Nakamata Reviews

Nakamata Google Average Rating



A good Japanese restaurant specializes in fishes. They serve excellent fish dishes and sake from their own brewery. Couldn’t ask for more. Staff doesn’t really speak English but are very friendly and helpful. Good value by Ginza standard.


A great way to try nodoguro. We were accompanied by a local friend, so can't comment on how accessible it would be for English speakers. The lunch set was great value, approx 6k yen pp for a set course of nodoguro in various preperstions. Our waitress was fantastic too.

The setting is nice, with each table separated by curtains, providing privacy.


It was okay but a but under expectation
