The staff is very friendly. They check back to make sure everything is ok, they work as a team. The cooks did an excellent job with preparing the meals in front of you with alil humor..no long waits and the food is delicious ... I would recommend Nakato for any occasion.

SO MUCH BETTER than Benihana!
Our first time here since it opened 41 years ago! Had a nice time here with the family. We tried the hibachi side; do not know what the other side is like, although it did seen pricey on the other side. (It is like they have two restaurants in the same building.) This place is SO MUCH BETTER than Benihana, I hesitate to mention both places in the same sentence!

Interestingly, I called the
Interestingly, I called the restaurant directly earlier in the day for a reservation for 4 at 7p and was told they had walk ups only. Then, while I was on the phone with the restaurant getting shot down, I went on line to Open Table and got a reservation for 4 at 7p in a matter of seconds. We showed up at 7p and sat right away because of the Open Table reservation. The restaurant came this close to losing a $200 tab. Other then that, this is not my first time thru. It's my kids favorite place to go. Also my fav Hibachi in ATL. Entree prices are as reasonable as you want them to be. No pressure to buy up. Plenty good food, plenty of attention and the show is fun. Does not seem to get old for the kids.

Nakato's a Keeper
While I recommend highly, I still compare to Mt. Fuji that was located in Marietta GA. (but no longer in business) I rated Mt. Fuji a 10+ and Nakato an 8. I will return to Nakato. The staff was excellent and the barkeep John was highly knowledgeable in his craft, engageable and personable.

I LOOOVE THIS PLACE, ONLY
I LOOOVE THIS PLACE, ONLY WISH ONCE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS YOU GET SEATED ONCE YOU WALK THRU THE DOOR. I HAD TO WAIT 25 MIN AFTER MY RESERVATIONS TO BE SEATED. BUT I LOVE MY WAITER AND THE COOK THE MOST. WHAT I REALLY LOVE IS HOW MUCH THEY PAY ATTENTION TO DETAILS SUCH AS REFILLS AND WHEN YOUR DONE WITH THE FOOD.

Hibachi & Sushi
Fantastic food- the best Hibachi in Atlanta! Portions are extremely generous and the staff was pretty much on top of table service. We sat with lots of friendly people and had a good conversation while watching our chef put on a great show.
The sushi is GREAT as well.

Fun for a group
Took my daughter and 5 of her friends there for her 11 Birthday Party. Was a great experience - everyone had a very good time. Enjoyed the food and especially the service - very good chef. I would recommend highly recommend for a group. I would even recommend for couples or an adult group - would just book this later in the evening.

Second time around!
This was second time at the restaurant and it was everything that I remembered.

A little pricey and oily, but the food was simply amazing. Presentation at the table was excellent!
We got a private room so it was quiet.

Fun & Entertainment Place to Eat
I took the family to Nakato because its my son's, who is 8 years old, favorite place. I really enjoys the Hibachi Chef's on how they cook and entertain while cooking. Plus there was a lot of birthday's there too and it was fun to watch the staff sing & celebrate someone's birthday. So it's a great place for family and birthday entertainment.

My husband and I visited Nakato (the hibachi grill) for our first anniversary this past weekend. The food was amazing (I could have their soup every day!). The show was not the most impressive (most likely because our table was filled with adults), but the food was excellent. The portion sizes were large, and the meats were cooked to taste. My husband got steak and scallops, I typically hate scallops for their "fishy" smell, and tendency to be over cooked, but I ended up trading him one of my shrimp for one of his scallops. Overall, it was a top notch dining experience.

We have been looking for a great hibachi restaurant and found one in Nakato. The food was hot, tasty. The chef did not do as much of the cooking show as other tables I think he got the sense that we wanted to talk versus be entertained - that is a good thing. If there were young children at our table I'm sure he would have raised the chopping entertainment level up a couple of clicks.

Entertaining and Delicious
The food and service was excellent. Loved the hibachi entertainment!

I've been to several Hibachi Grill's and this one has to be one of my favorites already. Our chef was good, but not high on interaction. You could tell he had a long day and was ready to go home. Food was excellent and the prices were great. I went on a Saturday and it was busy, but not too bad that you couldn't get a seat without a reservation. I will definitely be returning to Nakato.

yummy yummy yummy
The food and service is always great here. Make a reservation as they get busy on weekends

My entire experience was amazing! It's by far the best hibachi I've had in ages! We were running late for our reservation, but they were very accommodating! The staff was fun and friendly and the owner was on top of everything! I had the filet and chicken and it was prepared to perfection! Their ginger dressing is wonderful, too! I can't wait to go again and try the sushi!!!

The Hibachi Grill did an outstanding job with the food. It was a lot of food, but it was delicious. We didn't feel rushed. We would go back again.

We really enjoyed ourselves! We had a reservation for 6:30 and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated, but that didn't deter us. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun. We definitely will be back!

Great way to celebrate my son's 10th bday. The food was very good and the service was great. He enjoyed the chef's "show" and the staff singing Happy Birthday to him. They even took a family photo of us.

My Girlfriend's Birthday
We had dinner here on Saturday night 9/14 for my gf's bday and we had an amazing time! I only wish the cook did more tricks, but other than that it was a perfect night!

Hibachi chef was amazing
We went for our 14th anniversary and took our young sons. The show our hibachi chef put on was pretty amazing. The boys loved it and we loved our food. It was a very special experience.

Wonderful Dining Experienc!
My husband and I, along with two friends, decided to eat at Nakato Saturday night. It had been awhile since my husband and I had eaten there, and our friends had never eaten at Nakato. We were so excited that the dining experience was still as wonderful as ever; great service and great food! Our neighbors thoroughly enjoyed the meal and said they would frequent it often!
