Yummy! Former Toyko Citizens Give Thumbs Up!

Curry udon, Curry Katsu, gyoza, GIANT noodle bowls--it was all excellent. The service was quite slow on a Saturday night, but we weren't in a rush. If you have the time, the meat is fresh and the Katsu crisp.

My family has been coming here for years, we live about 60 miles away. If we head to the Provo/Orem area we eat here. My Japanese mother and my half Mexican grandson (he's been eating here since he started on solid food 5 years ago) and every one in between love the food. Great prices and a staff that knows...

I always get the same thing. It's amazingly spicy but sooooooo good. I'm not sure if I spelled it right in the title but I'm obsessed. Have never been disappointed with it, also love the green tea ice cream at the end of the meal.

Food was good, but the service and the bad attitude of the waitres takes the good away from the food. We asked for water they brough water and no glasses, they expected us all to drink from the sane bottle. Tha face of the waitress was just so bad, bad faces if you asked for something. Just a TERRIBLE service!!!!!... More

I particularly enjoy eating the Udon. It is large enough for a hungry appetite, and even to share if you are a smaller eater. Sushi, katsudon, other delicious dishes.

My wife and I wanted to try something new and we had heard good things about yamato so we decided to give it a try. Overall, we weren't that impressed. The food itself was okay but the service was struggling. It took probably 5-7 minutes before someone came over to get a drink order from us. After ordering drinks and... More

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.
