“Not as great as they say...”
Reviewed November 12, 2013 via mobile

Went here with some colleagues after hearing good things. I had the Spicy California roll and the Philadelphia roll. The fish in one was really sinewy and I couldn't even get it chewed up. I about gagged before finally spitting it out. I think everyone else enjoyed their meals though. Server was busy on her phone though rather than keeping our needs met. Don't think I'll be going back.

“Best habachi around !”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

We went here for my boyfriend's 40th birthday and we absolutely loved it. The waitress and cook were very nice and helpful. The food was very good. And for his birthday they brought out a huge sparkler in a dish of ice cream and a huge gong to hit. All in all it was expensive but well worth it.

“Amazing.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Love Nakama so much. Everyone is friendly and personable. Best Sushi in Pittsburgh hands down. Great specials on Monday-Wednesday and ask for Luke - he's the best chef ever.

“Great Japanese.”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

This is the place to go to if you want sushi or Japanese. Don't be surprised if you see your favorite Pittsburgh athlete chewing down here. Keep your eyes open.
