We come here at least every Christmas Eve and tonight was no exception! We got our reservations wrong and arrived an hour early, but they still worked hard to get us seated. See you next year!

THE WORST ! And all these 4 an...

THE WORST ! And all these 4 and 5 stars MUST be the owners! . I planned my daughters 16th birthday dinner at this place. When I called and made the reservations for a party of 35, I asked and confirmed and then verified again they had seating big enough for ALL 35 guest to fit at the SAME table, I was ensured that they had the requested space and it would be NO PROBLEM to accommodate everyone. The host on the phone also wanted to make sure I understood they did NOT seat incomplete parties and went on and on about being on time for our reserved time. Will that was on a Thursday a week and one day before the party, due to the number of people in our party the Manager called me back on that following Tuesday to confirm all 35 guest would still be in attendance and the party was still on. I worked extremely hard and all 35 guest were in attendance 20 min BEFORE our reservations, and keep in mind most had to travel at least 35 – 40 miles to arrive. Turns out reservations for Nakato’s means arrive on time and WAIT an additional HOUR to be seated!. WHAT A JOKE!, I was given the outrageous excuse of them booking 2 parties for 35 people at the same time, same night, and get this we BOTH had the same name! yeah right. Needless to say due to the distance we traveled, the reason we were there, and the time we had no choice but to wait or take a 16 year old home very disappointed, AND on top of that we had to spread our party out between 3 tables! Disappointed is a understatement. I WOULD NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER GO BACK TO NAKATO JAPANESE RESTUARNT! AND WOULD NOT RECOMMEND them to my worst enemy!. They have to respect for their customers time or money, wait staff unprofessional, and to top of a horrible evening the valet tried to rip off one of my guest by stating he only gave a 5 when the guest actually gave the guy a 20….go figure.

Very Nice!

I have driven past Nakato's many times and finally stopped in one day and was amazed at how big it is. It's really two restaurants: a japanese hibachi steakhouse on one side and a sushi bar/traditional japanese restaurant on the other side. The sushi side is the side I visited this night. Let me tell you their sushi is incredible! I couldn't beleive how good it was. I got the toro (fatty tuna) and it literally melted in my mouth. I also got the dragon roll and loved that as well.



Definately recommend! Next time I'll try the Hibachi side.

subtle, quality

After eating at sort-of Americanized sushi restaurants in Atlanta (quite happily) I tried Nakato--and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the simple subtlety of the flavors, the quality of the ingredients, and elegance of presentation. A very pleasant experience for a different kind of sushi.
