    The freshest, best sushi in town. So delicious and packed with flavor. Nash Dengaku is a must as is the crispy spicy tuna.

    We brought our house guest from Japan and she was so pleased with the menu options and the quality of the food. The hotpot was enjoyed by all. We got to take a look at the traditional Japanese private dining rooms in the back, and they were beautiful. Our guest said she felt like she was back home in Japan. We will be back!

    We sat in the sushi/dining area. The ambience was very family-friendly, but unfortunately it was date night for us. Rather bright and loud. The sushi was just okay.

    Nakato is always awesome! This may have been my best experience ever! The atmosphere was great and everything we ate was delicious and fresh! I eat nigiri and sashimi all over the country - Nakato ranks with the best I've had! And the Beef Negimaki...my goodness! Thank you!

    Unfortunately, this will be our last time going to this restaurant. Food was terrible. Chef was heavy handed with the pepper on the noodles and fried rice. Asked for well done filet mignon for me and my kid. Most of the meat was medium rare. By that time my kid was disgusted and ready to leave. Server was polite and he even noticed it. Doesn't matter if you don't think it should be cooked a certain way. I'm a paying customer and expected my food to be cooked how I ordered it.

    We went to celebrate an anniversary. The service was slow, and not particularly helpful or warm. The restaurant itself was a bit scruffy and not totally clean (an absolute no-no for a Japanese restaurant!). The soy sauce container on the table was empty so had to grab one off another table. The tempura shrimp served 'on top' of the udon noodles was soggy when it arrived. The inari were good. The main positive point was that the actual sashimi and sushi, once served, was excellent. Dessert was mediocre. Meal was very expensive. Bottom line: the sashimi and sushi was the best I've had in Atlanta, but the overall experience was not great and price was high, so not sure we will be back soon.
