Had a great time for dinner. Chef was fantastic and very energetic! You could tell he loves his job, and it just makes the experience that much better. Can't wait to go back to Nakama!!!

Delicious as always
I wish I could make my scallops at home like they do at Nakama.

The best sushi in town, but a bit pricey. The scallops are fantastic. Lots of food to eat.

I absolutely LOVE Nakama! It is hands down my favorite hibachi restaurant. Their shrimp sauce is amazing!! They have plenty to offer and the sushi is also amazing.

My filet mignon was very good, shrimp were definitely overlooked, veggies were good but no longer include mushrooms unless ordered separately. Soup and salad were good. Nice atmosphere and waitstaff.

We opted for sitting in the bar area (with some trepidation on my part) instead of at the grill due to time constraints, and ordered things we would normally not have gotten because of that. Liked my choices (would have preferred more white meat on my chicken kabobs), and given we were out on a Wednesday night, the bar crowd was pretty tame (and we left before the rowdies showed up to party). A nice meal out and the hostess was helpful in suggesting alternate seating so that we would be finished in time to make our show at the City Theater.

This is a hip hopping spot in the heart of Carson St. If you haven't been there you should try it. The food is great and the atmosphere is so fun. The staff is very friendly and attentive. We love it and try to get there whenever we are in town from Philadelphia.

Awesome, as always!
I had dinner here with friends to celebrate my birthday! I LOVE the ease of making reservations on OpenTable, and I loved our dinner experience! The chef was funny and entertaining and made us delicious food! I loved the crunchy philly roll and the martini menu is always to-die-for!

Always a great time!
Though our chef was not as animated and engaged as we have enjoyed in the past with other chefs, he prepared our filet
and tuna steak to the proper (requested) "doneness" . Our server, however, was very attentive and genuinely
seemed interested if we were enjoying our experience (Nakama offers more than just a meal). My modified "Citrus tini"
was delicious, rimmed in sugar.
Our daughter will be celebrating he 18th birthday here with a group of her girlfriends in a few weeks - Nakama is always a great place for celelebrating special occasions !!

I went here for the first time and was thoroughly impressed. Our chef was Luke and he did an amazing job on both cooking the food to perfection as well as making it a very fun and entertaining dinner!

Mothers Day Mayhem
We always enjoy our visit to Nakama and we celebrated Mothers Day on this visit. Everything was good save for the 20 minute wait to take our order and the surprise 18% gratuity that was automatically added to our check due to the Mothers Day holiday. No one likes surprises!

I've been here many times and have never been disappointed

Annoying dudes. Like everywhere.
Love this place. Always nice when money isnt a worry and you want a quality meal. The only downside is its in south side. You know what else is in south side? Every frat bro who flunked out of community college. The bar is too loud, so sit as far away as possible. I would not recommend this place on a weekend. If you are one of the aforementioned frat boys, no problem, right? Also- note to the wait staff from a Japanese speaker: its Na-ka-ma, not na-kam-a.

Great food and service
I loved it! The food was great! Your tuna steak is the best! Our cook was fabulous and entertaining! Got to meet some nice people!

This restaurant is always consistently good. I still think it's the best sushi around.

Best meal yet at Nakama
This was our best experience yet at Nakama. The chef was awesome and the food was delicious...seasoned and cooked just right.
6/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great place to dine for special occasions or a night fit for splurging on one of the best meals in Pittsburgh.

Great Time Had By All
This was a group outing that was meant to inspire team collaboration. The venue and experience proved to be effective. The seating was perfect, and the service was attentive.
6/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good for groups not a date
This restaurant is the place to be on the weekends - that being said...it is loud!!! I would recommend for the food, drinks and service, but not if you want to talk to your date!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is delicious, especially from the hibachi grill. The menu is definitely reasonably priced. Nakama has a nice ambiance and always draws in a crowd. Great place for birthdays and special occasions, but make sure to go with a large group--definitely not ideal for a date.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun atmosphere and great food.
Nakama is a great place to celebrate with friends.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tasty but too much food
The hibachi is a lot of food. There is no need to order a lot of extras. We had the diablo hibachi, which come with Soba noodles. Rice is redundant.

My boyfriend and I LOVE Nakama, and it never disappoints. Excellent service and you get exactly what you pay for and then some.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fantastic and the service was great. The only thing that wasn't great was a very loud and annoying group sitting at the table beside ours.

The noise level was very high, and it would be difficult to have any type of conversation with more than two people sitting together. The sushi was good, along with the steak dinners cooked at the table. There was a lot of groups of women, mostly parties and bachelorette groups.

My cousin was visiting from Missouri and we had been talking for a good six months about having a sushi dinner. Our party turned out to have eleven and although some of us got hibachi and some of us got sushi, we all truly enjoyed the experience of your restaurant. We are pressing my cousin as to when she may return for a visit, so we can have Sushi Sunday II.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good and the waitress was great. However, didn't care for the Hibachi chef Bob. I've had him in the past & didn't care for him back then either.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Quite Noisy
I visit Nakama fairly regularly, maybe once every 1-2 months. Hibachi is very good, sushi is amazing, but it is usually difficult to get a seat for sushi. Reservations for hibachi are good, but waiting for open seats at a table in the bar or at the sushi bar is sometimes annoying. Rewards program is great, they send tons of coupons

My husband and I took two
My husband and I took two college kids for dinner. We started with sushi and then moved to the hibachi grill. Our reservation time was honored and the chef was very entertaining and accommodated my food allergy information with great care. Our waitress was very attentive. The kids loved the show and the food was delicious.

My boyfriend and I went to Nakama for the first time. First, we made a reservation online and arrived about 15 mins early but were seated immediately. The atmosphere is awesome in this place. Our chef was very interactive with our group and performed many neat tricks. The food was done to perfection. They give very generous portions and I left very full, along with a take out container. I had the hibachi seasame chicken which was very good. The cook even gave us a sample of the Diablo sauce so we could possibly try something new the next time. Price wise, I feel that its pretty equal with every other hibachi establishment. $60 for two meals and drinks. We rave about our experience to others, so I highly recommend Nakama.

Good food, decent price
I really enjoyed my meal at Nakama. The amount of food you get for the price is great. And it's always enjoyable watching your food prepared directly in front of you!

My boyfriend and I went to nakama for dinner because in celebration of Veterans Day they were offering a free meal to military vets,, police officers, and firefighters. My boyfriend is a police officer. It was wonderful to see all of these men and women who protect us to get a very well-deserved free meal! And the food was fantastic.
