Best

Love the food! The best food I've had in a long time. The service was a little slow. But I didn't mind.

Worst

I totally agree with every reviews on here that talk about the terrible service and rude awful manager. I've eaten at nakama a few times. It's either hit or miss. My time there is...

If you're into the whole hibachi thing and the whole doing copious amounts of sake bombs thing, Nakama can definitely be fun more

Nikki was our waitress. She worked so hard all night, not only for us, but for everyone in our section. Did a wonderful job for us considering we needed a new drink every five minutes! She consistently asks if everyone is happy, which makes the dinner so much easier to enjoy. Our chef was wonderful and cooked everything to perfection, along with asking the specifics when it came to little things we enjoyed about the meal. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/3/2013

I've had pretty good sushi in the NY / NJ area and this would definitely be a place we'd go on the regular, so for the people of Pittsburgh PA, you guys deff have good sushi in town. Not only was the sushi good, but a great selection of beers, and a cool sports bar feel. Really hip, not something I expected in Pitt, very NYC like. more

I love sushi. So much. I recently moved from Boston, eating awesome sushi once a week, to middle of nowhere PA...with no sushi. When we stayed in the city for a night, we were ready for any sushi we could find. We really enjoyed the sushi at Nakama. more

terrible horrible service 9/11/2011

I totally agree with every reviews on here that talk about the terrible service and rude awful manager. I've eaten at nakama a few times. It's either hit or miss. My time there is either great with no problems or a horrible experience. The times I've had problems the manager has not lifted a finger to make anything better, grudgingly taken bad food away rolling his eyes, asked me what I wanted him to do about my rock hard rice .... He's a rude bastard and I have NO idea how he got the job as the manager. more

Lots of Hotties 7/6/2011

Great food and a Lot of Hotties at happy hour. I get lots of phone numbers, because I am really good looking. Once a gril names Tammy , told me I looked like a movies star. She is right. more
