Great service, fresh and delicious food and nice ambiance. Only complaint is that it is on the pricey side but it’s worth. This is my second visit. I have been to another famous teppanyaki place in Bangkok but I still prefer Nami. Recommend to give it a try if you have extra cash to spend and prefer quality food.

The food is in average and nothing special. I think there are so many good restaurants and not necessary to go there.

The quality of the food just wasn't great. I have had Hibachi in Japan and America so comparing my experiences from there I would have to give this place a pass.

Well located but within the basement of the JW Marriott - fine for me but if people want a view then they may be disappointed as there are no windows. Service was excellent and our server even advised that we had ordered too much and we cut back on our order a bit. It was definitely the right call. The beef is quite expensive but you can get good value from the chicken and seafood. Remember if you are a Marriott elite member you can get a discount - I got a 15% discount with my gold card. You benefit from a private chef on small table teppanyaki tables, each seating around 4-5 people. Me and my dining partner got a table to ourselves as did the other customers in the room. Total cost was about USD40 per person and we were very full afterwards - recommended

Went here for our 30th anniversary and was pleasantly surprised with the extras that were provided. I think that our cook could have been a little more flamboyant at the grill, but her prepared our food as we liked. Overall an enjoyable experience.

FOOD:
The food prepared in full view got my appetite going. But unfortunately the prawns were overcooked and slightly dry and the salmon (if i was blindfolded) could have been sea-bass as there was no distinctive taste of salmon. Perhaps these were farmed locally. Suggest Head Chef look into supplier. The cook did his best but looked like he was tired of producing same old, same old. The enthusiasm from a few years back was lost and his endeavors were perfunctionary and un-engaging.

NOISE:
I competed with the piped-in music as the noise level was invading my conversation. Understand music enhances the ambience but I needed to strain to hear my friend talking.

HOSPITALITY:
Because my visiting friends and I had not seen each other in a long while. we overstayed the closing time and no one bothered us, this indicated to me good hospitality rules. For that I give my full marks.

We are long time residents of Bangkok and had a Tepanyaki dinner for 7 to celebrate our youngest son's 18th birthday at Nami JW Marriot. Appetizers included sushi and sashimi, some delicious cooked in a bag mussel, miso soup. Most had various steak, from Japan, one Hokaido scallops, one Boston lobster. As we shared a little, I can attest to all were delicious. Drinks were Saki from a wide price range, beer Asahi being draft, Saki Mojito my wife found interesting. The whole cooling schedule and preparation by the two Thai chefs is part of the experience. The food is fresh, top ingredients, and really delicious. The dinner is on the expensive side and worth it for special occasions.
Some of the credit cards get you a discount, SCB in this case. This is the best Tepanyaki in Bangkok with a deserved reputation for excellence.

Based on some of the other reviews, I had high hopes for this restaurant. Unfortunately, it was very disappointing. I like restaurants that have a clean modern décor. This was modern, but cold and very uninteresting...almost industrial. Our chef (calling him a chef is really being generous) never said a word to us. He seemed very inexperienced and ill at ease. And there were only 4 of us at the table so he shouldn't have been overwhelmed. Typically at a Japanese steakhouse like this, the chef is engaging. Not so here. At best the food was mediocre. My steak was overcooked. The vegetables were served long after we finished our steaks and we were never offered a dessert menu. We were served melon. The service was just awful. We had to ask repeatedly for water. This is not a restaurant that I would recommend.

Food is delicious. It is a little bit expensive, but it’s worth for this value. Staff is friendly and will provide useful information for choosing food. Chef is very nice and professional, he was taking care what a 3 years old kid’s needs.

I will plan to visit it again for my next Bangkok trip.

Atmosphere is fair. Food and Service is much under my expectation. Especially our chef, no presentation. For Teppanyaki, we expect some show and communicate with the chef. But nothing happen just normal stir fry and finish. The food is very VERY oily, the chef doesn’t know how to cook by put oil and oil over and over. Will not come back for that.

I reserved via this application around 1 hour in advance but the restaurant did not receive the appointment from application. However every staff took care my and my father very well. The taste is really good. The chef is polite and well balance between entertainment and cooking. It would be mire worthy if you hold Club Marriott Card. If not, the price is high (depend on the beef grade). For overall I am impressed and will definitely visit again.

Overall everything was AWESOME. The service was extremely good and the food was very well prepared.

The only part of the evening that was upsetting was the rude and unhelpful attitude from the front desk of the JW Marriott. After spending 150,000 baht in this wonderful restaurant the front desk refused to make change for us, because we weren't staying at the hotel. I showed them my restaurant receipt but that didn't matter.

They are not smart enough to make an intelligent exception to their beloved rules. No problem I'm posting this bad experience all over the internet. Eat at this restaurant, but don't stay or do business with the JW Marriott.

Good food in an interesting setting with all the theatrics that one expects from a teppanyaki dinner. I opted for their pork tenderloin menu. The ingredients were of a high quality and dishes freshly prepared. The service very friendly throughout. Overall a nice experience.

Good food, good ingredients come with a price. The food was good as expected. Service was okay, not bad but not excellent either. They could have paid a little more attention to customers while the chef cooked the food. There was problem with the accuracy of our orders.
