A person favorite. Fun staff when I go in, fast service when I order out. Inexpensive, but good. I eat the curries a lot.


Edible, but barely.

Editorial review from GrubHub 4/5/2014

Good food but small portions for high prices. Didn't follow directions on food preferences. more

Great food, Too Loud and Poor Service 9/28/2010

I think the title says it all, and other reviews confirm my experience. I went with a friend to Nana's based upon a recommendation that the food was good. The food was delicious and portions were perfect; not too small yet not too large.\r However, it was difficult to have a conversation over the music- way too loud. And, the service was horrendous. Aside from being terribly slow, when we finished our beers, the waiter removed it from the table and didn't ask if we wanted another. In fact, we weren't even offered water. This would be no big deal if the waiter checked in every so often to ask how everything was- but that was far from the case, and it wasn't easy to get the waiter's attention because he wasn't around. Also- we ordered 2 rolls and had asked the waiter which was which. Turned out, 1 was one we hadn't ordered. THAT is when the waiter informed us they were out of the lobster roll- so they took it upon themselves to replace it with an Alaskan roll!!!! What if one of us had food allergies!? If I lived in the area, I would order delivery, but neither myself or my friend will go back again more

Would be so much better if the Bartender had a memory 10/7/2009

I went to Nana's and sat at the bar to enjoy the $3.00 bar menu. The food was good; however the Bartender kept forgetting what we ordered. She would place our food down and then a while later come back and say ""Oh who brought you that food"". We ordered Scallion Pancakes which I believe she forgot we ordered them. We asked four different times and 45 mins later they finally came, she said they were on the house which was nice but then we realized how burnt they were. The cocktail for the nigt were Mai Tais. I ordered one and it was not good. Not sure if it was the drink or the bartender making it. I may go back but if I see her at the bar I would definitely just sit at a table regardless of the specials. Pros: Cheap Food Cons: Bartender with Amnesia, Mai Tai more

So-so food, surprisingly noisy 2/14/2009

Food is passable, but nothing special. Remember that ""best sushi in Park Slope"" is like saying ""best burger in Mumbai"" -- what's the competition, and around at who's eating there?! While that's no surprise, what is surprising is how loud their dinner DJ plays his Hotel Costes CD. So loud that we couldn't hear each other over the table and gave up on talking. When we complained, they turned it down... until our food came. Having locked us in, they cranked it right back up again. Frankly, Hotel Costes sounds better in my apt. more

Good food, BAD Service 11/1/2008

The food has always been great. There is a wide variety of options, which is nice if you aren't sure what exactly you are in the mood to eat. But the service is pretty bad. I've been there a number of times, and 4 out of 5 times the service is incredibly slow. Our waitstaff would disappear, there were limited to no water refills and once I saw my food waiting for pickup from the kitchen and the waitstaff weren't paying any attention. It is too bad, because the food is too good to get cold. Pros: Food is reasonably priced and tasty Cons: BAD SERVICE! more

Worth the trip! 7/7/2008

I've been to more than my share of sushi joints and I must say that I was not disappointed with this one. Our waitress was extremely friendly, the food was delicious, the ambiance was very nice, and the manager was very personable. We ate til our stomachs almost burst and drank enough sake until our bladders almost popped all for a very reasonable price. Pros: food, service Cons: music too loud more

Something Different, Just What You're Looking For 4/12/2008

Great place to take friends... Plenty of space indoors, along with an intimate bar. Live DJ creates the perfect ambiance while you dine in a pleasent garden. Menu offers creative dishes fusing Thai, Malaysian, Japanese, Vietnamese and even Mexican cuisine. \r The drink menu offers a taste of beers from around the world along with a satisfactory selection of saki and appetizing special drinks. Incredible service. \r Every person from bartender to host to each server that is working that evening is friendly, always with a smile on their face and ready to help you with whatever it is your heart may desire. \r There are plenty of opportunities to find a parking spot on the many neighborhood streets nearby. The worse that can happen is you snag a spot a few streets away and you have a nice walk in an exciting neighborhood. Pros: Ambience, Selection, Creative Cons: Because their is an offering of so many different cuisines, this is not the place to go for the best quality of one particular cuisine more

