Overall a great choice.
The best hibachi style scallops you will find. The xoxo roll is amazing. Good variety of saki. The mandatory valet parking is akward. Will be back and recommend to anyone.

Almost hidden, this little gem is a fantastic way to leave the everyday behind and set into authentic Japanese surroundings. Friendly staff, option of tradition, sushi bar and private tatami mat dining, this restaurant was above what I expected. The grilled salmon was well prepared and the yakitori and shumai were highly delightful. I will definitely go back to this restaurant and highly recommend it to anyone looking to experience either a little piece of home, or just gain some new experiences.

It was such a wonderful experience. Everything was perfect and went above my expectations. I'm so glad I picked Nakoto restaurant. I plan on going again in the future.

Some of the Best Sushi in Atlanta
Nakato's sushi is so fresh and the wide selection leaves plenty of options for all. Every piece is decadent, flavorful and just plain delicious. Their selection of Sake is also tremendous, and though I'm not usually a huge Sake fan, they have several that are worth trying. The staff is always kind and welcoming They never rush you and it's never too slow, just right. I highly recommend Nakato for some of the best sushi in town!

Had Fun Friday night. the wait was less than 15 minutes to the hibachi grill. Pay attention to when you make reservations online. I chose traditional seating but the staff is very accommendating and will allow you to sit by the grill if seats are availible. the bar was not crowded and the speciality drinks are good. If you do not have a big party, you will be seated with strangers which can be a good or bad thing. for my boyfriend and I it was a good thing. They have free valet parrking which is nice also. It overall was a nice place for hibachi and a good time

Great happy hour sushi!
I went there for an early dinner, and found they have a great happy hour sushi menu (ends at 6:30 PM).
$3 for 8 piece sushi rolls (california, spicy tuna, spicy salmon, and seafood rools) and other appetizers.
Sushi chef also prepared a fried shimp head for us. I've been meaning to try one, and it was delicious.
I'll definitely be back for happy hour soon.

We loved this place - every roll we got was delicious. The chef understood the balance of good sushi, really letting the ingredients stand out without drowning them in sauce. The two of us finished 7 rolls-a record for us. Definitely the best sushi experience in Atlanta.

For Sukiyaki Lovers!!!!!
What a wonderful meal.. the freshest of beef slices delicately and quickly cooked in the Sukiyaki broth at your table..
Wonderful mushrooms (3 kinds). The sushi is super fresh and just slides down your throat..
I highly recommend Nakato

My husband and I have been
My husband and I have been returning to Nakato once a year for as long as we've lived in the area. It is our favorite special occasion spot and we look forward to it all year. This year we went on vacation to Japan, and even after having gone, we still think Nakato is superb. We always sit in the traditional dining room and enjoy sushi and dessert (and the blueberry sparkly sake--yum!). I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for great Japanese.

I learned to appreciate great sushi at Nakato's sushi bar several years ago thanks to one of the restaurant's greatest chefs - Sazuki. He had to return to Japan for his family, but I will be forever grateful to him. Nakato has the best sushi in Atlanta area, and the staff always makes you feel so special!
I highly recommend this restaurant if you appreciate great food!

Had the shabu-shabu, japanese hot-pot...really good; the service was impeccable, I felt I was at home with my japanese mom. We ate in the traditional dining room and not the hibachi dining room

I had omakase style dining for my birthday. It was $80 per person. Not alot of food but it was special and different. The sushi and sashimi was exceptional. And sushi chef Tetsuji Nishihara was telling us about what he was making the whole time.

We dine in the private room. The service and food was very good. Much better than Benihana.

My date and I both had sashimi platters - the sushi chef was kind enough to design each so that they had some different items, allowing us to share and sample more different kinds of fish. Everything was impeccably fresh and very savory. The sake list is beyond extensive, with many good choices on it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good sushi.
