Do not waste your time at this place. The sushi all tasted old and fishy and the smell of the restaurant should have clued us in as well. Sushi was barely edible - appetizers were decent. If you have to come here, don't order the...More

We read all the good reviews on this place and thought, why not? The outside of the building almost caused us to second guess our decision, it should have been a clue. The inside was cramped and a really bad layout. The floor was sticky...More

Been in twice and have not been back. I was not impressed enough to return. There are too many very good to excellent restaurants in the area to call this restaurant above average.

We usually get the sushi, but also hibachi. The food, service, and building are all very nice. It's a little pricey, but I take into consideration the increased taxes they must pay in order to be in this location.

They have hands down the best sushi in FWB. I have been going to Yamato for over 5 years and the quality of food has been consistently great. Definetely try the seafood salad.
