This place has sushi that is as good as any place I have ever eaten, and prices less than half of any restaurant I have ever seen.

I went in for dinner and this is real authentic Japanese food. Great decor in the restaurant. Friendly staff and the prices are reasonable. I enjoyed some great tempura and karage deep fried chicken and some very tasty Japanese sake. Non smoking restaurant.

We haven't been here for a while and we were delighted to find the same dishes, the same quality and the same consistency. As I have reviewed this place previously and included all aspects such as location, ambiance, what is it suitable for, etc.; this is just an update: 1.

The correct address should be Soi 13/1 off Pattaya Beach Road (see street photos) , and not Soi 31/1 as listed in Tripvisor address... Sushi and Sashimi are absolutely fresh and awesome, set in an authentic traditional Japanese eatery ! Prices are reasonable and looking forward to returning to this famed Yamato Japanese restaurant in Pattaya krub..

Been here a few times and meals have been excellent. But tonight I opted for the tempura set and it was disappointing. Tempura was soggy not crisp, the miso soup had no shredded dried bonito so was quite tasteless. There was some sort of what looked like vanilla panacota as a desert but it was completely tasteless as well. Will... More

For me, Yamato is better than some other Japanese Restaurant here in Pattaya. Located near Royal Garden, if you have car you can park at Royal Garden. Though the location of the restaurant is in Soi 13/1 where the bars are but the ambiance inside is great. quiet, cosy and not crowded. foods are excellent and fresh! We've been here... More

I was pretty excited to enjoy some sushi here, given the many positive reviews. Not very crowded, they started me with a small dish of squid (as an amuse bouche) that was tasty (but I'm not a big fan of squid). The sushi was delicious, especially the maguro and cucumber and sake (salmon). Speaking of sake (the drink) they have... More

Fun little Japanese restaurant in not a very nice soi, but worth it. Good sushi and sashimi, great Salmon roe. Will go back.
