Sake Bombs! Can get pricey when the sake bombs are thrown in, but its worth it with a group of friends. Great food prepared right in front of you by an entertaining, great chef!
Sushi is great, but I usually go with the Chicken and Beef combo dinner!

YUM!

A little pricey but worth it. Had some sushi, chicken, steak, shrimp and fried rice. All was very good. Will be making trip again do to rain out. Will try to get back there.

We enjoyed Yamato atmosphere and their delicious sushi, though the prices are a little expensive. The restaurant has been in Galveston a long time, as others have come and gone.

For being a sushi place in a tourist type location, I was really impressed with the price of the food. I decided to experiment and try some sushi I hadn't had before, so I can't compare the individual sushi against other restaurants. The wait staff were very friendly though, and answered any questions I had. The Kamikaze rolls was surprisingly good for being so cheap. The Rainbow Roll was only okay, but having never had it before it could easily be that it was just too fishy for me.

Excellent Sushi bar!!! For full dinners you sit around the grill with others and the chef does all of his knife majic. Fun and good. Very high quality food.
