Go for lunch

I love the food at Yamatos, however if you go after 2 the price doubles & you get the same food. I only go here for lunch with the prices under $10. They have great sushi deals as well. They still cook in front of you at lunch, just without the extra cost.

I have had only one time that the shrimp was overcooked and I was given a whole new order. I love the sushi. The place is clean and the wait staff are right there always helpful the chef was a delight. Would say if you go at lunch it is not as costly. Recommend this restaurant to anyone who love... More

This was probably the worst Japanese hibachi style food I've had in years. the cook was good and entertaining. I was worried when almost everyone got filets and they laid them out on the grill. They all were brown and not fresh looking at all. from the rice, veg and steak, nothing had good flavor. I'm not going back.

I've been here many times with my family....the food is always delicious and the cocktails are superb!!! The chefs that cook at the table are extremely talented and do a wonderful job preparing your meal. A little pricy, so we save this place for special occasions!!!

The service was quick on a Wednesday night. The sushi was average in taste and freshness, though the temperature was just right. A second trip is in order In hopes that the Seafood will shine above the sauces next time.

I was skeptical about good sushi in Martinsville, but this place "rocks". Sushi and service better than I've had in both Cleveland and Pittsburgh. If you like sushi, you must eat here!!

While I am always leery of ordering sushi outside a major city, there offerings were solid. The more elabrate rolls an offerings left a little to be desired. If you want sushi or hibachi, however, there is little other choice in town.

This has been a life saving place for me! It's the only decent sushi place within an hour from me (I live in Stuart, VA). Great sushi, fresh fish and service is always great! We visit at least once a month. Nice surprise in rural virginia!

The prices are really good but not at the sacrifice of quality. Really good sushi. They are allergy friendly too!

Though I have eaten here for teppenyaki, I do here for sushi. We sit in the sushi bar area and generally have a very nice experience. This is comfortable, approachable sushi, limited nigri menu. Emphasis on rolls. Limited wine menu. And yet fun
