Lovely meal. Some of the best Japanese food I’ve ever had. I’d say better than Nobu. Service was great as well. Be aware there is a 18% tax and a 10% service charge outside of the tip for the waiter because it’s located with the casino. But overall great experience.

Overall this was a good dining experience in a beautiful area. We were unaware that a QR code would be required to enter Cap Cana. We arrived 2 hours before our reservation to walk around and it took about 30 minutes to receive the code from the restaurant. So this is something to be aware of.
The restaurant had great service but unfortunately they did not have any salmon the day we went so this took out over half the sushi options on the menu. The sushi we did receive was excellent and the miso soup and filet mignon with fried rice was delicious. They spoke English very well in the restaurant and it was easy to communicate.

El local en si es bonito, pero al llegar noté que en ka mesa tenía servilleta de papel y la clásica excusa es por el COVID entonces porque no ma vasos plásticos o cubiertos plásticos también no es lo mismo!??? Claro entendemos la pandemia pero la servilleta se puede lavar con productos específicos para desinfectar quizás el producto cuesta mas caro pero quando voy a cenar a un lugar exclusivo como Nakamura exigo servilleta de tela no servilleta de comedor
Lo sushi demasiado salsas le ponen en cima no se porque parece que no quieren que se sientan el sabor del pescado
El seviche muy bueno

Once I made the reservation via open table I immediately received the confirmation of my booking. There was no information either on the restaurant or on Open table about what I will report. Upon arrival to CAP Cana which is the complex where the restaurant is located I was not allowed to enter even by showing the reservation confirmation. I was sent to an office outside the complex to be able to get my pass to enter CAP CANA. The person who was as this supposed customer center said that my reservation was not valid as the restaurant had not sent my details for her to allow me to enter the CAP CANA complex. She then gave me a telefone number for me to call the restaurant who acknowledged that they had not sent my information and requested the ID cards via whats app. When the customer service person saw that my "reservation" was real by listening to my conversation she asked for the ID's and said she could expedite my entry which I refused because she had not received from the restaurant their request. All of this took about 30 minutes. I eventually gave her the IDs and it took here 2 minutes to issue the pass. The person whom I had spoken on the telephone could have warned that the restaurant had faulty air conditioning and that the restaurant felt like a sauna, which we only found out once we arrived at the restaurant. The food is very basic as well as the menu.... Don't waste your time, there are much better restaurants in Punta Cana - Bavaro area.

Buena ! El servicio un poco lento debido a que no tienen demasiado personal , imagino que por la pandemia y algunos productos no los tenían , por ejemplo ningún sushi con salmón .

The sushi was fresh and delicious. The beef was excellent. Try the fillet with the mushroom sauce. So good.

The drinks were also good and the service was outstanding.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

NAKAMURA was hand's down our favorite dining experience while visiting Punta Cana last week. They provided complimentary transportation to and from our Airbnb to their location. The customer service was spectacular all evening. We ordered miso soups, a sushi roll, and the surf and turf poke bowl along with a bottle of sake. Everything was delicious!!! To top it off, they treated my friend to a sumptuous chocolate cake and sang a Portuguese song to wish her happy birthday at the end of the evening. That was the best coconut infused chocolate cake we have ever tasted! The team at NAKAMURA go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and well taken care of during your culinary experience. I highly recommend this place for any occasion. I wish we could go back now!
