So many people told me this place was great. I didn't have a "great" experience. The environment was very nice, but I thought the food was mediocre. Hinode is so much better!

Went one other time prior and ordered sushi. Waitress forgot to put order in so never received it. Decided to try again on this occasion and once again never received our sushi that was ordered. Amazing how what could have been a $60 bill, turns into a $25.00 bill. This business is loosing money if they keep it up.

We're suckers for hibachi restaurants and went expecting to enjoy it. We weren't disappointed. It was a Friday night at 6pm and the place was very busy. We thought we might have to wait, but they seated us right away. I was impressed how big the place was and how many hibachi grills they had available. The server came immediately... More

Nakato is, in my opinion, the best restaurant in Springfield. They make your food right in front of you, and your meal comes with soup, salad, noodles, rice, and steamed vegetables. This is a great place for special occasions!

Went here because we were in town on Sunday and our usual place closed. I think all the people raving about this place has surely never tried the others in the area like Fujis! Portions very small compared to other like places. Seafood sauce tasted basically like mayo. One guy at our table didn't order but rice and noodles were... More

Food is excellent, congratulations to the Chef David! The waitress was smiley, but she seemed like she was kind of distracted, I asked for a wifi code as I saw a signal in my phone, I asked two times the waitress and she finally answer me that the internet was not open for public, so sad... When we were about... More

This has the best Japanese food in Springfield! My family loves Nakatos. The sauces they serve are better than any other Japanese restaurants I have tried. The soup is delicious and the ginger dressing on the salad is amazing. You won't be disappointed. Food is consistently delicious.

We like to just go sit at the Sushi bar when its just the two of us. We always sit in front of Ramil who is a SuChef. He is the best. They even have a roll named after him and if you like something that is not raw and a little on the sweet side then you need to... More

Went out with the wife to this restaurant and had a great time. The seating is open to multiple parties, unless you go with a large group, but the Chef makes the show/experience even no matter who you sit with. The food was very good and the presentation is entertaining and enjoyable. Cost was very reasonable for what you get,... More
