Japanese food with its freshness is a must for any food lover. The wide variety of Sushi and Sashimi dishes proves that Yamato stands proud in its efforts to be the best sushi restaurant in Johannesburg
This restaurant offers no fuss no frills pure Japanese cuisine. It is all about the food, and nothing else. You do not come here for service or ambiance, but rather the food. Extensive menu chalk full of Japanese specialities. Not cheap, but worth it.

I was there last weekend for dinner with my mom. We were literally the only people seated in the restaurant but no one came to ask if we wanted to drink and we kept waiting because we couldn't get the waitress' attention and when we eventually had a waitress to order she left while I was mid sentence ordering our meals to go attend to people who had just walked into the restaurant.
I have been eating here for more than 10 years and even before they moved to the new building but I have never had such an appalling service anywhere and I am not going back. I cannot comment on the food because we left and went to Japa to eat

pathetic.ramen noodles??? two minute noodles. and some meat.
R700 for noodles and sushi.
they should pack up, go eat ramen in hong kong..'
Have been to Yamato a few times in the first three months of 2015 and the food has been consistent. Consistently delicious!
The Pork dumplings are my favourite, I confess just the thought of them makes me salivate. We have also of late been skipping the sushi menu in favour of some of the other more traditional Japanese dishes, like Agedashi Dofu (deep fried tofu), Oshinko (pickled veggies) and Buta Kakuni (pork belly).
The Buta Kakuni is slowed cooked making it beautifully soft, melt in your mouth yum. If you are a big group and a red meat fan, I can recommend ordering Sukiyaki. This dish allows you to cook sliced rib eye, veggies and tofu in stock at your table to your liking. Shabu-Shabu is also a great option, you cook your meat, veg and tofu in a kelp soup. I am so looking forward to my next visit to Yamato and my next order of what I think are the best pork dumplings in Gauteng!
Service is very slow.
Prices minus -10 /10 outrageous
Would not recommend to anyone
