Who would think in Anderson on Lake Hartwell would be the best sushi I have had (and I have had a lot!)? It's true! We love this place. Great views. Great service. It's where we go when the family gathers. Of all the people we...have taken there to try sushi, only one did not like it. The other dozens have said "wow! I like that!' Get reservations. Their business is good!More

The evening was enjoyable and the food a good value. The sushi was good and the service good. If you are in the area I would suggest you stop.

...and other items for the non sushi eaters. Their tempura is scrumptious. Sushi is good and the roll is quite enough for dinner. My complaint is that the rolls are too fat. I would rather they bit a bit longer and skinnier. As it is,...it is hard to fit the sushi slice into your mouth. Many in our group were cutting them in half. ugh.More

This restaurant would be considered more fine dining for the quality and variety of sushi they offer. The types of meals, from small dishes to entrees and sushi options were extensive with tempting combinations and flavors. Most sushi is thought of as having different seafood...as the main ingredient, but here there were options which included meats that were very good. We also had fried sushi for the first time which was excellent. The only disappointment was with the restaurant's ambiance. It is at a marina on a small hill with the ability to have a panoramic view of beautiful Lake Hartwell, but doesn't take advantage of it in any way except for some outside seating. Inside there are only a few minor windows with no tables set up at them, and room dividers which hinders views for the patrons sitting at interior tables. The tables were white table cloth though. Service was very good with the servers very knowledgeable of the various menu items.More

I was looking for a good Japanese place to go to. I was very happy with the sushi I ordered and the Mahi Mahi was exquisite. Only thing was the entrees served with mash potatoes but you can switch to rice because fish and mash...potatoes don’t go together for me. Stop by if you can you can’t go wrong.More

Friends took us here for dinner and we were delighted! We had a number of appetizers and small plates among us... with each tasting better than the last. I'm looking forward to returning soon!

This was our first visit to Nami and were very surprised. We visit a number of Asian style restaurants in Atlanta and have to say we were very pleased. The service and food were all very good. The family favorite was the Pendleton roll. If...you’re in the Anderson, S.C. area you need to put Nami on the list of places to have dinner. We will be back!!More

My sister and I sat at the sushi bar, accommodated even though a large group was arriving soon. All of the 5 sushi chefs were very focused and busy with their creations. We had tiger rolls, a Pendleton roll, and a rainbow roll to go....Everything was fantastic!More

We now have choices for sushi in town but Nami is still the gold standard. We've been going since it opened years ago. Same superb quality and fun atmosphere. Can't go wrong.

We found the menu to be limited as sushi restaurants go. The prices were slightly high. The place was empty and the young employees were somewhat distant and uninterested in being friendly. I would look elsewhere to eat.
