“Japanese enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I've eaten in both the Nagaoka close to the WTC and the one further South on Insurgentes, most times with first or second (nisei)-generation Japanese. They swear it's the best for the buck (or peso) in Mexico City. Had none of the problems with reservations (went at 4:30 on a Sunday) or sushi/sashimi mix-ups from other reviewers. Like any restaurant on Sunday, go at hours NOT usual for the crowds. They staff seemed well-versed on the food and drink, so not much to criticise. I had a cold Ozeki sake, gyoza, ocha, shabu shabu, green-tea ice cream...all quite decent at a reasonable price. The WTC one is a bit more traditional decor, while the Insurgentes one is modern. I guess if you're more demanding (underbelly of bluefin?), you probably have enough money to to to Japan...otherwise, be content we even have places like this and can broaden our palates...I remember when there weren't...

“Very good Sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

This is a simple, traditional Japanese restaurant but the food is good quality and it is definitely worth a visit.

“Authentic Japanese food - fantastic sashimi salmon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

This restaurant has long been a family favourite. The quality of the food is superb, the service was fast and the restaurant itself is quite pleasant. The only thing that I didn't love was the sushi (too much rice!) But other than that, would definitely recommend.

“Best Japanese food in Mexico City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

Nagaoka san, thank you for an awesome experience.
Agedashi is simply the best one.
TekkaDon and Chirashi sushi should be immortalized.
thank you for adding the extra parking space.

“absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

IF you love japanese food - more specifically Udon, then this is the place you want to go.
I love Benkay's Sashimi and Fuji's Teppanyaki but Nagaoka is the best when it comes to Udons.
