Yamato Japanese Restaurant


Japanese food has boomed since it first hit South Africa, with chains popping up here, there and everywhere. As a result of this culinary explosion, the integrity of Japanese food can sometimes be compromised.

Yamato doesn't compromise.

Everything about Japanese cuisine that truly makes it authentic and wonderful is harnessed by this traditional, family-run restaurant. Dining at Yamato will show you that there is much more to Japanese cuisine than just sushi, sashimi and teppanyaki. The simple yet extensive and exciting menu is host to a wide variety of dishes using ingredients imported directly from Japan itself. Try Mamasan’s delicious home-made tofu, created using the freshest ingredients. Of course the staple favourites are there, sushi, sashimi, tempura and teppanyaki – all made with the widest variety of the freshest fish and the tastiest beef, chicken and pork.

There is a fine selection of wines; after all, this is South Africa! For the more adventurous connoisseurs, there is Saki and Japanese beer.

Yamato gets the balance between the traditional and the contemporary just right, with a happy marriage between old world Japanese culture and cuisine and modern-day Japanese values.
