    The 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.

    One of the best places ive ever been too by far. I loved the food and the cocktails were very very good. I will most certainly come back for the same experience an enjoy a amazing evening.

    Great menu- something for everyone! Tons of sushi options & even more entrees. Great cocktail menu. Mango mojito was delicious. Hibachi was delicious- huge amount of food! Enough to share!

    Food was good. Service was great. Place stays pretty busy on Saturday night. Get a window seat and you can watch the wildlife on the street :)

    the bartenders job looks excruciatingly difficult when she's on her phone the entire time. I'm freezing & want to leave. Great sushi tho, hello take out!

    Go to Nakama between 5 & 7 weekdays, the earlier the better. Have a feast of half-price appetizers. Take care to ask which are included in the happy-hour special. Read more

    Overpriced, mediocre sushi & hibachi. Go up the street to Little Tokyo for better food at a lower price. If you want to meet a douchebag, by all means stay at Nakama.
