First time I have eaten Japanese food. It was very yummy. However, the place is small, so plan on making reservations if it is a holiday or peak time. I had strip steak and it was the probably one of the best steaks I have ever had. YUMMY!

I've been looking for sushi in all the wrong places and then I found this place. I was on my way to a different restaurant and when I found it was closed went back to this place because I was starving. I ordered a salmon/avocado hand roll, California roll, and a rainbow roll -- the essentials. It's like testing the... More

The bento box lunch, for $8.50, with california roll, two spring rolls, rice, tempura chicken, shrimp or veggies, includes a small salad for starter. Served in a beautiful bento box tray with a smidge of wasabi and pickled ginger in the middle. So filling and everything is absolutely delicious. I always only want to get that when I go in....

I struggled between 3 stars and 4. If you come when the fish is just ordered it is great. But mid week cycle it is good. Neverthess, it's great to have sushi/sashimi, tempura and teriyaki here in town. And it's all prepared well. I love the seaweed salad, which can be inaccessible at other places. I go for the sashimi,... More

I like the Hibachi. They have good sushi and kids meals too. They have a small bar area and a sushi bar. Great food...always good. They offer a punch card and you get $30 off a meal.

The food is always fresh and delicious. We usually order hibachi. The grilled vegetables are delicious and cooked just right. The rice is also yummy. Many entrees come with soup and salad. I think the service can be confusing at times because different servers approach. However they are always pleasant. I always look forward to a meal here.

After a shopping spree in Smithfield we had a hankering for some sushi & scorpion bowls. The local Yamoto was just around the corner and not having been in a couple of years figured to give it a go. Nicole, our bartender, was great! Funny and full of comebacks, a real pleasure to have behind the bar. It was a... More

In the Providence area for my granddaughter's birthday, she wanted japanese. We waited 90 minutes after arrival to be told that the steak had "run out" and needed to be cut! the adults had had our appetizers, soups and salads, and were not hungry by that time; the children, however, were hungry, crying, and extremely disappointed when we were finally,...

I've been to Yamato twice in the past month and was pleasantly surprised both with dining in and take-out. I live in the area and typically drive into Providence for good sushi but decided to give it a shot. My first visit, my husband and I sat down for lunch. We each ordered the 2 roll maki lunch special which... More

Made reservations and we were pleasantly surprised by a reserved sign at a nice corner booth. The first time we went and made reservations we showed up and received a number and waited a half hour to sit. Nice to see they worked out the bugs as the wait was when it first opened. Whether it is sushi or hibachi... More
