The menu is solid! Straightforward and authentic: the Maki section includes simple rolls mixed in a list with the 'special' rolls. Bottle of nigori sake came with large bar-styled glasses that fit the bottle perfectly between the two. Rolls are good as can be. Recommend the veggie crunch to anyone who wants a seafood-free option. The vampire roll was perfect for the halloween season

Our waitress was stuck serving the packed house with only the help of a host and someone bringing water/tea. She handled it quickly and effectively!

What a surprise in small town California... really delicious and fresh Japanese food at a good price. All five of us loved it with very different palates and tastes. Totally worth a visit!!! And the maitre d is that rare American who is both interested and knowledeable about the rest of the world!

Stopped in Bishop for one night hungry and sick of burgers. Found this Japanese restaurant and the food was incredibly good! Fresh. Delicious. Very good. Australians looking for a great restaurant this it a good option.

We sure didn't expect to find a place like this in Bishop. Walking distance from our hotel. They open at 5pm. We were seated immediately. The place was full by the time we finished our meal. Great selection of food. The calamari steak and salmon was great. Very tender. Service was attentive, but not annoying. Sake was warm and delicious. Good for families that enjoy sushi or Japanese food.

You may wonder about sushi in Bishop...but Yamatani is always a great meal. I suggest the oyster shooter and sitting with Robbie at the sushi bar.
