The food was fie but the service was extremely rushed. We were still eating our main course when the brought the bill, didn't ask if we even wanted dessert . It was eat and get out. The only good thing I can say is that they were very careful about a seafood allergy and cooked all the seafood after .

This was a great meal and they are very cautious to gluten free people, they cooked my food in the back which was fine cause with the people I was with I still got to see the show of food being cooked in front of me, a little smokey but food was great!

We arrived around 5:45 on a Wednesday. No wait which was great. Unfortunately from the time we got there, we were rushed. Started clearing the table before we had finished. Food just okay. Not worth the $100+

We love Habachi cooked food and the Japanese do it with finese. We were seated with a family with a little girl who was afraid of the fire, so our server did not do a lot of tricks that they are famous for. The food was very good. As soon as a table area -- sitting about 12 people --... More

Visited here because it was the closest to our condo. The food was delicious! Not too much garlic. My steak and shrimp was cooked to perfection. The noodles were to die for. The chef albeit not asian was quite a good chef. The ginger dressing was great! Will be going back! Good show!

The food was very good. Our server was very nice and our chef was from Mexico City? But he was very good. Very entertaining. The only complaint was the bathroom was gross. There was toilet paper all over the floor and the toilets looked liked they weren't cleaned all day or night. That is something that should be checked hourly.... More

We were in Myrtle Beach for vacation & chose Nakato because we love their restaurant in our hometown. This location did not disappoint! The food was excellent. We had the hibachi chicken & steak as well as some sushi. Our chef was entertaining & everything was cooked well. Probably the biggest plus for us was that the prices were lower... More
