I have been to a lot of restaurants in the Galveston area when i go down to the beach but none have been up to par. When i went to Yamato, the people were extremely nice and the chefs were very entertaining. My food was as good as the environment that i was in.
I am going to go to Yamato every time I go down to Galveston.
It is truly a gem in the area.

Don't let the outside appearance of this establishment lure you away! This establishment is absolutely awesome! The decor gave me a warm and cozy feeling. Once inside we were immediately and momentarily seated at a hibachi table upon our request. We didn't get there during rush hour, it was slowly increasing 5 minutes after we arrived. The menu we got included the prices of everything without having to question it. It's pricey and well worth it! (Nothing can put a price on anything that's priceless and memorable with the exceedingly excellent service we got at this place.) A couple sat at our table. Shortly after they requested to be seated elsewhere. Amazing how many people aren't aware the hibachi tables are made for multiple parties. Not sure if that was the case or not. They may not have felt comfortable being seated with another party or they may have simply wanted a place by themselves alone. We were served meno soup. It was served in small bowls like cups without a handle and I was tempted more than once to pick it up with both hands and drink it. I found myself caught up in the moment and wanted to do what I felt was customary due to the ambiance of this establishment. Our chef came to our table within 10 minutes after we were through with our soup. Soon he began to cook the food in front of us. Our chef showed us his skills and did it with such professionalism! He was awesome! He most certainly kept the little ones entertained from beginning to end. Unforgettable and priceless moments. Our food was cooked to pure perfection and it was suburb! It was delicious and plentiful! We will definitely visit this place again!

Pros: Food, food cooked in front of you, the chefs skills, small kids will enjoy it, nice place to take a date

Cons: Small parking lot and small establishment. May not be a ideal place during rush hours.

We love to eat at Japanese restaurants and it's always a treat for our kids. We won't be back to this one. The pieces of sushi were very small and thinly cut. My husband and I normally order a special roll each and another roll to share. We were hungry when we left the restaurant. And they were busy so they weren't very friendly and were anxious to have the table available. However, the couple we sat with were great company!

This restaurant seems decent, but when you're done ordering, you come to realize there is no price list. \r\nThat becomes more clear, when you see the bill.\r\n\r\nThe menu does not have any prices on it, which causes a person to just order away.\r\n\r\nBut, once you are done, the bill is very high. This deters a person from going back to the restaurant because even though you know how the food tastes, you will never know how much you will be charged.\r\n\r\nI will never go back to this restaurant, even if it was the last one on earth.

Great friendly atmosphere. Try tons of sushi prepared by the "sushi artists". Great seafood, steak fixed just the way you like it. One of my favorite places.

This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Galveston. It is different from the constant seafood and mexican food options and it's much more fun. The staff is very nice and efficient. The best part of this restaurant in my opinion is the habachi grill. The chef comes directly to the table and cooks your meal in front of you. Not only is it interesting to watch the way the cook your food, but they also provide a bit of entertainment as they create things with your food as it cooks. The best rooms to eat in our the front two, which have booths covered in red carpet. I have seen many people get into the spirit of things and remove their shoes and sit cross legged as they eat.

Our sushi eating kids love this place as a night out when in Galveston. They love the steak house bit about coming to our table and cooking. But the food is not all that great and the prices are high and the ""show"" of the chef is really hit and miss. But it isnt bad and its fun. I am sure we will go back next trip to Galveston.
