Yamazato is one of the most respected Japanese restaurants in Shanghai and has long been a mainstay for those seeking authentic and reasonably priced sushi and sashimi. While the raw fish is king in this quiet restaurant — done up with bright lighting and blond wood — Yamazato also offers an array of palate-pleasing cooked dishes. Presided over by executive chef Akira Kimura, the kitchen puts out a variety of tempura, teppanyaki and stewed dishes that draw heavily from traditional Japanese techniques but are often playful and lighthearted. Hosting a clientele of mostly Japanese businesspeople, Yamazato is a good place for work dinners but is also a comfortable and cheery spot for an after-work drink and sushi snack.
