Yamato opened almost 2 decades ago in 2001 as one of Rotorua's first Japanese restaurant. We pride ourselves in serving real authentic Japanese cuisine by experienced Chefs, professionally trained in Japan. Not only the food but the restaurant itself embodies the aesthetic, culture and tradition that you would only experience in the land of the rising sun. We have been fortunate enough to have people coming to visit us from across New Zealand and Japan since our opening and we hope to continue to serve our lovely customers who have supported us through our wonderful journey.
