Nara is by far the best sushi in Billings if not the whole state. Young (the owner) is a pro. Sushi isn't something you can just read about a couple times and create. It is a skilled trade, something you study and train for, the same way you would with any technical degree. A fish is a fish but when carefully prepared with the right ingredients in the right way you can create beautifully delicious morsels of delight (which is what Nara has to offer).
This establishment has a loyal weekday lunch crowd, if your in a hurry, try the Cham Thai or Sweet Ginger. the staff is not the most friendly, I have been kicked out because my group was there 10min past their lunch hours (by the way they close from 3-5pm daily). I used to love eaiting there till they removed their lunch menu in replacement of 100% sushi, which is fine for some, as it's decent sushi, however it isnt good enough to deserve top, and solo billing.
Nara sushi is by far the best sushi in town. I have tried all of the other sushi restaurants and have found them all not up to par with Nara. Nara has a great atmosphere, excellent spicy tuna rolls, friendly wait staff, and the prices are more than fair. Anyone wanting to experience great sushi at a resonable price, I would highly making Nara your first choice!
