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

We have had many delicious sushi meals, but never have we been able to say that each roll was excellent. It is a rare feat to find unique sushi so far inland but Yamatos is worth the effort of getting off the interstate. We may not be through Utah again any time soon, but next time we hit Provo, we...

Yamoto has to be 1 of the best restaurants in Utah valley. The yaki soba is delicious the sushi is good, and the appetizers are delicious.

This was the first time I have gone to sushi in Utah. I was not disappointed. The caterpillar rolls and the Halibut tempura rolls were among the best sushi i have ever tasted. The only disappointing thing about the menu was the lack of spicy tuna rolls. (the fire rolls were a poor substitute.) however the rest of our food... More
