“Great food, sometimes less than stellar service”

Yamato Steakhouse of Japan

The food here is some of the best in Somerset. I love the grilled salmon bento box. The salmon has just enough char to be very flavorful, and the Sushi is fresh (prepped right then after you order at the bar) and even the Miso soup is better than average (many miso soups all taste the same).

However, service has been hit or miss, mainly depending on the specific server. Myself, with my wife and kids have eaten here multiple times and one visit we will get quick and attentitive service, while another we get left alone for too long, and the servers seem more interested in chit chatting rather than taking care of customers...

Food here alone is worth the trip though, best grilled salmon, scallops, and sushi in town!

I do NOT mind paying more for good food. The food was VERY good and the service was fine. Large selection of entrees

Food good, portions a little small, but most of all I miss the Hibachi and the "juggling" and show the Japanese put on in the bigger restaurants. The price is right for the food we got, but the building lacks the feel and flow of Japanese cuisine.

Restrooms were not clean for our visit but in fairness to the restaurant, it was busy and they did seem short-staffed.

The rice was tasteless; chicken was overdone; steak was perfect and veggies were fine. Overall: average.

The American employees are rude and verbally abusive to the Japanese workers in front of customers, the food was great but their behavior made my family and me so uncomfortable that we haven't been back. I don't support this restaurant and warn everyone who wants to go to stay away.

Having gone to Japan & having eaten @ many traditional Japanese restaurants all over the country, this restaurant doesn't rate very high. BUT for small town Japanese fare it is very good & reasonably priced
