Yakitori Yamato Reviews

Yakitori Yamato Google Average Rating



We came here for my husband’s birthday, just the two of us. The staff were absolutely amazing, they were super nice and delightful. The food was out of this world, and the presentation of the food was very artistic. If I’m ever back in Osaka I will for sure visit them again. They made tonight very special for us, and we will never forget them.
And I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone who comes to Osaka.


Solid food.good ramen and chicken thighs.


Among the high-end yakitori restaurants in Osaka, it is one of the easiest to make reservations for. There are two types of courses: 10,000 yen and 13,000 yen, and I received the 10,000 yen one.

Although the names of the appetizers are exaggerated, they are relatively average. The main dish, yakitori, is absolutely delicious. The meat quality, elasticity, fat, and doneness are perfect. Speaking of greed, I wanted two of each...

To finish your meal, you can choose either egg-cooked rice or minced rice. If you don't like raw eggs, I definitely recommend egg-cooked rice.

Lastly, I was a little annoyed that the store staff did not send me off after paying. Eh, can I just go home? That's what it feels like.

Overall, it was a store that was well worth the price, neither too expensive nor too cheap.
