It's ironic to be so far inland and be able to sit down and have my tastebuds transported seaside. Nara is, hands down, the freshest and highest quality sushi I have ever eaten. Aside from the fact that the rolls are abundant and crafted masterfully, the chef was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Their menu is so full of tempting combinations... More

They only thing wrong with this place is that it is where I had sushi for the very first time...and it's ruined me to eat it any where else! We travel a lot, and nothing ever compares. We find ourselves rushing to Nara as soon as we step foot in town!! This is a family owned restaurant with custom made... More

My mother in law, a friend and I went on the recommendation of a written review. We were seated right away and they got our drink order in. We ordered the gyoza as an appetizer, it came out greasy and definitely not fried. It was made with ground beef and very little vegetables, it tasted like a meatball with wet... More

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 like sushi and I travel a lot. So I've had my share of sushi both in my home town of Billings and dozens of other cities around the world. NaRa is hands down the best in Billings and among the best I've ever had. If you like the Spicy Tuna like I do, make sure you ask Dae for... 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
