Okay, I have now tried Nama’s twice. It was even better the second time. It is in my Top 5 of Knoxville.
Nama on South Gay Street in Knoxville has very interesting fusion sushi. Based on my one visit, I highly recommend it.
The Lemon Grass on Lamar Alexander Parkway in Maryvilleclaims to have the best Sushiand best sushi in East Tennessee. It was very good when I last tried it. The Lemon Grass is a Thai restaurant and is very good. It was voted best tasting restaurant in Maryville. I always get their tilapia. their phone is 865-681-8785.
I have also enjoyed sushi at the Wasabi which has two location in Knoxville. On on Bearden Hill at 118 Major Reynolds place (865-584-4898) and 265 Lovell Road (865-574-0201) It is located directly across from the entrance to Turkey Creek in a very pretty oriental appearing bulding. They Sushi menu is quite extensive.

Although I do not eat sushi at all, I will pass along some ideas that appeared in a Sunday newspaper supplement this past weekend. The supplement is called Reader’s Choice; readers vote for the "best" in many different categories.
The winner of the "Best Sushi" category is a place called Sushi Nabe. It is located downtown on River Street (423-634-0171). The finalists were: Kanpai of Tokyo,located in the Hamilton Place mall area (423-855-8204); and Ichiban Japanese Steak House, with two locations (423-875-0404, 423-892-0404). As I was looking for phone #s, I discovered that there is another place downtown across from the Aquarium: Sekisui (423-267-4600).
Some(or all)of these places could be chains for all I know, but hopefully this will help a little. Maybe some of the "sushi afficianadoes" in Chattanooga can elaborate.
Prefer authentic to California roll type stuff.
Good sushi in Chattanooga or Knoxville?
