Lunch here is awesome. The price is fair and chicken teriyaki combo is what to get here. The sushi is really fresh and delicious. Service for me was excellent. I go to this place all the time, it is great.

I love love love Yamado. Particulally, I like their rolls. Everything tastes so fresh and wonderful here. The restaurant is always clean with very mod decor. The service is very friendly. The price is affordable!!!
The best sushi in town. I definately recommend this place to everyone.

Great sushi place in Naperville. I go to this restaurant once a week. Great sushi, good service, and good price I like best. Even I have read many mixed reviews on Yamado, but the food was absolutely delicious and fresh. I usually go there on a Saturday night with my family, the atmosphere was spectacular. I would strongly recommend giving this place a try. I think Yamado is one of the best Japanese restaurant in this town. Ginger salad was awesome.

I am Japanese American, living in Naperville for more than 10 years. Sushi in Yamado is very delicious and I think best in this town. Sashimi is so fresh and price is also good. Ms Lee (new owner) and staff will treat you like king and

I really enjoy dining at Yamado and because it's near my house, I visit frequently. Their sushi is very fresh but their boxed sets are great as well. The tempura and edamame are nice appetizers and the servers are very helpful. The location is great and the food is just as awesome.

I have been going to Yamado for years now and it is my favorite Japanese restaurant ever! Mr.Lee is always very welcoming and the sushi is delicious. I have been to other Japanese restaurants but no other restaurants stand a chance against the freshness of the sushi at Yamado. I also absolutely love the miso soup and the homey feel of Yamado is wonderful. Even with new Japanese restaurants around Naperville, I know that I can always count on Yamado for delicious sushi!

Diarrhea! Nausea! Vomitting! That's what my party of 3 are all suffering from within less than hour after eating lunch at Yamado! What we ate -
luke warm miso soup
luke warm green tea
dragon roll - I had to return it because I found an eye lash in between the sliced roll. When I informed Mr. Lee he took a knife and scraped the hair off and asked if I wanted the remainder of my roll to go!
maguro
toro
chicken teriyaki lunch box - the chicken had a rubbery texture and a weird taste.
We've eaten here before and liked the fact that there's never more than 2 tables filled. Now I know why.
Folks DON'T eat here. There are atleast 6 other Japanese restaurants in Naperville.
I will be calling the Health Inspector, my other 2 friends have already done so.

ME AND A GOOD FRIEND ATE AT YOMADO AFTER MY RETURN FROM CALIFORNIA. I had eaten here many times before.

within 24 hours of consuming the raw salmon i experienced uncontrollable projectile vomit and diarrhea for 12 hours.
I was not able to hold down water.
I nearly had to go to the ER.
& this morning my friend also began to show symptoms of food bourne illness.

Business must not have been very good because they have significantly compromised the quality of their fish since the last time i ate there.
I will be calling the Health Inspector soon and letting them know about the food.

DO NOT EAT HERE.

We have been going to Yamado for many many years... over 6 yrs. Unfortunately, until about a couple of years ago, it was owned by someone else. Now Mr. Lee and his wife have created a great homey atmosphere and I visit multiple times a week. My children and I love it and every time anyone visits from out of town, we make sure to take them there. The sushi and sashimi is extremely generous (even on $1 Sushi days) and always super fresh. As a matter of fact, on occasion I have order Tuna pieces and if Mr. Lee feels at all it's not fresh enough, he will give me Toro instead (Toro = more expensive and much better tuna). I recommend you try it for yourself and see what we rave about to all our friends!

Pros: Very well greeted everytime....they even know my voice on the phone :)

Cons: Should change name or advise new ownership. They've gotten a bad rap.

I have read a lot of mixed reviews on this place but recently gave it a go and I am so happy I did. The food was absolutely delicious and very flavorful. The prices on a saturday were outstanding. The service was just enough, not overbearing and not neglectful. The atmosphere was nothing spectacular but that didn't bother me at all. I would higly recommend giving this place a try.

Pros: Not a stuffy upscale atmosphere

Cons: interior decor could use a little sprucing

The previous poster must have had a chip on his shoulder or someting.

Service and food at this place has always been excellent!! Nice atmosphere, kind of in an out of the way place. Food is awesome. Always fresh and wonderful. We are always warmyl greeted by the chef and hostess and the chef always shouts a goody bye and thank you when we leave. We highly recommend this place. Going tonight as a matter of fact.

I like to try different Sushi places, and this one is by far the worst I've come across! The sushi was mediocre/bad. Yellow tail was not fresh at all. The service was DEPLORABLE. They messed up and overcharged me $40!!! When I complaned, the owner was very very rude about it. He corrected the mistake with a terrible attitude complete with smacking his lips and grunting, and when I left about a 12% tip (which was generous considering the terrible service), he made a big deal about it being too small, so I gave him some more money and he THREW CHANGE AT ME!!!!! Would NEVER go back again!!!

By first appearances, Yamado is just another asian hole in the wall. Once you try it, you'll taste that it is truly a special place. While you might enjoy the Bento box or the Canyon roll your first time in, most people's first experience at Yamado is the $1 sushi on Tuesday evening or Saturday lunch. You have to pay cash to get the special deals (posted in several places including a sign outside), but that is a minor inconvenience. You can get really fast service at the Sushi bar even in the really crowded times. The Unagi pieces are large and easily the best I have had (heated in a toaster oven). The salmon sushimi is always fresh and cut thick. Truly addictive. I have had many conversations at the sushi bar with other patrons, and there is a growing cadre of people who make a Yamado meal a weekly treat. The owners and staff are polite and friendly, and know many of the regulars by name. Yamado is currently my favorite restaurant in Naperville.

First of all, We were following the review and yes they had a good deal for Sushi. But it was a horrible experience. The food was not fresh at all. We ordered salmon, tuna, shrimp, and eel. Our salmon was so dry it was falling apart. The Unagi was warmed in the microwave and did not even taste like eel. (-"-) The tuna and shrimp were too old and stale.

We decided to pay my bill and was about to use my credit card when the chef (I think he is also the owner) began slapping the table and yelling at me in Korean. We later were told by the waitress (who started to freak out) that only cash is accepted for the Sushi special (or if We are wrong please correct us. Because We had no idea). They were extremely rude...(T_T)

"Great" because We will never go back or recommend it to anyone!!! We guess you get what you pay for.

PROS: I 've never found one
CONS:

This is some of the best sushi in the area! If your unsure what to order talk to the chefs they are more than willing to offer advise. They have a Yamado Roll which is made with eel and avocado that is the best! Try it out.. you wont be dissapointed.
