I went with a group of 14. We were squeezed into a long table. This was NOT my first trip to Yamatos. I lived in JC for 16 years and frequented this location as soon as it came into being. This was my first trip back to Yamatos since 2004.
It wasn't quite what I remember. I ordered a triple combo. Shrimp, yaki, sesame chicken. All we wonderful, except the shrimp. These appeared to be little tiny salad shrimp. Very disappointing. HOWEVER, Flavor was exceptional as usual! I took home leftovers enough for two more meals.
I have to say the waitress was good. Prompt without being pushy. I asked for a details receipt at the counter when paying my portion of the bills. The receipt was incorrect on the amounts of each item...and took them nearly 10 minutes to write out!
Worst thing. Walking in and it smelled like bathroom. :-(
