Well...Me and my daughter ordered water with lemon...and we water without lemon...we ordered salad instead of soup...we both soup ...we ....ordered choice of three - steak, shrimp and ...chicken- they had me down for steak and chicken...added the shrimp after the chef came and confirmed my order was wrong. .. then instead of being charged lunch choice of they..$18.50...They charged $ 8.00 xtra shrimp???? Lordy. The food was great! But the server was not paying attention to what she was writing down. She even repeated the order. They did correct the bill instead of 25.50...tbry charged 20.00. The menu said 18.50? Oh well. May be she was a new server. Won't go back . See More

I love this place. My hubby, son and I ate there last night. Wonderful food and wonderful service. ❤️ Even though I got shrimp sauce thrown at me, (no it was not done on purpose and the waitress along... with management was very apologetic and brought me wet warm rags to clean myself up lol) I will still be back!! 😁 I didn’t expect my bill to be cut short or to receive anything for free. Our cook and waitress worked very hard last night and it was very satisfying!! See More

Been coming here for years now, the service today was the worst I’ve ever had. Brooke our waitress paid more attention to the people at our table and forgot about us. Had to ask for everything from a ...refill to clearing table so we could had some arm room in such a small space. Asked her is there any reason she paid such small attention to us vs the other couple at table. She had no reason at all! Brought to management (David) attention and he said she was having a bad day. Bad day with exactly who us or herself. Paid for my food brought to his attention all I can say is pay more attention to how your staff treats people of any race other than white. Because people of color are not treated the same point blank! All good I hope the tip they left you was worth you breaking your neck to please them so you could just ignore us! Not cool Nakato good luck making money knowing this is how your treat people of color at your establishment. See More

I went with a 2 - 2.5 might be more accurate..... not a fan of nickel and diming - so to charge a couple of extra bucks for fried rice (at a Japanese place!!!) then not bring you the steamed rice was supposedly included with the meal is annoying - but some people will not care about that so let’s focus on the food....

I got the shrimp & chicken, the chicken was actually both seasoned and cooked very well (not over cooked and dry) - the shrimp however had so little taste that when I shared with my 4 year old she said, “is that real food, or are you pretendin’?” I said, “yes - why?”... her reply, “because it doesn’t taste like anything!!”. The soup was extra good, the salad average at best (I make a much better ginger dressing)!!! My daughter said the noodles were good but she also thinks McDonald’s nuggets are good......

My wife got steak (strip) and I tried it and it was pretty good... ALL portion sizes were tiny (except the shrimp appetizer- it was the normal 2 shrimp)..

I was here for a birthday dinner - and sort of glad I came - it reinforces to me that Tsuki is 10x better at minimum - food quality, taste, portion size and price (no nickel & diming)...

My fiancé surprised me with dinner reservations for 2 at Nakato. I was very surprised because I've never been to a hibachi style restaurant. So imagine my surprise. I was quite turned off by the hoste...sses at the front door, there was no warm welcoming feeling absolutely no enthusiasm. We got seated at a table with children and adults. This was to be a romantic night for the both of us but didn't feel that way at all. The chef was less to be desired, my fiancé had to remind them that it was my birthday. We were expecting a little more than a melted candle in a dipping bowl for a bill totaling $68.00 plus tip. The food was bland, it was too congested, we were sitting in the aisle where they had to keep moving by us with carts etc etc... Needless to say we won't be back. See More

Yesterday 10/26/2017 we’ve arrived at this place and we got seated after 25 to 30 min wait and that’s ok but after we were seated we’ve waited again over an hour for the cook to come to our table to c...ook our meal so meaning to say I wasn’t a very happy customer celebrating a 50th Birthday. We have to ask someone, what happened to our cook, when is he gonna start cooking our dinner.
That is not a good business conduct..

The hibachi was very good. I had the steak and salmon! Cooked perfectly and amazing. Only downfall and not a huge deal is that you have to pay for hibachi rice. First place I saw do this. You get rice included. Had the 49er roll as an appetizer and loved it. See More

The portions of food have been reduced, but the meal and service was excellent. My husband and I split a meal and still had enough to bring home.

Great food and fun atmosphere. Only suggestion is to have the meal progression slowed down, not enough time between salad, soup, rice , noodles and meal. Felt rushed.

One of the best ones in the Charlotte area! A little bit of a wait, but for Saturday evening, not too bad. Food was reasonably priced, while the bar was a tad pricey.

Nice ambiance. Excellent customer service and cooking. Good food. The issue I had was that we waited for someone to start cooking too long. Secondly, the protein should be cooked before the seafood.... The chicken and steak take much longer so you will either be almost done eating the rice noodles and vegetables or your food will be cold while you are waiting for the meat. See More

We went on a Friday night, we had a party of 7. I knew with such a large group I needed reservations. So we called and were given a reservation for 8pm. We were seated by 8:10, other guests arrived a ...few mins late.. We were seated, greeted and began our "experience"... We had a great waitress who promptly served us each our appetizers until the chef arrived. Now our chef was absolutely the best hibachi chef I've ever had!! He made the best jokes, the fire was amazing, and the food was even better!! Definitely a memorable experience!! Only reason I gave 4 stars is because they forgot to sing Happy birthday... On a busy night I wouldn't have minded, but they weren't busy at all... I would definitely return!!! The food and show are great!!! See More

Absolutely amazing! From the service to the food, no complaints. My husband and I had a well deserved weekend getaway. We went with no reservations and we were told approx 30 min. We sat at the sushi until the hibachi was ready. We ordered drinks and sushi and were promptly served. Our hibachi was ready well before 30 min and the chef and staff were great! My husband's and I had a favorite hibachi in Las Vegas, however... now, it is this one! Thank you. See More
