Me and my friend go into Yamato Encino every once in a while because they have the best tapan there. We always have to get 2 pitchers of kikosui saki. Love the fact that the food is made right in front of us. It is always very fresh and delicious. They have really nice and friendly service as well. We??ve been there so many time that they know who we are by now.

Fresh and good food for the family. The price is reasonable. The tepanyaki is the best for the whole family.

Pros: dynamite was large and pretty good, has teppan, big restaurant

Cons: terrible service, poorly made sushi

I really enjoy going to Yamato with my family or a group of friends because sitting at the Teppan grill is always a fun bonding experience. The menu is similar to Bennihana- but perhaps a bit cheaper. The meals are always very filling and

I always sit at the bar when I come in the restaruant, not really for anything else but for the great service I get from Mika, the bartender. She is so cute and always pleasent, and my drinks always come out perfectly: I usually end up

Pros: Good food

When a restaurant is busy, the kitchen can get backed up and there can be service delays -- that's understood. But when, after a long wait, items that you ordered never come even after reminding the server several times, it is amateurish.

while i wouldn't come here for a sushi meal, the teppan here is pretty decent. the place has really gotten packed within the last year, there's now a 30-40 min. wait most days. the seafood teppan is much better than the chicken or beef and

I know this place is known primarily for its Teppen grill and sushi, but its traditional Japanese fair is quite good as well. I usually sit in the "sushi" or "regular dining" area of the restuarant, and get standard Japanese fare,
