We have been to Yamato numerous times since it opened and the food is always really good.
The last time we went there the restaurant was starting to get dirty. Not to the point of being afraid to eat there it just needs a good thorough cleaning. Not what you would expect with their prices.

So unremarkable that I can't remember what I ordered!

Restaurant is located in a shopping center, in a decent area. We expected more.

It was almost a year ago for our last visit. Here are the particulars of our visit on December 20, 2015
I had the Hibachi Chicken which was good but not to the point of being great. There was more than enough food which included the soup and salad. Again the salad dressing is one size fits all. It is a kind of honey mustard flavor which isn't bad at all.
One person had the Hibachi salmon which was okay but not nearly the best in the world. I would rate it as average.
The other had the Bento box which was good.
We try different things and maybe the chicken isn't the best thing on the menu but it is good.
The service was very good, we didn't have a wait and the place was less than half full.
The prices are average for the most part.
I would go back again but maybe not wait another year. I recommend it in Richmond.

Don't let the fact that this restaurant sits in a strip mall next to a Krogers grocery. It looks like nothing from the outside, but you step inside to food to treat your palate. The service is good, but the food is excellent. All the dishes are made fresh while you wait. It is one of the places when you order a chicken dish you can actually tell it is real chicken. I have eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

Ate here with a group of people. The interior is nice, clean, and borderline romantic. One of the people eating with me had little experience with Japanese food. He ordered the chicken yaki soba and cleaned his plate! I ate one of their special rolls which they customized for me. It was so good that I ordered one to go. When stuck in Richmond, this is a great place to eat!
