“Consistent...good food...but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

The food is consistently good here. The hibachi show is the same as most places, and it is also consistent. BUT...the only thing I don't like is that they try to shuffle you out of there as soon as possible to make room for the "next' table of 10. I always feel rushed to either finish my plate or put it in a to-go box. I'm halfway through with my plate and the check and a box is delivered to me. If you want to relax and enjoy a meal...probably not the place for you.

“Family Style Dining ONLY”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

There is only seating at the hibachi grills, so no sitting with just your date. My husband and I were seated with two couples and their kids and this did not make for the best dining experience as the kids were playing Angry Birds and the couples didn't really have anything but complaints. We would have preferred sitting at a regular table, just the two of us, but this is not an option at Yamato. Also, the food was just ok and the sodium level was through the roof!

Met a former class mate when driving through the state and he suggested this restaurant. A local recomends is a good sign. Hibachi chef was fun and skillfull, food was great. Not the cheepest but not too bad.

“Pleasant Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

This hibachi style resturant served good Japanese food with pizzazz. It was an enjoyable occasion for the children.
