“Best Japanese food in Mountain View”
Review of NAMI NAMI

NAMI NAMI
Ranked #65 of 360 Restaurants in Mountain View
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 December 2015

I lived in Mountain View for 7+ years so will finally write some reviews for our go to spots.

This is not a sushi restaurant. Although sushi is available (which is great), the menu has many types of different Japanese dishes. I have never been disappointed in any meal I have had here. If you are a sushi "connoisseur" who loves ordering Philadelphia rolls, keep walking past this place. Its not for you.

If you like sushi and sashimi, this is your place. However if you also want authentic Japanese (and teriyaki doesn't count), you will discover a whole new world to tantalize your palette. The sea weed is a must-have starter. After that, it is advisable to order different dishes (the portions are small). We had the prawn tempura, duck mango and mustard sauce, kimuchi hot pot and black cod. All the dishes were excellent albeit unusual. The only thing I didn't enjoy but my friend did was the dessert: the strawberry mochi cake is not really a cake but more like a strawberry parfait, very gritty.
If you like fine Japanese cuisine, then this is a great place and not very busy.

My husband and i went in this unassuming restaurant three years ago and has been hooked. The fish are fresh, the cooking is authentic. The ambiance is relaxed and the price is reasonable. My husband loves their grilled black bass with miso, i had the sashimi salad, equally good. The deep fried chicken and calamari are also very good. My regular order is the Kansai Don, raw fish over rice. In this rice bowl, i counted 2 pieces of salmon, tuna, hamachi, scallops, red snapper each and salmon roe and uni. Yummmm,,,
The service is cordial, lack of a little warmth but speedy. My tea cup was constantly filled.
This restaurant is a good place for a relaxed, quiet and good meal. It definitely worth your money.

We went on a Friday night the place is packed. We ordered the chef special sushi and the fish was wonderfully delicious and delightfully presented. The service is very good. It is one of the best restaurant for sushi.

This is a great place for business lunch or dinner for 2-4 people. Firstly, the tables are spread out comfortably, and the ambiance is rather calm and upscale. Next, they have a great menu of unique Kyoto style specialty dishes.

Food is delicious and lots of good sake selections. All add up to a fabulous, not your usual bustling Japanese restaurant, experience.
