We were seated in a section that was somewhat enclosed by walls. The area had some fans set up but the heat was horrible. When I asked about it, the manager said, "Yeah, we know it is hot. We are working on it." Where I was seated hot air was blowing on my legs from under the table. The chef was fun at first but I then sped up and rushed through our meal at such a pace that they forgot to serve our salads. I would not eat there again. Unfortunately, I couldn't enjoy my food or the time with my family due to the heat!

We make it a point to eat here every year. Make sure you make a reservation though. Otherwise, you'll be waiting a LONG time. The food is superb, the chefs are entertaining and the service is great!

Best hibachi we have ever been to. We always come here a night on vacation. Reservations for larger parties is definitely recommended. The chefs are fun and you get a ton of food.

First and last time. My server smelled of cigarettes. And they are always on their phones. And the "show" sucked he was dropping everything. Waist of money and time. And the server needs to get a new job. If you can't carry a tray then find a new career

I would honestly have to say that this is the worst hibachi restaurant our family has ever been to. Our chef was not friendly and the waiter was rude. I expected our chef to do tricks and make us laugh but we never got any of that. The food was not great either and very bland. It was definitely not worth the money. We felt like they were rushing our table to get out of there so they could seat more people. The atmosphere was too dark and smokey. I would highly not recommend this establishment to anyone.

I was not inpressed here at all. The waiting area had a foul smell. We also waited, what seemed like, forever for a table. Once seated it was loud and very smokey. We were told one of the exhaust fans was not working properly, and the manger was going to fix that ASAP. The smoke was blowing directly in our faces the entire cooking time. After complaing several times we were told they would bring us out a floor fan-which we never received. It was so smokey we could not eat until he was completly done cooking and the grill was cleaned.YUK!!!! By that time we were sick from the smell of smoke and our eyes were burning. Once we left our clothes smelled horrible-we had to go home to change-not a very nice evening out with friends. Not a great experience at all. We will never return to this place.

Have been to myrtle beach 5 times now with rather a large group of golfers, we try to make one night out of the week a japanese night. This will be our 3rd year going to this particular restaurant. The food and service are great, the entertainment is great, some chefs are better than others but over all great. The prices for what you get to eat are worth every cent. Usually you can't eat everything put in front of you. I would highly recommend if you have never tried it before. We always make reservations in advance and may wait 10 -15 min before being seated, no problem you can sit in the bar and have a drink. We have a group of 48 booked for this fall 2011 from the Atlantic Provinces, Canada.

Worst Japanese Steakhouse themed restaurant I have ever been to. Long wait to eat in a dark, hot, smokey, busy, loud, boring place with basic food. Honestly needs proper ventilation. Not Vacation quality.

I cannot tell you how disappointed we were in the service that we recieved while visiting your restaurant while on vacation this year. We brought with us 7 new guests that had never experienced the japanese dining before. We had been bragging to them for weeks about the entertainment of the chefs while dining as being as big a part of the evening as the meal. Boy were we disappointed. The chef did not even talk to us, let alone interact with his cooking - no tricks, no laughing, no fire - - - nothing ! our guests were being entertained from the surrounding tables. They accually turned their chairs to watch the other chefs preparing food for guests at nearby tables. How sad. We paid for entertainment from afar. We were so disappointed that we will try another japanese restaurant next year. Sorry...

I went to yamato's last year for my birthday and i loved it the wait staff is very nice and well organized the wait was about 10 minutes do to the restaurant being very lightly packed, but it is not always like that i've gone there many times before and it is very packed sometimes.The restaurant was very nice with apperence and i loved how it was cool when it was about 85degrees outside.Once we were seeted are waiterss showed up and took our order for drinks,salda,and food.before our chef came our waiterss gave us a fresh salda,soup,and our drinks.Once are chef arrived i was excited untile he started hitting on my mother and i did not take very kindly.Other then that the staff was very nice,the food was delicous.Although i would advise you if you get a chef with a player sticker on his sauses and spices box i would ask for a different chef if you dont want him hitting on every women at your table.

We made our annual trip to Yamato at Broadway at the Beach. As always, never have been disappointed. The food is absolutely perfect, as is the service. The chef we had was one of the best ever. Make sure you get extra "yum yum" sauce for your rice. Our server was ever in training and did a great job. Never a compliant for this place, only that dinner was over to quick, now have to wait another year.
