Good food

The food was very good and fresh. The service is better if your table is not crowded. A little expensive.

We have eaten at many hibachi restaurants over the past 30 years. This one rates as one of only a few TERRIBLE places to eat. We were the only ones seated at the hibachi table. The order was placed but the waitress never asked how I wanted my steak cooked. The "soup" was nothing more than boxed beef broth with... More

Love this place!! In Lima about once a week for Business. Always stop if hungry. Nice place, nice people, clean and friendly. Love the signature rolls, can't go wrong with any of them. My fav's are the "Jalapeno Bomber" or "Red Dragon".....if just want a "light" lunch, I get the "Wasabi Mayo Salmon" appetizer......YUMMO!!

Stopped here for supper since it was close to the Holiday Inn and was not impressed. The food was cold by the time it was brought to the table and the staff seemed like they could really care less.

When I'm in Lima, this is my favorite restaurant to visit. I recommend the sushi and they have good drink specials.

We visited Yamato for Hibachi-style dining. Started with sushi which was very good. Then the Hibachi chef showed up, tried to do a lot of tricks and stunts with his utensils, cooking oils, and food, and served almost everyone a full plate of food ... except for 2 of the 7 family members present. Moreover, he mixed up everyone's orders.... More

Stopped at Yamato for dinner a few nights ago. Ordered the Bento Box. Having visited Japan last year, I guess our expectations were too high. The Bento wasn't really bad, just not much like the authentic Japanese we were hoping for. Maybe our opinion was influenced by the COUNTRY MUSIC playing overhead. Really?? How about some soothing Japanese music, music... More

Ordered the Salt and Pepper Calamari and was disappointed. Appetizer was over cooked and tough. As well, the beef broth soup coupled with a side salade nothing special. Although the susi made up for it. Recommend the Spicy Tuna and Spicy Salmon speciality roll. Has bit of of a kick if you're into spicy food. Also, speciality rolls have 8-10... More

Took my wife here for our anniversary. The staff was very pleasant and we were seated quickly. we chose to be seated at a table rather than the hibachi grill (not fond of sitting at a grill to eat with a lot of strangers) Waiter took our order and was very polite and did not check on how we were...
