Took our son to a nice dinner for getting good grades. This is our favorite place. Chef was one of the best we have had. Very good food and a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Best show in town, every time I go there I leave with too much eaten, and a to go box as well, totally worth the wait, and the cost.

Really enjoyed eating here. We sat at the Sushi Bar to avoid the hour long wait for a table as the place was packed. He service was good and the sushi was excellent. The Hope roll is awesome! Everything was really good and very reasonably priced. This is definitely a place to go if you are craving Sushi in Soringfield!

We're from the area, and eat here about once a month. The food is always delicious; your regular hibachi style, but excellent sushi. The service is often good because the meal price is usually high, so the tips are good for them. However, our service tonight was anything but good. I realize it is Friday night, but we ordered sushi... More

The WORST experience in a restaurant that I have ever had the displeasure of experiencing at the Springfield, MO branch. After being informed of a 30minute wait (which was actually more around 40-50minutes) the manager was being very rude to both me and the customers that were asking him simple questions while the sweaty and out of breath man fumbled...

We had hibachi chicken and the steak and shrimp... Came with soup and salad.. Both were pretty good..Chicken was average I've had much better... Steak and shrimp were good... The cook was semi entertaining... Gotta remember it's Missouri... Not a place to relax and enjoy the meal... Seems like their main concern is get you in... And get you out... More

This is one of the best price combos other than making it yourself I have found. While making it yourself is cheaper the level of service is superior. The Sushi chef's are amazing and I cant get my roll's to taste near the quality. I often impressed with the waitresses and waiters. One spicy tuna roll and one hope roll... More

We just stopped here for sushi during one leg of our move from Montgomery, AL to Las Vegas. We chose Nakato based on reviews (and the fact that two of the other popular sushi places are closed on Sunday). It was a great stop, especially after a disappointing dinner in Arkansas last night. I enjoy eating local on our road... More

The food there is delicious and they cook right infront of you. The chefs put on a show and include the audience (customers) in many different ways. They give you a bunch of side dishes before even receiving your meal which all all delicious. The sauces are amazing. You can dip almost anything in the seafood sauce. It is a... More
