Traditional Japanese Steak House with expected food and service. I did like that they served large portions of rice, gave me double yum yum sauce and sherbet for dessert. Great dinner on a cold night away from home.

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.
