When nothing else will do but teriyaki and hibachi goodness on the double, you cannot go wrong with a trip to Nagano Japanese Grill. Set in the heart of Sevierville, this popular eatery makes quick work of all the chicken, steak, and shrimp favorites you could ever want. On top of that, their dishes come in large portions and at a reasonable price, allowing you to fuel up for more fun while staying on budget.
Although you’re welcome to call for takeout whenever you’re in a hurry, dining in-house is definitely where it’s at. With that move, you get to watch as the chefs work hard in the kitchen to bring your meal to life. To get started, simply walk up to the front counter and put in your order. After that, just grab a seat at one of their tables and direct your gaze to the kitchen beyond.
Day in and day out, the chefs pour over each meal by using the teppanyaki grill to prepare the meat and veggies. They expertly cook the chicken, steak, shrimp, scallops, and other proteins until perfectly prepared. Then, they add the fresh broccoli and carrots – or onions and zucchini – to the mix at just the right moment. Once all that’s done, it lands on the plate alongside a hearty scoop of fried rice to complete your meal. Prefer soba noodles? Just ask to sub out the rice for noodles for an additional charge.
If you’re taking your meal to go, it’ll land on the front counter in a convenient takeout box. Otherwise, your server will bring out your plate plus utensils wrapped in a napkin. You’re welcome to kick back and relax for as long as you need to enjoy your meal to the fullest. If you cannot finish the huge portions, just ask for a takeout box for the remainder and enjoy it later.
Their top options include:
Teriyaki Shrimp Plate
For a seafood experience to remember, try the Teriyaki Shrimp Plate. They make this dish by sauteing shrimp, broccoli, and carrots on the teppanyaki grill until perfectly cooked. Then, the shrimp and veggies get doused in teriyaki sauce before hitting the plate alongside a scoop of fried rice.
Hibachi Steak Plate
When you just want to enjoy beefy deliciousness in every bite, the Hibachi Steak Plate is definitely calling your name. This dish starts with a nice cut of steak, chopped into cubes, marinated in soy sauce, and grilled to perfection. After that, they sauté mushrooms and carrots in soy sauce before plating it all up with fried rice on the side.
A regular daily special, the Scallop Plate lets you savor luscious scallops grilled just right. The chefs carefully prepare the scallops so they’re golden brown on the outside and tender inside. Once that’s done, it all gets plated with veggies and rice plus whatever sauce you prefer.
When you simply cannot decide between all their amazing options, just select one of their combination plates. Each plate comes with a mix of proteins, ranging from steak and chicken to shrimp and chicken. If you want to enjoy all three proteins, go with the Steak, Chicken, and Shrimp, for sure. Alternatively, you can get a regular plate with your protein of choice, and then add additional meats as a side.
