Japanese food with its freshness is a must for any food lover. The wide variety of Sushi and Sashimi dishes proves that Yamato stands proud in its efforts to be the best sushi restaurant in Johannesburg, South Africa. We at Yamato Japanese Restaurant call it authentic Japanese food with great flavours that will amaze your taste buds. Come take part in the culture of Japanese food and experience the buzz around Sushi and Sashimi for yourself.
Often, when something becomes fashionable, it loses its authenticity because it gets copied and mass-produced. People who buy into it frequently don't appreciate or understand the tradition or the art behind the concept. This is true of many of the culinary arts, Sushi and Sashimi, in particular. The other problem is that people associate the sum of Japanese food with Sushi, Sashimi and Teppanyaki, while there is in fact much more. (view our delicious dishes)
Yamato, which is the old world name for Japan, is a traditional Japanese restaurant in the very best sense of the word. It is a family run restaurant where true Japanese food is lovingly prepared in a kitchen where only fresh ingredients are used to make the Tofu, sauces and noodles that in most other restaurants, are usually out sourced. All of the other ingredients necessary are imported by Yamato, directly from Japan.
