My family and I have been going to Yamatos for over 30 years. We've taken relatives many times and no one has ever been disappointed. The food is excellent and the service friendly. Many people go for special occasions.

This place is mind blowing! They cook in front of you! I have never been to a place where they do that. It is delicious! I totally recommend this place. The rainbow sherbet there was the best I have ever had!!
