"The menu is diverse with many traditional Japanese items as well as a number of excellent western style choices. The service is outstanding; attentive but not intrusive. The staff are very familiar with menu selections and are well able to offer suggestions. The food is fresh and well presented as you would expect from a high quality Japanese style restaurant!"

"Some of the best and freshest sushi we've had in a while! We went to Nakato for my wife's birthday and we felt it was a great decision. The sushi was excellent, as was the service. In fact, we feel like Nakato serves some of the best sushi in Atlanta. We highly recommend Nakato!"

"I haven't been to Nakato in years, and I'm kind of sad that it's taken me so long to get back here. Since many of my go-to Sushi spots have closed lately, and I was craving some this day, I decided to give it a shot, and I'm really glad I did. I started with Miso soup (which was ok...a bit too much soy sauce in it) and grilled calamari with a lemon butter sauce. That calamari was excellent, and I'm sure I will be back soon...just for that. I had two sushi rolls (negi Hamachi - yellowtail with scallions) and a Rainbow roll, which were both just excellent. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The server was very attentive and made certain that all of our expectations were met. There were other members of the staff who checked on us during our meal, which was very nice too. I will definitely visit this place again soon."

"I've always enjoyed Nakato, it's one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Atlanta. The Tuna Tataki is a must have and the Spicy Tuna Rolls are amazing, and the Sea Bass is so wonderful it makes you want another plate even though you're full."

"The staff at Nakato are always very attentive without being intrusive, the food is excellent. We had sake, several appetizers (nasu dengaku and tuna tataki), a set menu sushi dinner (we both had "Take" which is 9 pieces of sushi (chef's choice) and a maki), and dessert. It was all terrific. The nasu dengaku is a special favorite of ours. It's grilled eggplant in a miso sauce that is presented so that it looks like a maki roll. Excellent!!!"

"I had a scoutmob for a hot pot dinner for 2 and was very excited to use it. Upon arrival to the restaurant my reservation was not ready, but it was only a short 3 minute wait so that wasn't a problem. My partner and I were shown to a table near the window and we waited for a server to approach. When she did I made sure to tell her I had a scoutmob to which she replied "you have to have already purchased the scoutmob before coming to the restaurant." I had already done so and informed her. She scurried off. Water glasses were filled by another server and she came back and informed me that to use the scoutmob I would have needed to make a reservation. I had already done so and informed her that I had. She scurried off. At this point my partner and I were a bit unnerved and were worrying that we were going to be asked to leave due to some technicality. The server came back, gave us some well-worn scoutmob menus and then left. When she came back we ordered and the rest of the meal was pleasant. The server who brought the actual hot pot was delightful and the floor manager was very nice and thorough, asking us multiple times how our meal was going. The original server came back at the end to give us our check."

"This place is perfect for date nights and for special occasions. We had a coupon for a hot pot meal, so we were on the dining room side. Outside the window was scenic and peaceful, and the set-up of this area made our experience private. Every staff member we can in contact with, whether a bartender, our waiters, or the hostess, were kind and attentive. The food was also delicious! We had never had a hot pot meal before, and our waiter explained the process to us, which aided in our learning. We had a blast trying this out, and I know we will be back later on. Overall, Nakato provides you with fantastic food and wonderful service."

"Amazing food. Service was good but it felt like we were being rushed out of a half empty restaurant."
