Nakama Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar Reviews

Add your review for Nakama Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar.

  • LeisureEater reviewNakama is an interesting habachi restaurant. When you first enter, there's the bar behind the hostess, the sushi bar on your left, and in the dining room the habachi tables. I believe the crowd ranges from young adults to mid forty's. My bf and I come here when we are starving! Average habachi dinner for one, runs about $25-30, depends on what you order. The waitresses I had, were all great. The habachi chefs do what they do and that is to grill or cook. I gave it a 3, because the chefs aren't really entertaining or interactive. I've been to plenty of habachi restaurants and worked in one in the past, and the chefs are usually outgoing and hilariously funny and enjoyable. I've had hot shrimp thrown into my mouth, plastic toys squirting water onto the onion volcano, and just great small talk. The food is great, but the chefs reaction for its guest can be a lot better.

    55555 by Elizabeth J


  • Andra ZapartanThe fillet mignon is heavenly :) try the hibachi if you're not too hungry, it usually takes longer to be taken care of than in the self-seating area.
