An evening here is always entertaining. Our chef was great and did a great job. I enjoy seeing my food freshly prepared. We had a great variety of food - sushi, beef, chicken, seafood - and all of it was great.

This is by far the best Japanese that we've eaten any where we've been. Love that they have the noodles with every meal and the fact that they serve a spicy yakiniku. Nakatos is usually my favorite meal of the week while here.
