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!

I took my family in here last Sunday and they all loved it. My mother in-law said that this is by far the best Japanese restaurant in the area.

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.

Too many small children. Thought this would be a good place for my parents 65th and 69th BDay, but turns out we were also celebrating with lots of 6 and unders. Got over that. The cook only did a big flame and the fire volcano. No other tricks or entertainment. I was very disappointed. And..the food. Not enough. The cook did not bring enough food. Then he was heavy hand with the first two plates, but by the time he came to plates 6,7,8 we got so little food. To make matters worse, we were the people paying for this big party!! Good place for children parties. It was like a Kinder Kare without toys and games. Will not return. Did not get my money's worth or anywhere close.

This places is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets. They have a friendly staff and some of the best sushi in town. They prepare the food right in front of you, and can help you make a decison on your meal if you dont know what you want.

I have always admired how sake is done and what it is made of.. aside from the fact that I love drinking it .. Nakato offers a variety to choose from , I will surely come back for more!

I love Japanese Food.. ever since I have traveled to Japan 2 years ago .. I fell in love with their dishes...I find Nakato to be one those places that can really give you what you came for in a restaurant.. from the place .. to the staff and of course a toast to the food !

I really had a satisfying meal over at Nakato. I usually order their Chef's Special and calamari. Nakato definitely tops my fave Japanese resto list!
