Nakato has been serving up some of the best Japanese cuisine in Atlanta since 1972, proving that fine dining can be fun dining. With their extensive selection of traditional hibachi and teppanyaki dishes, Nakato is fit to satisfy your whole party – and all of their cravings. The sushi menu at Nakato is equally impressive, featuring all kinds of rolls and bowls made with the freshest fish and prepared using traditional Japanese techniques.

Nakato was founded by the grandmother of the current owner and operator, Sachi. For the last 46 years, Nakato has been defined by Japanese tradition and culture, offering a variety of dining experiences. Guests can choose hibachi style dining, where the chef cooks in front of you, or traditional dining, where guests are served a full course meal while dining on traditional Japanese mats. With rotating seasonal full course menus, any time of the year is the perfect time to visit Nakato and experience traditional Japanese fine dining.
