Great Gyoza

Yamato has great hibachi, bento boxes, sushi rolls, but the gyoza was one of the best I've ever had. I have been to Japan and the gyoza at Yamato is as good as I've had in Japan.

I love this little restaurant. I come here every couple of weeks for their hibachi chicken & crab rangoons. The portions are huge & their yum yum sauce is some of the best I've ever had. I've only had their cream cheese sushi roll, but it was amazing. Prompt friendly service, food comes out fast & the prices are WAY... More

My husband and I got to go here as a anniversary/birthday treat. We were real impressed with the food and the serving size. We had no idea what to expect but we are sure to go back soon. Was pretty special for us.

Tempura items were great. Veggies were nicely cooked and had a bit crunch, not mushy. The white and fried rice were both good and the white sauce they brought for the white rice was very tasty, it is good on anything. The cooks used too much soy sauce for my taste. The restaurant is on the end of a little... More

In a small town with very few options This little gem is a welcome change. The menu consists of your typical hibachi style restaurant however without the showmanship. The food, for the money, is actually quite good. You can get a quite filling dinner for $10. Their sushi is passable for ok sushi but no where near as good as... More

A relatively decent place in a small town like Manchester. Food tastes good but not great - we tried a few Rolls and also Sushi. If you travel to Manchester and want to have Japanese Food - I recommend it. Don't expect the moon though.

I have never been to a Japanese resteraunt so this was a pleasant surprise. I didn't try sushi but did try a couple of other items and found them to be very good.

Probably as good as you will find in the area. I was surprised with the limited menu, and the mixing of Chinese with Japenese.

We enjoy their fresh food offerings of traditional Japanese entree choices. They have locations in Decherd, Tullahoma, and Shelbyville.

Since we are a small town this is great for a Japanese fix. The food is yummy and the portions are really good, you could even share the dinner size. They don't make the food at your table but you can stand right in the window & watch them prepare it just like in the big Japanese restaurants. If you... More
