As hibachi style places go, Nakato is a decent choice. I'm not going to give them a glowing review, but I'm not going to tarnish their image either. We have actually dined here 2-3 times, but this latest time was on Valentine's Day. When we arrived we were promptly seated at a almost-full hibachi table (which is great, because I... More

Nakato is a 3rd generation authentic Japanese restaurant with a long history or quality but they have amped it up lately. You can eat hibachi on one side of the restaurant but we ate the menu from the fine dining side of the restaurant. One of the chefs said they have just gotten back from a restaurant tour of Japan...

Worst Japenese Rest I ever visited, no tables available at Hibachi Grills, food was cold, service was slow, salad and soup were not good. Nakato at Myrtle Beach has always been good but not this place.

For my birthday, my father treated me to dinner at Nakato. This was my first visit after many years. . . and it was just as delicious as I remembered. Nakato offers full-service dining, a sushi bar, hibachi and traditional dining options along with a small bar. On this particular evening, the restaurant seemed fairly busy, especially the hibachi section.... More

We had great food and service. We loved our chef he was fun and kept us laughing. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that the Manager was trying to rush us out before we had even finished our food. We were a party of 14 and we were seated for less than an hour. Just... More

We went there to celebrate a birthday. We were the only customers in the restaurant (there were a few in the hibachi section.) We were seated immediately, of course, and service was excellent. The shrimp tempura was good. But the "Kaki Rockefeller" was awful. The oysters were raw and not very fresh (and oysters are not raw in oysters Rockefeller,... More

A few months ago I went with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. We made a reservation and after about an hour of waiting for a table the hostess shared it will be at least another 30 minutes.
