Very good but a bit expensive

It's all about the sushi here and it's very good indeed. It's a case of you pay for what you get, it is expensive. The menu has a fantastic selection to chose from. I'm a fan of this place in general. It's in the hotel Ocura which also has another excellent Teppanyaki restaurant.

I am an Austrian , living in Sweden and travelling a lot through Europe. My wife is Japanese and we travel to Japan every year and enjoy and know good Japanese cuisine in Japan very well. We understand that it is difficult for restaurans in Europe to compete, biut until now this is the best place we found. We are... More

The restaurant "lost" the reservation on my anniversary, a few days later apologised after I quizzed them and offered an aperitif to make up for it.

We came to Yamazato three days after their re-opening andnoted with relief that the refurbishment had not affected the atmosphere nor the generous and warm welcome extended by the staff. Yes, it all looks new and bright, but a "spot the difference" would be hard. Anyway, authentic ambiance is only one part of eating at Yamazato, their food is the... More

About forty of my colleagues and I dined at an organized dinner at Yamazato during a compnay meeting. Even though it was a preset meal every aspect of it was first rate. The sashimi course was superb as was the beef. One of the best "Japanese" meals I have had outside of Japan.

Perhaps I should mention that we have in our area also a Japanese restaurant with one Michelin star. Much smaller and with much less pretentions. That was my reference for choosing Yamazato and now for reviewing it. The dishes were all OK, but never I had the feeling that everything was better then average, what I would have expected in...

This restaurant is being renovated and seating is at Le Camelia, also in Okura Hotel. We ordered à la carte. Although the Japanese waitress told us that it is becoming a great meal, we assured her that it is okay. Well I must say, we indeed ordered a lot, but it was worthwhile. A bit expensive, but we knew that... More

This is a restaurant for connoisseurs of Japanese food. Don’t go if you want great big chunks of meat or lashings of fries. Do go, if you appreciate flavours, the art of the chef and the uniqueness of the menu. We went early on New Year’s Eve and this meal is up-there with some of the best I’ve ever had.... More
