OMG, I can't believe the 4 and 5 stars given to this place. Naomi is average at best - slow service, average sushi, and over-priced given the fare. I suppose this place is convenient for locals, given the dearth of good shushi in the Menlo Park area. But please don't insult Japanese natives by bringing them here. This place was great years ago when it was called Kiyoshi's and the owner Richard offered top quality sushi and service. But that era is long gone.
We've been to all the Menlo Park sushi restaurants and none are better than average including Naomi. The only standout Menlo Park sushi restaurant was Toshi's Sushiya, which closed three years ago. The owners of Toshi's opened Kaygetsu in Sharon Heights, which is one of the best (and most expensive) Japanese restaurants in the Bay Area (not a Sushi joint though).
Much better bets for sushi are Higuma in Redwood City (fantastic service, excellent sushi, fills up fast) or SushiYa in downtown Palo Alto. Don't take my word for it though. Check out Yelp if you're still not convinced.
While the service and value is not top notch, the food is very good. The food is a step up from Miyake's but a step down from Fuki Sushi or Blowfish. If it was cheaper I would consider making it my local sushi spot.
This place is not fancy nor charming, but when you are up to good sushi, it doesn't really matter. The sushis are excellent and affordable. I introduced this place to many many friends (some are more sushi addicts than I am) and they all loved it. Two thumbs up!
Pros: food and price
Cons: The atmosphere is not that fancy
Food is good. Price is reasonable. I don't like the service and the ambience. If you decide to go there make sure you order fried clamari.
I used to go there regularly, but recently I switched to Koma sushi.
since menlo park has 5 different places to get sushi within a mile of each other, standing out from the crowd takes some work. naomi does it for me. great fresh sushi - wide selection and reasonable prices. the service is a bit on the non-attentive side...but that it gives you more time to enjoy the people you are with :)
The food is awesome, my kids love eating there (2 and 1). The sushi is always tasty and well made. The sushi chefs are friendly and nice. HOWEVER, the rest of the wait staff is surly at best and not very adept at handling people.
