Did you know the Yamato building was originally the first men's dorm at UCLA? Check out the UCLA Volunteer Center, which started WOMP right here!
Watch out, I asked for a table for two but a little cockroach wanted to sit with us...
Great cucumber salad (Kyuri Su)
great happy hour, and lunch menu. also, best philly roll in westwood
The sushi here is terrible. Spicy yellowtail wasn't spicy, eel avocado roll came without eel sauce. Better off getting sushi from the grocery store.
Visiting from AZ. The shishito peppers are nice if u like a little spice.
Reservation was for regular dining, sat us at a teppanyaki table and forced half of our party to order teppan yaki despite having 2 children, first experience here was great, second not so much.
Sit at the sushi bar for super quick service.
Customer service wasn't great and food was not the best :-/
Great fresh sushi. Great prices!!
Beware! Bone left in my sashimi and a scary bug crawling along side the sushi bar... No worries the waiter killed him...
Baked lobster and Rock N Roll Shrimp are the best!
Price is really reasonable as you can get baked lobster for 7 bucks?! The salt is something you can control with a low sodium soy sauce :)
Good sushi, reasonable prices. Caterpillar roll ftw
Cheap food with an expensive vibe! I love Yamato!
Really cool happy hour. Grab a $2 beer with your CA roll
What a great sushi spot! Amazing happy hour even tho the regular prices are good too! I love how they took an old bank and turned it into a beautiful restaurant!
Best part is...manager tried to accuse us of being a family he "remembers reserving a teppanyaki table and always to order from the regular menu."
Other than that, food is good
Bad service. We had a reservation and already sat down, hostess decided to give our table to someone else.
Garlic edamame is the bomb dot com! ;)
Recently reopened after a full fumigation. Be sure to ask for extra wasabi if you order the Spicy Cockroach Rolls.
Good quality sashimi and its practically FREE. This place has great sashimi at surprising price. Did I mention it this place is almost free!
Try the Yaki Udon - "That's so typical of Jazmin! Everyone is eating and she's on her phone..." lolololol (via @Foodspotting)
Try the White Dragon Roll - Okay...#Yumfest!! (via @Foodspotting)
Really good sushi, perfect if the dining hall in UCLA is closed and you want eat something different! Doesn't cost too much!Awesome!
The rolls here never disappoint. Good for large party events and good prices.
Salmon teriyaki is great! Huge portion, rice, miso soup, edamame, salad, and fruit for just $10.
Pink roll is really good. Cool atmosphere and great prices.
Order the #5 roll. It will not disappoint!
Krab is in almost every roll. Be wary, it's made of ground fish remnants :/
Order the fried chicken udon and the edamame.
Both rolls I tried were DELICIOUS (crunch/showtime ROLL.) What I didnt like was the service. The server mustve been new & also didnt speak up. I plan on going back bc the sushi makes up for it.
definitely worth the price if you go during happy hour!
Make a reservation if you're coming on a weekend night because it gets busy. The food is good.
Very affordable sushi. The rock n roll shrimp appetizer and the pink roll are my favorite.
Rock n roll shrimp...amazing.
Cheapest best sushi in town 5p - 11p! $7 for a dragon roll! Awesome. Great building and decor.
great ambience + cheap food = highly recommended
You can't go wrong with fried oysters and sake-tini!
A great place to get sushi.
Fried oysters are the best!
Try the saki-tini menu. Yum yum. Donald is the best bartender ever! Citrus cooler is amazing too. Brandon makes them the best
Filthy wine cellar floor! I guess they're consistent with not cleaning because all of the floors/walls/stairs are visibly dirty!
I've seen cleaner bathrooms at the gas station!! Yet there's a list up that employees sign off on once they clean it. Stainless steel walls/doors,floors, & toilet bowl were filthy!!!!
Atmosphere looks upscale but the Resteraunt is dirty. All floors are filthy, even the wine cellar.
Pretty good affordable sushi. Great vibe. Pink roll was the best.
Cold mashed potatoes?? Really?
Baked lobster roll ❤️❤️
