The sushi portions were very small considering the cost. I had the rainbow roll and there was more Maryland crab than any of the fish on top of the roll. The Maryland crab also overpowered the roll to the point that I only tasted the crab. My sushi came out separately (which is usually not an issue, kitchen looked busy) but I got my miso in between sushi orders.

Quality is poor for a sushi restaurant....with limited choice of rolls because most of them have similar ingredients/ composition. No wine list and extremely limited sake list. Completely overpriced.

The happy hour deal is great, but I wouldn’t pay full price for the food. It was just okay. I like that they have some creative vegan rolls though!

We had a very nice time here. It’s a very small, quaint restaurant with good level of music and low lighting. The food was wonderful and tasted very fresh! The service was also very good.

Food was great. Music was an odd mix for a sushi place - kind of an international mix between salsa, Italian, and old jazz. It was a little expensive - $5 for a soda and $20 for a roll seemed a bit much.

Over priced and food not that great. I am thinking it’s a spite sushi bar. Spend your money elsewhere.

The food was excellent and the service was good. We had a price fixe Valentine's Day menu, which offered a nice omikase selection. The space is small and low key. The music was slightly too loud, but Nama is definitely worth a try.

This place is great. The sushi is delish but the other dishes are even better.

Some of the best sushi in DC. I can’t believe I haven’t gone here sooner. Although a bit pricy, absolutely worth it for a special occasion (and happy hour is a good bet, too)

Fantastic happy hour and a great experience overall! Everything we ate tasted fresh and delicious: the bluefin tuna tartare was particularly yummy. Server was friendly, attentive, and really elevated our experience by making the perfect sake recommendation. We’ll be back for sure!

Chef Young makes dining at Nama a special experience every time. The food is incredible, not expensive and the service is top notch. I come here at least twice a week. Thank you for an amazing meal.
