I have been eating sushi here for years. Myself and my sons are always searching for different sushi places when we travel. We have been to some awsome sushi places. Point being. This is one of the best here in Utah.

This restaurant isn't much to look at from the outside, but don't let that dissuade you from going. The food is great, and the interior is very nice, especially the areas with the traditional Japanese seating--not quite as nice as some I've visited in San Francisco and Seattle where the architecture is traditional Japanese with lacquered wood, etc., but for...

We were driving from Salt Lake City to Grand Junction when we decided to visit the BYU campus. We came across the sign Yamato along one of the streets and decided to check it out. The restaurant was nothing special from the outside but we were surprised and delighted with the warm greeting we had.... with the ambiance... with the... More

Quiet intimate environment but food was in the "very good" category. Portions were large so you'll probably be bringing some home. Not a location for tepanyaki style cooking. Can't comment on sushi since we didn't order.

Amazing service. The sushi was great (try the Fire Roll). Katsu Curry was really good . Loved this place and loved the prices too. Would have been 50% more in California.

Really good Japanese food. even though I haven't eaten at very many Japanese restaurants, this one is of the best that I've tried so far.

For Utah, Yamato's is the best Japanese food there is to offer. Sure you got some buffets for sushi, but that sushi isn't always the best quality. What gets me the most is the atmosphere. Now that I've visited Japan, I can say their restaurant brings authentic. Great owners and sushi staff. Highly recommended.

I don't even typically like Japanese food, but this place has won me over. The staff are always very pleasant and the food is extremely tasty. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

On a recent visit to Orem for shopping, we went back to Yamato to eat. It is consistently good. I don't eat sushi much, but I often order Katsu Currry or Ebi Tempura and both are excellent. My husband lived in Japan and he loves it too. The only downside is occasionally they are a little shorthanded if it gets... More
