This is the place to go if you don't want to feel rushed and are looking for an excellent dining experience. The food and atmosphere far exceed the more "touristy" spots.

I have to say... 10+ years ago Nakato was awesome and as with anything, the larger they get and the years that have gone by, it seems they've lost their deliciousness. I'm really happy to say that we visited recently and it was GREAT! We had a large group and a wonderful chef and the food was delicious. I couldn't say enough good things about our experience especially since it was a random Friday in January. I wish I could remember what our chef's name was but it was a young guy and we thank him for great food and a very enjoyable evening. Our waitress was equally as wonderful and attentive.

This was the first time we had went to a hibachi style grill. I must say, it was awesome. The chef we had was very entertaining. You could tell he loved his work, and it wasn't merely for a paycheck. I watched the other chefs, and they too seemed to have fun.

Overall a great time and great food. Will definitely go back.

Want to have fun and an exciting delicious meal at the same time, then visit Nakato Japanese Steak House in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. To watch the children that are there and their faces light up with excitment is as they watch the meal being prepared is a really good reason to visit Nakato. But, the best reason is the food. So good and prepared right there before you on the hibachi with all the show that goes along with eating at a Japanese Hibachi steak house. Can't beat the prices either.

We eat at a Japanese Hibachi often at home, so when we go to the beach we wanted to find one we love just as much as our regular Hibachi at home - We found it in Nakato!!!! Wonderful food, wonderful service, & wonderful atmosphere!!!!
