Yamato Japanese Restaurant
“Sushi and Sashimi have become everyday words as Japanese cuisine has become more and more popular throughout the world but sushi and sashimi is not the beginning and the end of Japanese food.”
Explore our menu to view a wide range of traditional Japanese food.
Opened in 1995 and situated just off Oxford Road in trendy Illovo, the restaurant itself is an elegant expression of the simplicity that underscores much of Japanese culture.
The menu is extensive, with both a set menu and an a-la-carte section offering an amazing variety of delicacies. The a-la-carte menu has some amazing soups, exciting salads and starters with MamaSan’s famous homemade Tofu. The menu uses fresh beef, chicken and pork, and probably the widest variety of fish you will find anywhere, in the making of the Sushi and Sashimi. Of course Tepanyaki is offered, so too is deep fried Tempura and traditional Japanese noodles.
For dessert there are a number of options, an excellent choice being the Green Tea Ice Cream made from traditional Matcha. Naturally Saki is on offer, together with Japanese beer and a fine selection of wines.
