Nakato Japanese Restaurant
- Open Now
this place was amazing. the veggies couldve been cooked a little longer with a little more sauce but thats honestly my only complaint. i had a medium rare new york strip which came out perfect, barely any fat on it and the fat was completely edible and not tough and the temp on it was perfect. i also had the chicken, it was juicy and tasty and amazingly cooked, the rice was seasoned great, so were the noodles, the bar drinks have a good bit of alcohol in them but not too much so i was really happy with every part of my meal.
We cant wait to come back again for our next special occasion! Weve been looking for a good hibachi restaurant for about a year here. This one is amazing! Our waitress was very helpful and quick, the chef was engaging, and the atmosphere was lovely. Unlike many hibachi places, the restaurant was very open, making it where the smoke didnt just cloud up the room. The food was amazing. I ordered tofu and vegetables; the tofu was some of the best Ive ever had. The only reason its 4 stars is just because theres not a soup option for vegetarians. I wouldve been over the moon to have some miso soup or something similar that would be safe for vegetarians. Otherwise, a 5 star experience!
So thankful someone cancelled. Make sure to make reservations as this place was full. The food was excellent and the portion was healthy and we got our show as well. My husband is allergic to seafood so they cooked his separate...awesome...i do recommend
Nakato University is always extremely accommodating with our gluten free needs and shellfish allergy. They are very thorough in their packing and preparation. We have also found them to have the BEST sushi in Charlotte! :)
We did not have reservations so we were not able to sit at a hibachi table, but we were still seated promptly. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Service was perfect, attentive without hovering, and the food was amazing.
