Filet Mignon & Chicken

Visited last year for Valentine's Day and ordered the filet mignon and chicken. The steak was the best and most tender I've ever had, really fun experience.

Kushiyaki Skewers

My wife and I love going to Nakato - it's our favorite Japanese restaurant in Atlanta. Nakato has consistently delivered great quality of food and service each time we visit. We particularly enjoy the beef skewers at Nakato - the beef is tender, perfectly grilled, and great teriyaki sauce. Absolutely delicious.

Slow Cooked Pork

This dish is absolutely delicious. The pork is so tender it practically melts in your mouth. It is also well marinated in the sauce - it is very flavorful all around. It's hard to pick a favorite at Nakato because the food is so good you really can't go wrong trying anything, but this dish has got to be my favorite at Nakato!

Filet Mignon & Shrimp

Absolutely wonderful meal and experience. Everything was fresh and delicious. We ordered some of the sushi as well and thought it was FANTASTIC! Kids loved the hibachi experience and being able to sit on the ground. We will be back very soon!

Lobster & Shrimp

The Lobster and Shrimp were grilled to perfection. Along with the fried rice and the great chef, Nakato provided a great experience for me and my date.

Agedashi Tofu

Hands down - the best agedashidofu I've had in Georgia - and I've tried a lot! I could say the same thing for the many other dishes I've had...but this tofu is my favorite (other than the sea urchin flown in on the weekends!).

Shrimp & Chicken

My favorite hibachi establishment in Atlanta! I've never had a bad meal here, the food is always incredible. The service is top notch, even if I don't have a reservation I'm seated and eating within the hour. Love this place! The sushi is excellent as well and fresh

Chocolate Mousse Cake

I love Nakato! This cake was fantastic, it was rich and had just the right amount of hazelnut to go with the deep chocolate. I also had the chicken teriyaki and it was incredible. Our server Kay was fantastic, my friends and I had an amazing time with lots of laughs. Highly recommend to everyone!

Illuminati Roll*

Nakato is one of my favourite restaurants in Atlanta. My friends and I dine there regularly. The food is delicious, authentic, and so fresh. We always get an Illuminati Roll- as well as Spicy Tuna and a Killer roll- and a few other things. The service is always delightful. There is absolutely nothing we don't love. We only wish they served lunch and sold their addictive green tea. Gracey Hitchcock

Assorted Sashimi*

Their sashimi is outrageous- it melts in your mouth, like butter. It's got to be some of the best we've ever had and we've tried different sushi restaurants all over the country and even in Greece. Love the atmosphere here and the service was wonderful too. Can't wait to return!

Hibachi Shrimp

I first tried Nakato's amazing food via a food delivery service. I ordered the most delicious hibachi shrimp, I've ever tried. Period. The shrimp was cooked perfectly and had that perfect hibachi flavor. My wife is still raving about the soup and salad, and I couldn't have enough of the noodles and the fried rice. 10/10. This is the best Japanese restaurant I've ever tried, and you can bet I'll be trying it again soon. And next time, we'll be visiting in person!

Hibachi Steak

Nakato is everything you imagine a Japanese Restaurant should be and more. I love hibachi and used to go to another popular hibachi place but I was constantly disappointed. My boyfriend surprised me and a good friend of mine and took us to Nakato because I kept saying I wish there was a great hibachi place in Atlanta. Needless to say I'm at Nakato at least once every two weeks. From the cleanliness and service to the delicious meals and sushi, Nakato is unmatched. The chefs are friendly and entertaining and I loved the twist on my meal when I received noodles in addition to the vegetables. The portions are filling and the drinks are worth every penny. I've been with family, friends, on a date, and taken food to go by myself. And if you're going for a birthday, be prepared to hear them sing!!

Filet Mignon & Calamari

I went with my coworkers for our holiday dinner and I had an amazing experience!!! The staff was more than helpful and had extraordinary customer service!!! They have complimentary valet which made things so much easier when bring in the gifts I bought for everyone... the restaurant was clean and so were the bathrooms... there was no long wait and the food was amazing!!! Our chef was so much fun... We have a very diverse staff we have different nationalities and vegans and everyone had a blast and genuinely enjoyed themselves... I'm taking my daughter this weekend and I know she will love it😆

Traditional "Sukiyaki"

This is the best sukiyaki in Atlanta by far. Start with Uni and the eggplant appetizer. Spectacular dinner, service is always great.

Traditional "Sukiyaki"

There are few things as comforting as Sukiyaki on a cold day. This beef hot pot, consisting of fresh vegetables, thinly sliced tender beef, and noodles, is all you need to warm your soul. Aside from the food tasting good, I love the experience of cooking at the table with my friends. The sukiyaki meal gives us a less structured and more relaxed experience and is something I look forward to every winter.

Dragon Roll

The sushi roll was amazing. Everything was freshly made at the sushi bar and our server was very nice and helped my friend and I find witch rolls would best suit our taste buds, last but not least the Icecream was very good. It was a great way to end our dinner. I will definitely be coming back!
