We went to Yamato on New Years eve for early dinner with my In Laws. There were two problems no beer and wine and would not allow you to BYOB. This was upsetting since they have been promising availability for six months or longer. Overall the sushi and hibachi dishes were very good. However we ordered a House Fried Rice... More

Our 17 year old granddaughter got this recommendation from her teacher, so we were a little concerned about sushi in a small town. Not to worry! The small and unassuming location proved to be a hidden gem. The sushi was excellent and the atmosphere tasteful. We had pork dumplings for appetizer and several of their rolls for lunch. We topped... More

This place seats about 12-14 people. That keeps it charming and like your own little hideout that no one else knows about. The food is very good from the Hibachi to the sushi. Special rolls are always very good. Me and my wife have been into sushi for about 9 years and are very careful with where we go and... More

The restaurant is small (15 seats)but clean. Staff is friendly. Food is phenomenal, fresh,fairly priced. We tried the boxed lunch- lovely presentation and yummy. On our last visit, the hibachi shrimp and steak/chicken meals were splendid, great portions, the best fried rice I've ever had. The sushi rolls are a must try- alot to choose from.

A jewel of a restaurant in a shopping plaza in Leominster. What TOOK us so long to wander into Yamato? It's terrific! Everything coming to the tables looked yummy. We decided our maiden voyage was to try Gyoza (fried pork dumplings) as an appetizer, my better half raves about them! We then ordered the Volcano Roll which is crabmeat, cuke,... More

We came to Yamato for the first time a few weeks ago. The sushi was decent but the wait was ridiculous. Not even busy yet 20 minutes to place our order. I most likely won't return here but the sushi isn't regrettable.

Went to this restaurant and returned two nights later to enjoy the fresh fish for a second time. The manager recognized me and even what i ordered two nights ago. The chef asked if i was open to a recommendation and who knows better than the chef, I took his recommendation after he asked what i liked ne whipped a... More

After reading several good reviews we decided to try this restaurant. My husband and I love sushi and have it fairly often. We were disappointed, the fish was not very fresh. I read the service was so friendly, it was adequate but I would not call it friendly at all. With so many options within driving distance, we will not... More

I have had better sushi in a buffet or from Hannaford! My husband and I were very underwhelmed and not impressed. The fish didn't have much flavor and I didn't feel it was worth the money, imho. Next time I have a sushi hankering, I will go to Sapporo in Westboro where I have had the best.

I go here a lot, usually by myself when I go to Hannaford's across the street. My absolute favorite is the shrimp shumai. I've had some good sushi here and some I didn't like at all. I sometimes get the chicken hibachi dinner, which is consistently good. When i want a treat, i get a banana party dessert. Prices are... More
