Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar

Due to the global Cornavirus outbreak, Nakato Restaurant (University location) will cease all dine-in operations. We will continue to serve carryout meals from our location and offer delivery service through our third party partners, Ubereats and Postmates.

Please call 704-543-8899 to place a carryout order and we can have your order available for curbside pickup if paying with a credit card. Check our website and Google listing for our updated hours.

We have adjusted our business hours for the time being. We will be closing early but will remain open throughout the day.

We are sorry for the inconvenience, but we feel that we need to make our best effort in helping control the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our dining room will be closed for the next several weeks, and we will then evaluate the severity of the situation to determine the next course of action.

We greatly appreciate your patronage and wish everyone the best of luck in these trying times.
