Amazing ! Everything was excellent, ESPECIALLY thanks to our chef - JEFF - who was the BEST chef we have ever seen !!! We went on Friday to celebrate a birthday. We usually go to Benny Hanna for special events, but we heard good reviews on that restaurant, and decided to give it a shot. OH..... what an amazing evening... More

My grandson and I shared a birthday party at this restaurant. It is a wonderful pleasure to enjoy watching chefs grilling your food and entertaining us. We've been here before and it is enjoyable. The food is what you select, if you blame anybody look at yourself first. Young children have fun also.

Great food, great service, quick and easy. The food is fantastic. I have gone for lunch and dinner and both are equally great experiences. We went for a party a few months ago and it was awesome along with the service. I have some food restrictions and they were very accommodating to my needs. I really like the Chicken Katsu.... More

Needed to meet a friend for lunch and had a tough time finding a sushi restaurant that was open for lunch. A friend told us about Yamato so we decided to give it a shot. The service was very friendly. We LOVED the Spicy Tuna Tower and the Volcano Roll among a few other rolls. And the bill was very... More

This place is way better than Benihana- price wise and food wise. Get the fried rice, you won't be disappointed.
