For small town iowa I would highly recommend. Cozy, clean, prompt. Portions not huge but filling. Price is right as well.

As our son enjoys Sushi, we thought "why not try a Japanese Restaurant in a Dutch Iowa community". WOW! The service was attentive and efficient. We ordered several rolls, which were served up quickly and were they fresh. I had the Bento box, all good.

Will dine there again when in Pella.

I was beside myself when I found out that Pella was getting a Japanese restaurant since I love sushi; I was trying not to get my hope too high though as I didn't want to be disappointed with a small town venue. Yamato has surpassed not only mine but everyone else's expectations that I've talked to. They have an unbelievable selection of sushi and sashimi and plenty of excellent selections for those who don't really care for sushi. The service wasn't great the first few times we went but this last time our waiter did a fantastic job but I'd go for the food alone even if the service was so-so. Definitely a must try for everyone who either loves sushi or is wanting to try.

While it is fairly common to find Chinese restaurants in small town America, it is less common to find a Japanese restaurant. Thus when passing through Pella, Iowa we were pleased to discover the newly opened Yamato Steak House of Japan.

This is a small restaurant with a surprisingly diversified menu. The have a nice variety of appetizers and salads. The sushi and sashimi offering is very good considering the restaurant size. They have numerous California rolls listed on the menu as well as a number of special rolls.

We were first planning to dine at Yamato in the evening, but once we learned that they do not yet have a liquor license we opted out for lunch. There are 8 lunch entrée specials, but I went with the Chicken Teriyaki Bento Box which included soup, salad, one spring roll, four California rolls and fried rice. The food was excellent and the price was fair.

My wife had the Hibachi Yakiniku (beef tips) and indicated that it was also excellent. Pella is fortunate to have this restaurant and it joins a number of international cuisines finding their way to Pella.
