In 2003, Nakama Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar made its appearance in Pittsburgh's trendy South Side. Savor the incredible creations
with limitless options provided by our sushi chef, which are almost too beautiful to eat. Almost.
Nakama is a hip, trendy scene where patrons can enjoy the knife-wielding skill and showmanship of our specially trained chefs, our unique appetizers and the best sushi in Pittsburgh. Our guests will be rewarded with frequent dining points upon joining our free VIP program.
The private party room is available for private functions and large group dining. …
This was an adventure...outstanding service...excellent location. The Sushi was outstanding (very fresh). The service is ths best. My server Laurel W. was excellent.
Must go. Love the food! The best food I've had in a long time. The service was a little slow. But I didn't mind.
Great Place!. I love everything about this place from the atmosphere to the delicious food! There is nothing else like it in the burgh!
terrible horrible service. 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.
Lots of Hotties.
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.
5 Stars!. We come here all the time after events downtown and it is great all the time. The sushi is really good!
Great place to eat if you want to be treated like crap. The manager is an ass hole and the waitstaff are too busy talking to the hipsters to care about getting your food to you. This is like a little wanna be Hollywood inside of Pittsburgh. The food is OK but plan on being bumped into all night by gel haired pretty boys trying to impress the skanks that frequent the place. When you ask for anything other than your order the waitresses sigh. That's OK! That was the second time in my life I ate a ton of food and left a big fat 0 for a tip. I told the manager that I wasn't happy with our waitress and he walked away and said "you're just a drop in the bucket". Really classy
HORRIBLE Night @ Nakama.
There are too many GOOD restaurants in Pittsburgh to even think about going to Nakama. Don't waste your money, or your time! RUDE employees including the Manager.
We made reservations 6 weeks out, and after waiting over 1 hour for our table, the manager's response was ... “Do you want me to walk you through the restaurant and show you that the tables are all full?” We were seated within 15 minutes of that encounter.
The chef served chicken to two people in our party, although three had ordered chicken. When we brought this to his attention, he took some of the chicken off of the plates of those that he had served, and put the chicken on to the third member’s plate. Not only had he forgotten her order, it was completely unsanitary to remove food from one person's plate and serve it to someone else.
My advice -- GO ANYWHERE ELSE!!
Don't bother to waste your money or time!. If you want to waste your money & time on really horrible sushi, then go to Nakama. This restaurant should do themselves a favour & take out the sushi bar completely, add another liquor bar & call it a day. Tuna from a can on a slice of cucumber does not make sushi! Does anyone in this town really know how to prepare fresh, real sushi?
