Our experience was fantastic! We are both in the industry & work at a sushi restaurant and the sushi here was phenomenal . Our server was amazing. We didn’t have to ask for anything.

Great place to eat! Great Wine selection, had the 1997 Cake Bread Cabernet. I would highly recommend this place if you want great food and great vibe.

I've had pretty good sushi in the NY / NJ area and this would definitely be a place we'd go on the regular, so for the people of Pittsburgh PA, you guys deff have good sushi in town. Not only was the sushi good, but a great selection of beers, and a cool sports bar feel. Really hip, not something I expected in Pitt, very NYC like.

I love sushi. So much. I recently moved from Boston, eating awesome sushi once a week, to middle of nowhere PA...with no sushi. When we stayed in the city for a night, we were ready for any sushi we could find. We really enjoyed the sushi at Nakama.

terrible horrible service – I totally agree with every reviews on here that talk about the terrible service and rude awful manager. I've eaten at nakama a few times. It's either hit or miss. My time there is either great with no problems or a horrible experience. The times I've had problems the manager has not lifted a finger to make anything better, grudgingly taken bad food away rolling his eyes, asked me what I wanted him to do about my rock hard rice .... He's a rude bastard and I have NO idea how he got the job as the manager.

Lots of Hotties – Great food and a Lot of Hotties at happy hour.

I get lots of phone numbers, because I am really good looking.

Once a gril names Tammy , told me I looked like a movies star. She is right.
