Ate here and had good experiences both times. The sushi was very good and the Japaneese dishes are very tasty and authentic. If you are looking for a great place to eat give Yamatani a try.

Traditional janpense menu. Amazing to get such fresh fish in the middle of the dessert. Always go there.

Get the "BOB" roll, you will be back again and again! Always great service for a special evening out with family/friends. The fried cheese cake is great!

This was my first visit. It will probably be my last. The restaurant has Japanese modern decor. Service was very casual regarding conversation but attentive. Salmon dishes use farmed salmon, a disappointment. Only the fancy sushi rolls real crab, but they charge real crab prices...More

This is a yummy place to go! I order the chicken teriyaki and it comes with rice, salad, and soup! I must confess that sometimes I also order the tempura
