Never been so good

This is a top class Japanese Restaurant, don't miss out to have a dinner made in front of you on a Teppanyaki Grill.

We appreciated very much the quality of the Japanese food. On the other hand we did not like the cold welcome by the German waitress. We had to wait long for her to come and welcome us at the door, which was awkward. She was almost disappointing us to be there. We insisted, set and had a real good meal...

Restaurant Yamato is located inside the luxury hotel Westin near the railway station in Leipzig. They advertised the Teppanyaki dinner in the local newspaper. Because we had some reason for celebration, we decided to try the Chef´s recommendation dinner with 5 courses.The price is not the cheapest I have to admit. But having visited Japan several times, I must say... More

After checking menu and look around Sushi corner, we chose Teppan-yaki because some doubt about freshness of fishes (Just only by location, here is not sea side!!).

We thought we had reserved a table at the top of the Westin – based on the hotel's website – but discovered when we arrived that Yamato was not at the top but on the ground floor, so no view included. (Seems that we weren’t the only ones confused since one of the reviews here from last year of Yamato... More