Yuppie diaper change 7/1/2007

Yuppie mom changed her burgeoning Rhodes Scholar?s diaper (or her Rhodes Scholar?s burgeoning diaper) in the public back yard of this place not 10 feet from the table where we were having our drinks, while her 2 other toddlers frolicked and screamed in the fountain. Needless to say, we will not be returning any time soon. more

cheap, fast, open late, will deliver anywhere 10/26/2006

NANA serves asian junk food and not-so-fresh sushi. \r many of their appetizers are pre-cooked frozen food(i saw frozen wonton, edamame, empty boxes of mini spring rolls and etc behind the kitchen)\r the food is not bad, but the taste is not consistent.\r everytime i go there i order the same thing, but it tastes so different each time.\r they don't take credit cards, but they state that on the front door and on the menu in tiny letters.\r when i was eating dinner there one night, i saw some guy yelling at a waitress because he only had credit cards. \r there are quite a few restaurants in nyc that don't take credit cards, \r and there're many many ATM machines on the streets... i don't think it's a big deal, is it?\r music is annoying. if that's for covering up the noise from the open kitchen and kids, they're just making it worse.\r service is not bad. they move pretty fast carrying such heavy dishes.\r i also noticed many workers are very friendly with kids.\r \r NANA is a perfect place for families with young children(no babies!). the music will wake them up.\r if you go early, it's quiet and nice.\r their lunch is also super cheap and not bad at all for the price.\r Pros: price and service Cons: no parking space, not so close to subway more

Beware -cash only 7/4/2006

Had dinner here last weekend. We were presented with the bill and as I pulled out my credit card a waitress passing by remarked, ""Cash Only."" This has to be one of the only places not to accept credit cards in the Slope. Even worse, this was not posted ANYWHERE - not on the door, not on the menu, nowhere. A perfectly nice dinner was ruined because I had to go sprinting down 5th Ave. in search of an ATM (the one the waitress told me to go to was out of order). The only reason I can think of for a restaurant to be cash only is that some under the table accounting is going on. Skip this - there are equally good places for sushi around Brooklyn, with nicer gardens and no annoying techno DJs. more

One of our favorites 5/13/2006

We eat at Nana very frequently and are never disappointed. Pros: reasonably priced, not usually crowded, awesome food Cons: none, none, none more

Overrated 3/11/2006

The food was good, very good in fact. We were seated quickly and didn't wait long for the food. But this place is sooooo noisy! They play loud techno music, more suitable to a club than a restaurant. When we mentioned the noise level to the waitress, she turned into John Belushi-like Samarai Waitress, and said, ""its ambiance, the owner likes it that way, look we even have a DJ."" She was clearly offended and suggested we were uncool. Maybe I am getting old; but I don't think sushi needs loud techno music, or a condescending waitress. Pros: good food, fast service Cons: noisy, not friendly staff more

Good Times 9/3/2005

Enjoyed it. Sushi was good beef entree as well. Try the volcano roll. Wait staff was good too. We got hammered off saki and had a blast. Pros: staff, food more

worth the trip 6/12/2005

the food here was very good. definitely worth the trip from nyc or queens.soft shell crab is done just right. nothing is too heavy or overpowering. can't go wrong with any of the main dishes. appetizers are hit and miss. service is great, great space, and prices can't be beat. Pros: great value, service Cons: cash only more

epicurean delight 9/1/2003

dishes are creatively spiced and beautifully presented. portions are generous. i've been twice and have tried different dishes each time. duck and soft shell crab are must haves. will leave your palette craving more! more

I'll be back! 4/15/2003

Nana, one of Brooklyn's newest 5th Ave (it's said that 5th Ave is the new Smith St) is very promising. This Asian fusion restaurant has a tantalizingly inventive menu; one can make a meal of small dishes or order entrees. The beef salad had a lovely dressing, but the generous portion of beef was slightly overcooked. I did not like the tuna sashimi, the very sweet sauce completely drowned the delicate flavor of the fish. The yellow tail sashimi was delicious, served in endive leaves with a tangy (horseradish?) sauce. The dragoon roll was just great, here slivers of mango are added to this common eel and avocado maki. The space is large and comfortable with a cool electronic soundtrack, yet great acoustics for a conversation. (The fish in the dark basement bathroom made me sad.) Nana-not perfect, but worth another try. Pros: inventive food, great space, Garden Cons: over-inventive food more

Welcome addition! 3/19/2003

Its got a funky/mod decor with not-too-loud techno music. Very good service. Had nice spicy shrimp soup, sushi & bunch of tasty appetizers. Only weak spot was timing - sushi was made a bit before served - rice got cold and tempura soft. Other than that its a welcome addition to the Park Slope restaurant row! Pros: eclectic Asian menu, moderate price, good service more

Excellent! 1/20/2003

A truly excellent addition to the growing restaurant scene on 5th Avenue. Exceptional food at prices that are very reasonable. Looking forward to becoming a regular. more
