It is hard to save room for dessert. Had the 'boat' of sushi which was very good. My wife had the beef terriyaki which was also very good. But the desserys were the greatest. Try the fried cheesecake. Sounds weird but tastes great! The lava...More

The food is excellent whether you like sushi or standard American dishes. The timing on dinner can be a bit long when the restaurant is busy. Service is not very attentive after the initial order.

In the heart of Bishop is this little gem! The fish is very fresh and well prepared. The menu is complete as is the sake list. And service was great.

This place has excellent sushi. Who would have thought in Bishop? You can't go wrong with any of the rolls and the sushi is large servings.

Ate here and had good experiences both times. The sushi was very good and the Japaneese dishes are very tasty and authentic. If you are looking for a great place to eat give Yamatani a try.

On our drive from So Cal to North Idaho, we stopped for the night in Bishop. We love sushi and our BNB told us about this place. I told our waitress I cannot have mayo on any roll because of allergy to eggs. She assured...More
