The inside and outside are pretty run down, old or dumpy... take your pick. The food was ok, but the orange/yumyum sauce is a deal breaker. I wasn't good.

Aligatou was recommended to me by a number of people I work with. The food was fairly good but it took a long time between food items, if we had waited until we had everything we ordered it would have been cold. Another couple was at our table and the lady kept telling the chef how to cook her food... More

This place looks old from the outside and isn't exactly new on the inside, but it's clean and the service is good. The steak is good, the sushi rolls are good and the staff is nice. It's just good food in a comfortable atmosphere.

If you like Japanese steak houses you will be disappointed. Soup not hot, salad drowning in dressing. Rice salty and greasy. Veggies overcooked. Chicken overcooked and had hints of freezer or microwave burn flavor, also swimming in butter. Left most on the plate.

I opted for the ginger dressing and it was a disappointment. I've had ginger dressing many many times in many different restaurants this was my first experience where I could not even taste a hint of ginger. The dressing looked like some kind of clear vinegarette. Every previous time that I've had ginger dressing there has always had grated ginger... More

I read the other reviews and thought I was in the wrong place. I travel a lot and when I am on the road, I like to eat at sushi. This one by far was one of the worst. The portions were small for what I paid and the quality of the sushi was mediocre at best. It just didn't... More

Well honestly this isn't the best restaurant I've ever been so far, but that doesn't mean I dislike this restaurant, they had perfect food there! My whole family went here and it was great and we all enjoyed it!

We ate here a few years back and were impressed. The place was crowded and we sat next to strangers as the chef did his show. This time we decided to get regular seating. We read the reviews and didn't recognize what was being written from our past experience and decided to go there anyway. Well, it wasn't crowded. 2... More

I don't necessarily think of Valdosta, Georgia as a hotbed of culinary delights, but there are surprises here at each and every I-75 exit. Aligatou has been around for several years, and we stop in once or twice a year when we travel to Florida. There are several tables with grills and hoods, but the same menu items that most... More
