Have been here 2 times now. Great experience both times, though would have to say the first chef we had was more skilled. Sushi was great, and we had a good time. Will defiantly go there again!

Needed a quick meal as take-out. Ordered with friends...can't say how much my share was as I didn't pay. I am also unfamiliar with Japanese food, so I looked at the menu on-line and thought I would try something "safe". I ordered the tempura. Well...if you want a plateful of breading that's rolled in grease, here's the plate to try!... More

Another great food experience at Nakashima. Our server Celya was prompt, attentive to our needs and a lot of fun! For years we have been coming to Nakashima's on Pine street and Downtown Appleton and have never been disappointed. Though they have the best Hibachi service in our area, my wife and I prefer to enjoy our sushi quietly in... More

Went here to celebrate a birthday. This place is packed on weekend nights and they do not take reservations. After they were open a half hour, there was already an hour plus wait. We have been to a handful of Hibachi restaurants and this one was good. The soup was same, salad was just okay, fried rice not worth it,... More

Took a date there for a dinner. What a mistake. The décor is dark and dreary and the walls and ceiling are dirty from all the grease and cooking oils. Ordered the dinner for two and sushi. Tuna roll was made with some kind of ground up poor quality tuna and the dish had little to no flavor. It was... More

You certainly don't leave hungry. We ordered a combo, with fried rice - I don't think anyone was able to finish the food - it's a lot! Tasted great, and the chef was entertaining. You won't be disappointed.

Went there on a Friday night with a party of 8 and the wait was only 15 minutes. The waiter and cook were very good and the food was fantastic.

I love nakashimas! The hibachi is delicious and the sushi is phenomenal. The whole environment is overall fun, friendly, and energetic. Always my go-to.

Some of the best date nights I have with my wife are at Nakashimas. The food is always amazing, the sushi is always great, and the wait staff is always on point. Now if we can just get them to share the recipe to their sauces, this would get six stars.
