    We were taken almost immediately. We were seated at a very nice table. I had been to many hibachi restaurants. This was my friends first. This was my first time at Nakato and I would say their food quality from their soup salad and entree were superior to any other Hibachi type I have visit through out the US

    The food and service were good, but the tables for Hibachi are all in one room and the noise and smoke are too much.

    Despite having lived in Atlanta for 25 years we had never visited. It was excellent with a great chef and server along with excellent food quality and ambience. This will likely become our go to hibachi restaurant in Atlanta!

    I will never stop recommending Nakato. The garlic noodles are on par with the fried rice. Idk a lot of hibachi places that give you noodles too for free! The food is so good and flavorful. I can always depend on them to be quick. Never had a bad experience. Lovely restaurant, friendly staff.

    We LOVE this place and our kids have started to also. The Chef did an amazing job including them enough but also backing off some when they got worried about the flames. They do all the classic hibachi very well. Sushi here is also one of the best in town

    The food was literally mid, the noodles were thin like angel hair pasta the service was GREAT, but the food was just so mediocre. The fillet was bland, the shrimp was decent but I’ve had better, the noodles were THIN, and tasted bland as well.

    Good place, yummy food. The tip or fat of the steak is the yummiest part. Make sure when you order in the hibachi, the chef won't take it out and still serve to you. It should ve included in the meal you paid but didn't call out, don't want to cause the chef lose their job.

    This place is AMAZING every single time I eat here. Consistency is something that all restaurants do don have but Nakato is the exception. The cook was soooo much fun and the food was beyond delicious!!! It’s perfect for couples and families with children also!!! I will forever be a customer here!!!

    We had a reservation at 7pm. We had to wait 40 minutes before they seated us. We were a party of 4. The food was okay however, all of our fried rice was undercooked with hard pieces of rice throughout. Not happy to pay the $4 upgrade for the rice and it’s not cooked properly. Also, the scallops were over cooked and stringy. Our drink glasses weren’t refilled until the end of the meal when we asked for the check. Just not good service, food cook and flavor was not good and we will not be returning.

    One thing I didn't like my food was suppose to be cooked in the back because of my allergy for shellfish. They forgot and I had to wait 30 mins on my chicken to be cooked by then my noodles and vegetables was cold.

    We are from NY and saw this on top Atlanta restaurants so we wanted to go try it. Food, service and environment was phenomenal! We had chef Dan who spoke highly of Nakato and told us its been around since 1970’s and passed down through 3 generations. Amazing and tasty food!!
