Good food, service a little up and down. Owner makes you feel welcomed. Off the beaten path. Doesn't look attractive from the curb.

We tend to make repeat trips to restaurants when we find a particularly good menu item. We go back and order that favorite dish at that particular restaurant. With Yamato it is their Bento Box. Yamato is a small Japanese restaurant on a main drag outside the town center. There is nothing in the way of the typical Japanese decor.... More

They have an extensive sushi menu. Sushi is made on the premises from fresh ingredients. Lots of choices and it is all good. The regular menu is also good. I had the teriyaki chicken dinner with zucchini and onions. Mmmmmmmmmmm......... The meal could have been a bit hotter, but it was fine. The restaurant doesn't have a lot of Japanese... More

This is the one place that all five of us can agree upon! From the outside, it is nothing special. But the inside is well done, relaxing and friendly. The staff is always polite and attentive. The food is consistantly delicious! The menu might not be fancy-funky but you can't beat the prices on the sushi! Van is the owner... More

Great Japanese spot in Apex, NC. Bento boxes would easily feed two! Expect the owner to visit your table and see how things are going! Everything prepared well and sushi is top notch!
