There are plenty of sushi joints in Gothenburg, but Yamato is seriously the best sushi restaurant around, serving genuine sushi made from high quality produce, made with great care and pride. Tasty combinations you don't find at the cheaper sushi places around town, and friendly, welcoming and relaxed staff that is happy to help out with special requests and answer... More

Good and consistent quality, well worth the price which is very reasonable. Door to door with "Haket" which enables you to order beer from their enormous beer menu to accompany the sushi.

We visited Yamato on a Friday evening - the starters as well as the sushi main courses were tasty and good. However the sushi was not spectacular or very unique - pretty much the standard stuff one usually gets. Assortment of Japanese beers was excellent though with great variety. Service was good but not always very attentive. Overall atmosphere is... More

First of all, to be clear about one thing, before I write anything else, this IS a nice restaurant. Nice service and good food. But it is not anything over average. I find it odd if this is the best japanese restaurant in Gothenburg. We tasted almost everything on the menu, but exept for the the desserts, it was rather... More

Yamato has an excellent selection, and everything is tasty. The staff is very friendly and the dining room has a very plesant feeling. There are sushi places all over Göteborg, and I've been to many of them, however, this really is one of the best.

We stumbled across this restaurant by coincidence, tired after a long day of shopping in the Haga district. Service was great, and a very nice lady guided us through the menu and helped us order. We ordered a box of mixed Japanese dishes and sushi, and the food was excellent and tasty. The atmosphere was relaxing but a bit sterile.... More

We've rediscovered Yamato. When we turned vegetarian a few years ago, the thought of Sushi and Sashimi seemed impossible to reconcile with vegetarianism. But we learned that there are many ways to create Sushi and recently we walked into Yamato again on our way home from a concert. They create both Vegan and Vegetarian varieties of all kinds of Japanese... More

During the years I have enjoyed this small japanese restaurants´ excellent food again and again and never been disappointed. Though not very well known - probably because of the location being slightly, (but only slightly) off the main path- it is The place to go for good japanese food in Göteborg. Their sushi is excellent-always fresh and good quality. Their... More
