Who says Old Town has all the best restaurants?  West End has several gastronomic pleasures and one of them is Yamazato. Yamazato Sushi & Spice is a Japanese-style restaurant serving sushi and teryaki at 6303 Little River Turnpike, Alexandria, VA 22312.  It’s across the street from Grand Mart, a popular international grocery store that specializes in Asian cuisine and hard to find specialties.  The phone number at Yamazato is (703) 914-8877.

Since the Grand Opening in April 2002, their commitment to innovative, outstanding food and service has won raves from critics and earned a strong loyal following from their customers.

Yamazato has received favorable reviews from The Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine and Zagat Guides. Most diners here are impressed not only with the sushi and sashimi,  but also with the generosity of the portions. My wife enjoyed the sushi. I had some tasty teryaki.
