Good, but only because its cheap and no other reason. – This place has potential for greatness, but there is a major problem. It is too close to pimple infested students and heir staff is untrained, I mean no idea of what customer service is about.

I go here often, the prices are great, but the servers are rude and incompetent, I can set my watch to the fact that the servers will always, I mean ALWAYS get my order at least a little wrong, sometimes, completely off.

Here is an example of my last two take out orders: asked for extra garlic sauce on edamame, asked for two miso soups, asked for salmon sashimi and dragon roll, got dragon roll, one miso and no sauce on my edamame.... Was charged for order that was mentioned... WERE THEY TRYING TO MESS UP?

Do not recommend for those that do not like to double check their orders, if you'fe meticulous, then go ahead and go here...

Great sushi for UCLA students – Yamato is my favorite! I absolutely love the 911 Roll. The food is always 50% because of happy hour. This is the best restaurant for the college crowd. Always full of UCLA students who are sake bombing before going to their frat parties. They recently got a DJ for saturday nights so expect to hear House and Hip Hop music while dining.

*Ask for Pim to be your server! She is the Best!

Amazing Sushi in Westwood – Yamato is currently my favorite restaurant! The sushi is above average, the staff is very friendly, and the crowd is mostly college students from UCLA. Whenever I walk in, I am greeted by the Hostess by the door as well as all the sushi makers at the bar. They have a DJ there on Saturday nights to play House and Rap music while you dine. Ask for Jenna to be your waitress. She's Hot!

In my opinion, Yamato is the best restuarant in all of Westwood.

Awesome for the sushi timid! – We wanted a quick bite on our way out to a party and stopped in. They had great 1/2 price happy hour specials. We got to try several different rolls, salads, skewers, and tempura and the total was less than $30. It has an upscale decor but it is in the center of Westwood village and it is not pretentious. It is come as you are with lots of students in their UCLA sweats and t-shirt as well as people dressed for an evening out. Service was adequate and parking is always a challenge in Westwood but I would defineately recommend giving it a try if you arte in the neighborhood.

My Favorite Sushi Restaurant!! – Yamato is my favorite sushi restaurant. The first time I went there I was amazed at the quality of the sushi compared to the low prices. They have great sake as well. Besides the food/drinks, the fact that there is a DJ makes it even better. What more can you ask for?

Give it a shot! – Yamato is the best value in Los Angeles, hands down. Amazing decor, good food, and unreasonably cheap prices....what more can you ask for? Definitely worth visiting.

wonderful customer service – I entered Yamato with reluctance because I had had my wedding reception in the space when it was Eurochow. I was saddened to hear of Eurochow no longer being there because of the memories and the amazing experience I had. But my friends and I were hungry and I was generally curious about the changes with the restaurant, space, and service. We came in very late--near closing--but the manager Akira was so accommodating and welcoming. Our food was pretty good, by far the best Yamato I have ever been to, but it was the overall service of the manager and the server that really impressed me. They were very kind and genuine in their having us there--even though we were the last ones. Great price, good food, beautiful ambience, awesome service.

Great ambience! – My buddies and I randomly walked into this place not really sure what to expect. We've passed by it a lot since we live near Westwood, but we never actually went in.

The night turned out to be a great surprise! As soon as we went in, we were very impressed by how spacious it was and how nicely decorated. It looks like a very high class, high end type of place, but the prices turned out to be very very reasonable! I tried the black cod which literally melts in your mouth and my friend got a bunch of little appetizers like shiitake mushrooms, tofu, eggplant, and other Japanese dishes.

Be sure to get the molten chocolate cake for dessert.
