For an entertaining hibachi experience, you must eat at Nagasaki Inn! Sometimes the wait is long, but it's well worth the wait! Hibachi cooking is as fresh as it gets and is usually interesting...but if you get the owner of Nagasaki, you're in for a special, very entertaining meal...and you'll love every bite!

I have always loved the old school atmosphere of this place. It had been awhile since we had come here, but I wanted hibachi and you can usually get a good coupon for this place. The rib eye entree was still wonderful. The soup was great, the salad dressing wasn't my favorite. The fried rice was somewhat disappointing compared to... More

I've passed this restaurant countless times in my 20 years here in Memphis and never gave it a second thought. My friends suggested we go there because it was a favorite of theirs. Now I see why! I felt like I was in Japan again when we entered the restaurant. We sat at one of the hibachi grills and then... More

It took about 6 or 7 mins to cook everything.THEN he cooked his own food in front of us. The sushi was warm but tasted ok. The... More

First off, this restaurant is dirty in not in good repair. This was not just a matter of outdated décor. Upon entering I noticed it was smoky inside. At first I thought it was just my eyes adjusting but after a while I realized that it was indeed smoke from the grills. The other diners noticed this as well. The... More

This hibachi grill has a set of unique flavors. I have eaten at most of the big chain hibachi grills in Memphis and they all pretty much taste the same. Not Nagasaki Inn. From the soup to the salad dressing to the flavor of the meats and rice- all of it was different from any other hibachi. Some of it... More

We arrived and were seated, I told the waitress I what I wanted to drink and got the wrong drinks and walked off. Then we ordered the food, I ordered sushi and the steak and shrimp. NEVER GOT MY SUSHI! I have had better at other places in Memphis. The waitress would drop things off and could never check on... More

I try to eat there about once a month. Was there 2 weeks ago, and I am going again tonight with friends. Long Dong Silver is my cook of choice. He puts on a great show, and is very funny. The food is outstanding, and is better than most Japanese steak housed. You can pay more and have a little... More
