Enjoyed the all you can eat sushi. Wish the place looked better outside. My wife finally convinced me that appearances can be deceiving. Some interesting roll options which I tried, but I prefer more basic raw fish offerings--left full!

My wife and I had the Teriyaki Chicken with rice plate with Vegetable Tempura and California Rolls and it was excellent. Large portions and perfectly done. The Tempura batter was crispy and not too heavy, the Teriyaki was seasoned nicely without being over bearing. The service was friendly and attentive. If we visit Carson City again we will definitely eat... More

Fabulous sushi - fresh, inventive and DELICIOUS!!! Family run restaurant that we cannot get enough of! Have had a lot of friends converted to sushi lovers, just by taking them to Nationals once - that's all it took!

Our usual place to go for sushi in Carson City. It is always fresh and well prepared. Not a lot of atmosphere but is clean. The staff are friendly. It would be nice if they offered a noodle dish for those that don't like rice or sushi. If you go try the fried ice cream, it is really good.

My college age son brought us to this 'sad on the outside' looking place. And its not fine dining. But the taste and quality of the food is amazing. These cooks have experience and the food reflects that. Only one restaurant in Carson City, Kei Sushi on Hwy 50 is better and 'prettier'.

Nationals has by far the best Sushi in the Carson City, Carson Valley and is better then any of the Sushi places we have eaten at in Reno or Tahoe. Mario has been making great sushi for years and it only gets better. Highly recommend if you are looking for sushi in Northern Nevada
