Made reservations for 8:00 p.m and didn't get seated till 8:45p.m. Upon being seated there was underage drinking in front of the cook who was edging it on for more who was also taking shots. When the food was finished we had a small portion of rice and also a small portion of chicken and which the total of two people was. $45.00. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Which was a horrible experience and will never go back!!

We live in north myrtle beach through the summer and absolutely love this restaurant. It's really hard to find good Hibachi food and this is it. We don't eat sushi but have heard wonderful things. I have 6 kids so finding a kid friendly place is a a plus and this is our favorite place down here. We have called an hour before arrival for reservations and gotten them with no problem. Walk in and within minutes we are seated. Staff there is great. Definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a good fun dinner!!!

My family had 6:30 reservations. We were seated around 7:15. The restaurant was sweltering. Everyone including our server was miserable. some kid actually threw up he was so hot. Our chef had no personality. This was the worse japanese restaurant ever. The food was disgusting. My aunt spoke to the manager 4 times. She asked for the owners name and number and the manager gave the. number to the restaurant and was very rude. I couldn't eat my food It was disgusting I sent it back. Don't go there.

We are locals and have tried other most of the other Japanese places. Nakato's is by far the best---they only use chicken breast, you get noodles and rice and can ask for changes in food.....broccoli and squash only, no egg in the rice, etc. We have always had good service, large servings of food and polite, helpful servers and cooks. Take a chance, pass Miyabi's and give Nakoto's a try. The early bird is a great value and they also have a senior menu.

I have never been to a restaurant where the hostess has absolutely no idea how to seat people! There is no need to make reservations because if you do, you will still end up waiting quite a while. They just seat people basically based on how much they complain, rather than seating people with reservations first. We waited for a while as we watched the hostess seat people who didn't have reservations and people who were complaining before us. They basically just have to clue how to seat people and Nakato obviously needs to figure out the correct order you are suppose to seat people in or they will continue to lose business! The worst part of it all was that once we actually got to sit down, we were put at a crowded table with horrible service while we watched the table in front of us get seated maybe five minutes after us and those people walked in about 45 minutes after us.

I've been coming here since I moved to Myrtle Beach 4 years ago. I've watched the steady decline in service and quality. There must of been a management change or something because I refuse to walk into this place ever again. With Miyabi's a few places down, I will not be inconvenienced in the least. To be more specific, our last visit left us at a table of 6, not full by any mean's. It took us 10 minutes after placing our order to receive the drinks. And then another 10 for just the soup. From sit down to soup, 20 minutes elapsed. After leaving the table to just have sushi at the bar, the waitress made a little scene and proceeded to ask the rest of the table if they were "happy". Instead of correcting the issue, she decided to take the ridicule route. Amanda should of been fired on the spot. But alas, being the managers sister, I knew nothing would happen. The sushi bar is nice, the bartenders friendly, but everything else just sucks. I feel the manager could of done more to correct the situation. But just avoided us as she passed back and forth. I found this odd considering she usually speaks to us to see how everything is. The waitress even came into the bar and stared us down as we ate our sushi. It was very creepy. As a local, working at a high traffic retail establishment; Nakato's will soon be out of business simply because I will inform every curious tourist that Nakato's is the last Japanese steak house they want to try. Word of mouth kills.

It was my son's birthday, we had 12 in our party which included two 8 yr olds, a 2 yr. old and an eight month old. We were totally unaware until they had us seated that we would be divided and have two separate chefs. The did come out and tell us and we thought no big deal we can still enjoy each other. Wrong, it was a very stressful. My husband the two year old and I were seated on the other side and I ordered two appetizers with a nice wine. As our chef was serving everyone else pasta Our two year old grandson was holding his plate up to the chef asking him for some too and the chef served everyone on the right except our grandson.He then turned around and dumped the pasta in the trash. What a disappointed little boy. My husband immediately shared some of his pasta with him. What my grandson learned from a grown up that night tells me a great deal about management/ownership. They may as well have slapped my face and I am still spitting mad. Our family has celebrated birthdays at Nakato's for 30 years. It was our last...we have all decided this was poor rude service and we will not return again. Food not that great and the odor permeates everything. PF Chang's service and food are superior and first class.

We simply love going to Nakato's. We're local, and it is by far the best Japanese Steakhouse in town, and one of the best overall restaurants. The food is awesome, and you will almost always be taking leftovers home. Service is great, and we highly recommend you check it out.

We are from about 45 minutes from MB, so I guess we could be called semi-locals. We go to MB many times over the course of a year, and usually eat at a Japanese steakhouse. The customer service at Nakato's sucks. The last time we were there, they had changed the times for the early bird special, but the menus did not reflect this change. When we ordered the specials, our waiter took our order, and then returned several minutes to "advise" us of the change. We spoke to the manager to no avail. Long story short---we won't be back.

The food was absolutely wonderful. The prices were very reasonable. The bartenders did a great job in helping us decide on what type of Sushi to get. BTW, the Myrtle Beach rolls are to die for. The chef didn't put on as much of a show as some, but he was friendly and nice. We ate here on our last night in MB and it was a wonderful way to end a great vacation.

07/14/2010 I have probably been to at least 10 different Japanese restaurants. This was the best Japanese restaurant we have ever been too. The food and service was great. I ordered steak and shrimp. It came with rice, noodles and vegetables. It was so good. The chef was awesome. He had the best sense of humor. He did all the tricks and joked with the group. We laughed all night. We took two people that had never been and it was a great experience. We even took a picture of the chef with our group. This will be great memories!

Chef was terrible. Did not provide a show for the kids. The only part of show that he tried is where he could not make a vacano versus the other chefs. Never refilled our shrimp sauce. Had an attitude with making the extra fried rice ordered. Compared to other Japanese Resturants and other Nakato Resturants, we will never go there again and not recommend that other go there.
