Now in its tenth year, Yamato remains the Japanese choice for sushi and sashimi. Classy, black granite floors, bamboo blinds, rice paper screens, blond wood sushi bar and a red lantern give that Japanese tea house feel.
There’s an excellent assortment of fish in the deluxe nigiri sushi selection, plus a large teppanyaki table for shabu-shabu and nabe. Assorted tempura (butternut, prawns, red snapper, onion and brinjal) comes with a tangy dipping sauce of grated ginger and coconut with sherry and soi. Sake, Japanese beer and a reasonable wine list provide plenty of options.
