  • Awesome service, beautiful landscaping outside.
  • Horrible management. Made a reservation for 9 PM, but weren't seated until 10 PM. Their excuse: we didn't think you would be here by then. Not very smart people running the place.
  • Amazing birthday dinner!!!
  • If you like chawan mushi they do it right
  • Off the beaten path, but elegant and friendly, this is a great restaurant. The Nakato Special with skewered chicken, sushi and filet mignon at $23 is the best deal in the house! One Word: Yummy!!
  • They have a great happy hour: 5 dishes plus a drink for $15 between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
  • Try the lamb chops for appetizer! Yummy and this sake. Great!
  • Try Cayrum, its a dark rum aged 3 years and then infused with all natural ginger and honey. Its great as a chilled shot, on the rocks, ginger ale/beer, juices or Red Bull. Theres nothing like it!
  • Besha recommends the Sushi here. Nuff said.
  • not just a grill- also has fine dining (but you can still order from the grill).
  • Watch their website and facebook for 'name that fish' Fridays. Be the first to get the correct answer to get a discount on your next meal.
  • Best sushi in town. Its even better if you show up early & order off the happy hour sushi menu...
  • Absolute best sushi hands down! And authentic. A great family owned restaurant.
  • Tad bid expensive but worth it
  • A cut above most chain hibachi places. Great for a party of 6+ (or 10, 12+). It is LOUD and your clothes will be fragrant when you leave, but the chefs do a great show. Sirloin steak is great.
  • Their hot pot is really good here. Also ask for a pickle assortment and have it with a beer.
  • Love the white kelp rolls!! Sit at the sushi bar and the chefs will recommend what's fresh for the day
  • its alright
  • The Yum Yum roll is one of my favorite rolls!
