Teppan is great here with very reasonable price. It is the best to order fried rice to entertain with fire and flame. Definitely love it.
Although their sushi is fair, their teppan is excellent.
Bad, Horrible so-called sushi – Where do I start? This is bad sushi. House special seems to be a California roll (imitation crab) which all the high school kids present with their cokes were loving. Sushi pieces so thin I could see my girl friend looking through. The smallest, saddest looking soft shell crab ever. Employees (looked like the dishwashers) singing Happy birthday with Halloween masks on at several tables in one 2 hour period. Old expired rotating sushi plates I didn't want to touch. I wish I could find a new home for those poor Koi swimming in the dirty water out front. Don't believe all those positive reviews. I just hope I don't get sick.
I'm sitting here with heartburn. Thanks to this place. So many things grossed me out about Yamato - from the dirty water in the koi pond out front to the rotating sushi plates around the sushi bar. The same twenty plates of gross-looking rolls or sushi pieces go rotating by you - its not like in Japan where people are actually grabbing them and the sushi chef is constantly re-stocking or taking off things that have been on too long. it was like a shooting gallery of sad-looking sushis. The worst thing was the little plastic covers over all of them - the plastic looked all smeary and cracked - it reminded me of hospital food. My other big complaint was that when you go to a sushi restaurant, you expect traditional Japanese serving plates, of interesting colors and shapes, that compliment the food--- all the plates I was served were standard-issue cafeteria-looking round or oval white western-style dishes. it made the food look gross. again, kinda like hospital food if they served sushi at hospitals. Then there was the actual taste of the food--- the sashimi was pretty flavorless, the rolls had a weird earthy (kinda like decaying) taste to them, and the gyoza i ordered were waaaaay too fried. Oh and they tried to overcharge me. Sorry. It sucked. But that's what I get for trying to eat sushi in Valencia.
BEST ENVIORNMENT EVER!! – Ok i recently had a date with this hot guy. i was really nervous and he asked me to choose a place to go eat. So i heard from many of my friends i should go to this teppan/sushi/bar restaurant called "yamato"...
I LOVED IT! Because the chef that i had was awesome! he made my date and I laugh so much. Which broke the ice ( u kno how first dates are*) and from then on everything was smooth sailing. It felt so comfortable eating there. espcially the food, its to die for.**
Good food! – I had delicious Chicken Teriyaki and vegatable Tempura here. The portions are very good and the place has good service and atmosphere.
