Great place for good hibachi style dining. The cooking is as you would expect from any hibachi place. The vegetables (which can seem to scrimp on the more expensive ingredients at another hibachi on Pineville-Matthews) are always balanced. There is normally a crowd, but our family has found the best time to go is Sunday right when they open. Sunday is the only day they serve lunch, so take care not to visit for weekday lunch.

Enjoyed a wonderful night at the sushi bar last night with my wife. We had rolls with crab and shrimp, cucumber, eel sauce, etc. Wonderfully fresh and sauces had great flavor. Good portions with pieces not oversized like some places. Waitress service was prompt and just right. Can't say enough. We will be regulars!

I never have written a review before, but wanted to express my enjoyment eating here. The food was excellent, I didn't think it was possible to make rice taste absolutely amazing. The staff was awesome, Chief Baker was really on his game, very engaging to be a tough job. The waitress was fantastic, (Britney) It was really great to see the manager on the floor the whole time doing a little bit of everything. an over all proper manager and staff. Decor was really nice, great sushi bar. one of a kind with the boats. Please share the feed back to everyone if its possible, they deserve to know. P.S. First time eating at a Nakato's 11-1-15 Larry Greenville S.C

Party of six for a birthday dinner. Service was excellent, food was great (early bird special is a great deal), and prices are not bad for what you get. Chef Chris put on a great show!

I used to go there almost everyday when I worked in the area. I've moved since then & will make a special trip over there on my birthday. The atmosphere is family-friendly & the staff is great. Now my bill is a little more expensive (being a mother) than it used to be as a single lady. But my daughter really loves the food & now I can go whenever I like❤

Very clean! great environment, i loved the sushi boats floating around the sushi bar. The chef we had was very funny but professional at the same time. he cooked everything perfectly and it was a joy talking to him after he prepared our meals. The service was a little slow on refilling drinks, but it was a busy sat night so I wont take off points for that. Overall it was a great dining experience and we will definitely be returning.

This a good place been here a couple of times. Really liked the sushi rolls from my previous visits. I guess tonight wasn't my night I got some rolls that looked like they were out for a couple of hours. Funny thing this guy comes and try to tell me that that's how all spicy tuna rolls taste. I'm like it's Saturday night I don't want to argue about food. So whatever hope next time if I come back everything goes well.

I love the noodles. I always order extra servings. Be sure to come hungry.
