This restaurant is a disappointment to anyone who was used to their former standards. – Yamato USED to be a great place, for YEARS. My husband and I love sushi, and have made it a "regular" dinner outing, since we first met. We had our 2nd date at this restaurant, in 1998. Yamato was sold to new owners a couple of years ago, when the original owner had to move back to Japan, for a family concern. They used the name "Kabuki Express", for awhile; I don't know what name they are using now.
The quality of the fish is not as good as it used to be..... the rolls are smaller..... the prices are higher..... this restaurant is a disappointment to anyone who was used to their former standards.
The last time my husband & I were there, they had installed a TV in the corner of the (small) restaurant & they were playing it rather loudly. A local radio station was playing (at the same time), instead of the subtle Japanese music they used to play. The female sushi chef had long, stringy hair dangling past her waist (totally unsanitary), and her 2 small children were watching a DVD on a portable player, at the end of the circular dining area (adding to the noise of the TV and radio). We were stunned.... we've never gone back since, and I doubt we ever will. We're sorry that one of our favorite places is now "off our list". I'm sure the former owner would be very unhappy with the food quality, (lack of ) ambiance, and the noise level.
Great Place! – Yamato is one of the best places to get sushi, especially when you don't have much time. The fish is very fresh and tasty. Try the caliente roll! It's sooo good!
