyed the meal each time; had Sushi and Sashimi. The wait staff is generally very good. I'd recommend this place if you're in the mood for sushi.
