My husband and I had the hibachi chicken and shrimp. The price wasn't bad and the soup was hot but the rest of the food wasn't hot nor was it flavorful.

This is a great place for sushi and Japanese food. I was not expecting to fine such quality Japanese food in this part of the country. I have been two times and both times were very good. I highly recommend it.

We live about a mile away and eat here often. I love the black pepper tuna, crispy red snapper, and the Sushi. I've never had anything that wasn't delicious. The atmosphere is nice and the food is presented beautifully presented!

I have been here many times. I have been delighted with my food every time. I will go back. My husband loves the specialty rolls. Trys a new one every time. The clear soup is also a must get.

This is one of my favorite spots for lunch during the week. If I'm craving sushi or fried rice, Yamato is conveniently located to downtown Portsmouth, the price is good, and its ready to go within 10-15 minutes. The Hot Lover Roll is my go-to dish. Easily a winner and perfect for lunch. The Chicken Fried rice is good and... More

We had a very nice meal here on Mothers Day. I always get the vegetable dinner and it was good. You get plenty for the money. My husband got the filet and he could cut it with his fork. Between my daughters vegetable and mine, we had enough for the 4 of us for dinner the next night.

There's not much available in Portsmouth, OH as far as nice restaurants, but I was pleased with my dinner here. The miso was too salty, but the White Tiger roll was really delicious, with bananas on top of it. Service was great; all the waitresses were very friendly and accommodating. When I'm in town again, I'll definitely be stopping by.

Ordered 4 dinners for pick-up. The food was not of good quality. The rice was undercooked and the veggies were not fresh, the ordered was missing the soup and salad we ordered. We called to explain that we didn't receive our entire order. However, it seemed as an inconvenience on their part to answer the phone. The cucumber Sushi was... More

What a nice surprise while in town. The staff was friendly and atmosphere was enjoyable. The sushi was fresh and tasted great. Probably ate too much but it was worth it.
