Family dinner

Just had an amazing dining experience! The food was excellent, huge portions & the early bird meals were a great value. Our chef was very entertaining and interacted with all of us. Highly recommend for the whole family.

This is a great Japanese Steakhouse! We never miss this restaurant when at the beach. Aside from the entertaining chefs, the food is delicious. We got twice as much food as we have gotten at other Japanese steakhouses. The shrimp, soup, salad, rice, noodles and vegetables are included in most of the entrees. They also have sushi and a variety... More

My fiancé and I were wanting some hibachi before leaving the beach and this place was perfect! They don't open until 3:30, but you get a good early bird special with it. Would go again!!

Had dinner while in Myrtle. The food was very good, cooked to perfection and very flavorful. The portios were more than we could eat. Everyone at the table left with a container of food.

Depending on your chef, you get a good show. Our chef was very good especially with the kids. The food was good and there was plenty of it. Call ahead to save yourself a long wait.

This is a traditional Japanese steakhouse with hibachi grills at each table. The hibachi chefs were entertaining nod the food plentiful. Here were a few things different from all the other steakhouses we have gone too. First they serve the salad with a choice of dressings rather than just the ginger dressing that is traditional. Second, the combination choices for... More

We was spending some family time with our son before he left to go to bootcamp. He wanted to go to a Japanese Steak House so we went to Natako. We like the show that the cook perform and the server was great. Wonderful time and great food.

We arrived at 4pm and they already had a good crowd, and Miyabi nearby wasn't open yet. The chef was good, but no knife show like some other places. The staff was good with special requests, like extra hot sauce, fried rice with no veggies, etc. Our meal was delicious, hot, plentiful and relatively quickly prepared. We will return.

I got the scallops and they were cooked to perfection! Rice, veggies and soup/salad was delicious! Definitely one of the best hibachi style places I've visited. The service was very attentive.

Great service, terrific food. We will definitely return on our next trip to Myrtle Beach. It's a little pricey for a family meal but the portions are large enough to have a carryout for lunch the next day. Not too unreasonable when you can get 2 meals out of it. This was definitely some of the best Japanese hibachi that... More
