Here at Nakato Japanese Steakhouse with our sushi bar in Charlotte and our sushi bar in Springfield, you can bet that we too are always on a quest to create perfect sushi for our guests. You may not think of Springfield as much of a sushi city, but in fact, there are plenty of sushi lovers in this area who are very discriminating about their sushi. These sushi connoisseurs know that any Japanese restaurant that stakes its reputation on its sushi bar better deliver on quality, or suffer the consequences.

This time-honored desire to make the very best sushi is deeply embedded into the heart of each Nakato sushi chef. Our chefs are well aware that Nakato is not the only sushi bar out there. Therefore, in order to earn a reputation as being one of the best sushi bars in town, we’ve got to deliver great quality every single day. That’s no small feat. However, our Nakato sushi chefs understand that they must perform to a higher standard than everyone else in order to impress our loyal sushi fans.

A real sushi chef takes great pride in his work and goes to great lengths to ensure that each piece that lands on a plate is worthy of its place.

They understand that when you come into our reindex-150x150staurant and go to the sushi bar you’re expecting a plateful of delicately arranged fresh fish married with rice, and a variety of intriguing flavors.
