We've had sushi/sashimi at Yamato several times now and have been very satisfied with the freshness and quality each time. I had a sashimi platter on Thursday night. The tuna and salmon were like butter. The first couple of times we went, we asked if we could substitute a couple of pieces of sushi for others we liked better. The waiter and chef were very accomodating. The last time around, a different waiter was very testy when we requested a change and wouldn't even approach the chef with the idea. (Said the chef would get mad at him.) But the experience still wouldn't discourage us from going back again (and again). It's really nice to have a decent sushi place so proximate.
