$240 down the DRAIN – 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.

Good Eats – 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.

Delicious Japanese Food! – 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 !

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I just wanted to reach out and say "THANK YOU!" for being such a fan. We appreciate it. I hope you have a great holiday season.

Had a good time! – 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!

My sister visited me once with her Japanese friend. We ended up here to give him a taste of home. The attendants were so congenial and the service was superb! It was nice to know that our guest enjoyed it a lot since he had a feel of Japan in Atlanta.

arigatougozaimasu (thank you) for the experience – I was never really a fan of Japanese food. My colleague brought me here last Saturday and introduced me to their eccentric menu. We sent in our orders, and I found myself enjoying every bite of it. They definitely changed my taste for sushi. I was craving for more! It was truly a delightful experience.
