Nakato Japanese Restaurant

Staff Pick

There are few Japanese restaurants in Atlanta that offer various styles of the cuisine under one roof, but NAKATO JAPANESE RESTAURANT fits the bill. Home-style dishes such as onigiri (a rice cake stuffed with plum paste and wrapped in nori), grilled prawns topped with uni, and shabu-shabu (a tabletop hot pot where you cook meat and vegetables in boiling water) demonstrate how simple cooking can be completely satisfying. A separate teppanyaki dining area (better known as “Japanese steakhouse”-style metal-griddle cooking) is great when you have the kids in tow. The sushi bar sources quality fish to munch on with a frosty glass of sake from its extensive list.
