“Love it! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

They have great food... The sushi rolls are better than most places I've been. The black pepper chicken is phenomenal. The bento boxes are a great value and their salad dressing is one of my favorites!

We eat here all the time. The food is delicious, well priced, and beautifully presented. I've never had anything bad here, everything is so fresh!

This place is a very good place to eat. Meet there with my girls several times now. The yum yum sauce is fabulous! Love the decor in the place. Very clean place to eat.

“Best Asian food around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Not that many travelers will have reason to pass through Portsmouth, OH, (it's not on the way to anywhere) but if you've made a wrong turn or your GPS has gone belly-up and you've found yourself on Route 23 just north of the Ohio River, give Yamato a chance. I live here and among the several Asian food options, this is the best. They make good sushi and any of their hibachi lunches are tasty and reasonable. On my last visit I had a California roll with avocado, cucumber, and soft-shelled crab. Warm on the inside, cool on the outside, great with wasabi. The soft-shelled crab dinner is excellent as well. Nothing fancy here, but offering a diverse, well-prepared, authentic menu.
