Birthday celebration was great! The service was great and food was tasty. I totally recommend!
Great place for a birthday dinner for families and friends
If you book the Hibachi side be aware of the loudness. The
We were seated in the area where it’s tradition to take your shoes off. We thoroughly enjoyed ourself and our meal. Great experience!
So much fun! Great food and excellent service.
Awesome, 5-Star dining experience! From the moment our family of six walked in to Nakato we were greeted with the warmest smiles. We felt so at home and were seated right away for our 4 pm reservations. My husband and I went with our four little ones and absolutely loved our server, Martina. She was so personable, kind and attentive. Our chef was amazing and cooked our steak, shrimps and chicken dinners to perfection. The food was very flavorful and not too salty, which was a huge plus for us. My oldest son also has a food allergy and soy sensitivity and was pleasantly accommodated with a piping hot meal cooked completely soy-sauce free in the back kitchen. So thankful to the Lord for such an awesome family dinner at a wonderful family restaurant. We will definitely be back!
Great restaurant! Hibachi was flavorful which was a nice surprise I spotted that seasoned butter! Great service and we will definitely be back.
Robert, the chef, made the best food and performed the best tricks while cooking. The kids had a blast!
We finally had a great server. Fun place to eat as always!
Everything was great. We have food allergies so our food was cooked in the back. It have had to touch something because we had a reaction, but a little Benadryl and we was fine. A little more careful next time.
We have always loved Nakato, the food is top quality, great sushi and hibachi, and good service.
Everything was wonderful this time. Our hibachi chef was great and entertaining. The food was yummy and so good. My family and I all enjoyed everything.
I celebrated my bday and it was amazing!!
We had a great time! The service and our food was superb!!
I made the request for the birthday package & agreed to the extra fee. They never performed the bday song, no t-shirt, nor picture. They actually left! This was our first experience :-(
Celebrating a birthday. Our chef Anthony was amazing and very entertaining.
It was my brother’s birthday. He had never experienced Hibachi so I took the whole family for the Hibachi experience but we weren’t able to do that since we are allergic to shellfish and other two people on our Hibachi ordered Shrimp. Our food was cooked in the back and it was cold. My brother ordered Filet Minion and we ordered Chicken. Everything was cold and we ordered fried rice which was cooked in the back and cold as well.
I love this place 🥰
Great food but needs remodeling
Great place to eat. Food was bomb and chef was energetic but not too extra. Enjoyed a birthday dinner where they honored my wife. Very appreciative.
It was a tad loud in the restaurant, but that's to be expected to an extent in a place like this. The food was great! I ordered the tofu dinner and it was spectacular. The chef that we had was very entertaining and had just as much fun as we did
Ryan did a great job 10/10 will be coming back and requesting him again!!!
Hostess was rude!
Cook and waitress were excellent.
Friendly and attentive wait staff. Had hibachi and sushi. The food was good and we enjoyed it.
Food and service was great
Tasty food. Well seasoned. Good service
18th birthday dinner
The chef and waitress both were excellent. My wife and I were celebrating our 58th anniversary, and have celebrated many other special occasions at Nakato’s in the past. The food was superb as usual.
We have always enjoyed Nakato for special occasion dinners. The food is consistently good however I did notice the Miso Soup was very watered down this time. This isn't typical so I was surprised. Our chef Anthony was a breath of fresh air! He put on a great show and really worked the table well with chit chat and jokes aplenty. Nakato is our go-to for Atlanta Hibachi!
We visit the location on numerous occasions, 08/10/21 was a birthday celebration; Unfortunately the server was terrible. She only visited our table twice during our dinner and those times were due to someone in our party having to get up from the private table to request what was needed. The *CHEF* was fantastic, I would have preferred the 18% tip that was included in the bill to go directly to him and not the server. I understand there are times when you are extremely busy but that should never take away from the service the customers receive.
Food was delicious. We liked how they had a plastic partition up between each party at the hibachi tble.
Had an amazing time. My daughter celebrated her 8th birthday and our chef, Anthony, was awesome! My daughter and family were very pleased. And the food was very well done.
The cook touch the raw chicken with the scapula. Then proceed to pass out the cook rice with the same thing he used to touch the raw chicken with.
Carlos was a wonderful chef, and very entertaining. Jacob was our waiter. The front staff were friendly.
The host and waiter was fast and efficient customer service was great
I was extremely disappointed in what Nakato has become based on my experience with the restaurant in years past. What was once a high end hibachi restaurant that stood head and shoulders above Benihana is now a sad substitute to Benihana.
The food quality is very poor and yet the cost is high. The space has not been updated in years and appears dirty and noisy. I have to suspect that Nakato has cut corners and costs in order to stay in business during the pandemic but I cannot believe how bad it was.
I will not be returning.
We went for my boyfriends birthday. It was amazing. The food was great. The staff was so friendly and awesome. I would
definitely go again.
It was cool
The hibachi is not up to the hype that is out there - and much more expensive than other comparable Hibachi places. Steak, Lobster & Shrimp were all overcooked (Lobster was inedible). Noodles are too salty (teriyaki is salty so this is more of a preference, rather than a criticism). Special requests were not adhered to by the chef and he seemed a bit confused. HOWEVER, the service was very good, attentive and friendly. I have not had any other items at Nakato, so this is only a statement about the hibachi.
The service was great, the experience was awesome, and the food and drinks were outstanding .
